As we do each season, Brides asked designers showing Fall 2013 collections to grant us a sketched sneak peek at the gowns soon to hit New York runways. (Afterward, it's fun to compare the sketches to the real-life gowns they become.) Here, Maggie Sottero's newest collection turns inward to draw inspiration from the global Maggie bride:
Describe your collection in a word:
What is unique about this sketch in particular?
This gown typifies the modern bride's quest for yester-year romance in a fashion-forward statement: The body-hugging silhouette of vintage lace releasing into the voluminous skirt with delicate scalloped edging; the lavender ribbon at the waist adorned with a Swarovski crystal brooch; and the illusion lace neckline with hint of a sleeve in the detachable jacket, providing an alternative strapless style for the reception.
Check back daily to see more sneak peek sketches from our favorite bridal fashion designers, and browse more of our favorite looks from last season's Bridal Fashion Week.
