Rose garden was the key motif for Oscar de la Renta's autumn/winter 2017 bridal collection. The designers were inspired by the gardens of Oscar and Annette de la Renta, hence the divine floral embroideries featured on the dresses, capes and veils in this collection. The cascading vine embroidery and three-dimensional appliques are absolutely breath-taking! We think it celebrates all the values the brand has been nurturing since its inception in 1965.
The collection comprises different silhouettes including slim and voluminous shapes, but detachable elements such as sheer tulle overskirts and embroidered capes offer a possibility to easily modify the outfit for the ceremony and reception. Mikado silk, tulle, taffeta, faille, organza and lace fabrics were used to create these stunning wedding dresses. While some of the gowns are adorned with embroideries and embellishments, others will wow you with clean lines, impeccable tailoring and romantic details like oversized bows.
Each look from the collection is exquisite and true to the Oscar de la Renta brand, but two wedding gowns were particularly intriguing. The white strapless high low ballgown with a tulle overlay faturing a gorgeous floral motif took roughly 180 hours to make. The other gown is the richly embroidered long-sleeved coat worn on top of a georgette slip dress which makes a fabulous two-piece – ideal for destination weddings.
Other favourite looks include the ivory strapless sweetheart jasmine guipure gown worn with an ivory pleated tulle overskirt tied with a satin bow, the white strapless faille and organza vine embroidered gown and the ivory strapless silk georgette slim gown with illusion back bustier styled with a white and silver jewel neck trellis embroidered high and low tulle cape.
All the gowns were accessorised with bejewelled satin slippers, a neat chignon and white roses or peony bouquets. These dresses ooze with classic romance. Each of them are perfect for a traditional wedding, but a few looks could also be worn at a less formal event such as a laid back beach ceremony.
