For the Morilee by Madeline Gardner spring 2018 collection, the concept behind the gowns is reflections of all kinds. “It’s the spark of radiance that shines off the crystal beading, the glisten in the eyes of the bride, it is the beauty of life’s images that touch us and that we see in those around us,” says Gardner. “What I see in these reflections bring about the special details that make my gowns come alive!” This theme is apparent in the delicate beading and craft work that is sewn onto each dress. The collection offers a selection of dramatic ballgowns and curve-hugging mermaid skirts to flatter any bride who dreams of a breathtaking entrance on her big day. Embellishments and beading featured prominently in throughout the line, with sweetheart bodices and cap sleeves tastefully sprinkled with crystal and beads. Gardner did not shy away from bold silhouettes, with many gowns featuring tiered skirts and princess-worthy layers of chiffon.
