Recapping the hottest runway looks from the Columbus Weddings Show last month.
New York Fashion Week 2017 is fully underway! In honor of the fashion event of the season, we’re bringing you five days of posts in a fashion week of our very own. On our final day of Columbus Weddings Fashion Week, we’re looking at 13 styles from Joan’s Bridal Couture. Like one? Give them a call at 614-856-9848 and ask to schedule a fitting.
It’s worth mentioning that anything labeled as “Joan’s Bridal Couture custom design” is just that—Joan specializes in custom, couture work, so those gowns aren’t necessarily available off the rack. But fear not; Joan can whip up the same dress again, or even tweak it to your liking. All you have to do is ask.
We’ll start with the external lines; this tulle fit-and-flare gown—No. F191001 from Jasmine Collection—features ruching and an asymmetrical skirt that starts at the hip. The floral straps are detachable and can be worn as shown or off the shoulder for a romantic look.
Like the gown above, Jasmine Collection’s No. F191004 from is in “new shell pink” and has a ruched bodice for a soft and sweet vibe at first glance. The cascading tulle skirt and ball gown silhouette will make any bride feel like a princess.
The sophisticated Jasmine Couture No. T192002 comes in a fit-and-flare silhouette that gains just a touch of volume just below the hips. The illusion sleeves and back are accented with embroidery lace appliqué and beading, with tuxedo buttons down the length of the back and at the wrist.
Jasmine Couture’s No. T192008 is a vintage-lover’s dream. Airy butterfly sleeves add a unique feature to a timeless design, while the embroidery lace and beading add glamour and drama. This gown is equally suited to a rustic barn wedding or a glamourous art deco event.
Featuring a Venice lace bodice, this organza and tulle ball gown is not for the timid. The No. T192010 from Jasmine Couture has soft, cascading ruffles on the skirt; the perfect complement to the bodice’s intricate lace design. The sweetheart neckline looks standard, but a turn reveals an illusion back that’s anything but.
Our first custom design from Joan’s Bridal Couture is this ivory gown with a black lace overlay. The bottom ivory layer has a mermaid silhouette, while the black overlay adds volume at the waist and hips. Dramatic full sleeves avoid the ’80s bride look thanks to the airy lace and tulle.
Joan takes floral appliqués to the next level with this cape/dress combo. The skirt itself is a simple column silhouette without embellishment, allowing the oversized rosettes on the cape to take center stage.
Another column silhouette from Joan’s custom line takes a totally different feel, thanks to gold sequins and a blush tulle overskirt. With the added volume or without, this is a gown that would look just as stunning on the aisle as it would on the red carpet.
If modesty is a concern—or if you just want a look unlike any other—Joan’s ivory knit gown with a hood detail is a perfect choice. With long sleeves, a modest train and just a hint of embellishment at the wrist and hem, this gown is simple without ever being boring.
Want the long lacey sleeve look while still bearing some skin? The deep V-neck, illusion bodice and sleeves and wide keyhole back in this gown have you covered (strategically, that is). An embellished belt adds some sparkle.
Jump on the ombré train with this flouncy one-shoulder gown. Ruffles break up the otherwise sleek lines of this gown, and a lower-cut back helps keep the ensemble from looking too prim.
Not a dress kind of gal? Joan has the pant-skirt combo for you. The front of this taupe piece shows clear pant legs, while an overlay in the back gives the illusion of a skirt, complete with a long, dramatic train. Flowy, cape-style sleeves join to a bejeweled illusion bodice with a deep V-neck and a fully open back.
When a traditional wedding dress just won’t do, there’s this champagne tea-length dress with ivory lace accents. The illusion bodice and high neckline provide a lovely contrast that is somehow simultaneously proper and daring.
