The Modern Bride

The modern bride looks for a dress that is elegant, beautiful in its simplicity, and is haute gamme, while being unconventional and making a statement. Adding small touches to the dress, such as coloured underlay, unique lace, or a custom-design belt or back, will give the dress a sophisticated modern flare, while still feeling bridal. The bride can also opt for accessories without precious stones, like Swarovski crystal and pearl, and choose colorful beads in ornamental, abstract designs.
Dresses in atypical materials is coming out strong this year, too. Designers are experimenting more with the feel and design potential of fabrics such as silk and stretch crepe, and fringe laces, as well as the lengths of the dresses: tea cuts and asymmetrical, multi-layered and varied material trains to add extra volume and dimension. Simplicity is definitely in vogue this year, with structured lines and straight silhouettes, harkening to the early 1920s fashion.
