Today I am am excited to spotlight on the feminine & ethereal bespoke bridalwear of Lorie x and her gorgeous new Desire Kissed collection.
Inspired by the notion of following your heart wherever it may take you and being rewarded for doing so, prints feature lotus flowers & waterlilies, sunsets, Thai fishing boats, coconut candles and even elephants.
Printed flowing silk organza, chiffon and twill skirts are teamed with structured jacquard, dupion and duchess satin bodices with lace details in warm golden tones to create delicate, romantic pieces with a taste of rich colour and adventure.
Six looks with new shapes of gowns, separates and a veil make up the range.
The prints are all made from photographs or drawings designer Laura took or developed during a trip to Thailand last year.
She fell in love with the beauty of the place and the ideas of living in the moment and having a little faith it will take you in the right direction; where you will be blessed with your destiny.
As life is an adventure, so too is love.
Lotus flowers make their way through murky waters breaking the surface each morning beautiful and perfectly clean – just as relationships strengthen and become stronger as time goes by and obstacles are overcome leaving something pure and true.
The sunsets over the sea and candles represent light coming into your life and evoke a feeling of hope and awakening; the fluidity of life and being willing to embark on the adventure.
It doesn’t matter where you go but when you feel something for even a moment it lasts forever – nothing can wash it away or fade it.
Moving on from the first collection, Desire Kissed is brighter and a little more fun with playful use of colour and flirtatious open backs, yet still keeping the Lorie x signature feminine and ethereal vibe.
For brides who are not afraid to follow their hearts, knowing that they will eventually end up in paradise.
The collection will be able to view for the first time at A Most Curious Wedding Fair in London in March 2016.
Thank you so much to Laura for sharing her latest bespoke bridalwear collection.
These beautiful bold gowns bring something fresh to the bridal world and are the perfect anti bride solution to the lady who wants something very much individual, and unique.
I particularly love the stunning Samsara gown and the Lotus veil which is nothing short of absolutely breathtaking.
