"Wai Ching Flatters"
When it comes to forecasting trends, discovering unparalleled talent plays an important part of research. I was immediately struck by the bride’s jaw dropping dress in this photo and had to research the masternmind behind the work of art. With a couple of clicks, I was directed to Chrissy Wai Ching.
Chrissy Wai Ching debuted her wild, yet wearable line, Wai-Ching, in 2003 with figure flattery at the top of her priority list. Creating fiercely unique clothing is a delicate process. To Wai Ching, the art lies not only in designing, but also in selecting luxurious silks, hand dyeing the blank canvas, and meticulously piecing together each masterpiece. The name Wai Ching (Cantonese for wisdom and virtue) reflects the philosophy of the line and of the artist herself.
Her dresses exemplify an exploration of layering, piecing, and contrasting. They are truly gowns for the unconventional bride, though she has a way of tying in traditional lines. What I love about these dresses is that they are so unique, and the designs easily bring out so much personality in a bride -- whether it be her fashion style, outgoing & creative personality, or her confidence. They're colorful pieces of art that are sure to make any bride radiate.
Pure customization is pure trend setting and although Seattle-based Chrissy Wai Ching may seem like a far and impossible plane ride away, she will work with clients remotely to design a one-of-a-kind wedding gown. The studio communicates closely with you to get your measurements and they guarantee a perfect fit. Prices start around a very reasonable $500! Talk about a collection that really embodies the “free spirit.”
