Reimagined Corset Wedding Dresses

This season designers reimagine the boldly feminine, sculptural corset through a modern and avant-garde lens. 

There are beautiful wedding gowns, and those that shock with beauty. Bridal looks akin to art that dramatically sculpt a silhouette, twisting and draping like a second skin over the female form. 

Reimagining a style steeped in history, this season we’re captivated by bridal’s artful update to the traditional corset. Borrowing from the bold femininity and haute craftsmanship of corsetry, designers are experimenting with avant-garde styles and unexpectedly modern interpretations. Structured boning is softened with swathes of delicate fabric, ruched detailing or intricate embroidery. Voluminous silhouettes are offset with sheer corsetry panels and cut out details. Traditional shapes are made modern with asymmetry and sharp lines, or poetic with undulating, sculptural folds. 

Whether voluminous or contoured, the modern corset offers infinite possibilities for creative expressionism, and the chance to wear a masterpiece on your wedding day.
