Prom Tales 2012: Part 3 (Final Part)

Last one in this series is Dolly. Dolly had a pretty clear idea of what she wanted, she had a design sketch and had bought some ankara fabric too. When she showed it to me, I thought hmm this is different. I wasn't too sure it'd be ideal for a prom. In her own words, here is what she wanted: "Initially I wanted to have a dress which was one-armed with some native attire on the top of the body and the bottom as a shorter skirt with chiffon of a complementary colour on the top being short at the front and longer at the back. But I was open to any adjustments and was flexible with any changes she wanted to make." 

At first, I thought I could run with it and make it work. However, when I was out fabric shopping, I decided to call Dolly and share a new idea that I had with her. I tried not to stray too far from what she wanted. Dolly was trusting and let me run with the new idea. I really like the outcome, however, I feel like it was circumstantial and it isn't really what I would've thought to do. I think with this one, you either like it or you don't.

Dolly is an absolute natural beauty, we did this shoot after her very long day out with no makeup on. Stunner!

Dolly Says: "Then ultimately she found this wine-coloured material which I loved and she came up with a cute design which was a little different from what we had originally. I was so pleased with the outcome and loved the detail she put into it. It's such an elegant and glamorous dress."
Dolly turned 18 yesterday! Woohoo! So this is also to wish her a happy birthday! Enjoy the celebrations. Mwah!
