Designer Feature: Ines Di Santo Fall 2016

The Ines Di Santo Fall 2016 collection was all about light and its beautiful qualities. The generous use of lace and sheer fabrics makes this an ultra-feminine collection, for the ultra-modern bride.

Inspired by the soft elegance of light as it shines through layers of tulle, the dresses in the latest Ines Di Santo Fall collection features sheer layers that allow small glimpses of sparkle to shine through, with delicate Chantilly lace woven through the gowns and embroidery flowing over soft sheer folds. Embellishment is refined and feminine.

A closer look reveals the small details rarely found outside of couture, such as the placement of the lace on certain parts of the body which accentuates the feminine form. But the gowns are made for the chic, modern woman with an attitude towards life. What’s important is that the bride should feel like she’s the most beautiful woman in the world on her wedding day and this collection reflects that.
