The Greek goddess DIANA the huntress has inspired this sensual classic by Shangri-La, which features a hand beadwork sholder strap and many beading details. Shangri-La has created the ultimate expression of "GODDESS for a day"!
Italian trained Chinese designer You Min uses silk devore fabric, a rayon pile velvet burnt away with acid printing to leave shadows of silk chiffon, for SHANGRI-LA's Diana wedding dress. Devore means "to devour" in French. The process uses a chemical that dissolves cellulose plant fibers (such as cotton, linen, raime, rayon, and viscose) without harming non-plant silk fibers. This technique, first invented in France at least a century ago and very fashionable in the "roaring twenties" now makes a striking and avante garde comeback!
Our wedding dresses are so comfortable that you will want to wear it for the rest of your life! You may enjoy the modern avante garde flair of the semi-transparent charmeuse fabric or we will gladly provide a lining in a complimentary fabric. The details are always up to you!
