Wedding Dress 2011 Vera Wang

    Yeah, I know it's hardly even spring 2011 yet but big designers work almost a year ahead and Vera Wang has just released the first photos of her 2012 bridal collection!

    In classic Vera fashion it's over the top romantic with lots of floofy-ness and she continues to introduce hints of color to the bridal scene. The collection is full of texture with lots of elaborate draping, over-sized bows (used vertically much of the time!), and layer upon layer of sheer ruffles and tulle. The ball gown silhouette is used much more than her last couple collections but she still has a couple trumpet gowns as well as an A-line or two. One of the stand-out gowns is a pistachio green number with some sumptuous draping on the back! Another creative technique was layering tulle over lace, softening the appearance as though you're seeing the gown through a foggy glass window. The effect is absolutely dreamy! Below is a sampling of the collection!

    I'm loving the mauve sash and the fan-like detail at the bust!

    Now I don't usually go all gaga over designer duds. I couldn't care less what label I'm wearing as long as the outfit works. But I am a huge fan of Vera Wang! If I have an idol it might be her. She is truly talented. Just when you think every thing's been done already, that there is no possible way to make a new & original dress, here comes Vera carrying a big ol' bag of talent! Whenever I see one of her new bridal collections for the first time I always have this "Man, I would've never thought of that!" reaction. Below is a look at her bridal collection for Spring 2011. While it's not as jaw-droppingly different as her Fall 2010 collection it is none the less stunning. The collection is pretty small, just 11 dresses, but is smartly planned & very detail focused. She uses muted hues in addition to traditional whites & offers a range of silhouettes to suit any figure including the sheath, mermaid, & of course ball gown. In keeping with her fall collection, texture reigns supreme with all gowns being very architectural in the way they are sculpted. Features include multi-tiered skirts, vertical pleating, & a-symmetrical bodices, meaning that these gowns are not so much sewn as they are built! The draping on the mermaid gown is particularly sublime & whisper light pastels like pale peach and washed out charcoal are safe colors for any complexion. The collection is frothy and breathless, going off the theme of "fragile femininity". Well Vera my dear, you've certainly left me breathless!
