Henry Dishes on 2012′s Dress Trends
Here at Henry Roth, we pride ourselves with being on-trend and appealing to all brides.
When it comes to weddings, one thing is timeless–wedding dresses are typically a variation on white. However, you only have to look through your parents’ generation’s wedding pictures to know that bridal gowns are as much about trends as any other part of fashion. And this year, we are most inspired by the classic and elegant gown worn by Catherine Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge last April, which was a huge departure from the dress worn 30 years earlier by her husband’s mother, Lady Diana Spencer.
So, without further adieu, what can we look to this year?
Lace, whether it is chantilly, Alencon, Duchesse Guipure, or ribbon, lace is a traditional bridal fabric that we are looking to use in new and exciting ways. And worn, a la Kate, you capture one of the season’s biggest bridal trends–lace sleeves. Our Darcy gown is all about the Alencon lace in which it is constructed.
Illusion-style necklines. This is where a sheer, delicate, and often embellished layer of fabric veils skin that would otherwise be exposed. Our take? Kara.
Color, is beginning to make an appearance in bridal gowns and, indeed blush gowns are a budding trend for 2012. But while many brides who look to color will implement subdued colors into their gown, there are others who opt for rich and vibrant hues. To bring color to your gown, you can go all out or look to incorporate it in accents on sashes, bows, embroidery, hems, necklines or beading. Love this look? Take a look at Kerri (which also, incidentally, incorporates another big trend–two-tiered skirts.)
Modern silhouettes with a nod to vintage. Our signature look is “future vintage” so take a look through our collection and you will be perfectly on trend with any gown you choose!
Whichever look you choose, one thing’s for certain, you are bound to rock your frock.
Until next time,
