Ines Di Santo: Rocking the 2010 Runway

I’ve always been a huge fan of Ines di Santo—I love the lines and how the designs are bridal, without being overdone.  It is sexy bridal fashion made for real women that not only enhances woman’s curves, but also her inner confidence.  Here are some of my favorites from the 2010 Runway show:

 

 

Love the opulent detail and cut of the bodice. 

 
 

This is definitely one of my favorites:  the colors, shirred fabrics and hem are divine!

 
 

I love how this design kicks it up a notch—adding the slimming shirred design with feathers and crystals.

 
 

This simpler empire cut with the ornamented pleats adds sophistication and understated elegance

 
 

Love the drop waist and full skirt on this gown!  The sheen of the fabric complements the extraordinary beading and cut of the bodice.

 
 

Once again, the designers take a simple design  (here, a mermaid gown) and make it exquisite with the addition of ivory lace  and pleats at the top of the bodice and bottom of the hem.

From the Runway to Your Wedding: Elie Saab

Elie Saab Spring Show 2009

 

Have you seen the new 2009 Elie Saab Spring Show?  I fell in love with Elie Saab when Halle Berry wore a couture design when she won her Oscar.  I was looking at the shots from the Spring 2009 show, and while the gowns are not for a wedding dress line,they could definitely pass for bridal chic.  The details were divine—with a little Japanese influenced obis to 3D appliques.  Here is a closer look of the images above:

I also loved these for mother of the bride/groom or bridesmaids dresses:

Definition: Bengaline

Apple Green Bengaline from BBJ Linen

ben·ga·line  (bngg-ln) n.   A fabric having a crosswise ribbed effect made of silk, wool, or synthetic fibers.


[French, from Bengale, Bengal.]
Putting a modern edge to decor is always fun. Bengalines help you incorporate the soft feel of a fabric, with your choice of sheen or matte, without splurging on other costlier linens like lamours.  It’s ribbed texture is a nice difference from a lamour, but is not a knit fabric, but a woven one.  Bengaline is used in everything from wedding gowns to linens to tent lining.
