On the Fall 2011 runway, designers displayed many beautiful gowns with delicate details and materials. All the trains, ruffles, organza, lace, chiffon and nude palettes suggest a lean toward bridal gowns. Some of the most impressive pieces come from Badgley Mischka, Marchesa and Monique Lhuillier.
In a collection full of blacks and rich colors, Badgley Mischka still managed to produce an off-white sweetheart gown with a multitude of ruffles down the side. A bride needs height to pull off this look, but it’s nevertheless a romantic option. Nude wedding gowns in a non-traditional nude tone creates a unique, vintage feel to the ceremony. This is what Urban Outfitters’ BHLDN line is all about. Two dresses from Marchesa and Monique Lhuillier collections (above) with lace details on sheer fabrics are perfect examples for brides who want to go in this direction.
