Fashion Designer Steph Tan Talks About All the Intricate Details of Charlie Dizon’s Bridal Gown

A lot of brides enter an atelier with a specific mission and a specific vision while armed with a mood board of gown silhouettes or an album of “My dream dress” screenshots. On the other hand, there are also times when you just have no idea what you want and what looks good on you. And there are also moments when your initial plan might not turn out to be the final result… Sometimes, it could be even better than anything you could imagine. That’s the beauty of working with a designer whom you can trust, and who matches your personal style.

So, let’s take a closer look at how Fashion Designer Steph Tan created and transformed Actress Charlie Dizon’s gorgeous bridal gown from a simple vision into an ethereal masterpiece!

“With so many factors to take into account, it’s hard to know which bridal gown will make you feel your best,” says Steph. She emphasizes how important it is to do your research, and to try on various types of wedding dress silhouettes so you can figure out what you feel beautiful in. It’s also important to work with a designer who can give you wise recommendations that you’ll be grateful for!

Steph tells us, originally, Charlie wanted a minimalist brocade, A-line gown with spaghetti straps. “Since I found it too simple, I asked her try on some of our RTW wedding dresses in our atelier. She ended up falling in love with our signature ethereal lace and tulle gown,” shares Steph. She and Charlie then agreed on a dreamy tulle and lace gown that suited the actress!

Steph describes Charlie as a “laidback and practical bride” who simply wanted her gown to be comfortable and airy. The underarm cutouts of the gown serve the purpose of comfort by preventing Charlie’s arms from getting irritated while at the same time exuding a romantic and sultry look. “Ultimately, Charlie wanted a dress that would capture a sense of lightness and delicateness. Flexible with the creative process, she was open to my suggestions. I was given the creative freedom to design her dream gown so working with her was a breeze,” says Steph.

“Charlie’s ceremony gown features a semi-sheer bodice with hand-beaded lace and an open back. The thin crystal-embellished straps, elegant deep V-neckline, and underarm cut-out highlighted her arms and shoulders,” shares Steph. “Constructed from several layers of airy tulle, the semi-voluminous skirt has a blush undertone. The 3D flowers and lace appliqué, which were all carefully hand-sewn and hand- beaded, adorned the skirt and added drama to the cathedral train. To complete this modern and whimsical bridal look, we matched her bridal gown with a long veil with sequins.”
