Eiko Ishioka

Wedding gown designed by Eiko Ishioka for Bram Stoker’s Dracula
'It's a somewhat strange concept, but I loved the look of the Australian collared lizard and felt that it was a fitting image for a woman who had become a vampire. I had never once thought of designing a traditional wedding dress anyway, and when the lizard idea came to me I fashioned a cape, made completely of embroidered lace, based on this idea. Lucy's dress, loaded with embroidery, was created from a stiff net base upon which the dressmakers embroidered my design - all by hand, of course.'
