Bisou’s fashionistas are in New York City this week as the top designer’s present their collections for Spring 2016! Up early, the day started with Romona Keveza. And what a morning?! Held at her new penthouse showroom at Rockefeller Center, Romona presented a romantic vision for both her Couture and Legends collections.
True to form, the Couture collection was defined by Romona’s signature fit, exquisite fabrics, and dramatic silhouettes (including the most incredible train we’ve ever seen!). Brides who believe themselves to be the next fashion icon and wish to make a statement with their gown, will have plenty to choose from this season!
Inspired by photographs and illustrations of NYC’s secret rooftop gardens, the Spring 2016 Couture collection was a bloom with floral details! We loved that Romona dared brides this season to embrace not only colour, but pattern! Floral motifs cascaded across billowing ballgowns, while waistlines were accented by whimsical, 3D brooches by the one and only Maria Elena.
While the unexpected pop of colour made us swoon, we were most excited to see Romona seize upon the trend-of-all-trends: the low back. This look has taken the bridal world by storm and is our number one request from brides. With Romona, finally, brides can have this daring look without having to sacrifice fit or structure!
After all that drama, came the sweet, gentle romance of the Legends collection. Marked by Romona’s signature fit, classic silhouettes, and timeless fabrics, this was bridal elegance at its very best!
This season, it felt as though the Legends collection offered greater breadth. Romona presented a myriad of shapes and silhouettes- from sleek and sexy sheaths, to asset flaunting fit-to-flares, tapered trumpets, and frothy, ballerina-like ballgowns! Whether a bride wishes to emulate Veronica Lake, Audrey Hepburn, or Jacki O., all the classic looks are there!
Also apparent in the Legends collection, was Romona’s embrace of the low and open back trend. At Romona’s opening price-point, we were pleasantly surprised to see such a detail! In fact, the entire collection was spotted by couture details!! We know our brides will love the fact that they can get a bit of the luxe look at the the Legends price-point!
