'Peitho'; a dramaticic blood red coloured full length evening or alternative wedding dress in finest-quality 100% silk chiffon and silk satin with a matching silk chiffon hooded cloak.
The close fitting integral 100% silk satin under dress has a structured bodice with a sweetheart neckline, and flared silk satin skirt. The over layer is a double layer of very finely pleated and draped 100% silk crepe chiffon, which moves and flows in a beautifully fluid way.
The dress closes at the centre back with little silk covered buttons and rouleau loops, and is fully lined in silk (so 4 layers in total).
There is also a matching silk chiffon cloak, with dramatic hood and long flowing neck ties.
This is a really beautiful elegant design, and a real future heirloom piece. It has been tried on a few times, and has been used in a photo-shoot or two, but it is in excellent near immaculate condition, with no marks as far as I can see apart from a minor smudge or two towards the hem. This is one of the studio samples, which occasionally get sold off at a fraction of the original cost (60-75% reduction) at intervals to make way for fabulous new creations. (Unfortunately these are all generally in the smaller sizes, UK6-10)
Owing to the unique custom made nature of these samples I don't offer returns, so please be sure to check the measurements below before buying. These are the measurements of the standard UK size 8 mannequin which the dress fits perfectly .
We do ship internationally, and I have included some figures for a few of the more popular destinations, but if your country is not listed please get in touch for an accurate shipping quote before completing checkout.
