This design is based on the gowns brought back from the crusades of the 12th Century.
The gown features wide draped trailing sleeves in chiffon, V-shaped neckline and a soft embroidered girdle belt. Tablet woven braids with geometrical patterns were often used as decorations on garments, but the 'Galienne' gown is decorated with embroidered trims based on a 12th century
stone carving design instead.
The gown is laced down the back, with handmade cords, through hand-sewn holes. All hems and details are hand-finished. The gown is made from hand-woven Dupion silk with sleeves in crinkled chiffon with handmade cords for gathering. It is fully lined with acetate satin.
It comes with a matching medieval style pouch bag.
Gown is shown in no 50 Inca Gold with embroidery in Sultan Gold.
