Behind the Scenes: Spring 2018 Bridal

05.8.17

The Spring 2018 bride enters the room with a regal sense of grace to offer a tulle-gloved hand.

Chandelier boleros anoint shoulders with a sense of ceremony, while trellises of embroidery and beading creep up skirts and hug sculpted bodices close to the waist. Webs of pearls stretch around the form, setting a dew on the lightest of blushing tulles in latte and cappuccino. Elsewhere the tilt of a feathered skirt exaggerates the slightest movement.

The pure simplicity of sleek stretch-satin gowns fitted to the body give way to exuberant explosions of tulle, extreme trains and dramatic volume. The curved folds of lace textured wings flutter around the skirt of a sweetheart neckline, their volume in contrast to sensual scallop-edged Chantilly lace gowns. A bold stroke hand-paints one hem white on white, in others structure breaks into a cascade of tulle and lace. Hand-cut roses in cloud-hued silk organza open to reveal a gown made of pure romance.

Robes as thin as air sweep over strapless lace gowns, holding hands warmed by rose gold and platinum set alight by diamond, before falling at the feet of pearl and crystal-encrusted shoes in leather and lace.

This season the drama of the dresses are off-set by the perfect signature blush, gold and subtle nude beauty note; the debut of the essie gel couture bridal collection by Monique Lhuillier.
