Fairy Lore & Design Concept
This was the first dress I made in the Masquerade Fairy Collection. I asked my friend Brittany to model for me, and she proved to be the perfect model for this dress, portraying an image of innocence and elegance that truly befit a princess from a classic fairy tale. Lucky for us, it was cherry blossom season at Balboa Park in Van Nuys, California, so I called Indigo and planned a photo shoot under the trees. When I first started watching anime like “Sailor Moon” I though it was so romantic when cherry blossom petals fluttering around the characters. Seeing Brittany being so beautiful under the cherry trees was a dream come true. I think the pink trees and blue of the dress are such wonderfully complimentary colors together.
The inspiration for her gown came from her necklace. I found the leafy necklace set on e-bay and though how lovely it would be to find fabric with that same leafy design. Lucky I found just what I was looking for, both the white embroidered organza and blue taffeta has the leafy pattern. On the neckline and armband I sewed random gems and lacy bits. I like to think that this fairy attached these ornaments she found to her gown, little things that are precious to her.
