Carolyn Keyes Dress Designer

Design Examples - Anna

Anna is my god-daughter, so it was lovely designing for someone I know so well!

She was having a traditional country church wedding in the Cotswolds; at first she thought she would go for a slim slinky style, but actually, she adores ball gown styles!
Less is more for her (she's such a pretty girl anyway), but she did love the luxurious feel of silk duchesse satin, which I used, wrapped and cut with soft curves. I persuaded her to have a spray of pearls and crystals to enhance her waist line, and a couple more bunched in the skirt... and that was it, with a classic buttoned back. Simple but beautiful.

Other examples: Ellie, Claudia, Karolina, Charlotte Lucy, Diana, Faye, Allison, Carolyn & Martine.
