Model Robin Moss contacted me this past summer and convinced me to make her a wedding dress for a photo shoot she was organizing. Robin has modeled for me in the past for a Knot Couture shoot. As it turns out, it so happened to be with a photographer I’ve worked with in the past. His name is Kevin Voth, and he has contributed his talent to Knot Couture’s archives several times. He captured some great shots of Robin, and as always, I’m very happy with the results.

Let me begin with the inspiration for the dress. Robin told me she wanted something flowy, so she can ride a horse in it . I decided to keep the design simple, and add an element to it that would suit this cowgirl’s style: denim. I know this was going to require a little work, as far a fabric manipulation to get it to look more elegant. I added a lace overlay and cut out the negative space. I then beaded over the lace with gold and rose gold bugle beads and gold glass pearls. The skirt was tulle and the body of the dress is made from silk dupioni. The sash is detachable and is made out of silk georgette.

For Knot Couture’s ’Amber Haze’ photo shoot, I played the role once again, as MUA. Actually, this time I ended up styling hair as well. It was a very unique experience working on someone else’s hair other then my own. The idea was to do a low side pony tail with a small poof. The makeup was a little more colorful, with dark a dark smudge of shadow and black liner. The result came out much better then expected! This gown was modeled by Christine Bridges and photographed by Tress Ritter.
More photos of ‘Amber Haze’ will be up on the website soon. Check out more of the spring 2011 collection at www.myknotcouture.com.
