Style Spotlight - The' Au Ritz Wedding Tea Dress

An elegantly dressed woman strolls down the Place Vendome on her way to a lavish affair at the Ritz, Paris. Her designer kitten heels clattering on the cobbles, her pillbox chapeaux delicately adorned with an assortment of gems, glittering as they catch the afternoon light - and her feather-trimmed tea dress wafting in her stride.

She ascends the stairs and enters the lobby, champagne glasses are filling and she walks the room in search of the perfect partner.  

Can you picture the scenario? It is the story of how this tea length gown came into being. Simple and elegant with a sense of whimsy, the design is aimed to evoke joy and a yearning to want to dance.

Our Thé Au Ritz - Tea At The Ritz - wedding dress was partly inspired by a mid-century Pierre Balmain evening gown. A clean and minimal early 1960s silhouette with the trademark pop of fun synonymous with the era. This gown represents the frivolity and merriment of high society in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s.

Elegantly designed on the outside, this tea length wedding gown features a concealed soft corset. A soft corset isn’t there to cinch your body into shape, it is there to offer support to the overall style of the dress. It will provide the structure that is needed to maintain the aesthetic appeal of the gown while giving comfort to the bride. The t-shirt style neckline gives this gown a softened, more casual look, ideal for a cocktail style vintage affair. Its gathered tulip style skirt sits softly over the top of a feathered petticoat. The coloured feathers have been purposely selected to add contrast against the white silk taffeta, giving this gown it’s sense of fun and personality.

To complete this 60’s style gown, the finishing touch, an oversized handed beaded bow. The knotted bow is narrow in profile yet large in size, adding to the sense of whimsy and fun around which the style has been created.
