Sunette Thackwray

I first met Sunette at her sisters’ birthday party, also a name you’ve probably seen on other posts; Carin Yorke-Hart. It was Carin that told Sunette about TAGI and asked her if she would donate her wedding gown to us. From what I understand it was a no at first… but as in other cases, after some thought went into it, she said yes.

Sunette came to visit Carin for a bit while renovations were being done to her house. One afternoon late I had some clients to see in her area and popped by Carin for a visit. I got to see Sunette in person and collected the wedding gown from her myself.

Her wedding gown is made from Raw Silk in a colour somewhere between coffee and caramel. It is done in a pencil style with a scooped neckline, pleated cap sleeves and finished off with bead detail. Thank you Sunette for donating your special gown to The Angel Gown® Initiative.

On 27 October 2017 Mandy Taitz donated her wedding gown and I immediately knew I wanted to pair these two gowns together. Between the two wedding gowns we repurposed a total of 16 Angel Gown® garments, though only 6 are viewable here – 2 x Preemies, 2 x Tinys and 2 x Micros. The other 10 are viewable under Mandy‘s post.
