Sareh Nouri Fall 2020 Wedding Dress Collection
If you've been searching for a wedding dress for—what you feel like is—too long, go ahead and put Sareh Nouri's newest collection, which recently debuted at New York City's Bridal Fashion Week, on your list. The label's designer knows what this feels like; her journey into bridal fashion—a departure from her prior career in graphic design—was born out of her frustrating (and fruitless) shopping experience.
Nouri knew that there was a hole in the market for elegant, refined pieces that feel subtly Old-World—a design aesthetic that she now works into each and every collection, adding subtle twists along the way. Her newest oeuvre speaks to the creative's signature vibe through crisp, vintage-inspired pieces (some of which feature Victorian high necklines and include patterns reminiscent of those on antique china). Voluminous skirts speak to this trope as well—dynamic pleats bring texture and movement to the designs, which recall the days of made-to-order ball gowns and petticoats.
However, these aren't garments of wedding days past; there are so many details that bring this classically-inspired series right into modernity. Graceful, but contemporary necklines (think romantic scoop backs and asymmetrical fold-over one-shoulders), impossibly clean lines (just wait until you see the sheaths!), and timely embellishments (like lace overlays and feminine peplums) are just a few of the elements that make this collection feel fresh. The gist? The perfect balance of old-meets-new means there's something ahead for every timeless bride-to-be.
