Our favorite trend specialists and local wedding gurus, The Wedding Guys, were in New York City last month taking in all the hot happenings at Bridal Week. Lucky for us, they’re sharing their findings with us here, on Aisle File.
Heidi Elnora was able to manipulate elegant fabrics into beautiful creations, with no need to cover them with a lot of pattern, beading, or embroidery. We love that Heidi says it the way it is and has a great perspective on life, work, and family, which clearly is evident in her designs.
From great Southern roots, Heidi’s Fall 2015 Collection is all about timeless design with feminine relevance.The rather simple silhouettes are enhanced by handkerchief layered ruffles, flower appliques, and detailed lace. The traditional elements trending today give great way to Heidi’s leafy and pedal embellished bodices with a sheer illusion neckline allowing a bride to cover up as much (or as little) as she wants. Heidi’s love for this industry and her energy is electrifying and it’s so much fun to be around her to see her light up with inspiration.
The Goddess Bride of the Romona Keveza Fall 2015 Collection represents classic Hollywood glamour with a modern take on detail. Draped in sensual fabrics such as silk charmeuse and satin back crepe, Romona’s bride is polished yet sexy in dramatic backlines and figure hugging silhouettes.
The liquid flow of the satin back crepe Goddess gown of the 1940’s elevates our preview to the glorious 1950’s Chantilly and stardust lace ball gown. With multiple transparent bell-shaped layers over a narrow underskirt, this one gown has more than 400 hours of detailed handwork. From the fashion icons of Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy, Romona’s collection continues to embody effortless sophistication.
Isabelle Armstrong is a relatively new designer on the couture bridal fashion scene. The gowns are designed with the philosophy that every wedding gown should evoke the feelings of splendor, passion, and grace and remain the constant inspiration for each collection. The Fall 2015 Collection includes extraordinary silhouettes with a unique vision. We find it interesting to see so many different silhouettes with very little repeat in elements from one gown to another. The pleated ruffled back train has a fresh new appeal, with the flow and overall serene quality taking your breath away.
Isabelle Armstrong gowns inspire brides to feel beautiful and spectacular. The leather gown is truly a work of art, with each circular piece meticulously sewn onto the gown. The Charlene draped gown of silk charmeuse with detachable train as one of our favorites and reminding us of their philosophy of splendor, passion, and grace.
