Costume and Photography: Rachel Iafigliola
Sleeping beauty is one of the classic fairytales that captivates generation after generation. A daring adventure, love’s first kiss, and wonderful characters are a few reasons why we love this story — even though we might not be too keen on falling into an enchanted sleep.
In the spirit of Sleeping Beauty, Rachel created an artful masterpiece that dazzles with details and has us dreaming of true love. This star-dusted dream gown features a princess-pink Malibu bodice embellished with gold trims.
Sleeping Beauty is probably the most recognizable iconography of all the fairy tales, so Rachel tailored this design with a self drafted bust ruffle and bodice overlay to enhance Aurora’s celebrated style.
The lavish dress was fabricated with a star studded Lexington skirt that gives the dress an extra WOW factor. The skirt was completed with a beaded pearl, tulle overlay in maxi length creating a melodramatic effect. The end result felt like the storybook exploding into our world.
After the dress was hemmed, all this little princess needed was a tiara and voilà – her transformation into Aurora was complete. We will just need to make sure she stays far far away from any spinning wheels.
