Lavender Bridesmaid Dress

This Lavender bridesmaid dress has more of a personal history as I wore it to an aunt's wedding over a decade ago. The dress itself though reminds me of my nan who also attended the ceremony. My nan always wore a lavender scent whenever I went to visit her and so it is from looking at the colours, shapes and patterns in the dress that I am always reminded of the memories of my nan who has now unfortunately passed away. This object is a very important and symbolic reference to her in my life and always will be.
