I had always, like most, wanted to feel like a goddess from the very beginning of my wedding day. I had seen the bride and her bridal party with the matching dressing gown trend gaining traction all over social media. It was definitely a theme that showcased a more elegant and exquisite setting for formal photos from start to finish. I adored the theme and played with the concept in my own mind for a while – I wanted to encapsulate this, but with my own individuality in mind.
As I went on my hunt for inspiration I had noticed a UK fashion blogger; Claire Channelle, had worn and adorned an Amanda Barden Couture Robe for BOTH of her weddings. Her images and eloquence were similar to what I had envisioned for my own day and after laying eyes on the Bianca Robe I knew I had hit heirloom gold. This wasn’t just a dressing gown, it was such a delicately handcrafted statement piece that it was on level with my wedding dress. The Bianca Robe had set the stakes high.
The movement of the extravagant kimono sleeves with the follow of the tulle train behind were exactly the kind of details a girl needed getting ready in a heritage listed Portuguese Bishops House established over a hundred years ago in the incredibly beautiful and picturesque; Goa, India. The setting in itself had traditionally encompassed a conservative and impressively grand standard yet the Bianca Robe had met those standards tenfold.
I can look back fondly remembering running around with the flicker of sparkle from my shoes peaking through as the tulle encapsulated my chase from behind as I went from room to room. This robe will be with me forever and will be a piece to pass down for generations. This isn’t just a dressing gown; this is a work of art.
