Fashion: Le Grand | Z Wedding D’Sign Autumn/Winter Couture Runway Show 2014

I am really honoured to receive another invitation to be at Le Grand & Z Wedding’s Autumn/Winter 2014 couture runway show! (Check out my post on their Spring/Summer 2014 show) It was not to be missed, on a more glamorous scale, with more bespoke gowns, artisan fabrics, bold and beautiful finishes. Held at CHIJMES, the event was graced by celebrities, suit-donning gentlemen and elegantly-dressed women.

This time, I invited my gorgeous friend Sha, to join me in the celebration and appreciation of bridal couture.

The Le Grand collection

“Heritage”

The new collection by Le Grand saw an intricate fusion between Asian and western influences within our culture. Fitted bodices featuring details such as weaving and beading, joined with subtle peplum and full skirts create a luxurious silhouette for the confident bride. I particularly felt that the gowns had a ‘princess-y feel’ with the use of muted silver brocade and rich vibrant colours, and was brought back to a romanticized time when noble ladies and princesses wore elaborate gowns to balls, in search for their prince-charming.

The weaving and beading was breathtaking as we could see just how detailed it is on the gowns. Techniques such as smocking and sophisticated folding of fabrics add unusual textures to create shadows and depths on bodices for a more modern take.

The Z Wedding Collection

“Nautica”

This collection had fuller, deeper colours reflecting colours that arise from a nautical adventure. Models floating gracefully on a sea of tulle while walking down the aisle invites stories and imagery of irresistible mythical sirens from the sea, drawing in and captivating sailors (‘mortal men’) with their sheer beauty and enchantment. But what can I say, all the ladies that night were mesmerized as well!

Daring layering of tulle and chiffon creates waves that not only flows and swishes as the bride walks, but also grant alternative silhouettes to brides who want something more avant-garde.

Ah, celebrities never seem to age!

Thank you Le Grand and Z Wedding for the VIP invite. It was an enjoyable night, and there’s just something about fashion couture that makes me go all excited and passionate, hyper and light-headed. How about you? :)
