When dreaming up this season’s new assortment, BHLDN was on the hunt for gowns and dresses that touched on current key trends in the bridal industry. The brand knew that eye-catching artwork and embellishments such as bejeweled necklines, graphic floral embroidery, sheer laces, and encrusted tulle were going to play a pivotal role in the fall season. Despite the rich flourishes, they also kept comfort and wearability in mind.
The end result? A season that offers unique and beautifully made gowns and dresses that appeal the various BHLDN brides – the bohemian, the romantic, the sophisticate, and even combinations of all three.
Today BHLDN launches its much-anticipated fall 2015 collection with a “twice enchanted” lookbook. The images present a modern fairytale in which true love blossoms amidst the beautiful surroundings of the Palácio de Monserrate in Sintra, Portugal.
Building on the success of previous collections, the newest assortment includes 17 new wedding gowns, four bridal skirts, a bridal bodysuit and corset, six bridesmaids dresses, three reception dresses and three flower girl dresses along with three new cold weather toppers and an abundance of stunning wedding accessories. The collection features dresses from beloved designers like Catherine Deane, Nicole Miller and Vatana Watters, as well as styles from designers that are new to BHLDN, like Donna Morgan and Nellystella.
Highlights include the Wesley Gown by Needle and Thread, featuring exquisite pearlescent lattice and vintage-inspired flora beading and an airy, layered tulle hemline, the Rosemary Gown by Tadashi Shoji featuring applique fabric feathers that float gracefully upon a plunging and pleated v-bodice, and the Bridgette Gown by Catherine Dean which catches the eye with its illusion high neck, half-sleeves and delicate allover lace. Weightless sweeping trains, ribbon accenting, carefully placed pleats and dainty button backs can also be found in the one-of-a-kind assortment.
Stunning natural landscapes, historic architecture, turquoise seas - doesn't that sound (and look!) like such a dreamy place to be married?
