Game of Thrones Season 3 - Embroidered details on Sansa Stark’s wedding dress. 

For Sansa’s wedding dress the designer Michele Clapton wanted to have an embroidered band that wrapped around which symbolistically told Sansa’s life from the Tully and Stark beginnings to the entanglement with the Lannisters.

Her story starts at her lower back where the Tully fish and Stark direwolf entwine; as we move round to the front the Lannister lion is becoming dominant over the direwolf and at the back neck the lions head is stamped onto Sansa. The dress colour was still very much Sansa Stark and the embroidery had pale golden tones but woven through the story are ripe red pomegranates, the red colour symbolising the growing Lannister influence over her.

You knew I’d stop to read this this is so fantastic
