HISTORY IN THE MAKING where did the dress go ... Sarah Allpress, designer at Accentuate Bikinis (pictured) provides the perfect example of using an exquisite piece of our vintage collection and making it your own. Creating a modern unique look to suit your lifestyle and events. Her delicate frame required softening of the piece by altering the length for a more flattering hemline. Finishing touches were made with a the creation of the perfectly buckled belt to accentuate her waist. Pairing with her  existing accessories and a spectacular gelatin floral headpiece creation by designer Claire Hahn, Sarah crafted a perfect picture for her entry to the Hawkes Bay Racing, Caroline Meo Bayleys, Fashion in the Field competition (October 2021).
