Vintage meets Modern flare

amalia carrara back

Loving the view from behind! There is something incredibly romantic about a long sleeve gown with a low back–it is revealing and yet seductively romantic at the same time. With its soft hint of color, this gown alludes to a more traditional time and in some respects it does give a glance towards tradition. However our modern bride will love the curve hugging pattern of the dress, the open bare back (which surely her mother would not have worn!) and -dare we say it– the all important “booty scoop” that is all the rage today. Thus,  what may seem to be  vintage lace has been reborn into a 21st century masterpiece of bridal fashion. It definitely helps that legendary designer Eve Muscio of the eponymous Eve of Milady Bridals created  this stunning gown delicately embellished with moonstone and crystal.

Romancing the Ballgown

2016 is seeing a resurgence of interest in the Ballgown.  Soft, romantic and alluring, these are definitely not like gowns worn by your mother or grandmother!  Think more along the classic lines of the soft tulle and lace as seen in movies with Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor from the 1950’s.  Whether fashioned with an illusion neckline or with a feminine strapless sweetheart, this silhouette is flattering on all figures.
