Designer Feature: Sareh Nouri Spring 2016

For Spring 2016, Sareh Nouri presented a collection that stays true to its ethereal and feminine aesthetic through luxurious textiles and impeccable structure.

The Sareh Nouri Spring 2016 collection was presented at an intimate affair held at The London Hotel in New York. Instead of a runway, we were invited to a chic room overlooking New York’s skyline, and fashion designer Sareh herself introduced her gorgeous creations over tea and cake. Models walked in wearing the romantic, feminine gowns, and we leaned in close to touch the fine Italian silks and delicate, handcrafted lace from House of Sophie Halette. Up close, every intricate detail spoke of Sareh’s passion for creating wedding gowns that would embody a bride’s dreams.

The collection was signature Sareh Nouri, with timeless silhouettes that are flatteringly feminine, in lightweight and luxuriously detailed fabrics. Voluptuously sculpted mermaid cuts created statuesque figures in romantic lace and ethereal tulle fishtail skirts, and turned the volume up for Ingrid, a modern, architectural gown featuring a dramatic bow and train, that can be detached for the reception. Ballgowns were light and whimsical—no stiff, princess-like skirts here. And for the more traditional bride, there were beautiful A-line gowns that fell gently to the ground in shimmering folds.

French lace added a rich, sensuous texture to the gowns, with the beautiful designs from Sophie Halette complementing the collection’s femininity perfectly. Skimming the neckline and covering the arms with its delicate motifs, the lace opened up show to some skin in the back, creating a lovely back view of the gowns. The collection had an ethereal shimmer, with re-embroidered lace featuring tiny pearls and crystals on Esther, and glittering chiffon glazing Annette with stardust.

Mona Lisa was the finale piece of the collection. Fit for a queen ruling over seven kingdoms, Mona Lisa took our breath away with opulent dark lace ending in a low back, and dramatically voluptuous ruffles cascading down a cathedral train. Also available in ivory and red, Mona Lisa’s rich textures and velvety sheen would create a grand entrance for any bride.
