This year, La Belle Couture graced its very first fashion show of 2016 at Whimsical Moments at Mandarin Oriental Singapore. Featuring only the first part of the newest bridal gown collection, Whimsical Wonderland, the designs are heavily influenced by the whimsical glamour of Alice in Wonderland. Expect extravagant designs that are both classy yet alluring.
The first part of Whimsical Wonderland reflects the uncharacteristic elements of the glitz and glamour. Delicate floral appliques, crystals that shimmer under the dimmest lights and glistening pearls were used to channel a sense of bold elegance. The white wedding gowns were embellished with sheer fabrics, illusion necklines and intricate placement of lace embroidery.
Brides with a minuscule waist and a toned tummy should flaunt it with wedding gown! The slightly see through bodice will reveal your slim waistline and you can be guaranteed that your groom will only have his eyes on you.
Brides who want to go for a wedding gown design that channels a sense of understated elegance will fall in love with this number. The delicate lace details sewn on the bodice with the simple tulle skirt give brides the freedom to accessorise more boldly, such as pairing with extravagant diamond earrings like the image above.
Who can say no to this exquisite yet adventurous wedding dress? With a sheer halter neckline, the see through skirt, and the assorted crystals and lace appliques meticulously sewn onto the entire piece, your wedding guests will be impressed (and envious) by your daring choice. In a good way, of course 😉
With the illusion halter neckline of this wedding dress, brides with a beautiful set of collarbones will look amazing in this number. Furthermore, the intricate lacework on the bodice against the simple tulle skirt will certainly allow brides to feel like a princess without going over the top. What’s more, the plunging back line adds an alluring factor!
Next part of the first series of Whimsical Wonderland is the evening bridal gowns that brides wear for their second march in. Combining glittering sequins, intricate embroidery, delicate lace and luxurious materials, the evening gowns unveils a multitude of midnight hues and abstract textures that is nothing short of sophistication.
Who said every bridal gown design must be decorated with embellishments? The dark blue satin and the ruching on the waist will definitely highlight your curves and transform any bride into the epitome of elegance.
The iconic feature of this bridal gown is the navy blue floral patterns neatly embroidered on the toga bodice and the nude peplum. Despite of the contrasting yet rich colours, it is evident that the craftsmanship of this bridal gown design exudes the beauty of each shade into a perfect harmony.
With the nude chiffon skirt underneath the midnight blue lace, you can see how outstanding the lace patterns are! The sheer blue tulle draping over one side of the shoulders adds an sophisticated touch to the bridal gown while steering away from the popular sweetheart neckline.
Despite of the contrasting colours of ultramarine and fuchsia, it creates a slight holographic effect that will definitely put you into the limelight on your wedding day. Nobody will be able to take their eyes off you.
if you love the colour combination above but don’t wish to go for a bridal gown in a mermaid cut, this evening bridal ball gown will be suitable for you. The neat yet intricate beadings on waistline stands out on the Persian blue ballgown, creating an illusion of a slimmer waistline.
The combination of white and gold can never go wrong, can’t they? What’s more, the meticulous placement of the gold lace against the off white bridal gown emanates a hint of oriental glamour.
The intricate embroidery on the bodice and the hem of the bridal gown sure brings out the richness of garnet bridal gown. This number is great for brides who want to experience the feeling of royalty.
With the gold sequins and beads against the shimmering nude satin, brides will look like nothing but sophistication when she steps out to meet her groom. Of course, the high slit on the side adds an alluring touch.
The hot pink satin bridal ball gown draping over the waistline will turn any bride into a princess! Accompanied with a groom in a timeless suit in maroon, you can be certain that your wedding guests will be enamoured as you graced the aisle with your partner!
Of course, a fashion show is not complete without executing it at the right place. You will be impressed by how grand Mandarin Oriental’s ballroom. The shimmering chandeliers, the finesse in the decoration and the amount of effort dedicated to turn its oriental ballroom into such an exquisite wedding venue.
We are incredibly thankful for the support rendered by Mandarin Oriental Singapore.
