It started with this image posted on Haute Macabre. I became infatuated with this dress... obsessed... nothing could compare. I contacted the polish designer Gosia Baczynska and inquired—is it possible this could be my wedding dress?
The lace is exquisite—a unusual geometric lace, different from the typical floral laces wedding gowns are usually made with. Day after day of scouring the internet, I actually tracked down the lace source. Made in France, the unique lace design was created by Solstiss. Distracted by the lace itself, I visited Solstiss's New York showroom. I was blown away at how incredibly amazing their lace designs are. I wanted yardage of dozens—I could just wrap myself in it and prance down the aisle.
(The lace pattern below haunts me.)
Lucky for me, Gosia had a dress in my size and, no need to worry, she makes the dress in white as well. After emails back and forth to Poland, about a month before my wedding, I received my dress in a gothic style black satin garment bag. I couldn't have been happier.
