Bridal gown for Georgianne

When Georgianne modeled for me at my very first fashion show in San Francisco in 2011 – I knew that some day I was going to make her her wedding dress!

VioGemini bridal gownVioGemini bridal gownVioGemini bridal gownIt was the fashion show with RAW ARTISTS in San Francisco in June 2011 at 111 Minna.

I hadn’t met any of my models and I was not able to fit the dresses on them prior to the show.

You can imagine that I was quite worried about this situation and especially about the fit of my newest dress APHRODITE…

When Georgianne walked into the make-up room I knew that she was going to rock this dress!

Just look at these pictures!

Georgianne modeled for me many times since then – always gorgeous and radiant!

And when my dear Georgy asked me to make her dream wedding dress for her I was incredibly happy to finally be able to use all my creativity and skills to make her wish come true!

Georgianne was a perfect Bride-to-be.
She talked to me about her wedding theme, her favorite colors and showed me inspirations for her bridal gown.

The wedding was going to take place at Cabo in October 2013.

And so, I designed a bridal  gown with lace overlay and mermaid shape skirt, although I was not yet sure how I was going to create the texture on the skirt.

Well, the dress in this picture is NOT her wedding dress 🙂 This one is the dress from that fashion show in 2011.

One very important feature of the new wedding dress is that it was going to be

TRANSFORMABLE!

Want to see the dress?
I will show you the process of making the dress in my next couple of blogs. Don’t forget to follow us!

VioGemini Bridal Boutique

Last Friday, on November 29th we officially opened the window displays of our new store in Fremont, Niles district.

We did that during the Christmas Tree Lighting Parade organized by the City of Fremont and Niles Merchants Association. The tree lighting and parade have been held annually for more than a decade and have become holiday traditions in Niles district.

It happens that our boutique is located right off Niles Boulevard, so all the participants and a lot of visitors walked by the store. Great publicity for our new Bridal Boutique!

So, in our boutique a future bride can order a unique and exclusive wedding gown designed and made especially for her, as well as all the accessories she or her bridesmaids may need.  We also do bridal gown alterations and re-designing wedding gowns.

No more boring white and ivory weddings! We offer a wide range of colors, any accessory can be matched to a wedding color theme and pallet.

Enjoy the pictures!

Black and White

Black and White gowns by VioGemini

viogemini black and white wedding gownsThe white dress is actually a corset with a skirt, the black one is a one-piece dress.

Bottoms of both gowns are smocked by hand and a rhinestone is sewn in the middle of each pleat. I don’t remember now exactly, but I think it I used about 7 yards of fabric just for the pleated part. Do you like?
