We promised to post our favorite bridal 2013 collections. One of our favorite bridal couture designers is Monique Lhuillier. Monique is know for her modern, feminine and glamourous wedding gowns. This year Monique presented her “dream-like” collection. Models floated down the runway wearing layers of delicate tulle, lace and intricate embroidery. We were pleased to see sleeves on some of the gowns. Not only does it suit our culture in the Middle East but it is also a nice change from the common strapless gown. Monique’s collection also showed the overskirt. She discussed the trends in her collection in an interview with HuffPost Weddings: “Sleeves are very strong in my eyes, long sleeves with a column silhouette. I also think dresses with a lot of draping in lace are another strong silhouette. And I think the overskirt is going to be a very popular accessory. Girls love to transform their gowns, so this is just having two looks in one night. All of the overskirts [on my dresses] come off, so you can have two looks.” Last but certainly not the least, Monique showed shoes for the first time, something we can’t wait to see more of! Enough said.. now enjoy her collection.
