It’s All in the Details
Delicate origami draping, intricate Chantilly lace appliqués and asymmetrical organza petal embellishments are whimsical details that infuse a chic, modern style into every bridal look. The perfect embodiment of a traditional dress with contemporary elements, style VW351105 is an elegant satin-faced organza and horsehair gown with an origami-draped bodice featured on this month’s cover of BRIDES magazine.
“This season, I’ve taken inspiration from the delicate form of flowers and their feminine appeal to create the White by Vera Wang Spring 2012 collection,” said Vera Wang. The trend is translated in a variety of ways, such as organza petals and blossoms, petal embroidery and floral corsages. For the bride who wants to make a bold statement, floral prints are an ideal option and also a major trend for the spring season.
Long skirts are no longer the only option for gowns this season. As more brides seek a stylish yet nontraditional look on their special day, shorter hemlines are a reemerging trend for spring. A charming alternative is style VW351113, a satin-faced organza short dress featuring lace appliqués, tulle overlay and a sweetheart neckline.
