No 272: the Bow Bodice

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

As John remarked, so many bridal gowns look the same. It's hard to keep them all straight, and with all the ruched bodice trumpet gowns and drop-waisted ball gowns with Art Deco crystal embellishments on the runway last week, it sometimes felt like we were seeing the same gowns from Fall 2009 (except, in many cases, worse. It wasn't such a great group of collections.) That's not to say that a few design trends were completely lacking, and so I thought I would compile them for you, dear readers. So onto the trends! 

"Bow" bodices, with the illusion of a bow created at the bust without an actual bow were making the rounds, especially in the Priscilla of Boston collections. Feminine, sweet and not a touch retro, these designs from Monique Lhuillier, Reverie by Melissa Sweet, Platinum by Priscilla of Boston and Junko Yoshioka (from top to bottom) are perfect for the bride who imagines speeding off in a vintage roadster to the tarmac, her grandmother's pearl studs and a birdcage veil resting atop her Globe-Trotter vanity case.
