Hayley started life as an off-cut of lace and the left-over end of a georgette roll. I loved the contrast of black with ivory, the big scallops and the little eyelashes on the lace edge. I also wanted to create something light, packable and easy to wear – after meeting brides looking to get married on exotic beaches. The structure of the bodice, with the soft gathering of the skirt at the waist, is the perfect mix to accentuate the curves of the figure, whilst also giving the wearer height and slenderness.
