Nadia Manjarrez Fall 2022 Bridal Collection
Nadia Manjarrez debuts her bridal label with a collection of versatile, modular design wedding gowns to take brides from day to night.
Mexican designer Nadia Manjarrez launches her eponymous bridal label with her collection Aurora, inspired by the Japanese art of Kintsugi, repairing porcelain with precious metals to create beauty out of broken pieces.
Believing that a wedding gown should have multiple purposes and not just serve a bride for one night, Nadia Manjarrez focuses on versatility and functionality. The brand concept stems from transforming silhouettes with modular designs such as detachable trains, skirts, sleeves, and chiffon overlays, so brides can change up their looks to transition from ceremony to reception or after party.
Her debut collection, Aurora, features ethereal chiffon detachable layers, French laces, silk, and beaded appliqués alongside heavier Italian crepes and crystal fringe edges. Referencing her inspiration Kintsugi, Nadia used irregular cuts, metallic fabrics, and touches of silver throughout the pieces.Esther Esther
