The new collection of Rosa Clara wedding dresses for 2014 is truly stunning. Structured dresses with billowing skirts, lace overlays and intricate detailed embellishments reminiscent of haute couture. Rosa Clara is stocked all over the Middle East but unfortunately not yet in the UAE; a quick hop over to Qatar it will have to be.
Celebrity red carpet couturier of choice, Romona Keveza’s Spring 2014 collection paid tribute to timeless style. Named ‘A Passage Through Time’, Keveza’s latest offering fused great fashion moments of the past with a modern sensibility. Each gown within the collection represents a particular era; from the elegance of the 1920’s right through to the millennium and into the future, this collection is exquisitely diverse.
Holding true to the timeless style she is known for, Rita Vinieris Fall 2014 collection embodies sophisticated elegance. Romantic details and subtle embellishments guarantees this collections popularity among brides looking for a classic look.
Intricate lace overlays and elaborate laser-cut detailing define Francesca Miranda’s Spring 2014 collection. Known for her celebrity clients, her bridal gowns have a distinctive cut and style. My favourite of this collection is her final look; a stunning combination of an illusion lace neckline with a blue and white floral-patterned A-line skirt.
New York designer Sareh Nouri unveiled her fall collection at bridal fashion week and it has made me want to go bridal dress shopping again; I want the grey ‘Marie Antoinette’ and the jewel encrusted ‘Ziba’ and the dramatic mermaid finish of ‘Field of Love’. You see, I want it all.
Classic couture and contemporary lines make for a totally dreamy collection. You’ll want it all too….don’t say I didn’t warn you!
We are on the brink of the Dubai wedding season and with that in mind I have put together some moodboards for wedding guests. It always feels slightly strange here that when you need your summer wardrobe the shops are full to the brim of the winter collections.
Beach weddings are by their very nature often relaxed affairs and as a guest you can take complete advantage of this. Here are some of my ideas for beach wedding looks:
Short and sweet
Elegant and formal
As all expats here in Dubai know, a beach event does not always automatically mean a relaxed day is in order. This look is for the smart beach wedding. I won’t lie, this look evolved around the shoes for me – studded Valentino’s…my heart melts. Next came the bold but classic dress and a timeless bag finishes the whole thing off perfectly.
