Circus Couture is a truly magnificent project. It’s a once a year show featuring variety acts, a fashion show, and a really exciting live auction. The production value of the show rivals anything on the Las Vegas Strip, and all of the proceeds go to an amazing charity. This is some of the best live entertainment you will find in the world, and to top it all off, all of the proceeds go to pediatric care and research.
Tawney was invited to be the featured designer for the fashion show this year, which was really exciting! The concept was to make a balloon dress that represented each of the themes from the previous themes. This meant there would be five unique balloon dresses. We knew we wanted to make these all really spectacular, so we put together a power team of Tawney, Shana Brenion, and Buster Balloon. The three of them created these five, beautiful works of art.

I would just like to thank everyone who helped, modeled, organized, and fed us while we were working on these Circus Couture balloon dresses!
Creating this wedding balloon dress was such an enjoyable project for me. Chuck Lane and Julie Trygar, the amazing bride and groom who threw this Riviera Maya wedding, were fantastic to work with! It was such a treat to collaborate with Julie in designing her dream wedding balloon dress. Julie knew she wanted a truly unique wedding dress, and it was so much fun making it happen for her.
