  Conrnish tartan and Midnight velvet...October 31st 2007

Sarah Jain was married on a lovely sunny Samhain at Studley castle, warwickshire. There were vary specific things that she wanted to be incorporated in her dress. Sarah Jain originates from cornwall, (her husband, dad and son were to be wearing the cornish tartan kilts) and wanted to use the Cornish tartan in her design, but without having the tartan taking over, and also having a colour that suited her. The corset was made from a rich midnight blue crushed velvet, with the skirt in deep peacock blue, and the sleeves in a green/purple shot silk chiffon. Swarovski crystals in varying shades were also applied to the corset and sleeves to give it that magical sparkle to go with the moment of the dress. Over the corset were applied textured pieces to incorporate the other colours from the tartan, red and gold, and also pieces of the tartan silk itself. This silk tartan was also used in the lining of the skirt, so when Sarah Jain held up the skirt for walking, this fabric was a surprise detail.
