So much of my work is about the dream of romance, and I LOVE it! The fantasy and beauty are what inspire my soul and make life worth living. I was in a particularly enchanted frame of mind when I dreamt up this gown called Heart’s Desire. Draping this beautiful embroidery on my mannequin, I held the flower just so…and the rosebud gracefully fell across her heart. It made MY heart skip a little beat, as I couldn’t imagine a more romantic piece of clothing for a bride. I can just see the luscious bouquet, the gold wreath, the gorgeous décor that will be paired with this dress. And what a truly magical, breath-taking, unexpected way to show your devotion to the man you will marry, than to wear the symbol of eternal love on your heart.
