Channel evening elegance with an Elika In Love strapless gown. Soft feminine draping is juxtaposed by a deep forest green hue, finished in a luxurious silk chiffon. An exquisite silhouette for after-dark occasions, alternative bridal, or traditional bridal in a white or ivory chiffon.
This beautiful sweetheart gown is intricately hand draped with transparent silk chiffon that falls asymmetrically down into a diagonal mid thigh skirt, softly finishing in a romantic cascading train. The light sweetheart neckline is draped meticulously with silk chiffon, wrapping around to the back into a layered 2 foot train cascading to the floor. 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 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.
