Spring 2013 Runway Sneak Peek: Ivy & Aster
A little daring, a little fashion forward, but somehow always classic, the Ivy & Aster bride is headed to France for the Spring 2013 season. “We translated a very chic French girl into our dresses,” the design team says. “We imagined how she would shop for her dress and what she would look for.”
The result is this pale silver chiffon gown with a high neckline, a plunging back, and a flowing skirt. The design’s billowing sheer sleeves are accented by silver and crystal beading for a touch of Parisienne glamour. In true French form, the gown is “effortlessly chic,” says the team.
Spring 2013 Angel Sanchez Wedding Gown Sketch
Venezuelan designer Angel Sanchez defines his upcoming Spring 2013 collection in three words: Delicate, light, and romantic. “The inspiration comes from the materials and the intricate yet romantic embroideries,” he says. “They allowed me to create different effects—from simple and linear to elaborate and impacting.”
The design shown here in particular draws on both streamlined and ornate shapes with a bateau neckline and a formfitting bodice that flows into a frenzy of embroidered fabric. “My bride is a balance between the modern and the classic,” Sanchez explains. “On her wedding day she wants timeless elegance with a unique, modern twist.”
