Blossoming and Bohemian Bridal

This season’s Bridal Fashion Week was filled with more than milky white fabrics with a sweetheart neckline. From incredibly fine detail with hand sewn embroideries and embellishments to higher hemlines and dazzling hues of blues and blush tones. This season, designers broke away from the conventional to beautifully unusual.

Bohemian Bell Sleeves

The Bohemian look was iterated on the runway for several designers. This style bangs the tambourine and sings in beautifully adorned bell sleeves and fine embroidery work.

Bell sleeves give the dress an essence of light and airiness that can turn conservative to up-and-coming. What really keeps this trend exciting is the many ways it has manifested across collections

The fine lacework on these dresses capture the bohemian nature of brilliant crystal visions and being wild and free. The expressive patterns that commonly feature elements of nature such as flowers matched with golds and other metallics to bring the dress to the bridal level of elegance and exquisiteness.

What truly modernized these classic cuts were the use of fabrics and fine detailing. The use of embroidered fabric took Herrera’s beautiful wedding collection to a level of such incredible elegance it takes the simple style and transforms it to an absolutely stunning dress.  The fine beadwork that Kahn and Maier bring to their heightened hemline dresses make the dress ooze in head turning elegance and begs for that “I do”.

This trend seems to present the biggest challenge to designers and whatever message or vision they seem to be conveying. Some designers captured their looks without losing the important feeling of bridal and bells ringing. However, some missed the mark and seemed to slip into a more high school prom look that didn’t do the vision or colors used the justice they deserved.
