DESIGN NOTES FROM VERA WANG:
Kathleen is a striking mermaid gown with a very sensual flair.
I love a dress with an unadorned, minimalist bodice, with just a very subtle layering or fabric-construction to create interest. The smooth construction of a mermaid gown can be a little intimidating, which is one reason so many brides love the stretch Mikado constructions I’ve used in my collections recently. Stretch Mikado is a silk weave fabric is made with stretch fibers that gather in the silhouette to really contour a woman’s body. It’s a perfect material for a form-fitting mermaid shape, like this one, because there’s no stiffness, so you can still move around in it. From the back, the gown is so wonderfully smooth and sheer, like it’s been sculpted from solid material. It’s quite seductive.
The bodice isn’t completely flat, however. There are several strategic points where the fabric of the gown is softly, subtly draped: across the bust, at the top of the hip, below the hip.
The wild artistry of the base of the skirt contrasts so deliciously with the clean, controlled upper part of the gown. It’s fantastically frothy, so light and airy. It’s been built up from layered tissue organza and honeycomb tulle using my inverted flange technique. It’s an elaborate way to build up volume, wildness, passion, and tonality in the dress
