Ines Di Santo-Couture Bridal Collection Spring/Summer 2016
Press Release – New York Bridal Fashion Week
The Butterfly Effect
Consisting of 29 gowns, collection standouts included an embroidered Alençon sleeveless bodice with a short textured skirt and long train, an elegant ball gown with cascading gold and silver-embroidered tulle, and a sinuous sheath with pearl-adorned cuffs and neckline.Chantilly lace gowns in watercolor shades of blue, champagne and pink were masterfully constructed with airy tulle and satin layers. Sweeping removable overskirts in textures of Guipure and Alençon lace were luminous while sheer panels and intricate embroidery recalled the delicateness of a butterfly’s wings.The season flourished before guests’ eyes in the form of gold leaf lace and pearl seeding reminiscent of cherry blossoms and exotic garden flowers; vine-like motifs unfurled themselves along bodices and full skirts.The show culminated in a show-stopping vision of pale pink in the form of a fitted corset ball gown with hand-crafted silk organza blossoms along the skirt and detachable train.
