When it was time to start preparing for the Logies I knew exactly who I wanted to work with to create my dress. Over the past year my love affair with the brand Lover has only increased. Lover is an amazing Australian label who nail every single collection. I love their feminine aesthetic, the fit and make of every garment is beautiful and each time I put on a Lover dress I feel special.
I was so excited when Lover agreed to custom make me a floor length dress for Televisions night of nights, The Logies. They don't usually create custom pieces, so I felt truly blessed to have something made that was only for me.
Of course with custom making an outfit comes lots of fittings and adjustments. I had about 3 fittings to make sure everything was just right for the big night. It took us until the last fitting to decide on a colour. The first version was in black just to make sure the fit and design was right, it was perfect so then we had to choose the colour, THE HARDEST PART!!
Originally my little sister Aleysha, who is also my stylist, had a beautiful pinky coral chosen, then I got stuck on the idea of an amazing baby blue which is seen in previous Lover collections. THEN we were sent an option of a wine coloured version of the dress and everyone fell in love with the elegance and warmth of it. Coming in to winter it was the perfect colour!
I cannot thank Lover and my stylist Aleysha enough for making the entire process so enjoyable. Every fitting was fun and full of laughter.
I know most of you will be wanting to add a Lover piece to your wardrobe, trust me I have a few cocktail dresses in mine and its the best wardrobe investment to make. Lover is stocked in David Jones and online at Loverthelabel.com
