Floral, fresh, and flirty looks ruled the runway at Ines Di Santo’s latest bridal presentation. Tailor-made for the springtime bride, Di Santo turned to soft layering and botanical detailing to encapsulate the season’s blissful aura. Gowns fashioned in light fabrics emphasized the soft fluidity and movement of each design, while exuding an unmistakable air of femininity and romance.
Di Santo didn’t shy away from exploring the relationship between textures, juxtaposing three-dimensional embellishments and ruffled accents against sleek, sheer textiles. Bringing to life this dynamic look was a sophisticated and versatile plunging V-neck gown, complete with a re-embroidered applique bodice and a floral-adorned long sleeve peplum coat.
Illusion necklines and backs paired exquisitely with intricate embroidery and beading that ranged from playful floral and petal patterns to bolder Art Deco- and Baroque-inspired designs. The collection even featured contemporary pieces perfect for the fashion-forward bride, including a sweetheart illusion neckline Palazzo romper with an encrusted bodice, detachable bell sleeves, and an embroidered illusion bolero. Asymmetrical hemlines, tiered skirts, and larger-than-life ball gowns also reflected the collection’s springtime theme, evoking the impression of blossoming flowers and lush gardens. Di Santo’s closing number, aptly named “Bloom,” was the collection’s most stunning ode to spring, and featured a floral print ball gown with an asymmetrical illusion back and neckline.
