The creation of Mother-of-the-Bride Cynthia’s custom gown from sketch to dancing into her daughter’s wedding Reception Hall.

Cynthia wore a 3-piece ensemble to her daughter’s wedding. A pale gold organza chemise with 3/4 length sleeves, a strapless corset in pale gold duchesse satin overplayed with blue and gold guipure lace and a floor length trumpet silhuette skirt in blue duchesse satin with a modified A-line overskirt in pale gold organza. All pieces were embellished with hand-cut appliques harvested from a single piece of lace.

The look was completed with a Gele (head wrap) as a nod to her Yoruba heritage.

Wedding location – London, England.
