Whimsical, ethereal and completely decadent…fringed detailing of every aesthetic persuasion drifted down the recent runways of some of our favourite names in Haute Couture.
Elie Saab’s signature, breathtaking embellishment manifested in jaunty layers of glamorous beading, dresses taking on a life of their own, in movement down the runway. Perfect for non-traditional brides receptive to a soft tint of colour, or looking to channel bygone opulence. Valentino meanwhile extended upon a mood of ancient, ethereal glamour - think translucent offerings, all delicately knotted and trailing superfine tendrils of silk. Ephemeral gowns just as suited to a barefoot oceanic ceremony as they are to an intimate candlelit gathering.
Keep things fresh and modern, avoiding any excessively glamorous styling (so as not to stray into ‘costume’ territory). Pair gowns with effortlessly natural hair and dewy makeup, just a lightly kholed eye for ceremonies after dark and a perfectly neutral shoe.
