02 Mar Dress of the Month February: The Sophia Tolli designed Ibis Wedding Dress
“My bridal collection has two distinct feelings: soft classic romanticism and traditional bridal drama. My signature style will always be gowns with an exceptional fit and cut.”
Sophia Tolli’s bridal collections have always featured an array of gorgeous, show-stopping designs. The Ibis dress is no different.
This dress is what modern fairy tales are made of. The structured body and strapless corset brings the dress into the 21st century with those beautiful layers of tulle creating the whimsical silhouette of a princess bride.
Eyes are drawn to the asymmetrically dropped waist and the strapless sweetheart neckline with the sparkling hand-beaded lace applique on the bodice. There are also detachable lace straps to add to the look if the bride prefers.
Tiers of shimmering misty tulle create that ethereal look with the back of the dress just as breathtaking as the front. Look at that corset and chapel length train! The bride will look just as stunning from the back as she does from the front.
It truly is a magical dress and a signature look for Sophia Tolli, the talented designer from Australia. A seamstress since her early teens, Sophia grew up surrounded by fabrics, sewing machines and dress patterns.
As with so many designers, a close family member influenced her early foray into the industry. Sophia’s aunt was a talented dressmaker who handmade the majority of Sophia’s wardrobe and allowed Sophia to select her own fabrics.
During college, Sophia challenged traditional sewing techniques and explored alternative methods of dressmaking. She believes her expertise in fit and construction is a result of both her childhood training under her aunt’s watchful eye and her college education.
In 2010 Sophia won Wedding Dress of the Year at the Harrogate Bridal Buyer Awards in the United Kingdom.
The Ibis dress comes in three colours – French beige / Ivory, Ivory and White is available in sizes 0 – 28.
A magical dress for a magical day.
