Vera Wang Katherine Wedding Dress

My dress was purchased at the Beverly Hills Saks Fifth Avenue bridal boutique.  I felt like a princess on my wedding day because of this beautiful gown.  When I started looking for a wedding dress I knew it was going to be a Vera Wang and no other dress could compare to the Katherine ball gown.  There is such glamour and timelessness to this dress.  I welcome any serious bride-to-be buyers in the Southern CA area to come see the dress.    

As for the condition of the dress, it is very clean and looks like new.  The only exception is a small dirt stain in the inner layer along the edge as well as two small tears also within the inner layers.  These are not noticeable from the outside of the dress.  

Vera Wang website: The first thing that hits you with Katherine is the grandeur of the ballgown, and immediately it conjures the romantic, old-world fantasy of chivalry and stately ceremony and long hallways with footmen. You could see Katherine posed under a very opulent chandelier in a manor house, or framed beside an heirloom urn. And yet, it’s also a dress that breathes a very contemporary atmosphere. It has subtlety, it has a lot of artistic touches, a lot of life. Between the layers and layers of tulle and organza there’s nothing but air, so as the dress moves, and the shadows and tones become lighter, or darker, through those waves of fabric – you get a magnificent ballet of color and shadow. It’s especially splendid where you see these gatherings of bustled crinoline, creating asymmetrical figures in the line of the gown, like you see in the back, where it’s just a bit over the top in the way it’s been tacked up. In the front, there are beautiful blooms hand-rolled out of eyelash organza, just peeking out as if from a neatly-wrapped bouquet.

The gown’s natural waist, which is veiled with horsehair, draws right in for that trim hourglass silhouette, which is so classically seductive. There’s no lace or beading here: all the visual impact flows directly from the volume and the sculptural qualities of the fabric, for a consummately couture presentation.


Dress Alterations
