Meet: Style 7424
Designer: Stella York
Why we love her: Stella York’s style 7424 is a bold and beaded beauty. A structured bodice juxtaposes a flowy and bouncy skirt. This dress is a modern princess dream. The bodice is covered in delicate beading while her ball-gown skirt is tiered with voluminous layers. The bodice is supported by thin spaghetti straps; the straps are lined with silver beads and pearls.
The neckline is a classic V-shape, and the backline is a deeper V-shape. The open back will keep brides cool underneath all the beading. Front and back, the bodice is covered with bead patterns reminiscent of Cinderella’s carriage; this dress is certainly fit for a princess. The Diamante beading is a mix of pearls, silver beads, and sequins; the resulting effect is enchanting. This combination gives dimension to the bodice and highlights the intricate patterns. Brides will be able to find their perfect accessories with the mixed beading as well. The bodice is unlined, but brides are able to line it in alterations to their specific preferences if they wish.
Stella York style 7424’s bodice stops at the natural waist, where a tiered ballgown skirt starts to flow out. The lush skirt has soft, cascading layers of tulle flowing downward. Each tier of the tulle skirt is finished with a stripe of horsehair; this helps the skirt hold its volume and shape. Brides will look as if they are floating on air while they walk down the aisle in this gown. The lightweight material of the skirt will not weigh brides down; they will be able to dance all night long! The juxtaposition of the flowy skirt and the beaded bodice is dramatic yet elegant; they are two puzzle pieces that fit together perfectly. The train is chapel-length and with the fullness of the tiered skirt, the train does not need to be an extravagant length to make an extravagant statement.
The train will glide down the aisle behind brides as they make the grandest of entrances. The layered skirt will camouflage the bustle so brides can party all night long! A zipper closure holds the dress shut, and four buttons with rhinestone centers hide the zipper– a super sweet and romantic detail! This stunning wedding dress is available in Ivory with the Diamante beading, Ivory with all-ivory beading, or White with all-white beading.
She’s great for: Summer brides searching for those fairy tale princess vibes! The ballgown silhouette is dramatic yet lightweight. The open back and unlined bodice means brides will be able to keep cool in the gown, and they should feel any breeze that blows their way! Outdoor summer weddings can get hot, and this dress is the perfect solution for that. Venues that would complement 7424 include gardens, estates, and country clubs.
What makes her special: the beading on this gown can come in Diamante, which is the mixed beading described above, and it is the beading style that is on our sample gown in the store. Stella York also creates this gown in all ivory beading or all white beading. This allows brides to customize their gown and pick the coloring that suits them best. Brides can pick which beading will match their accent colors and accessories to create their dream wedding look!
