Nadia Manjarrez Fall 2023
The Nadia Manjarrez Fall 2023 collection is inspired by a sunset.
Mexican bridal designer Nadia Manjarrez releases her Fall 2023 collection of modular bridal looks. With the brand’s belief that a wedding gown should serve multiple purposes instead of being worn for a single event, Nadia focuses on versatility in her collections. Known for their concept of modularity, the brand features silhouettes that transform with styling of detachable trains, skirts, sleeves, and overlays, so that brides can remix their looks for different wedding events.
For Nadia Manjarrez’s Fall 2023 collection, Creative Director Nadia drew inspiration from a sunset and its promise of a new dawn and a fresh start. “Sunsets remind us to slow down, reflect on the achievements and successes of the day and prepare for what’s to come,” shares Nadia. “I see this collection as just that. It has been one year since we launched, and Fall 2023 was an opportunity to expand on what is working and savour how far we have come as we continue to grow and understand our customer.”
Inspired by the sorbet colours of a sunset sky as well as the textures found in nature—billowing clouds, delicate flowers, and lightweight feathers—the collection features soft dimension through 3D leaf embroidery and hand appliqué. In line with the brand concept of modular pieces, the Nadia Manjarrez Fall 2023 collection includes removable puff sleeves, skirts, peplums, and oversized bows.
Anabel is a beautifully structured mermaid gown draped in nude tulle, with a removable train and an organza embroidered nude veil.
Paulina is a Spanish filcoupe strapless gown with a seamless bodice, in a large floral motif print. Brides looking to make a fun fashion statement can pair Paulina with exaggerated bow sleeves in the same fabric and transparent centre detail. The Paulina veil is crafted with the same bold floral motifs and features a statement separated blusher edged with florals.
Mayela is a sweetheart gown crafted from matte crepe, with an overbust piece, off-shoulder sleeves, and open-laced back.
Sofia is a multi-tired silk organza gown with translucent off-shoulder straps and a removable skirt that transforms the silhouette into a mini dress ready for dancing.
Rocio is a beautifully draped silk crepe gown with a side slit and a unique stole.
Sarah is a strapless jumbo rose French lace gown with a laced back, scalloped side slits, and train, worn with matching sleeves with covered button detail.
Elsa is a sleek Italian duchesse column gown with a unique bodice and light-as-air floral and feather embroidery and appliqué dancing on the skirt. With the addition of a pleated shawl and long gloves, Elsa transforms a bride into a Bridgerton debunte.
Fe is for the unconventional bride, with its matte crepe sweetheart top with laced back, paired with a pair of sheer, nude pants embroidered with 3D leaves, with a Chantilly lace underlayer.
Natalia is a sleek gown with a crochet lace plunge neckline detail, open laced back, and a fit that flares out into a full skirt featuring crochet lace godets. Brides who want to make an entrance can add on the matching crochet train.
A rather unique look, Evelyn features a crochet strapless bodice and is covered with a reflective nylon organdy to create a translucent necktie and a ruffled skirt.
Carmen is a minimalist gown crafted from recycled Italian taffeta gown with a square neckline, skirt yoke, pintucked skirt, and low back. An adorable removable peplum train with peekaboo handmade silk taffeta wired flowers can be added to the look to create more drama.
The collection’s sunset inspiration culminates quite literally in Iris, a silk organza gown with a sunset ombre skirt. Its halter neckline can be embellished with a 3D silk organza wired flower.
If a sunset symbolises the looking ahead of a new chapter, then we look forward to what’s ahead for Nadia Manjarrez.
