Beautiful inside and out is the only way to describe Jordan Papalia, partner of Gold Coast Sun’s Gary Ablett Jnr. I worked with Jordan last year for her first Brownlow Medal, where I’d dressed her in a stunning Maticevski gown. A hard act to follow, this year, we decided to create a custom gown .

I  turned to emerging designer and definitely one to watch, Anthony Montesano of Signor Mont Couture. We discussed various designs, but Jordan and I wanted to stay true to Anthony’s design aesthetic – the man knows how to work with lace! The gown evolved several times before we landed on a leather bustier with lace appliqued throughout and a tulle bottom. Given lace is so feminine and true to Jordan’s elegant sense of style, we decided to make it quite edgy by adding a metalic zip at the waist and neckline. To complete the look I decided on gunmetal accessories, including a custom pearl and diamond ear cuff, created by Steve at GND Jewellery.
