My friend commissioned this gown as a birthday gift for his fiancé (who is also my friend Raiya Corsiglia - Director)! I'm pretty sure this is the most fabric Firefly Path as ever used in a costume, over 50 yards of fabric! When designing this costume I wanted to make a realistic version of the Disney Belle. I used gold fabrics and yellow as an accent color. The motif of roses are repeated throughout the gown in the center of the corset with rose patten brocade to the rose clusters at the edge of the overskirt. When I think of Disney's Belle Gown there are two details that first come to mind.. the ruched skirt and her sleeve swags. I put a twist on these two iconic elements by making a hi-low ruched skirt over a full skirt and made her single swag sleeve into a double swag with a pendent in the middle. <3

They should have hired you for the costume design in the 2017 live-action beauty and the beast movie, what a bummer would have liked seeing this dress on film :'(
