NYC Bridal Market 2012: Ines Di Santo Fall 2013 Collection (Runway)

Alluring translucent bodices and illuminated champagne metallic chiffon dance(d) before tiered voluminous skirts and laser cut layers of organza.” Sounds like a dream to us, and the photos below are evidence. Enjoy these exclusive images!
