Monique Lhuillier Spring 2017 Wedding Dress Collection
Designer Monique Lhuillier unveiled her latest wedding dresses during Bridal Fashion Week in Ladurée Soho. The courtyard filled with blossoming trees and twinkle lights echoed the ethereal theme of the collection, which Lhuillier says was inspired by "a woman running through a garden, capturing the feeling of being madly in love and someone who feels pure bliss." This idea was translated into flowing, feminine silhouettes and lingerie-inspired elements including silk slip dresses with handpainted flowers, sheer details, high slits, and corset bodices. "I wanted everything to feel delicate ... Everything is more refined this season, everything is lighter," Lhuillier told us in an exclusive Facebook LIVE interview just before the show. "I feel like that's how women today want to feel. It's elegant but it's not over-the-top, so dressy. It's more special."
Delicate dresses call for delicate color, and so the designer worked with a whimsical palette of rose, pistachio, antique ivory, and caramel, accentuated by occasional pops of fuchsia. See all the dresses from the collection here.
