For Marriage

Le Bouton Marriage
An idea that came to me strongly in Summer 2015. I did not actualize it. I was thinking at the time about newly approved marriage equality, and how YESSS! that was. How cool it will be when it's  normalcy just IS. When equality just is. 
I remember then talking marriage clothes to a few people, but the idea drifted away. I suppose it was because the images of the dresses were not in my mind. Now they are, after a year, they came in a flash that could not be resisted. This new expression in clothing is almost guiding itself. It's a bit of a command! Here is the concept talking to me : The Party Dress would like to be a wedding dress - it wants to be made in silk, actually, all of your dresses want to be wedding dresses - make that so - and you must do it this way - you must hand sew everything. They will be the loveliest dresses. There is nothing like them, and they must exist.

This is the first dress, the first style.

I am so proud, and happy.
