"The gown is special because I named it Shawne after my Executive Vice President who will be wearing the gown for her wedding October 9th, the weekend before bridal market," says designer Anne Barge. "She tried the sample on, and we both knew this was her dress." The dress features a sheer tulle, illusion jewel neckline with a French Chantilly lace bodice lined in cameo Italian silk satin embroidered with handmade silk organza petal and Swarovski rhinestones. For the rest of the collection, that was inspired by styles that would want to make brides fall in love, expct to see French Alencon and Chantilly lace styles, soft tulle and other flowy romantic fabrics like rich Italian silk organza, and intricate fabric integration accompanied with vintage hand beading. —Cari Wolfert
