Meet Lovely Bride Amanda

A couple of years ago, I sold this 1970s Hanae Mori silk evening gown to Amanda. She had been searching for a unique dress to use for her wedding. Amanda has a wonderful vision and knew she could remake this dress into her bridal gown. I normally don't advocate reworking vintage, but in this instance I think Amanda has done a brilliant job and she made a truly unique and one-of-a-kind wedding dress.

Here is Amanda on her wedding day. She changed the dress lining from coral to green, removed the long sleeves, and reworked the neckline. Isn't she beautiful?
