I‘m always being asked “What part do you like to do the best?” My answer is…the “frosting”! The right “frosting” can make or break a gown and there are several factors to consider: the event, the location, the wearer, the lighting, the season, and even the weather.
There are some frosting bits that are permanently installed such as embroidery, lesage, beading, or applique. Other elements can be removable like bows, sashes, and corsages. There’s a distinct satisfaction with frosting…it’s a sign that the gown’s status is close to finished. <3
