The Spring 2012 Christos collection is a mixture of lightweight fabrics and unexpected details. Designer Amsale Abrerra always presents a collection of romantic and elegant wedding gowns that are always at the top of my “best of the season” list.
There are 12 dresses in the collection, here are five that stood out:
1 – If you’re looking for a light and airy wedding gown but want something more than a clean tulle bodice and skirt, the “Nevine” dress is adorned with organza embroidery, which adds a layer of texture.
The tailored look of the Spring 2012 Amsale collection was a mix of stiff fabrics (taffeta, silk mikado and silk faille), pleating and an origami-style bow detail.
Whether discussing fabric manipulation, mixing of materials or elegant embellishments, brides looking for a classic and sophisticated look will love the new Amsale collection. You just have to wait till it hits salons in the fall.
1 – I like simple and the simplicity of this diagonal bow on the “Harper” dress was quite chic. Also, did you notice how one side of the strapless neckline is a natural curve while the other is higher? A number of designers created an off-balanced neckline which adds another subtle detail.
Brides looking for a touch of glamour on their wedding day must make an appointment at a Kenneth Pool trunk show. The Spring 2012 collection is a mixture of dramatic silhouettes and necklines accented with metallic beading.
While some designers can go over board with beading, Amsale Abrerra does not. Her careful placement of adornments add just the right amount of bling to the classic white (or ivory) wedding gown.
Here are my five favorite dresses from the collection:
1 – Tiered skirts have been popular for the last few seasons but the delicate silver embroidery and beading on the bodice and at the hem of each tier add a hint of glamour to the “Zuzanna” tulle ball gown.
Brides looking for that red carpet look will fall in love with the Fall 2011 Badgley Mischka Bride collection. Mark and James’ glamorous gowns for both the Badgley Mischka Bride and Mark & James – their bridge line – all feature a figure flattering sexy silhouette with handcrafted details including beading, three-dimensional flower appliques and fabric manipulation.
If you’re going for that glamorous Hollywood style make sure to try on these stunning gowns:
There’s something about an ornate skirt with a clean bodice or an ornate bodice paired with a clean skirt that I’m attracted to. I think it’s that less is more thing I’ve mentioned a few times this week. The “Maggie” dress shown here features the latter of the two. The bodice is adorned with gold beading and embroidery while the trumpet-silhouette skirt is a beautifully draped ivory satin skirt.
St. Pucchi celebrated their 25th anniversary this season and created an avant-garde collection with a focus on modern silhouettes and textures. Designer Rani Totman shared that when designing the line she focused on fabrication and was inspired by “the futuristic appeal of geometrics, combined with femininity and romance.”
I found that the designs were quite-regal inspired. What do you think?
A simple sheath was featured with this tulle “coat” that was embroidered with silver thread and beading. Perfect for the bride who wants some coverage for her arms for her wedding ceremony or in general.
