Made of “a unique natural stretch 4-ply black silk crepe fabric," the dress was breathtaking from top — an off-the shoulder, sweetheart neckline — to bottom, where the skirt featured "silk georgette godets.”

After it was framed with a hematite crystal, each bead on the show-stopping dress was cut down one-by-one, entirely by hand, until it flowed “seamlessly” with the garment’s curves.
