Louise Newt

Red Devil/ Newt!- 2008

This is a real clients commission. But as it was not for a wedding, and Louise was happy to let Uptight take some shots of her in her gown,in her garden.

Louise had a variation on the Red Devil design, with the same victorian silhouette, a swaged front skirt, but with the back not having a train, so wearable to balls etc.. The corset was a curvaceous victorian style cut, with personalized embroidery, of waves and newts, inspired by the newts in Louise pond! It also had the removable draped beaded sleeves from the Isis design. The back lacing was in black and read, as the silk was shot black red too. Also made to compliment the dressing was a stunning hand dyed silk chiffon wrap.
