Haute Couture Fashion Week always tells us what to look for in bridal dress trends of the future.
I always say; The wedding gown is the only time most women get to wear a piece of couture. So Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week always includes the most innovative wedding dresses. The summer shows (for Fall/Winter 2017) did not disappoint, as bridal couture was well represented as usual.
I’ve compiled the bridal-inspired highlights from the Couture Fashion shows in Paris last week…
- Elie Saab Finale Look – Because you didn’t know that you wanted a ‘bridal hoodie’. The fanciest ‘Bridal Hoodie’ ever!
2. Stephane Rolland- Modern, contemporary, and geometric. A simple white column dress with a very interesting twist.
3. Georges Hobeika – A stunning modern princess look, complete with the on-trend ‘cold shoulder’.
4. Ralph & Russo – Do you see the hint of mint green? This is one of several couture dresses shown that has the slightest minty tint.
5. Monique Lhuillier – This beauty is perfect for your vintage/ Gatsby/ Roaring 20’s-style wedding. Beading and fringe, what’s not to love?
6. Guo Pei – So. Much. Fun. This dress is whimsical, but modern. It’s also sure to steal the spotlight at any wedding.
7. Giambattista Valli – It’s so pretty that it melts my cold little heart! This is one of the most romantic gowns I’ve come across recently.
8. Georges Chakra – This finale gown is a really fun twist on the traditional wedding gown. Granted, I’m always a sucker for thigh-high bridal boots!
9. Ziad Nakad – One of several bridal gowns with stunning details. The retro shoulder makes this already visually spectacular dress even cooler.
10. Zuhair Murad- There’s a lot of beauty to look at on this pretty wedding dress, and also a lot of details. But the grey undertones give the look an interesting and dramatic moodiness.
12. Tony Ward Couture – Great pop of color with the geometric gold bottom design. The juxtaposition of the romantic top with the geometric bottom makes this gown unexpectedly perfect.
13. Georges Hobeika – It’s actually not a jumpsuit, even though it looks like one. This is a sleek and chic bridal look that won me over.
14. Ellie Saab – I called this ‘The White Princess Chic’ (in my head). You’ll understand the reference if you’ve watched The White Princess and The White Queen on Starz. Medieval, caped, goodness.
Haute Couture Week is so much awesome dressporn and fantasy wedding dresses, that it is hands down my favorite. Which ones are your faves, and what do you think will translate to the wedding dress trends? Let me know in the comments.
