Good morning everyone! I hope you’ve had a beautiful, wonderful and romantic weekend. Today I have some wedding dress ideas for you – these stunning dresses arrived via email over the weekend and I am smitten! As many of you know (if you follow English Wedding Blog on facebook) I’m now based in the beautiful English Lake District. Which is a wonderful thing – or it will be when I get my broadband! – but it’s too far for me to travel to the big bridal shows and events in That London. I missed the White Gallery show which others adored – but I’m very pleased that this little bit of it is now gracing my wedding blog. I’ll hand over to Victoria Kyriakides to tell you more about her collection!
Wedding dress collection for 2013: Victoria Kyriakides
Victoria Kyriakides is expanding her labels’ international horizons starting from the London market. The designer was chosen to participate in London’s most high end bridal catwalk show, White Gallery this May 2012(20-22nd), showcasing her Grecian chic 2013 collection.
Using her trademark minimal geometric Grecian aesthetics, she managed to make a difference and steal the limelight by becoming a press favorite of the international designers category. Fashion Editors from Vogue, Martha Stewart ?agazine, Brides UK Magazine, You & your Wedding Magazine, Perfect Wedding, White Magazine Milan, Elle London, Conde Nast Publications and more came to see the collection.
The designer dares to bring down the stereotype puffy meringue style bride, by redefining organza while sculpting the fabrics onto the body, forming the shapes in such a way to complement the body and follow every motion. Dynamic style and femininity join handmade French Chantilly lace and unique Macramé designs, into inspirational creations adorning silk in its every version.
Greek haute couture managed to stand out thanks to a subversive bridal catwalk show. The whole concept became complete with the amazing headpieces inspired by the designer and brought to life by artist/hat-maker Malena Maxla – while the jewelry was created by Naya Ferentinoy.
