The gown at right was designed in 2000 for the Millenium. Silk charmeuse was chosen for the undergown, while gold metallic silk organza was the choice for the overcoat. The coat is embellished with 3 dozen cymbinium orchids.
Made of duchess satin, the bodice and unusual bow make this gown special.
The simplcity of this gown is highlighted by a silk organza embroidered veil.
