I'm really looking forward to viewing Rina di Montella's new bridal and evening wear collections up close and personal in October, but the lovely Rina provided us with a sneak peek— sketches of her two favorite designs. Rina told me that her new social occasion line will feature gorgeous gowns for mothers of the bride and groom, and wedding guests in her favorite shades like iridescent purples, mauves, and aquas.
As for her bridal line, the new collection will contain about 30 looks. Rina's favorite, shown here, is adorned with reembroidered French lace and a touch of sparkle. "It's very simple, yet very different," Rina says. "I could see this dress being really fresh at a garden or ballroom wedding." Check out Rina's website to see more of her current collection. We'll bring you photos of the new collection as soon as it hits the bridal fashion runways!—Kim Forrest
