April Cornell Antique Elegance Gown
Part of our exclusive Hopeless Romantic collection.
About the Designer
Artist April Cornell's designs are inspired by her travels. Thirty-five years ago, she traveled the silk road, searching for beauty and adventure in every corner.
Believing in the importance of stopping to smell the roses, she used these experiences to create the palette for her line, which captures multicultural scents and sights with its color, compassion, and romance. Many of her prints are derived from original artwork painted by April herself, primarily the watercolors.

I bought this dress with spring and summer weddings in mind. Being off-white, it won't upstage the bride, but it will help keep you cool on a hot day. Either a delicate parasol or a wide-brimmed hat would look ideal with it. On a practical note, the lining is a good addition to prevent it from becoming see-through. If you're taller than average, it will not reach the ground, as it does on the model. My ankles are clearly visible.
