Brides are picky, and at the cost of wedding dress today, they have every right to be. Romona Keveza is all about appealing to her customers, so she designs two different collections for her brides to choose from. Legends is a collection that features classic bridal styles and Collections is for the more fashion-forward bride. Both the bridal collections are beautiful and the upcoming Romona Keveza fall 2017 bridal season is no different.
Both the collections could not be more different from each other, with the Collections showing out in chic stunningly modern silhouettes with that addition of color, even including a few classic styled pieces with a twist. Legends, however, was the time tested, classic bridal style with one of the most classic and beautiful dresses as the inspiration.
For fall 2017, Romona Kevesa was inspired by Grace Kelly, producing 14 white, classically designed wedding gowns. Grace Kelly’s wedding gown is iconic, well known for its beauty since April 19, 1956 when she married Prince Rainier III of Monaco. Photos of her elbow-length veil and stunning ball gown-styled silhouette with long lace sleeves set a trend that now, 60 plus years later, is still inspiring brides-to-be. This was incredibly apparent in the wedding gowns under the Legends line for fall 2017.
The classic appearance and distinction of the Romona Keveza Legends fall 2017 bridal collection is obvious throughout the fourteen floor-length looks and is likely along the lines of what many more classically minded brides were thinking of wearing. The dedication to detail and craftsmanship was shown in the use of very delicate, beautiful lace and beaded embroidered designs and details throughout the collection.
For those brides who do not wish to fully change out of their gowns for their receptions, Romona Keveza included turtleneck options and off-the-shoulder over-blouses made of lace to create a different, yet still remarkably elegant look for the reception.
Collections on the other hand was designed with color and brought the drama for fall 2017’s modernist bride. With this line, though there was an option with volume, that is more on the outskirts of a modernist bride’s mindset.
The collection featured very architecturally designed dresses as well. Here we have fit and flare dresses with hints of silver as an example, with a sheer boat-necked, long-sleeve overlay for a chic look.
An incredibly stunning floor-length gown with layers of tinted silk organza featured a trim on the bottom that tacitly floated across the floor, and expertly detailed embroidery at the waist and across the strapless sweetheart neckline. The best detail of the gown was the floor-length silk organza cape, buttoned at the hollow of the neck – just a beautiful addition.
My favorite of all the dresses, however, was the floor-length fit and flair dress that featured a lace overlay on a deep V, plunging sweet heart neckline and shorter dress. The floral lace stood out beautifully from top to bottom creating a really beautiful look.
