Bridal Collection Fall 2016
“Dawn is the time when…only the light moves”- Leonora Carrington
On Friday, Ines Di Santo presented her Fall 2016 Bridal Collection at The IAC Building, a marvel of deconstructionism designed by Frank Gehry.
A fitting choice as Di Santo’s collection was inspired by light and all of its beautiful qualities. Sheer layers of fabric that allowed sparkles to shine thru, delicate Chantilly lace woven through the gowns, embroidery that flowed over soft sheer folds. Refined silhouettes with couture like details of lace and beading.
Standouts from the collection include a long sleeved lace asymmetrical mid-length gown with delicate beading, a modern masterpiece featuring a sheer lace bodysuit with dramatic tulle over-skirt with frosted lace and mohair accents, a signature mermaid gown in Organza with trailing chiffon floral appliques on an embroidered vine with a matching detachable train.The show culminated in a burst of unexpected playfulness with a lace asymmetrical mini aptly named Radiant.
Ines Di Santo was able to get everyone’s attention with new and different designs for every bride. From the ball gown to fashion-forward dresses; the designer took several risks and the reactions were very positive. Personally loved the new collection!
