Custom-made dress which was part of the wedding costume worn by actor Georgie Stone as Mackenzie Hargreaves in the Australian television series Neighbours in 2022.
Worn during her onscreen wedding to Hendrix Greyson (Ben Turland), which is significant as the first representation of a transgender character marrying on an Australian drama program.
The dress was custom designed and made for Ms Stone in the Neighbours costume department, although in the show's storyline it was made by Mackenzie's friend Amy (Jacinta Stapleton.) Georgie works with the show's designer Nicholas Wakerley to come up with the final design, the butterfly motif was important both to Georgie and Mackenzie. The wedding was filmed in the Japanese Garden at Melbourne Zoo, with post wedding photographs inside the Butterfly House.

Zipper fastening at side, transparent mesh fabric at back. Frilled edging where skirt is attached to bodice. Floor length skirt is white silk organza sewn in folds on the diagonal from the proper left hip to form voluminious ruffles. High split at proper front left.
