Calypso is a nymph from Greek mythology who kept Odysseus as prisoner on an island. Nice curves, a little sparkle, and a sweet sachet. I wonder if that's all it took for Calypso to keep him there. How do you plan to captivate your groom on your wedding day?
Thinking just that is what lead me to build this dress. Body hugging curves, some shiny beading and an eye catching silhouette is what I came up with.
Now when I picture a nymph that lives on an island I also think mermaid. So I gave it an impressive train that is the length of the dress itself.
Silver leaf appliques wrap the neck line and across one shoulder. Also available in crystal clear.
Please look past the fact that it is a little large. My model went on a diet without my knowledge prior to the photo session. It was made to hug the curves of her previous measurements.
As all bridal fabrics come in either silk or polyester I will need to know which you prefer. FYI: Silk costs three times more than polyester. It can be made in white, ivory, cream, or beige. If you have yet another color preference please ask. Color samples are welcome.
