Designer Feature: Watters Spring 2015
At the New York Bridal Week, Watters showcased its wide range of bridal couture in a runway extravaganza of the bridal brands under its fashion house. Watters, Wtoo, and Encore presented lovely new confections, and Love Marley, Watters’ newest line for non-traditional brides, was launched.
Opening Love Marley’s ‘Whimsical Forest’ collection was Inez, an embroidered lace fit and flare dress with a casual drape to its train and a deliciously low back. The casually romantic wedding dress set the tone for a dreamy collection for non-traditional brides who love vintage inspired dresses, classically simple and flattering silhouettes, and romantic heirloom lace. Polka dotted tulle gave the gowns a fun and flirty feel, and many dresses were simple lace sheaths that would look beautiful on beach brides with their hair cascading in waves down their sun-kissed shoulders.Inez Lana Wren Amelie Guava Olive
Wtoo Brides showcased their signature feminine and elegant design style, infusing a youthful spirit into traditional silhouettes like the ballgown and the A-line. Referencing the beauty of nature, Wtoo’s collection blossomed with softly fabricated petals on fluttering necklines, and beads sparkling like dewdrops on floral lacework. The enchanted garden theme bloomed into rosy hues, such as Marine with her delicate illusion neckline and beautiful floral embroidery on an ivory and blush palette.Harper Magdalena Marine Isadora Nadine Giselle Wtoo Bridesmaids
In luxurious fabrics featuring elaborate hand-stitched details, the Spring 2015 collection by Vatana Watters is on top on the hottest bridal trends. Plunging illusion necklines, wedding separates, vintage-inspired glamour, and dramatic back details were all seen on the runway. Lace was varied, with timeless scrolling designs as well as more modern interpretations, as in Beilin, a sleek sheath with a modern, short-sleeved silhouette in Pascal lace and cut outs.Zarrin Nyra Isa Kian Corset and Priya Skirt Kaliah Lalai Beilin
With their extravagant beading and intricate details, the gowns are perfect for the modern bride who isn’t shy about her individual style. Like the rest of the Watters Spring 2015 runway, these gowns and their complementing bridesmaids dresses and reception dresses will transport brides-to-be into visions of their own wedding days.
