Bridal Market: Romona Keveza

November 03

The first show I attend was Romona Keveza and it was a show stopper. Inspired by Brigette Bardot, the theme was definitely glamorous, sexy and so very french. I love these bold red evening dresses!

The short white a-line dress is so flirty and fun, it would make quite the party dress. And I love the traditional meets modern take of the two bottom gowns, the  chiffon overlay is so pretty and etheral.

And then there was a string of black dresses and one slinky champagne dress. I love the neckline and the slit in the of the dress in upper right, which one is your fav?

Yesterday morning I attended the Monique Lhuillier show and is was beyond words. The set design was made of  floating, white, birch trees and set the stage for the nature inspired designs.


Above was mine and Megan’s favorite dress by far. This picture really doesn’t capture this dress, Nightingale. The tulle illusion necklace had thoughtfully placed sparkles all over it and it was pure magic.


This flirty little mini dress, Iris, was the third one shown. With some colorful heels this is the perfect wedding dress for the party girl.


Monique also showed several dress with this a keyhole neckline. I really loved this dress, the neckline was like a necklace. I also loved the contrast of the structured beading with the flowly empire-waisted dress.


I loved this lace dress, the neckline is super flattering, and the slit adds a sexy touch without being too much.


Of course, Monique is know for her beautiful full shirt wedding dresses, and she did not disappoint on this front. The assymetrical shoulder and sculptural skirt of this dress, was the perfect mix of modern and traditional.


The petal details coupled with tulle overlay is so darn romantic.


The finale, the crowd went wild…

If you happen to be in the New York area this coming Wednesday, March 18th, 2009 between 2pm-4pm, Monique Lhuillier will be making a personal appearance at Bergdorf Goodman. She will be unveiling an exclusive wedding line only available at Bergdorf’s. Talk about awesome! The PR team was kind enough to send me these sketches for us all to drool over.

I love the shape, so timeless, yet modern.

I love the asymmetrical gathering details of this dress.

So go, and if you do– send me pictures!!!

Wendy also had these custom shoes made to go with her dress. How gorgeous is that off-center bow?
