Description

The exquisite Athena, a signature Elika In Love gown.

Channel evening elegance with an Elika In Love strapless gown. Soft feminine draping is juxtaposed by a deep forest green hue, finished in a luxurious silk chiffon. An exquisite silhouette for after-dark occasions, alternative bridal, or traditional bridal in a white or ivory chiffon.

Details:

This beautiful sweetheart gown is intricately hand draped with transparent silk chiffon that falls asymmetrically down into a diagonal mid thigh skirt, softly finishing in a romantic cascading train. The light sweetheart neckline is draped meticulously with silk chiffon, wrapping around to the back into a layered 2 foot train cascading to the floor. This gown also has a hidden invisible zipper at the back that is secured with a hook+eye, as well as a hidden interior bra closure which allows for a close fit without pinching the skin. Soft interior boning with thinly padded cups in the bodice allow for light structure and shape, while the fully lined silk bodice give comfort and breathability, even on the hottest day.

    A beautiful dress, simple but very elegant, comfortable to wear and as nice as shown on the photo. I am very happy with this dress and look forward to wear it soon.
    Hrissa was very helpful and I can recommend orderin a dress, especially the Persephone I decided for.
    Persephone | by Elika In Love. A Victorian inspired short lace wedding dress. A gorgeous illusion lace dress, where Modern meets Boho Chic.

    This skirt has been my staple for years. I have small nightmares of one day not having it anymore and so I contacted Hrissa and pleaded for a redo. She was kind and helpful and kept me informed through the whole process about material, specifics and timing. It fits like magic. It is Magic. Thank you!!!

    The Persephone dress is exactly like shown in the pictures and of very high quality! I fell in love with the details and it’s unique style even more once it arrived and had only a few alterations to be done. It will be perfect for our garden/ beach destination. Before ordering online, a lot of fears came into my mind, but Hrissa found solutions for all of them to calm my nerves and to assure everything would be ok if my worst case scenarios would appear (but they didn’t! :-). She made everything to accommodate me and ordering from her rather felt like interacting with a friend. When ordering online it naturally can be nerveracking until you receive your dress, but Elika in love is the best way to do it and I can recommend it to anybody!!! Can’t wait to add pictures after the wedding in august, this dress is so stunning!
