Last week we featured Maggie Sottero’s mesmerising Fall 2015 collection which turned out to be super popular with our wollies, so this week – entirely inspired by Monday’s real bride Liz who looked incredible in Sottero & Midgley’s sparkling sheath Sonata – we’ve decided to take a look at what the designer’s self-proclaimed ‘Glamour’ line is offering 2015/2016 brides. And oh, what an offering it is…
There is a graceful element running through the entire collection of uber glam dresses, which Sottero achieves by balancing elegant and ornate beading and elaborate lace with light and airy tulle and bang-on-trend sheer accents. These are the gowns one imagines when one envisions today’s traditional yet timeless bride – elegant silhouettes, intricate details and just the right amount of sparkle to make a real statement.
When it comes to details, Sottero has us covered in a myriad of ways. Dresses with dramatic laser cut appliques, plunging necklines, romantic trains and jaw-droppingly pretty illusion backs abound, while more subtle styles can be glammed up to the max with accessories such as stunning Swarovski crystal beaded cap sleeve shoulder straps (see Demetria), and Swarovski sashes. So if you’re on the hunt for an impressive ballgown, a slinky, shimmering beaded sheath or a fit n’ flare that scream ‘VA-VA-WOOM!’, look no further…
