But… with so many fabulous dresses to choose from, I’m having trouble making a decision. So I need your help! A...

by Azure

About Bride Chic If there ever was a purist when it comes to design, I'd have to say Peter Langner is the finest. Just look at these wedding dresses molded and almost sculpted perfectly to the body. Before he got his own thing going, he actually worked under greats like Ungaro, Lacroix, and Mark Bohan for Dior. He premiered his wedding dress collection in Rome in 1991. I knew he studied architecture as it's apparent in his work. Langner designs in the tradition of Italian Couture,...

Bride Chic: The Big Sleeve Comeback!

by Azure

About Bride Chic With necklines rising it is invariable we'd see the return of a few sleeves this season. Until lately (like the last twenty years or so), bridal fashion was a very restricted zone. With so many rules to follow, modesty was the most crucial. Covering one's self up as much as possible was de riguer, a throwback to 19th century propriety when brides symbolized purity and virginity. Fast forward to the 21st century and brides are celebrating a fashion liberation. Finally...

by Azure
