Royal Inspired Gown!

Images By Carrie Wildes

Since Kate Middleton, will becoming a Princess tomorrow we have been getting a ton of inquiries of what do we think she will wear.

As she has proven to be a modern princess and not so old fashioned, and although no one knows what she will be wearing ,we believe that Kate will be the introduction of a contemporary princess bride. I'm very confident that she will incorporate some traditional touches to her royal gown.

If we were designing Kate's dress we would suggest a combination of Paulina with silk alencon lace and Donatella layers of chiffon and vintage embellishment. I would keep her gown Strapless and I would add a fabulous bolero. Also let's not forget a unique and fabulous headpiece with 3-Flowers and feathers.

Well the mystery is about to unveiled, so all we have to so is wait for Friday morning.

I will be watching, will you be???

2011 Collections: Introducing Dolci!!!

Since we all love sweets I decided to name our children's wear "Dolci"
I have always loved tulle skirts when I was a little girl! It's so much fun to twirl in them:)

Our flower girl dresses are designed with the children in mind because we want them to love them as much as we do.

Our "Creme Puff" is made with a circular Tulle skirt lined with silk duchess fabric. The bodice is embellished with large rosetta's to give it a feel of elegance.

Our "Tiramisu" is made with a circular tulle skirt and lined with silk duchess fabric. The bodice is simple with a black sash and mini rosetta(sash could be different colors).

how do you like them??

2011 Collections Introducing Genevieve!

Genevieve is not your traditional wedding gown.

This is truly one of my favorites from our 2011 collections.

During the design process,I wanted to create something different and out of the box.

Genevieve is sophisticated and revealing at the same time. The high collar and sleeves make the gown demure and the deep-v makes it very sexy!

We used 11 yards of silk duchess satin to create and line Genevieve.

2011 Collections: Introducing Georgina!

Although I'm not a ball gown kind of girl, I have to admit I love this one! Georgina is a classic ball gown with a gorgeous long sash that can be made in any color. The pop of color creates a bold contrast and can also match the wedding colors. Georgina is made with 10 yards of luxurious silk duchess satin. Also it has a total of 3 skirts so that the bride feels the silk against her skin. This is for the bride that wants an upscale princess look!
