It’s that time of the year again, when designers put on their thinking hats to come up with a collection that will represent them for the Bridal Spring 2015 Fashion Show. Although I’m far from walking down the aisle, looking at gorgeous wedding gowns make my heart flutter as if I’ve finally met that someone I will exchange vows with. Okay, before I end up enumerating the reasons why I set aside the matters of the heart for now, here’s a few of the designers that made me realize how beautiful it is to wear a gown on every girl’s most special day.
Simplicity is beauty. This is the first thing that came into my mind as I scanned each dress from Scarlett’s classic vintage collection. While the 30s hairstyle is too common for a wedding look, I liked how their makeup was done. It completed the soft fabrics used for each piece, with a few having beads that even modern women would love to wear. My favorite: You guessed it right! That sophisticated beaded gown with sleeves that make it look more prim and proper.
It was pure freshness over at Christos after the models stunned in simple yet romantic pieces. Lace and floral embellishments were a thing on the show, while blush gowns made it clear that white dresses aren’t the only ones to be used on wedding days. The messy hairstyle was gorgeous, but I’d rather go for the short hairdo topped with a sparkling headband. My favorite: The tube gown in blush with a not-so-puffy tulle skirt.
I fell in love the moment I laid my eyes on Marchesa’s exquisite collection. Not only there were a lot of lace issues, but there was that feeling of old school glamour as each girl paraded in front of a wall with MARCHESA on it. I don’t know about you, but it felt like watching Audrey Hepburn movies all over again. Case in point: that off-the-shoulder white dress. However, the makeup was a bit boring for such a wonderful occasion. If I were to be asked, I would’ve gone with lighter shades of lipstick to complete that princess-like look. My favorite: The ankle-length dress covered with lace on the neckline.
Reem Acra’s collection oozed with sexiness and elegance at the same time. Shiny silhouettes, lace, and body-fitting pieces were showed on the runway. Models looked like they were ready for the honeymoon as they glided on the runway with red lipstick and loose waves. I also like how Acra incorporated pretty embellishments such as pearls and crystals into some gowns. Though I hoped for more exciting shades, the white wedding gown is still as gorgeous as ever. My favorite: The tube gown with lace top and silk bottom that lengthens the legs without any effort.
