The Dress

I fell instantly in love with the ivory Nahla gown from Mariana Hardwick, when I tried it on in their flagship store in Melbourne. It is tagged as a size 8, but has been substantially altered and it more likely to fit a size 6 or small size eight (I am a 10E cup, so there is room in the bust if you need it). I felt absolutely amazing on the day/night, and could dance the night away with ease.

I did not have this dressed hemmed at all. I liked the raw edge, and with the front split I honestly didn't see the need, particularly as alterations were finished the week of my wedding. This has meant that some of the beads around the hem have fallen off from being walked on throughout the night. You—whomever you are—are more sensible than me, and will surely have the gown hemmed, plus there are spare beads and sequins in the gown bag, so your alterationist will have plenty of beads and sequins to play with, should you still need to repair some once the dress is hemmed (if you are 5' 4"-5' 5"-ish and have the dress hemmed, I doubt you will need to fix any to be honest, as the fallen beads are towards the bottom of the hem, which is likely to come off when it's being hemmed). Please note, that these bead-related concerns have been reflected in the price already. Please do get in touch if you'd like me to video the hem, and/or send some pics of the hem for your consideration.

Otherwise this gorgeous gown is in excellent condition. It has been professionally dry-cleaned, and came up perfect.

Comes in original Mariana Hardwick gown bag, with original coat-hanger, with spare beads/sequins.

I'd be happy to send/ship this item anywhere at buyer's expense. I'll happily have the shipping costed and be transparent about the cost before sending.

I'd be very happy to see only serious buyers in my home for a try on, under socially distanced, COVID safe conditions.

The gown was purchased in a label size 8, though by the time of the wedding I was a street size 6, so the gown had to be substantially altered. The waist and hips were taken in a full size, the shoulders were taken up, hooks and loops were added to hoist the bustle (though one fell off during the night and will need to be reattached), the sheer veil across the chest was trimmed to be shorter, and extra large cups were added (though are attached by single stitches and can be very easily removed).
