Reem Acra “Divine Girl”

We are proud to feature the “Divine Girl” wedding gown by Reem Acra for our “Dress of the Week.”

We are loving this strapless dress we’ve selected from Reem Acra‘s Spring 2014 collection.

I especially love how the triangular lace design reveals and defines the torso while bestowing a slimming effect at the waist. And be sure to take a close look at that lace to truly appreciate the gorgeous design chosen by Reem Acra for this dress in particular.

Also, the way the fabric overlaps as it wraps around the bust adds still another level of elegance to this gown.

This is an exceptional dress for the bride who wants to feel like a princess, yet still flaunt an edgy-meets-classy air.

Look 11 - 5145 - Divine Girl (1)

“My inspiration this season was royalty of the past and present, naming each gown after a queen. In this collection, I combined soft and romantic fabrics with the dramatic detailing for which I have become known. It’s about a beautifully executed, elegant gown that evokes emotion in a bride. This is achieved in each gown and will definitely make every woman feel royal!” ~Angel Rivera, Designer

Dress of the Week: Look 8 by Oscar de la Renta

Good morning! My dear New Yorkers, I hope this Friday morning finds you well! And what better way to bring on the weekend than by gazing upon yet another masterpiece by Oscar de la Renta?
Before I present this I want to mention a happening that occurred to me a few weeks back. Upon accompanying a client to her buyer’s remorse dress search at Wedding Atelier on 5th Avenue, one of the stylists said something that truly resonated with me:
“The first thing everyone sees is your silhouette – not the lace, not the pattern, not the diamonds – just your shape.”
With this in mind, Look 8, which Oscar de la Renta has gifted to those to-be brides out there in his 2014 collection, does just that. This ivory silk Mikado draped gown exemplifies elegance. It’s simplicity allows the silhouette of the bride to stand out.
And now, with great excitement, I present: Look 8 of the Oscar de la Renta 2014 Bridal Collection.

This ivory silk crepe cowl back gown features a floral corded Chantilly lace appliqué tulle cathedral veil, an antique silver brooch and silver ring both with multi crystals.  The gown is complemented with the ivory swiss dot lace Victoria pump with ivory satin trim.
Thank you for reading! And stay tuned for another Dress of the Week next Friday, but also check with us more often as I will be leaving more lovely notes for you throughout the week!
ciao y besos,

Dress of the Week: Ventura by Manuel Mota for Pronovias

Due to the recent untimely passing of supremely talented designer Manuel Mota, we thought it fitting to honor him with our first Dress of the Week post for 2013.
I had the honor of attending the Bridal Market Week fashion show at the Pronovias flagship store in NYC where this dress was showcased.  The minute the gown made it’s appearance on the runway there was an audible gasp.  This gown is just breathtaking.

Ventura is a magnificent beaded dress from the Manuel Mota 2013 collection for Pronovias. Its sweetheart neckline with wide shoulder straps decorated with delicate bead appliqués is made to flatter. This mermaid wedding dress shimmers with mother-of-pearl embroidery that emphasizes a wonderful figure. The semi-sheer skirt is embellished with original strips of mother-of-pearl embroidery creating a really modern silhouette.

The bride who wears this gown is sure to turn heads.  We would love to hear what you think!

Danielle
