'The Wine Harvest' Gown

As you may have seen on the Facebook page, I've been flat out working towards my deadline for my 'secret  design project'. Here it is at last, I can finally reveal, 'The Wine Harvest' Gown! 

Inspired by Wine harvesting, the deep grape-coloured satin flows like wine, cascading over the female form, softened with organza 'leafy' flounces & embellished with glass-jewel grapes. Using 'up-cycled' fabric to promote renewing & recycling. This gown is an entrant in the McLaren Vale Harvest Festival, Jan 2012. Stay tuned to see if it is accepted in the exhibit! 

The fashion shoot was above & beyond my imagination, everyone worked so well together to achieve the desired outcome, it was very amazing to watch it all unfold. A note of gratitude also to Woodstock Wine Estate for allowing us to shoot on location in their vineyard, it completed the garment & I am so grateful.

  1. Wow Belinda! This dress is amazing. You've really expanded and grown as a designer since I modelled for you in your final year of study. I can see big things!

    Well done :D
