Vivienne Westwood Astral Wedding Dress
Price available on request
This gown takes inspiration from an archive jersey look, originally worn by Jerry Hall in the Spring-Summer 1999 Gold Label collection titled – La Belle Helene. Employing an advanced pattern cutting technique, one unique piece of seamless fabric is used to create the bodice and sleeves, cleverly draped and tucked to create the voluminous shoulders and ruching across the bodice. The Astral features an inner bralette corset, with the option to tuck the drapery to create a subtle heart-shaped neckline, which can be worn on or off the shoulder. The train can be lengthened and the long tapered sleeves, which are finished with a row of fabric covered buttons, can be shortened as preferred.
Available in a pearl white stretch drape satin, which comprises 79% acetate and 18% viscose certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This guarantees wood fibre used in fabrics we source come from FSC™ certified forests that have been audited by a third-party on their environmental, social and economic standards. We also partner with Canopy to support their goal of protecting the world’s forests by working to eliminate Ancient and Endangered Forests from wood fibre sourcing for fabrics and packaging. The remaining 3% of the fabric is elastane.
