“Will you marry me?” – “Yes, I will”. This conventional and typical part has been already passed and now it is high time for you to choose your unconventional wedding gown that is not only to delight and why not, to kill all the guests and especially your sweetheart, but also to be ideally befitting your body shape and your individualistic vibrations and fluctuations. The Spanish fashion house Pronovias, one of the most ancient and iconic ateliers specializing in bridal gowns and cocktail frocks has recently launched its Pronovias fall 2016 bridal collection, which was showcased in New York for the first time. The collection is again jam-packed with its signature Chantilly lace and silk Mikado, crepe and tulle, thread and gemstone intricate embroidery and elegant, classic silhouettes spiced and flavored with Spanish passion. Your unconventional and idiosyncratic bridal gown is definitely there in anticipation of hugging your sensual body.
The creative director of the white festival, Hervé Moreau has found inspiration in different stories of different women with different body shapes. But to all appearances, it is not only the diversity of female body shapes that lies beneath the ethereal and unearthly fall lineup. Hervé Moreau has definitely thoroughly explored female psychological features, secret desires and the darkest corners of their soul only to draw a conclusion that those mysterious and sweet creatures are so different from each other that it is a must to release a collection that will exhilarate and vitalize every single woman on the day when her life is going to experience a 360-degree change.
This time around the queen of bridal apparel has also included some gowns from the Atelier Pronovias label, distinctive for its luxury and exquisite embroidery decorating the bodices. The lightweight fabrics being in full swing, the Pronovias bridal collection for fall 2016 could not but create some flowing water effect right on the runway. The designer has largely focused on mermaid silhouettes, some of them tightly hugging bodies, others cascading more loosely and easily.
It is exclusively Pronovias’ trademark to encrust the sheer sophisticated tulle so gracefully and delicately with threaded or gemstone embroidery appliqués in the form of some botanical motifs that the brides instantly become an embodiment of a fascinating meadow. And this collection is again parading an array of brides covered with floral appliqués sometimes at the bodice only, sometimes at the hems.
One of the gowns with long sleeves and mermaid tail is split into two parts creating a real symphony of crepe-lace, another one with floral bodice is doubly enhancing the bride’s ability to plant floral bunches on her own body through some intermittent embroidery on the sheer tulle. But it is definitely the final look that proves Pronovias being the cherished dream of every lady. A bridal gown with tulle bateau neckline, sophisticated floral embroidery stretching from head to toe, here and there demonstrating some parts of female sensual body is featuring an infinitely long mermaid tail, well-nigh covering the whole catwalk, which could undoubtedly become the queen of the mermaid kingdom in the ocean.
Ballgown-fancier ladies should not be disappointed, as Hervé Moreau has promised from the beginning to pamper different women with different preferences. Exquisite and sumptuous ballgowns with the same signature floral embroidery, lace and guipure are featuring off-shoulder solutions, heart-shaped and bateau necklines mixed and matched with three-quarter-length, long or short sleeves, spaghetti straps or strapless designs at times styled with tiny satin belts with center bows or even a romantic flower attached on one of the shoulders.
Minimalistic Mikado silk gowns are at times quite difficult to call simple, especially when a massive cape is flowing on the back creating an illusion of realistic angel wings that are at any minute to take the amazing bride up to the fathomless sky.
