After the gorgeous Duchess Kate strolled up the aisle in her exquisite lace dress in April, there’s no doubt that lace and sleeves will continue to be in vogue for 2012.
For those of you who love the trend but are looking for something a little more fashion forward, Elizabeth Fillmore’s Spring 2012 collection could be just what you’re looking for.
Her woodland forest collection brings together the elegance of vintage lace with a contemporary twist.
One way to immediately bring a more modern feel is to opt for a short lace dress and I think Belle, with its french embroidered lace sleeves, absolutely nails the look! While short wedding dresses aren’t for everyone, they certainly make a statement, with the added bonus of possibly being able to wear the dress again in the future!
If full length is a must then Milla with it’s Victorian inspired capelet gives you two looks in one. Wear the stylish cover up for the ceremony then show off those lovely arms for the rest of the day. A perfect compromise if you like the idea of sleeves but don’t want to commit fully to the style.
Sandrine and Paloma also work the lace look with their own unique take on the trend.
I particularly adore the directional headpiece line by Ksenia Golub. It’s refreshing to see a new approach to bridal headpieces and I love that she uses avante garde elements without sacrificing the romance.
Be sure to check out the rest of the collection at Elizabeth Fillmore Bridal. If you think one of these lovelies could be the one, the collection is available at Blush Boutique, Belfast, and Browns, London.
