Most wedding dress designers will attest to the weeks and months of blood, sweat and tears that go into the creation of a new collection. But, the other truth is that these crazy, fanatical weeks are also threaded with moments of magic and mystery – those illusive elements so much a part of every creative endeavour. And it’s that enigma that has inspired the Mystique Collection by Elbeth Gillis.
This bridal collection is lavish with mystery and allure. Wedding dress bodices tempt and entice; shoulders and backs are laid bare. Illusion laces abound. And in this collection of couture designs, they’re in a glorious assortment of exotic designs and floral patterns.
The straps on these bridal gowns are so delicate they seem suspended. And the sheer glamour and sparkle of the bead work is breathtaking. Necklines are often deep, as are backs, and with a variety that will give every bride a choice. Gentle, flowing mermaid skirts abound, with embroidered tulle overlays that add a further dimension of mystery.
