What does the fashion-forward bride choose to wear to her own nuptials? Of course, there’s no better place to look for bridal gown inspiration than the most recent haute couture shows hitting the Paris runway.
Ziad Nakad is no stranger to the blissful haute couture culture, and these seven designer looks are perfect for a beautiful, style-loving bride for whom price is no issue!
The Belted Countess
The capped sleeve wedding dress redefines elegance with a belt to shape your silhouette. Adorned with silk chiffon and luscious sequins, this gown is a soft approach to haute couture, but an ultimate timeless piece.
The Floral Baroness
Extensive floral embellishment, supremely structured details, and a slew of prettiness help make haute couture more contemporary while still obtaining the high-society flare.
The Fringed Sovereign
The artisanal handiwork and major skill that goes into fringe detailing is jaw-dropping. The plunging neck gown, covered in a fuzz of fringed sequins give way to an ornate embroidered design suited for a winter bride.
The Caped Princess
More is more with a haute couture wedding gown and cape. This gown oozes old Hollywood glamour with a mix of coloured beading and silk organza.
The Golden Amazon
The bridal collection started off soft and sweet, with patterns and fabric being nothing short of exquisite. But it seems the rise of golden gowns, even jewel-toned crystals have become the new haute couture for 2017. Should we argue against these unique designs and materials? We say ‘no’.
The Royal Duchess
The haute couture world is delicate, but ever-so royal. Ziad Nakad pushes the boundaries, transforming the traditional look into a Garden of Eden. The gorgeous high-neck dress made from chiffon, silk, and handmade flowers with Swarovski crystal is romantic to say the least.
The White Queen
Haute couture has no boundaries with shimmering, intricately-detailed ball gowns of silk chiffon and Swarovski crystal. The white queen look is perfect for the fashion-forward couture bride.
