THE DRESS

DRUM Weddings - - TUMI & PETER -

Tumi knew ex­actly what she wanted for her dress and de­signer David Tlale made her dream a re­al­ity. “Start­ing with a ba­sic idea, the fi­nal prod­uct came to­gether over a pe­riod of four months. I wanted a ball­gown sil­hou­ette, but not the tra­di­tional over-puffed kind. I wanted drama in the de­tail but not in size,” she says. The el­e­gant oys­ter-coloured dress was made of im­ported Du­pi­oni silk and the draped bodice had beaded lace. She paired the off-shoul­der style with a floor­length veil of oys­ter-coloured French tulle. The de­signer also or­gan­ised the jew­ellery so they would go well with the dress. |9
