Hey guys! This is Tram from www.phi-style.com, new and proud contributing editor here at Brooklyn Bride. My contribution to Brooklyn Bride will be mainly fashion and style. My first post then, in light of Fashion Week which has been going in full force the past couple months – The Runway Bride.
For the bride who wants to look modern and maybe a little untraditional, runway fashion is a great way to inspire ideas and help you narrow down the look you want to achieve on your wedding day. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with wedding dresses that all look the same – couture fashion can help bring back your personal style. – Tram @ Phi-Style
Elie Saab Spring 2011 RTW (above)
This collection was inspired the 70’s – that’s right, Studio 54, Diana Ross, and Blondie. With their draping and fluid flowing fabric, theses dresses scream disco goddess – in a good way.
Rick Owens Spring 2011 RTW
Rick Owens described his current collection as a transition from abandon to control. These gowns are an incredibly balanced mix of structured, yet soft. For the minimalist bride.
Prabal Gurung Spring 2011 RTW
Prabal Gurung has been quoted as describing his collection to have been inspired by “the intelligent woman. The brain is her most important feature.” The clean silhouettes are perfectly accompanied by intricate detail that doesn’t overwhelm the long, lean lines of the dress. Smart.
Alexander McQueen Fall 2011 RTW
Although this collection was inspired by the Ice Queen, the gowns are anything but frigid. Gorgeous detailing with soft feathers and chiffon to balance the structured bodices. If the rumors of Kate Middleton selecting the House of Alexander McQueen to design her wedding gown are true, she’ll be the best Ice Queen of England ever!
