I’m going to end my NY Bridal week coverage with the glamour of Pamella Roland. Sprawling, romantic silhouettes and trumpet shaped skirts were the preferred look of this penthouse presentation.
The designer worked her magic with fabric manipulation and embroidery. I loved the more fashion forward use mixing irregular large crystals and jewels to encrust necklines and cuffs onto a very delicate lace dress. This pattern was then interpreted with matte pearl sequins also cut irregularly and encrusted with stones and beads.
Metallic stud embellishment was a big trend in streetwear. Pamella Roland reinterpreted that trend into elegant bridal wear by creating spikes of crystal rondelles on top of long bugle beads and clustering different sized pearls to create the studded effect concentrated around the shoulder.
The final effect was an edgier nuptial look perfect for brides who prefer to mix street style into their ultra-glam wedding day.
Almost a pre-requisite for showing at NY Bridal week, Pamella Roland too had her Frozen-inspired “Elsa” dress. There was a beautiful pale blue gown worn by, (surprise surprise) a blonde model with her hair pulled back. The dress had sheer cap sleeved shoulders and was embroidered with crystal beaded vines that looked like cracked ice. The pale sequin embroidery also looked like flakes of frost and snow on the body, culminating into long sheer godet panels at the skirt.
Well there you have it. I didn’t cover a lot of bridal shows this time around, but I think I spotlighted some of the best. Down the aisle or on the runway, don’t you love see a swirl of tulle?Photos by Mariana Leung
