Simple and down to earth, that’s the first lasting impression that I got from Vina, my client and the bride. We first met at Starbucks in Lippo Mall St Moritz and she was very easy to talk with.
During that first meeting, I learned that Vina and her then-fiance- Andrew, had been in a relationship for 10 years. For them to finally step into a new milestone in life and getting married, it was definitely an important keystone to the couple that needed a proper celebration.
We also exchanged ideas and what kind of wedding dress that would really resonate with her personally. She showed me a few references and I could tell that Vina was aiming for a simple and unpretentious design with flowy vibe. At the same time, Vina wanted to have a bit of wow and glamorous effect with a train at around a meter long.
More discussions ensued where we brainstormed for her vision and my recommendation. As a result, I was able to present a convertible wedding dress with 2 different looks. Convertible fashion is a very popular choice nowadays because it has a sense of versatility with a fresh perspective for the wearer. In Vina’s Case, the key item to this convertible wedding gown is in the detachable pieces for the upper bodice.
Vina wore the first look for her church ceremony, which was a tube wedding dress with heart shape neckline with a lace cape embroidered with crystal beads around the neck area. This is a smart choice because the bride had more ease during the morning to afternoon ceremony.
For her second look, Vina glammed up by wearing the same tube wedding dress with an additional long sleeves bolero for her evening wedding party. The details on the long sleeves match with the overall look of the wedding dress, thus the seamless flow and complete presentation for the night.
All I can say is about Vina is, what a way to rock her special day! With 2 different looks, she looked fresh and gorgeous at all times. Now that’s the way I’d like all my brides to be remembered by for sure.
