The Francesca dress is a fully embellished gown with full tulle godets giving a striking silhouette. The embellishment combines an applique of lace trims with tromp l’oeil lace stitch embroidery. Panels of platinum white sequins, sequin linked daisy chains and stripes of crystal navette stones adorn the lace elements to elevate this dress into a truly dazzling contemporary gown. The inspiration for the artwork was taken from Edwardian era lace blouses from Parisian archives in the time of the Ballet Russes. The graphic and linear placement of the lace embroidery gives a modern take on these antique references to appeal to the modern Temperley bride.
