Fashion Monday: Viva La Glam

Just as we predicted last year, as well as with the Royal Wedding Obsession, the emergence of glamour will take the wedding industry by storm!  These dresses are gorgeous– adding  a touch of glamour with sleek lines and luxurious fabrics.

Anne Barge:

Anne Barge wedding gowns feature modern interpretations of vintage couture.  This blending of contemporary and classic styles, with the use of the finest materials and intricate beading and embroidery, creates timeless silhouettes. Anne Barge has created three distinct brands- Black Label, Couture, and La Fleur- to fit her customers’ taste, regardless of budget.

Jennifer Salzman:

Jennifer Salzman’s use of Swarovski crystals, french lace, ruffled skirts and bubbled tiers makes her collection unlike any other. Salzman’s mastery of fit and proportion make her line elegant and feminine. From dramatic tulle princess gowns to the perfect beaded mermaid dress the common thread found throughout this diverse line is the attention to proportion and texture.

Dolly Couture (love this vintage, pin up-esque glamour of these tea length wedding dresses!)

Dolly Couture’s modern twist to the vintage, tea-length style dress has become a glamorous alternative to the classic bridal gown. Modest, yet still making a statement thanks to its voluminous silhouette; the full skirt is a perfect example of how to go big without going over the top. The brand is known for putting a fresh twist to the vintage tea-length style dress. Dolly Couture is Fashionable, affordable and unforgettable.

Ines Di Santo:

Using her signature hand-ruching and tailoring techniques, the Ines Di Santo Collection is known for marrying a sculpted, polished bodice with sumptuously layered skirts and romantic detailing.  The effect has garnered the brand an eager client base of discerning, and celebrity brides. Her well-recognized designs are carried at luxury retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.

Priscilla of Boston Turns It Up

Priscilla of Boston Wedding Gowns and Dresses

 

In doing some research, I stumbled into the Priscilla of Boston experience.  I say experience, because the site is not the run-of-the-mill bridal designer site.  It is fun, interactive and reflective of the upscale brand, while introducing you to some of the new modern, sexy, yet still elegant lines.  The site seeks to make your acquaintance with everything that Priscilla of Boston can offer:  wedding gowns, dresses for your bridal party…right down to a little black dress.  Additionally, you can view previous runway shows, meet the designers as well as get info on attending some of the trunk shows and other events.

I loved that each time you click on a dress to see it in greater detail, you are surprised to see not just a picture, but a video of a model walking in the dress down the runway.  Perfect!  This helps tremendously to see how a fabric moves, interacts with a body, as well as how the lines can complement or disgrace the model.

 

Here are some gorgeous features from each line:
