bridal fashion week • couture to die for

oh, these gowns.

if you follow my blog you already know i have a mad obsession with wedding dresses. and the way ateliers are pushing the envelope with couture this year it makes we wish wedding finery were acceptable as everyday wear.

this breath-of-spring gown is fresh from the runway by atelier aimée. the lavender floral design over silk organza is out of this world. ethereal. modern. feminine.

the detail is exquisite, and the overall effect — so unexpected. the color, handled by a lesser designer, could go horribly wrong, but here it is effortlessly chic.

and the back. a waterfall of silk organza gathered with a fabric wisteria branch. it's a one-of-a-kind gown that will drop jaws coming down the aisle.

i find great inspiration for invitation design on the runway, and this season will be no exception. i am loving this color for spring, and already have a couple of designs in this palette.

stay tuned for more...and enjoy fashion week, everyone.
