 Were you obsessed with jewel box ballerinas as a child like I was? I'm so happy that Monique Lhuillier’s bridal collection for 2015 shows that she loved them as much as I did. 

Her latest collection of wedding dresses was inspired by ballet dancers and the delights of an open jewelry box.  The featured model on the runway was Alvin Ailey dancer Anne O'Dell.   The gowns were offered a range of off-white pastels in additional ivory and white.  Intricate lace was paired with trumpeted silhouettes or layers of tulle in elaborate full skirts were like the dresses I fantasized about as a clumsy ballet student in first grade.

Monique Lhuillier's shoes collection was also highlighted on catwalk.  The shoes were named after famous characters from classic ballet productions, like "Odile", "Odette" and "Belle".

While her main collection at NY Fashion Week often has more forward looks, her bridal group is unapologetically romantic. Why shouldn’t it? Your wedding day is a celebration of love.  Your Monique Lhuillier wedding dress should be a treasure.
