This show’s curation marked a departed from previous season’s minimalist collections, embracing a bold, intricate aesthetic that rendered the gowns as works of art as much as bridal wear: dramatic dresses with colorful floral appliques, sultry, shimmering fabrics, intricate embroidery, and nuanced textures. Collectively, they appealed to fashion forward brides who adhere to the adage more is more. Peruse the gallery above for gowns that caught our eye!
