Bridal week is just like fashion week, except, surprise, it’s all about wedding gowns. The hottest gowns cascade down the runway, leaving onlookers, fashion enthusiasts, and future brides swooning over the latest styles. If you missed it this year, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got the inside scoop about designer’s inspiration for their Fall 2016 collections. So what did you miss?
We spoke with Yumi Katsura Couture’s Creative Director, Paulette Cleghorn. She told us this years collection has lots of texture with less beading. If there is beading, then it’s more of a tone on tone look.
If you’re a big fan of Victor Harper, you will be seeing a modern, sophisticated approach to the ballgown; tailored with a classic beading to create a bit of contrast.
For the Sareh Nouri line, Sareh pulled elements and inspiration from her Persian heritage. A history rich in art that is defined by detailed designs and patterns visualized in its mosaics, calligraphy, miniature paintings and intricate weaving. Sareh said, “The farics, laces and patterns that I selected and designed for this collection are reminiscent of an ancient, yet modern artistic culture.”
We also had the opportunity to speak with Cristiano Lucci, who said this years fall’s collection will be very fashion forward, so we’ll be seeing ball gowns, tulle, and delicate lace.
Overall, sexy sophistication seemed to be the theme of this season. We saw nude underlays, and plunging back lines, although, more toned down than last year. There was also a lot of lace—yay. And it seems ball gowns are making a comeback with a sophisticated, yet classic flair.
