Ultra embellished lace that calls for a closer look, ladylike sleeves extending beyond slender wrists, feminine silhouettes both daring and demure….Spring Couture captivated with a flurry of shorter gowns unmistakably designed with non-traditionalist brides in mind.
Perfect as a second dress, or as an incredible, unexpected option for the entire celebration, these seductive cuts blend timelessness with modern sensibilities. Flashes of leg partner with high collars while sheer lace is re-imagined in nostalgic silhouettes. Heirloom like, were it not for their contemporary daring, these designs effortlessly merge conflicting sensibilities to spectacular effect.
Paired with a suede pointed heel or delicately laced stiletto, these decadent gowns require little in the way of accessories. For shorter sleeved options in winter climes, be sure to add a bolero or capelet covering bare shoulders, (feathered for faux fur) for a decadent continued layering of textures.
