Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Character: Fleur Delacour
Variant: Wedding gown
Debut: July 2011
Fleur’s wedding gown is obviously inspired by a dress from the Alexander McQueen collection autumn/winter 2008/2009. The floor-length gown is made of off-white satin and off-white tulle. The upper part of the gown has an overlay of tulle. The layered, fluffy design of the skirt is achieved with the help of a huge amount of square pieces of tulle which are sewn directly onto the skirt.
The gown is decorated with two huge ‘phoenix’ appliques which are composed of several black appliqués (head and body of the phoenix) and lace (tail of the phoenix). The gown has a small train and closes in the back with an invisible zipper. A crinoline and a tulle petticoat are worn underneath.
The headdress is made of a brass headband, wire and two black appliqués.
