We named this dress after the star of Filipina on the Rise, Krystl. Krystl was the very first person to try this dress and it is an honor to be able to name this dress after her. The Silviyana Krystl dress is a tea-length wedding gown. Designed exclusively by an American independent designer for Silviyana. This tea-length gown has a classic vintage look, but with small modern takes, like the low v-neckline. The belt is removable, made with vintage beading materials. The sleeves is a modern take on the traditional Philippine Terno sleeves. Using the different textures of the abaca and abaca silk fabrics, they are carefully placed to mimic the geometric shapes of the Ifugao rice terraces.
Here is another bonus: this dress has pockets! Two pockets – to be exact, the perfect gown for practical brides!

Comments on fit
First and foremost, we ought to tell you that this eco-friendly and ethically-made wedding gown has pockets (oh yeah, #practicalbride). This dress is lined in organic cotton and has a built-in petticoat. The belt is sewn on, but we can easily customize a belt that you have or design one for you. The neckline is lower, but not ultimately plunging. Depending on your height, the length of the dress will fall just above your ankle or an inch below your knees. This eco-class wedding gown sits on the natural waist.
