The weekend is looking extra bright with today’s Fashion Friday collection straight from the streets of Rome. Julie Vino‘s Spring 2017 collection looked radiant under the warm Italian sun with frothy tulle skirts, luxurious lace accents, and sultry silhouettes. It’s a fine display of romance that captures our wildest bridal dreams!
Do you know that feeling when you see something for the first time and suddenly your heart skips a beat, because you know you’ve found something truly special? Well that’s exactly what happened when I laid eyes on Cocoon Bridal’s special line of Chinese wedding dresses or “Qun Guas“, and I can’t wait to share them with you today!
Taking inspiration from the late Ching dynasty fashion, Cocoon Bridal‘s lead designer, Sarah Lau, re-envisioned the traditional wedding garb for today’s modern bride. She incorporated fresh colors and played with cuts and silhouettes to flatter different body types. From the intricate embroidery to the handmade knot buttons, the amount of detail in each dress clearly required incredible technique and skill. You can easily stare at them for hours! It’s no surprise that it takes 6 to 9 months to finish one dress, just like top label couture dresses.
1. VIBRANT LOTUS
This first ensemble is vibrant and full of life with bold splashes of pinks, greens, and blues — perfect for the young bride who’s not afraid of some color. I love the embroidered panelled skirt detail that resembles a Chinese fan.
To get over this week’s hump day and inch ourselves that much closer to the weekend, we have set our sights on another enchanting photo set by MC Photography. Behold the charming nuptials of Jonnie and Bryan! The bride’s va-va-voom bedazzled Casadei stilettos are absolutely sublime, and so are the cutesy photobooth props. Take a look at this sure-fire way to chase away those Wednesday woes!
We’re starting the week right with a fresh and organic e-sesh that’s beautifully rustic and creative. With a simple foliage wall, pretty blooms by A Piece of Cake, and small gold details, Emily & Fabio prove to us that styling is key to pulling off a minimal yet memorable portrait session. Come and see all the pretty through Donna Lam‘s lens, and walk away with a smile!
Eleanor Roosevelt once said “the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” And with that in mind, I present to you Lior Charchy Bridal’s Craft Label 2016 collection. Welcome to the land of amazing metallic and bejewelled headgear and nose rings. It may be difficult to pair such a fierce accessory with the classic white dress, but Lior Charchy shows us how it’s done. The craftsmanship shown in the manipulation of such delicate fabrics like Chantilly lace, French tulle, organza, satin and chiffon is beyond superb! Embrace the future with the fusion of edgy and romantic, it’s time has come!
