In this gauzy light...

A bride stopped by The English Dept. last fall looking for a cozy cover-up to go over her wedding dress (a gorgeous champagne and apricot silk chiffon cocktail dress by Alberta Ferretti). Not finding what she wanted off the rack, I custom made a little '60s style short jacket for her. Feather-light wool gauze in a deep cream color, and an antique rhinestone button. This photo, which she just sent me, perfectly captures her soft, effortless beauty. This is the kind of project I love.
