Next week is our Mira Zwillinger Trunk Show (September 5-6) and in preparation/to get you as excited as we are, we wanted to share these photos from her 2014 – 2015 collection. We love the bold and edgy unexpected choices for styling these very beautiful and feminine gowns; instead of seeing them in a traditional bridal style, we’re seeing these chic and feminine gowns styled with a bit of edge. Replace the flowing locks with a short cropped hair cut and a bit of sly ink peeking out from under sheer overlays and swap the chandelier earrings for studs on the upper cartilage. The dresses themselves still feature styles that everyone loves and traditional, flattering cuts made of the most sumptuous fabrics you can imagine.

Designer Mira Zwillinger sites snowflakes as the inspiration for this collection, as no two dresses are exactly alike – remind of all of you. This photo shoot is a pleasant reminder of how a traditional gown can be styled to suit a bride’s personal style.

Whether you decide to style one of these gowns, or whatever gown you pick, with a bit of your own flair and style you’re sure to make it feel like it was made for you. Call and schedule your appointment now to come in and feel these Mira Zwillinger for yourself!

 

 

When it comes to this year’s hottest bridal trends, there’s no question that the statement back tops the list. During Bridal Week in New York earlier this year, several top designers debuted a series of gowns featuring stunning backs. No stranger to jaw-dropping designs with unique statement back options, Berta Bridal has truly mastered the art of designing tastefully daring wedding gowns.

Not only is Berta Bridal known for its statement backs, but also its plunging necklines, which truly help set this collection apart. Brides revel in the fact that these designs make for a grand entrance, as well as an equally swoon-worthy walk down the aisle. Due to the creative use of illusion netting, tulle, intricate beading, and elaborate appliqués, Berta Bridal gowns are not soon forgotten.

Curious as to whether a Berta Bridal gown is the gown for your walk down the aisle? You’re in luck because Chic Parisien is one of the few bridal boutiques in the US that will preview this stunning collection during a special in-store Trunk Show this month. Come see why brides think the statement back is the perfect complement to a plunging V-neck gown, or how a statement back adds intrigue to a simple design in the front. We look forward to seeing you there!

What’s the connection between Monique Lhuillier’s long awaited Spring 2015 collection and famed American artist John Singer Sargent? The ethereal nature of his portraits, which includes the elegant and mysterious Madame X (below), served as the inspiration for the entire collection.

You may recall that we first brought this collection to you during our behind-the-scenes reporting at bridal market in New York City back in April, and now we’re thrilled to finally welcome these stunning gowns in store.

Described as “‘[an] ethereal dream” by Monique Lhuillier herself, the Spring 2015 Collection features tulle, Chantilly lace, intricate beading and embroideries. Silhouettes range from mermaid styles to architectural shapes. The collection also features whimsical pastel options in shades of blush, pistachio, and mist.

For this collection, the designer certainly favored the embroidered tulle gowns in a strapless A-line cut with matching shrugs, as well as timeless strapless styles, replete with tiered tulle and lace appliqué skirt.

This Friday and Saturday, we will host a dedicated Trunk Show to showcase Monique Lhuillier’s complete Spring 2015 Collection. Chic brides are encouraged to reserve an appointment soon, as this will be one of our premier Trunk Shows for 2014.
