I bet you didn’t guess horse rugs, mosquito netting, and old shearing combs. It sounds insane but apparently an Australia-based fashion designer Kirsty Mackenzie has created a wedding dress made entirely of materials found on a farm, taking the term “rustic chic” to a whole new level.
A rundown of what she used for the dress:
- Heavy canvas (for the skirt)
- Mosquito netting (for the sheer overlay)
- Rope (stitching on the bodice)
- Rip stop from horse rugs (for ruching on the bodice)
- A speaker cover spray-painted gold (the base of the veil fascinator)
- Bullet shells (to accent the fascinator)
- Shearing combs, bolts, blades and wire (for the bouquet)
The plan is to show her aptly named “Shot Gun Wedding Dress” in a Wearable Art contest held in Western Australia later this summer. I’ll stay away from that bouquet toss thank you very much.
More good stuff!
