Like light bouncing off of a brilliant diamond, our Fall 2020 bridal collection was inspired by the beauty that is reflected from within. This collection celebrates a woman’s essence and individuality. It’s about reflecting on who she is and connecting to what really matters to her, including what she wants for her wedding day.
Fancy white diamonds, opaque white diamonds that resemble the dreaminess of a bridal gown’s tulle fabric, plays a part in creating this collection. The array of flowy, soft silhouettes, such as A-line, mermaid, and ballgown shapes have been modified to be voluminous, yet soft, fluid, and modern. Each layer of the airy gowns tell a story, much like each layer of a woman’s personality tells her story.
Intricate lace peeks through light-as-air tulle, silk, or organza embellished by reflective finishes like beads and rhinestones. And subtle hues of ivory, blush, and lavender are played up with silver embroidery, casting a romantic and ethereal aura around the bride. And to debut the new line of gowns, transgender model Valentina Sampaio shines as the face of the couture collection.
Admired for her confidence in revealing her true self, she’s a perfect representation of this collection for the woman who knows she is unique inside and out. “All is beautiful and unceasing, all is music and reason, and all, like diamond, is carbon first, then light.”
