The History of the Design
This complete creation and mood is most personal to us, the entire look encompasses our wedding, ‘and she wore black’. It’s a combination of what we both wore, recreated and re designed with a more exaggerated & theatrical feel. The leather Tailcoat, sculptured from a heavy hide more commonly used in corsetry, stands erect and proud, restrictive and intimidating enticing the prospective wearer to dare to try it on, finished with the horsetail sprouting pertly through the glory hole.
‘Well we think all tailcoats should have a tail, it makes sense, doesn’t it!’
‘with the Bride we wanted to create a sculpture, a monument to an event, a memorial, something not throw away, something built to last’
Creating this coat in such heavy restrictive leather was inspired by Paul Seville’s original creation for Antonio Beradi at Exte back in early 2000.
