Millinda came to hear from us via Carina – they are sisters-in-law. Carina has also made multiple donations. Millinda passed on her wedding gown, along with a christening gown, to Carina and she passed it on to us. Traditionally if I describe a wedding gown as a two-piece I define it as a top and […]

In October of 2017 I saw Frieda for the first time at a group meeting and I found her composure elegant, yet striking. We didn’t initially interact much but at another meeting just before the festive season of 2017 started we had more interaction with each other and she told me of these beautiful christening […]

The white and black gown is Ann’s wedding gown, and it is quite a unique fabric and style. Don’t be fooled by the “short and small looking” skirt of this dress. Once taken apart that skirt holds a lot of fabric. The black lacy ensemble is a two piece evening gown outfit. The two christening […]
