From what I can gather the designer is Gareth Pugh… but I can’t find much more than that. His website domain has expired.

@AmpersandStyle:  It was a series of searches. First, I google searched the image and it was tagged as “Purple wedding dress”

I browsed the websites & images until I found the same dress only it had a front and back picture. It also had it listed as a “bubble skirt.” So I added “bubble skirt” to my “Purple wedding dress” image description. The first website result was “Gareth Pugh Spring Summer 2013 Haute Couture | Wedding dress” and that took me to a generic website about wedding dresses with the same image and some text in what I’m assuming is Korean.

So, I googled Gareth Pugh. Some of his designs are remarkably similar (He tends to design very “offbeat” dresses… some are very out there.) but his website demain has expired, so my search ended there. He doesn’t seem to be very “open” in the world so to speak and tends to keep his designs & shows rather low-key. I think he’s from paris.

@AmpersandStyle:  I know, I was just showing you that if you reverse Google Image search it, you might be able to ascertain its origins……..
