The cavernous golden walled gallery of the Dream Downtown hotel played host to the much-anticipated show from Inbal Dror.
The Israeli designer showed a cool, red carpet-worthy collection of both bridal and evening wear. Seemingly super-tall models stalked the catwalk (complete with skyscraper heels); their skin shimmered in the light and their quiffed hair was held in place with bejewelled crystal headpieces featuring serpent like tails.
With a predominant colour palette of nude and champagne tones, the gowns featured metallic and gold embroidery and were made from lingerie-like tulle, Chantilly lace and silk organza. It was all about sexy, dramatic silhouettes with each dress appearing more daring than the one before.
Thigh-high splits, deep v-necks, and laser cutouts were softened with layers of tulle and delicate matte sequins. Simple shapes were intricately beaded and embellished with clever details such as an ivory and silver slip dress with one spaghetti strap and one full strap, or the blush organza flowered tulle bolero that became part of the mermaid gown it partnered.
A blush tulle ball gown stood out as sweet and girly, followed shortly by a stunning 3D printed metallic organza body paint slip dress - gorgeous!
There was also a nod to masculine tailoring as bridal gave way to evening wear with a tight fitting tux and floaty printed organza hi-lo skirt together with a body-con crochet suit and fully beaded, double-breasted coat dress.
Bridal and evening wear alike, these gowns are not for the faint-hearted but perfect for the confident, modern bride. Would you wear one?
