Sketch to Dress: Spring 2013

See how some of our favorite designers turned their sketches into beautiful wedding dresses

Lela Rose

Attention Lela Rose fans: The designer is looking for "a girl who loves the illusion of lace but wants that feel in handcrafted embroidery" for her Spring 2013 season. Displaying a deft hand at creating understated gowns, the designer began with tulle as the base for this dress, layering in embroidered filigree silk and shaped godets to form the fit-and-flare silhouette, resulting in what Rose calls "organic couture." (For the non-couturiers, a godet is a circular piece of fabric set into a garment for added volume.)
