Fall/Winter 2010 Metallics in Fashion
When it comes to choosing the perfect dress for you, it’s great to broaden your inspiration horizon outside of bridal magazines. Look to the runways for the best in designer fashion and future bridal trends. There are tons of new cuts, fabrics, details, and styles to look to each season – and those that appear on the runway will eventually trickle down to Bridal fashion.
This season’s runways are glimmering with metallic fabrics and feminine details like bows and sparkling sequins. Lady-like elegance inspired by the styles of the 1920’s-50’s are making a huge come back, like that seen at Marc Jacobs. We saw lots of gold and silver, velvet, embellishments, and lavish feathers and furs. The pale pastels and soft neutrals along with the rich textures from this collection are perfect inspiration for romantic Fall and Winter weddings.
The metallic sheen and stitching accents the feminine detailing of the adorable cap sleeves and pleats while adding shine and movement at the bottom. Why not incorporate a pretty print? The subtle floral print adds a touch of whimsy to this simple yet elegant gown.
Marc added a modern touch to vintage styles by using beautiful silk taffeta with a touch of iridescent metallic sheen (very similar to Nicole Miller’s metallic taffeta circa Bridal 07/08). The warm creamy neutrals and soft greys are the perfect Fall/Winter wedding palette. He countered the softness by leaving raw edges on some gowns and added a delicate, more polished look with a big bow on others. These designs would make for lovely, one-of-a-kind bridal gowns.
Looking to set your maid-of-honor apart? She’ll shine in a floor length sequined gown with velvet sash to accent the waist.
Not into a long veil? Opt for a silver or gold headwrap embellished with Swarovski crystals and pearls that works great with a birdcage veil.
Don’t want to overdo it with the shoes? Pair a metallic gown with sophisticated nude heels like these Christian Louboutin’s with chic knot detail.
