“I have boxes and boxes of vintage trims, laces and beads, just everything you’d want to put into your dress is right here in this space,” Scheidet said.
When Brad Pitt proposed, the pencils went down, Tara Lynn had just 24 hours to send in her sketch. It was a web site The Green Bride Guide that approached the green designer.
“I don’t know if she has seen them, I don’t know if the bride to be has seen them,” said Scheidet.
But the sketches Tara Lynn has come up with include fabrics like a hemp and silk blend, cotton netting and, “Maybe some silk charmeuses,” Scheidet said. And then of course a little extra detail, because it’s Angelina Jolie.
“It has like a cascade of jade glass beads like droplets going down from the top of the skirt all the way to the floor,” The “green” designer said.
Tara Lynn started by researching who Jolie is, what she wears and about her adopted children from all over the world. “I was inspired by Cambodian fashion,” Scheidet said.
So, Brangelina’s kids could serve as inspiration for the dress. “There was a poem embroidered in her train,” Scheidet said.
Tara Lynn makes about 24 dresses a year, and it’s a long shot, but if she does design for America’s version of the royal wedding, this dress might just stand out and make her a household name like Wang and Westwood.
