This is the "super sexy fun party dress" version of the Draped Halter Gown in Ivory! It was designed for the gal who wants to stand out and get noticed! It's incredibly wearable, because the cut is so forgiving and the cotton fabric so luxuriously soft. Brides (and their friends!) have even said it was the most comfortable thing they've ever worn! This is a top seller for Elika In Love, and was one of our first designs that really defined the look and feel of the brand.
Each dress is completely handmade in the studio, from start to finish. Your dress will be draped on a dress form with the finest and most beautiful cotton fabric. As such, your dress is individual and unique, using hand detailing, draping, and stitching. The grecian inspired cowl neckline is connected at the back with ties that you can either connect in a loose knot or in a little bow. The halter top has beautiful hand detailing along the bust, which folds across to the back along the edge, cascading into a voluminous bustle. The back is very low and sexy, and is finished with one hook+eye, and an invisible zipper. Most clients choose to either wear an adhesive bra or go without. Keep in mind that the dress is fully lined, so it is possible to go without a bra if you would prefer.
Since each dress is individually hand crafted, draping detail, bustle size, and hem length will vary slightly. If you have a preference on length or angle of the asymmetrical hemlines, draping along the bust, or depth of the open back, please let me know and I can follow your requests at no extra charge.

This style is very modern, simple, and elegant. This design was originally custom made for a client to wear to the Oscars! The skirt is just lovely; cut on a bias so that it hugs the body nicely, while still being forgiving because of the medium weight silk satin. Gowns cut on the true bias, like this one, hug the hips, move like water, and fall away from the body beautifully.
Beautiful bias cut floor length gown made with medium weight silk satin. The light sweetheart neckline and mid back design allow the perfect presentation for statement jewelry, or a light pendant. This gown also has a hidden invisible zipper at the back that is secured with a hook+eye, as well as a hidden interior bra closure which allows for a close fit without pinching the skin. Soft interior boning with thinly padded cups in the bodice allow for light structure and shape, while the fully lined silk bodice give comfort and breathability, even on the hottest day. This dress offers a beautifully elegant silhouette as the bias cut skirt flows as you move. Simple elegance at its best.

This beautiful and modern dress was inspired by the classic simplicity of Danish design combined with the romanticism of ancient Greece. While maintaining a highly wearable shape, this dress is also provocative and unique in the detailing of the feminine tulip sleeves. It is a timeless little black dress that would become a staple in any woman's wardrobe!
This beautiful dress is made from a lovely crepe fabric that is wrinkle free and provides the perfect drape for the tulip sleeve, while being incredibly comfortable and flowy on the body. On most women the hem sits a 3-4 inches above the knee, and the sleeves are elbow length. There is a back slit that is finished with a black button, offering a sexy detail at the back neck. The dress is fully lined with the same fabric its made from, with the lining being an inch longer than the dress, revealing a sexy transparent layered hem.

This little black dress is the ultimate go-to for evenings with champagne and lots of dancing! Each dress is hand draped individually on a dress-form with beautiful flowy black satin fabric, which has an amazing drape and light matte finish that is both sexy and forgiving. The body of this backless dress is cut on a bias, allowing the wearer a close fit without the dress being tight in any way. The fabric is also slightly heavier weight than regular satin with a light stretch, making it a dream to wear.
Each dress is individual and unique, using hand draping, cutting, and sewing. The back is very low and sexy, and is finished with one hook + eye and an invisible zipper. Each dress has a single layer of fabric, and a elegant bustle in the back. Most clients choose to either wear an adhesive bra or go without a bra completely. Keep in mind that the dress is fully lined, so it is possible to go without a bra if you would prefer.
