The ‘Lily’ dress is a stunning silver duchess satin gown with an intricate blush pink lace overlay and a delicate silver sequin embellishment. The lace comprises of subtle lily flowers in the design, playfully emphasised with hand sewn blush pink bead droppers imitating the stamen of the lily flower. The dress is complemented with a typical 1920s style fringed flapper dress bodice, a traditional ‘cloche’ hat complete with a 3D lily flower and covered in bead droppers.
The belt, not traditional with the 1920s, but taking this design into today’s modern fashion, gives a vintage look with the pearl embellishment.The lily (day lily) has a secret meaning of flirtation, which is portrayed in this design combining femininity with the movement of the bead droppers.This is also reflected in the blush pink colour of the dress which invokes femininity and playfulness.
The images show Madeline standing on a ladder in various playful poses, surrounded with old furniture and vintage gramophones, which reflect all the meanings behind this beautiful 1920s inspired dress design.
