With a strapless sweetheart neckline, adorned with squared-off cups and a V-cut opening, Lucy's gown exuded structural elegance, cascading into a magnificent full ball gown with a regal train. Antoinette's meticulous attention to detail and signature style ensured that Lucy's personality radiated through every stitch.


"When wearing my dress I felt like myself - Although my dress was extravagant and so very dramatic it was like an extension of me in a way I never knew imagined. I felt confident and very beautiful”

The process began with a consultation, where Lucy poured her aspirations and inspirations into the hands of Antoinette. Together, they embarked on a journey of creativity and collaboration. Antoinette, with her keen eye for design, sketched Lucy's vision right before her eyes—a gown that would epitomize elegance and sophistication.


Over the course of months, Lucy's dream began to take shape. Each fitting was a celebration of progress, a moment where anticipation mingled with excitement. From the initial muslin mock-up to the final embellishments, every detail was meticulously crafted to perfection.


As the days passed, Lucy found herself not only falling in love with her dress but also with the journey itself. The bond between bride and designer grew stronger with each interaction, each fitting a testament to the trust and camaraderie shared.

“My favourite moment of the day was walking down the aisle and seeing my husband. The morning had been very stressful due to the heavy rain (first time in 65 years in SA) and so to see him it made me feel so at ease. I also loved this moment because he could finally see my gown and his face and emotions were so beautiful to witness”

Against the backdrop of nature's canvas, Lucy's gown commanded attention—a symbol of love and artistry intertwined. The rain, far from dampening spirits, only added to the enchantment of the day, casting a magical glow over the festivities.


In Lucy's couture journey, Antoinette Fusillo not only created a dress but also a cherished memory—a testament to the transformative power of craftsmanship and the enduring bond between designer and bride. As Lucy walked down the aisle, she knew that her dress was more than just fabric and thread; it was a reflection of her dreams, brought to life by the hands of a true artist.
