Wedding dress brands
If we talk about wedding dresses, then it is simply impossible not to remember the works of Vera Wang. She radically changed the idea of wedding fashion and still amazes brides with bright collections of wedding dresses. Models are characterized by sophistication and elegance, airiness and magic, as well as thoughtfulness of images to the smallest detail.
The future great designer Vera Wang was born in 1949. Her father was a large and successful entrepreneur in New York. From childhood, the girl was seriously engaged in figure skating, but she was not destined to become an ice star despite many awards and first places.
After graduation, there was Sarah Lawrence College, in which the young girl comprehended the history of art. Studying at this college was not in vain, opening the world of fashion to Vera, which she learned through Vogue magazine. Here the young girl worked for 17 years.
Maybe she would continue to prepare fashionable gloss for release, if not for one fateful event in her life — her own wedding. Like other brides, Vera faced the problem of choosing a wedding dress.
Despite the large selection, numerous offers and unlimited financial opportunities, the girl did not manage to find the right outfit for herself. The only way out that Vera could find for herself was to create a dress on her own. It was her first step towards creating her own collection of wedding dresses. Then there was the opening of the wedding salon.
No bride can consciously refuse a dress that was created by the hands of Vera Wang. But why are they so attractive? Let’s figure it out together.
- No matter how many models would be created, but each is inherent in uniqueness, absolute originality and amazing unusualness. Dresses are like leaves on trees — no matter how much you look, you won’t be able to find two identical ones.
- In each outfit, to varying degrees, there is a unique chic, light femininity, tenderness and unobtrusive elegance. The presence of a dress from Vera Wang dooms the image of the bride to become the most beautiful.
- The use of natural expensive fabrics of the highest quality is the first invariable principle of Vera’s work.
- Every detail and all decorations on the dresses are made by hand.
- A variety of models and styles allows each bride to choose her outfit.
- In his works, the designer breaks stereotypes and cancels traditions. The most unusual colors are found in wedding collections: black, red, green and burgundy.
Every year, Vera Wang releases two collections. The spring/summer 2011 collection is filled with feminine silhouettes, which were created using small floral elements, voluminous details and individual petals. Used tulle and organza looked very harmonious in delicate images. Color schemes were varied: from white and all sorts of creams to silver and seductive lilac.
The next collection of the same year surprised fans of the great designer’s work with the absence of white. The dresses were more like tempting desserts. Satin black ribbons served as the main decorations, and the heads of the models were decorated with decorative elements. Dresses were mostly made from light or flowing materials.
The inspiration for the new season seems to have been the outfits worn by Japanese geishas. There are many frills, ribbons framing the waist, and other delicate and touching elements in the dresses. There is not a single white dress in this collection, but there are many variations of peach, ash gray and pistachio shades.
The second collection in 2012 became a real sensation in the world of wedding fashion, as the entire collection was dedicated to black dresses. Long models in rich black looked breathtaking, unusual and individual. We diluted this range of dresses in nude shade.
Spring 2013 with the help of Vera Wang was filled with passion, which was expressed in rich red tones. Dresses were decorated with flounces, unusual draperies and numerous frills.
It was replaced by a collection completely made in ivory color. The combination of silk and ivory turned out perfect. The addition was lace and ribbons, which added elegance to the already beautiful outfits.
This collection was saturated with femininity and romance.
The spring-summer collection of 2014 appeared in a combination of black and white. Black gloves looked unusual in combination with snow-white dresses. The corsets had seductive and sometimes unusual cutouts. Some dresses were decorated with geometric elements that resembled seat belts.
This collection is the exact opposite of what we are all used to seeing in classic wedding looks.
But the autumn-winter collection again brings us back to tenderness and femininity. The dresses looked like flowers from the Garden of Eden.
The spring-summer 2015 collection was dedicated to decadence and gothic fashion. Here the emphasis is on minimalism, sensuality, some negligence.
Vera Wang used flowing lines, delicate lace and white. This beauty is difficult to describe in words, it is better to see photos of models.
Dreaminess and some naivety can be traced in the new collections from Vera Wang. It offers a grunge style where asymmetrical silhouettes are intertwined with antique-style decor.
Tulle slip dresses, lace mermaids with a train, minimalist silk floor-length models and translucent straight silhouettes are complemented by brutal black boots, sunglasses and chains. Sequins and flower appliqués also serve as a dress decor.
