Our exclusive Bridal Market coverage continues with our private viewing of couture designer Edgardo Bonilla’s latest designs. (If you missed photos from the our the Alvina Valenta and Matthew Christopher runway shows, click here.) In this collection, Bonilla’s inspiration was light – and this lightness was evident in each and every gown he created. We saw lots of geometric lines and bursts of sparkle to represent “light.” Take special note of the placement of these special features; it’s atypical and an art all its own. Edgardo has always been our King of Ball Gowns, and this collection absolutely lives up to his title. Enjoy these exclusive images from the runway show. Join us in store to meet Edgardo himself during our Edgardo Bonilla Trunk Show December 12-14, 2014. Directly below is a photo of the designer with Lovella’s Nayri and Angie. Stay tuned for even more from bridal fashion week!
Our exclusive Bridal Market coverage continues with Matthew Christopher’s runway show. (If you missed photos from the our Kenneth Pool private viewing or Alvina Valenta runway show, click here.) The designer’s 2015 “Inspiration” Collection didn’t disappoint. Each gown was mid-century inspired with a heavy dose of glamour. We saw architectural wonders with low-backs, shimmery fabrics and texture… lots of texture. One each model was a ‘60s look: carefully coiffed hair (more on that here), bold pink lips and cat-eye liner. Enjoy these exclusive images from the runway show. Stay tuned for even more from bridal fashion week!
Our exclusive Bridal Market coverage continues today with Alvina Valenta’s runway show. (If you missed photos from the our Maria Elena Headpieces or Kenneth Pool private viewings, click here.) This time around we were excited by the magical touch on the classic Alvina Valenta designs we’re accustomed to. For this collection, the models strutted down the runway in gowns with a major twist; back drama galore, with details of crystal strands draped on shoulders and backs. All romantic, all fluid, all still lovely; Jessica Williams did a remarkable job with this collection. Enjoy these exclusive images of the Spring 2015 Collection. Stay tuned for even more from bridal fashion week!
Our exclusive Bridal Market coverage continues today with Kenneth Pool’s runway show. (If you missed photos from the our Mira Zwillinger or Maria Elena Headpieces private viewings, click here.) The Kenneth Pool Fall 2015 Collection is a combination of ethereal glamour and art deco style. It has traditional and sexy elements throughout, and we love the unique use of sequenced patterned fabrics infused with traditional laces with tulle. The runway show was a real treat! Enjoy these exclusive images. Stay tuned for images from our private viewing of this same collection, where we’ll showcase more gowns from more angles.
Our exclusive Bridal Market coverage continues with Maria Elena Headpieces. Its lead designer and our good friend, Maria Elena, operates out of Miami. (If you missed our photos from the Lazaro runway show and Mira Zwillinger private viewing, click here.) Every year we wait in anticipation to see what Maria Elena will create. This year she infused mother of pearl, crystals, and semiprecious stones, the newest element, to the pieces. These hued stones are so special because they introduce new hues of color and texture we have never seen before into the collection. Also, one of the standout pieces, one that we absolutely loved, was the new clutch they created with purple semiprecious stones; so chic! Revel in the glamour of these heirloom works of art. And instead of dreaming of one day owning a piece so beautiful, stay tuned for information on our upcoming Maria Elena Headpieces trunk show, […]
