I’ve been to my share of fashion shows, I’ve sat in my chair, I have been wow’d, and I have applauded just like everyone else around me. Its not until this past bridal fashion week that I got my first uncontrollable set of fashion related chills, all at the hand of the one and only, Monique Lhuillier. You’re probably not too terribly surprised at this statement, Monique being a permanent favorite in the world of all things wedding gown gorgeous, however what I was personally delighted with was how the chills simply grew dress, after dress… after dress! I could not be more delighted to share each and every one of those wedding dresses, a collection I feel is going to inspire so many of you lovelies! While photos do tell so very many stories, video gives us a real peek into how these wonderful gowns move! Just after the gallery below are a few videos I shot that give a real feel to the light and airy way that is each design. Feeling as if your walking on air is one thing, feeling like your wearing a dreamy soft cloud is quite another!
The mix of hues, the silhouettes, the details, even gorgeous sleeve wedding dresses made their presence felt!! Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2015 Bridal Collection is inspired by her very own private jewelry box, one that contains a true treasure trove of special beauties. A signature to Monique’s designs in general is felt even more strongly in her fall 2015 bridal collection, the ability to be effortlessly romantic yet powerfully bewitching. Beading & embroidery were the true stars of each new design, while beautiful silhouettes in the likes of sheaths to softly flowing ball gowns danced in a mix of hues from gold, mint, lavender and primrose. Monique Lhuillier’s newest collection has the ‘IT’ factor, that intangible that is going to captivate each future bride to be, swelling her head with sleepy visions of romantic perfection, surprising themselves at their deep desire to don such refined beauty. I kid you not that as I exited the show, I immediately called my husband reporting that we are going to have to renew our vows very soon, simply so I would have reason to wear just one of these enchanting beauties.
*Anne O’Donnell from Alvin Ailey welcomed guests to Monique’s show as a real life jewel box ballerina, quite the treat I must say!
