Anne Barge’s collection of 23 gowns was pure enjoyment and a breath of fresh air on a modern traditional silhouette. Each gown was truly unique with a little carryover to the next. Always a true couture artist, Anne’s fabrics once again brought fabulous silk lace, white crinkle chiffon, charmers, tulle, and organza with detailed accents to her collection.
The Paquita silhouette of sumptuous white silk organza over peony organza was ever so faint. It became an air of mystery along with the sheer overlays of the bodice and skirt bringing about a romantic, classic look to modern times. The Swanson design was breathtaking for the sophisticated bride looking for a plunging neckline.
Known for her signature style of ball gowns, her use of silk fabrics allow for a flow to the gowns as they passed by, seemingly effortless. The necklines of illusion bateau and twisted halter-top brought in a daring contemporary look echoed by the fashion elite’s smiles lighting up the room. The embroidery this year was delightful and the Dietrich fitted crepe back satin gown design with its open back and dimensional embroidery on the hips was perfect. It was pure Anne Barge and lovely.
