What is the magic inside this fine silk handmade wedding dress? They tell the story among the Morenos, the Priettos, the O’Haras, the Salinases and the newlywed Kassoufs – all branches on the same mostly Mexican family tree. For almost 100 years, the women in their family have passed the dress along, added beads, a little lace, gussets and trimmed the train. For decades, the dress sat wrinkled in a box, as if waiting for someone to bring it to life. It has been stolen. Twice.
