Description

ABOUT THIS STYLE:

Every dress that we make is unique and one-of-a-kind. You choose every detail and fabric from hundreds of colors and types of silk, and we sketch and create the perfect dress for you.

The images show one of our most gorgeous 1950s style ball gowns.

We borrowed some of the most amazing elements from conceptual 1950s couture and reinvented them as a modern wedding dress.

The front drapery can be bustled at the sides to show more of the spectacular iridescent orange gold silk. Every part of the dress has an amazing sculpted look that moves beautifully as you walk.

The dress is entirely made from hand-underlined silk duppioni with a flexible spiral steel boned corset vest with a halter back with lacing.



PRICING:

Complex and very full silk dresses start at $1600. With the petticoats, most similar dresses will cost $1800. This price also includes our custom fitting process (see below) but doesn't include the custom silk and horsehair hat or iridescent gold freshwater pearl jewelry (which we also made to go with the dress).



ABOUT OUR DRESSES

We make some of the most beautiful and exciting custom wedding dresses available anywhere.

You choose every detail and we design something unique for you by sketching designs and sending some of the 10,000+ fabrics that we can get for a dress like this.

Each piece is completely hand underlined for a sculptural effect, and most of our dresses are made with boned detachable corsets that can be work separately from the dress.

We can make dresses for "EVERY" cup size and for every body type from PETITE to PLUS SIZE. We use a custom fitting method that involves having us send you a cotton mock-up of the dress to try on before we cut the final pieces.

This "muslin fitting" method means that, in general, local alterations are not needed and the dress fits better than an altered store bought dress because it was initially tailored for your body and your cup size.

HOW TO ORDER:

Please contact us through Etsy or by email (superhero@vigilantelabs.com) so that we can design something that is perfect for you and your event.

This vest was EXACTLY what I had envisioned for my wedding day. Lianna and the folks at Vigilante Labs were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were responsive, flexible, and had incredible attention to detail. The vest fit perfectly and was exactly how they described. They really helped to make my wedding day even more special and I would definitely recommend them!!

Here's what I love most about this designer. They have a strong vision and they absolutely know how to make a full sized woman look like a sexy well dressed sophisticated bride. My biggest concerns about making such an important purchase long distance was dispelled during the initial step by step instructions on how to get measured. The suit moved beautifully even though the material was heavy. The sewing was impeccable. The seams matched where it seemed impossible. I highly recommend with no reservations this designer. I will absolutely be a repeat customer. Thank you, Lianna and Team.
