A sample ensemble made of custom designed and printed silk twill, with motifs of dark purple and black clematis flowers. The ensemble comprises of a longline padded bra and skirt, originally upcycled from a gown from 2017's Un|Seelie collection after it sustained damage from spilled acrylic glue.
The longline bra features foam padded cups, spiral steel bones encased in cotton twill channels, machine stitched lace appliqué and signature adjustable satin strap wings, fastening with hooks and eyes. It is lined in cotton tulle. It also comes with detachable cross back shoulder straps with lace cap sleeves.
The coordinating skirt has a waist panel of pattern matched French lchantilly eavers lace. The body of the skirt is made of bias cut silk twill. The centre back fastens with satin loops and a row of Swarovski crystal buttons. Throughout the body of the silk skirt there are areas of French lace appliqué with the silk backing cut out. These areas of appliqué cover the original damaged areas of the gown.
The set has been used in some photoshoots, and contains wear and tear throughout due to several washing attempts. It is not sewn to a retail standard. This is reflected in the heavily discounted price. A similar bespoke ensemble would be in the region of 50,000NOK.
The bra is adjustable in the wings through band sizes 30-34. It is recommended for a UK bra size 30D/32C/34B, but the generously cut cups could also work for a cup size up. The skirt is recommended for a UK 10 with a 30" waistband, and is intended to sit just below the natural waist. The body of the skirt is bias cut so may have some fit flexibility.
