Real Flower Wedding Dresses

Category : Wedding Dresses

Wedding dresses either being embellished with multiple layered organza flowers or floral lines sketched by crystals or pearls, give us a natural feel and are truly beautiful.

How about dresses made with true flowers? This may sound impractical. But Zita Elze, a horticultural artist from UK, brought it to life.

Zita Elze was born in Brazil and went on to study horticultural design and upholstery design.

Zita Elze stitched cream-colored, light pink and peak green flowers and leaves onto satin and these formed the upper part of wedding dresses. The skirt part were made to As for the skirts of those dresses, they were made to be trains of feather and organza.

Zita Elze said the flowers and leaves that she had chosen were very soft and felt like fur, “I would like to make floral wedding dresses that can be worn on your body, rather than ones could only be displayed in the show window.”

Besides flower wedding dresses, Zita also made other accessories set with flowers, such as bridal handbags and bumbersoll.

The Big Reveal!

Category : Wedding Dresses

Is it underwear, or outerwear, 2016 Fashion confirms – it’s both! And it’s back!

In 1969 a famous magazine had the heading “What are you trying to hide?”, suggested that you need not worry about showing what was underneath your outfit, they stated “Show that you mean it,” it declared. “Don’t count on your underclothes not showing, choose them so if they do, it doesn’t matter.” This was put together with a model shot, represented a key moment in fashion history of underwear as outerwear!

Some 45 years later, what is public and private fashion is not clear, what should be shown or covered up? This is shown on the catwalk. This year, 2016, both Givenchy and Calvin Klein have modeled slip dress themed attire, along with Burberry’s recent show in London.

A quick look through slip dress shows us how popular it is and has been. Fans of the style include: Kate Moss, Michelle Pfeiffer’s Elvira Hancock in Scarface, Elizabeth Taylor, Rihanna, Madonna, Drew Barrymore, Courtney Love, Veronica Lake and Princess Diana.

In its standard form the slip dress, with its spaghetti straps, silky fabric and typical lacy trim, mirrors underwear, but also wants to be on show.

Kate Moss has also shown she is a fan of the underwear as outwear look to model agency party,
in 1993. Wearing a transparent silver slip by Liza Bruce. She finished the outfit off with a beer bottle and a Cigarette, the dress leaves nothing to the imagination and Moss seems very casual with her look!

Right Bra for the Big Day

Category : Wedding Dresses

The wedding ceremony is an important event for a bride. Every detail accounts. We know just how important it is choosing the right bra for the big day.

Daily worn bras of 3/4 cup, 1/2 cup and full cup all have slight shaping functions. They are fit for fashionable brides who have obvious S-shape figures. When you have decided on your wedding dress for the ceremony, you can match the style and colour of your bra with your dress.

The shape of the cup should match with the bust cutting of the dress. For brides wearing A-B bras, we recommend a 3/4 cup bra. C-D cup would be better choosing a 1/2 cup bra. Brides with small busts need to choose thicker full cup bras. While thinner full cup bras are first choice for brides who wear D cup or larger bras.

Which Train for Your Wedding Dress

Category : Wedding Dresses

Wedding dresses with different trains.

We know the dream of walking down the aisle wearing a beautiful dress with a fabulous train to match. Your personal preference will judge how long you’d like your train to be. Different length trains will suit brides with different figures and different wedding ceremonies.

1. Sweep Train

The length of the train to the floor is shorter than 30cm. Usually the back hem is only a few inches lower than the front hem. It is perfect for an elegant informal or semi-formal wedding gown.

2. Court Train

The length of the train is 30cm to 50cm. This kind of train would be great for a semi-formal wedding ceremony.

3. Chapel Train

The train length is 50cm to 80cm. It is perfect for a semi-formal wedding gown but could be used for a formal or informal wedding gown as well.

4. Cathedral Train

Usually the train length is 80cm to 130cm. This is usually used for a formal wedding. These dresses often come with a bustling option or a removable train to allow for better movement on the dance floor.

5. Royal Train

The train length is over 130cm. Also called a Monarch train, this train is typically used for very formal weddings.

6. Watteau Train

This is the train attached to shoulder of the wedding dress. It’s an ideal way to show the fabric of the fabric of your dress.
