The following description from Vera Wang: “To wear Gabriela is to become a delicate, tissue-wrapped present: a whisper-thin layer of tulle stretches across the exposed corset bodice. Gabriela’s sweetheart neckline is very flirtatious, but the tulle overlay gives it a peekaboo effect: cheek and poise at the same time. Gabriela’s modified mermaid silhouette works beautifully for any body, and can fit appropriately with a variety of ceremonial settings. It can go more formal, or more contemporary or outdoor. As classic a gown as it is, where Gabriela pushes the envelope is in the playful texture of the skirt, with its effervescent cut blossoms, all bordered with horsehair. The horsehair that lines the tulle allows the fabric to stand at attention, and you see the light pass through it in different saturations. It becomes angelic. It’s another beautiful study in volumes and transparencies.”
