Taking the plunge with a daring bridal neckline by BHLDN

Taking the plunge by getting married is a huge step no doubt, but wearing a daring, deep V-neckline as you walk down the aisle, like these bridal gown styles by BHLDN, is another step altogether! The deep V is most flattering for 'smaller cup' gals to keep a smooth line along ones decolletage without giving it all away, still we wonder; are you daring enough to take the plunge?

Christina Sfez wows with her ultra-French, hip and feminine, Bridal Gown Designs

Christina Sfez is a bridal gown designer extraordinaire, mais non? With these hip and sweetly feminine designs that hail from her Maison Francaise. You can really see the French influence in her collection of feminine yet stark bridal gowns. Each of her creations is unique and personal and are designed and created by hand from the finest materials, meticulously selected, including silk tulle, Georgette crêpe and Calais lace. Nous aimons! 

In addition to her desire for a more personal relationship with her clients, Christina has always loved collecting vintage pieces from flea markets either in Provence where she lives, or during her travels abroad. By marrying different styles from various eras, these pieces give a unique and timeless look to her dresses.

She welcomes each bride-to-be to visit her in her workshop situated in the heart of Marseille. Weaving a unique link with each of her clients, she is able to conceive a dress in their image, marked by elegance and 'delicatesse' to celebrate this exceptional moment.

This shoot is the perfect blend of strong lines and textures and soft colors and styling. Bonus: it even has a gorgeous geode cake, floral decorated picture frames [love!] and crystal place settings in Pantone's Color of the Year for 2108 Ultra Violet! This super design team is so on trend for weddings and style and we think they've created the perfect blend of the masculine and the feminine with this dramatic and fresh wedding styled shoot! Enjoy!

Melissa Barrad, Owner of I DO Weddings and Events and Lead Stylist in the shoot says, "Once I visited the Sparks Gallery, I knew it was a special place. I loved the lighting, and of course, that they feature California artists. With that in mind, we pooled together California based vendors and San Diego natives, like myself, to create a unique romantic feel with a laid-back vibe. We wanted to work with colors that would enhance the art, not take away from it."

Brides who love drama your dream designer is here! Meet Indian Designer Naeem Khan

Born and raised in Mumbai, bridal gown designer Naeem Khan grew up in a world surrounded by culture, architecture, art, history and design. As a boy, he cultivated a vast knowledge of textiles under the watchful eyes of his grandfather and father, both of whom designed intricate clothing worn by Indian royal families. Khan ultimately moved to the United States as a teenager to become a designer and launched his career as an apprentice for legendary American designer Halston at the age of 20. During his time with Halston, he immersed himself in the ethos of modern restraint and learned the craft of draping and cutting fabric to create a clean, elegant and timeless silhouette. Khan eventually merged this design philosophy with the knowledge he gained from his family’s business to nurture his own unique style, and the Naeem Khan design aesthetic was born.

IMG_2914.PNG

Khan launched his eponymous collection in 2003 and began selling at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Since then his collections have adorned glamorous women around the world, including Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, Rachel McAdams, First Lady Michelle Obama, Queen Noor of Jordan, and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, among others.

IMG_2915.PNG

In 2008, he was inducted as a member of the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America and most recently launched the Naeem Khan Bridal collection in 2013. 

IMG_2916.PNG

Today the Naeem Khan Ready-to-Wear and Bridal collections are sold at more than 150 retail outlets across the world. The closest complete bridal selection for Nareem Khan is in Beverly Hills at the Saks Fifth Avenue on Wilshire Boulevard, but Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus do carry his incredible ready to wear collections locally.
