wedding forecast by JM :: bridal fashion week 2011


"Spring 2011 Bridal Fashion Week"
Bridal Fashion Week commenced just last week -- one of my absolute favorite semi-annual events. All the major bridal houses presented their upcoming collections and they were not to disappoint. The jaw dropping designs all shared inspiration from a garden or tea party. It truly is amazing to see how these couturiers re-invent themselves time and time again.

Reem Acra’s garden gowns, many with lingerie-style corsets and bustiers, were bursting with floral touches, from “3D” floral embroideries that looked almost as good as wearing a dress embellished with real flowers, to tulle that looked like stems of a bouquet, every detail spoke to Acra’s celebration of couture finishing.*



Vera Wang’s collection was the latest exhibition of her artistry. Armed with a thorough knowledge of couture techniques from the past, Wang propels the form forward as she develops new techniques. But most stunning were the architectural gowns employing what Wang’s program notes termed a “ladder technique”: a fabric fractal made up of cascading layers of gravity-defying silk gazar that were like a mad mathematical epiphany transformed into art.*

{My personal favorite line of the show}




Go ahead, swoon over my personal picks. They are so beautiful that it makes me sigh.
