joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

...And another gown post. it is unbelievable, I know but not on purpose. My wonderful boyfriend who is by the way celebrating his 29th birthday today (January 17) informed me that we had this schedule basically: one weekend, two weddings. Granted I am one who is always so enthusiastic about weddings and anything to do with marriage, I was more excited than displeased and of course being one all for the motif, I was pleased to find out the wedding called for beach formal attire with the color theme in shades of blue. I would've probably gone to the traditional hues I trust: turquoise, aquamarine or blue green but I was all for taking risks that weekend and so, I decided to choose Cobalt Blue as my color with a chartreuse accent (if you must know I am very fond of the color) which I designed to be peplum (to avoid being too plain). Since it was a beach wedding, I kept the fabric light and easy by using satinized cotton twill which was useful since it was less shiny and more matte... more appropriate for an outdoor wedding. I love being able to design my own dresses and having them made for me by my own sewers for my brand because I dictate the direction of the design and of course, have complete control of the fit. If you must know, Dominique and I have decided to make Glitterati less RTW and more luxe and we now specialize in more made to order and custom made pieces usually formal ones for proms, weddings or dressy occasions instead of being retail. We're growing up... and so is the brand... I have to say. Since I am less frail and more meaty now (bye bye ruler), I added a chartreuse belt to the gown so I can emphasize curves, which complimented the illusion the peplum cut provided. I am obsessed with the combination of the two colors and this was the perfect occasion I got to wear them... it was my chance and I was so excited.
