This is a sample of our Mona dress. This dress has been used in 4 photoshoots but it’s in great condition! You couldn’t tell it’s been worn at all. All the beading is securely sewn on, not one bead is loose! The dress has no tears, stains, or signs of wear and tear.
Made out of a gorgeous, high quality taffeta, this dress has a very wide skirt made of a full circle pleated by hand at the waist. The bottom hem of this dress is 10 meters wide (33 feet) so the skirt is very wide and it drapes beautifully.
The pleats are concentrated on the hips, fanning out on the sides making the wearer look like she is wearing a shaping garment.
These pleats are reinforced with felt on the inside to give dramatic volume to the hips, thus accentuating the waist and making it look optically smaller.
The top has a deep décolletage, and a V- shaped bodice that is slightly pointed downwards, all of these techniques made to emphasize the natural curves of the body.
The bodice is heavily decorated with trim, glass beads of various shapes and a handmade baroque appliqué made of black velvet which is drawn and cut by hand by us.
All the beading, the trims and the appliqués are carefully and meticulously sewn to the dress by hand.
Mona’s sleeves are slightly pleated at the top of the shoulders and they are tight around the arms, reaching the elbow. From the elbow down, the sleeves are made of gathered black chiffon so they are very wide and they flow beautifully.
The top of the dress is boned and structured, almost like a corset. The dress is fully lined and closes at the back with eyelets.
