Alexandra by Truvelle / sz 24
Alexandra features a plunging neckline, open sides, and a striking back. The layered pick-up skirt is constructed with hand-draped chiffon, which catches movement and the wind perfectly.

This gown is tied together beautifully with a silk bow that is both elegant and dramatic.

Gaby and her team have consistently embodied their girl-powered dream of gowns with mindful design. With the goal of zero waste during production, their gowns are not only beautiful, they are thoughtfully made. This Vancouver based company focuses on attention to quality, the “little things” and overall coolness for the effortlessly confident bride.
