Canadian designer Christopher Paunil made his debut at Toronto Fashion Week to showcase his latest bridal and special occasion collection and the vibe was modern, chic and subtly sexy. With silhouettes ranging from sleek form-fitting sheaths to structured mermaid gowns and strapless, tulle-skirted designs complete with hi-low hemlines, every style of bride has a dream dress in this lineup.
Paunil’s use of fabrics was particularly gorgeous, blending satin with lace in many of his designs. One particular standout that stole our hearts was a blush pink beauty. This particular strapless gown, with a Chantilly lace bodice and sculpturally-pleated trumpet skirt in silk wool, was a show-stopper and a perfect option for a bride that wants something ultra-feminine yet non-traditional.
