Beautiful Mother of the Bride, Special Occasion and Formal Evening Dresses by Ivonne Dome
We are excited to introduce our brides to the Sophia Tolli Collection for Mon Cheri. When you see the unforgettable craftsmanship and exceptional fit of her beautiful gowns, it comes as no surprise to learn that her love of fashion is the result of growing up surrounded by fabrics, sewing machine, and a dressmaker aunt. Her passion for the art of gown design is obvious when you see how ingeniously she designs. Sophia creates a stunning gown, and then provides easy customization options that allow a bride to make it just right for her style and comfort.
A perfect example of this is the dress below, Novella (Y21663). The strapless, crystal hand-beaded, sweetheart neckline bodice and corset back, tops a strapless misty tulle over sequin tulle, creating a full skirt with chapel train. Removable spaghetti and halter straps are included with the gown to allow you to find the look that is the most flattering for you.
If you adore the Novella, but prefer a zipper instead of a corset, Sophia Tolli offers the option of a back zipper trimmed with diamante buttons and loops (sold as Y21663ZB). Or if you like the idea of having a shoulder strap, customize your dress by adding matching beaded and embroidered illusion cap sleeves (sold separately as Y21663CSV). It’s amazing that such small changes can give you a totally different look!
If a little more sleeve feels more like your style, then you can customize Novella with hand-beaded embroidered illusion three-quarter length sleeves (sold separately as Y21663SL). Sophia Tolli gives you several beautiful styling choices so that you can easily achieve different looks throughout your big day!
There’s something about tulle that every woman loves. And the way Sophia Tolli has layered it to create the figure-hugging Olivine is heavenly. Featuring a plunging, strapless sweetheart neckline with a sheer peekaboo inset and sheer side bodice panels for an ultra slimming effect, this dress is perfect for the bride who wants to make a head-turning entrance!
From the back, the Olivine only gets better – it has a sheer illusion lace back with visible boning, a zipper trimmed with diamante buttons, and beaded lace appliqués that spill down the flared skirt to a chapel train. Standard detachable spaghetti and halter straps are included as well.
Thinking that a little more coverage and a corset back would be more comfortable? Then you will love the option below (sold as Y21825LB). The beautiful, full lace back is also available with a zipper. So many little ways to make this your perfect dress!
If you have been considering wearing different dresses for the ceremony and reception, Sophie Tolli makes it easy for you. Add the illusion long sleeves to Olivine (sold separately as Y21825SL). Since they are detachable, just slip them off before your reception and you instantly have a different dress!
As you can see, Sophia Tolli offers both classic and couture bridal designs for a broad range of design choices. Lovely beading, boning, organzas and tulles are used to craft styles including entrance making strapless ballgowns, figure-flattering A-line dresses, sultry halters with slim skirts, and stunning trumpet gowns like the Olivine – all with Sophia’s signature draping, fit and construction. Now all you have to do is find a retailer near you and make an appointment to find the beginning of your beautiful day!
