The ‘Dahlia’ dress is a dramatic blush pink soft sheer mesh gown with a contrasting gold and black heavy lace detail on the neckline, the hem and fading up the dress on the front and back. The dramatic pointed train is symbolic of the 1920s drawing the eye to the very end of the stunning embroidered lace.
The lace features a dahlia flower which means ‘standing out from the crowd’ this is reflected in the dramatic design of the dress and the colours. The gold/peach colour represents the meaning of ‘confidence’ and ‘success’.
Madeleine’s confident poses wearing this dress fitted perfectly with the dark stairway lit seductively with candles. Creating a unique path, this is also associated with the dahlia flower. A lot of the shots show Madeline looking up towards the light of the stairway as though she is on a journey of discovery.
