The exhibition showcases examples of exquisite contemporary gowns from well-known Australians at the vanguard of international wedding fashion.
We are very pleased to announce that two of our bridal outfits are included in the display - our bridal clients, Sonya Muller & Kevin had their wedding featured in the exhibition.
This was such a fun wedding for us to be involved with - think medieval meets tudor meets victorian with a touch of burlesque thrown in, at the most beautiful venue in Melbourne - Monsalvat.
Here is an image of Sonya and Kevin in front of their wedding outfits at the Love is: Australian Wedding Fashion Exhibition.
If you have a theme for your wedding and would like us to create your dream wedding gown or ensemble in the realm of gothic victorian, steampunk, medieval or fantasy then please get in touch with us: My Dream Wedding
