Mira Zwillinger, Israel's leading bridal designer, is known for her elegance and supreme craftsmanship. Her couture bridal gowns, ready-to-wear collections, cocktail dresses and leather jackets demonstrate the undeniable sophistication of tailored clothing and her distinctive eye as a designer.
Her latest bridal collection was a collaboration with her daughter, Lihi, showcased at the Luxury Wedding Show London and exclusively available at Browns Bride.
Their flowing, beautiful and intricate designs had waves of sighs spreading through the crowd as their beautiful dresses made their way down the catwalk.
Mira said: "We were originally inspired [for the bridal collection] by Reflections, which was inspired by the sculptures of a Czech artist Václav Cigler. I took the way his glass sculptures used a play of lights and shadow, the angles they created and the cutting edge of the glass and translated that into dresses."
Working as a mother and daughter duo, the two women are unstoppable in their vision and elegance: "We started working together a month and a half ago," explains Mira, "and we decided to complete the bridal collection and we took Reflections and made it softer, more romantic, using lace and chiffon to produce a new material. We changed the DNA of the fabrics to create something unique and different."
Lihi, who studied design herself commented: "Working with my mother was interesting. We have very similar design styles but we complete each other, we start with one idea and work together to create these beautiful dresses."
Using layers upon layers of chiffon, Mira and Lihi's dresses flow with a soft and natural look. The exquisite beading and diamonds (all Swarovski) are all hand stitched and individually created especially for each gown.
The collection is brought together through beautiful lace, as Lihi explained: "We took the lace material and used it in different ways; used as appliqués in one gown, as the actual fabric for another, using the leaves for another, integrated it into the belt of another. We like taking the fabric and using it in different ways, interpreting it into different gowns."
For us the first mother and daughter collection is a huge success and anxiously await to see the next one!
