Oscar de la Renta & Vera Wang

About dresses, I can talk so looooong and so muuuuch. About the wedding dresses even more and not only because the search and selection of these dresses is part of my work, which I adore. In the end, the desire for beauty (wedding dresses created by famous couturiers cannot be called otherwise) – seems to me natural! Today in my focus are two stunning brands: Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang. I did not hear applause! Oops, got carried away. These dresses are very different from those brands like Zuhair Murad and Elie Saab that I have already mentioned earlier. Someone may even seem “rustic”. However, in the world of high fashion, their laws and their language, such outfits are called "very modern and “clean”. Very modern and clean. How accurately noticed! They are more practical, like everything else in America, and this is in many respects an advantage. Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wong do not sew couturier lines. Nevertheless, this is not a reason to be upset, and even more, to consider these brands less valuable. It is just “another”, it is a matter of taste, my friends. And, of course, this is the New Generation of Designers. Not convinced? Okay, I will give you another powerful argument – dresses from Vera Wong are very popular
among the bohemian audience. For the dessert, I will sweeten the post with the following information (which will be interesting
and relevant, first of all, for the brides). Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wong often arrange a “Bridal trunk show”. Guess what is this about? This presentation of collections for future brides and a great opportunity to see the dress of your dreams personally “feel” it and make an order. Such shows are held wherever these brands are represented, and their schedule can be found on
the corresponding sites. And finally, if flying across the ocean for a wedding dress seems to be too “expensive” pleasure, just remember – the nearest boutiques Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wong are in London (by the way, there is none in Paris), and Foggy Albion, after all, closer …


Karl Lagerfeld

A couple of paragraphs on how to become the ambassador of Chanel and Muse of Karl
Lagerfeld …
Every time, when Facebook asks me: what am I thinking of? Okay, today, for example, I think
about who you need to be that Karl Lagerfeld would sew you for himself? Perhaps it is necessary
to be a “special” girl, like famous models, Hollywood stars, mega popular fashion bloggers and,
of course, princesses! But! Not only princesses, my friends, not only …
The story of an Austrian girl named Caroline Sieber seems to be incredible and amazing! Judge
for yourself – a simple girl from Vienna, who once went to study in London, suddenly becomes
the Muse of Maestro Lagerfeld! Of course, we shall admit that Caroline has a very delicate taste
and long slender legs, and she is a personal stylist of many celebrities. Sieber is the only girl (not
a model and not an actress !!!), which Chanel wears from head to toe, for advertising purposes,
of course.
In the summer 2013, thanks to Caroline Sieber Vienna became the capital of fashion in Europe
for several days. Can you guess what this is about? Yeah, the fashionista-Austrian girl got
married. A fantastic wedding dress was sewed personally by Karl Lagerfeld, and Western media
branded this event "the most fashionable wedding of the year".
For me Austria is one of the best places for a wedding celebration. There is so much beauty and
chic, it is a real Mecca for grandiose and grand events. Even Karl Lagerfeld, inspired by the
Austrian Empress Sissi, presented the whole collection in Salzburg. The bride's dress on the
podium was presented by the British model and actressCaraDelevingne. However, my friends,
this is though very interesting, but the topic of another publication …


Elie Saab & Zuhair Murad

Girls and dresses…No matter how sexual revolution has changed all of us, all these victories in the sphere of gender equality and the possibility of self-realization, and no matter how natural we look in trousers of rough cut, we all were and remain girls. And girls like dresses! This natural instinct is multiplies many times when we become brides. This is the time when the desire to be most compelling and original literally outshines the mind. However, originality has its price. What wedding dress do you want? From Paris, London, or maybe from Kiev? What about Ellie Saab and Zuhair Murad? They are in the TOP and they are beautiful!
Do not be surprised at this "neighborhood", because these two brands are somewhat similar. Judge for yourselves: both eminent couturiers came from Lebanon, one can be trace in their models national color (embroidery make these dresses dreamily – fabulous). In addition, both designers produce both wedding collections "Ready to wear" (literally – “ready to wear”) and “Couture”. Are you out of breath? I bet you would! To breathe calm looking at such beauty is an art! Where can you see, feel, try on these dresses? In Paris, these brands are represented in the same name wedding salons. But, girls, attention! Get into these holy saints is not so easy! If you want to try fitting, I recommend to arrange a rendez-vous in advance, as salons often practice closed shows for wholesale buyers (they can last several days) and in that case you will just “kiss the door” without touching to the dress of your dreams. Girls, but if you really need it at the specific date, you can always choose the dress in the Internet and order the delivery of the model you like to the hotel where you stay, or any other store of this brand. Here can be nuances, the dress on the screen of the monitor and in the real life can differ (again, in such popular b / w photoshoots, it is difficult to understand the true color and shade of the dress), so keep it in mind. But let’s think perfectly, so, you are on fitting in the salon, the dress from the collection “Ready to wear” suits you, what is waiting for you next? And here all the fun begins. You will be accepted as a queen, treated with a glass of champagne (we are in France!), your measurements will be taken and the process of creating your dream dress will begin. The next visit to the capital of fashion will be crowned with a final fit, which may take 3-4 days. And voila! But I must warn you, if you want to make even minor "edits" to the dress created by your standards … then, excuse me, STOP – DO NOT! Speaking precisely, you can, but be ready that in this case you will automatically remove from the category of the dress “Ready to wear” to “Couture”, which is a completely different story, and, of course, other prices. In the collections of Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad, as a rule, there are up to three dozen models and it is important to remember that if your taste is very exact (for example, you want a white fluffy dress with a long sleeve), you will have to choose, in fact, among three dresses . Like this)
Lovely girls, if the thirst for beauty and uniqueness is stronger than all "buts", I recommend you
to order the dress of your dreams at least 3 months before the wedding, this is ideal. Otherwise,
you risk paying up to 50% of the price for urgency. Well, and at last. No matter how fascinating this adventure seems to be at first sight, the process of finding, selecting, fitting, sewing, fitting the dress from famous fashion designers is a rather tedious process. Therefore, I recommend sharing it with a person close to you – mother – the main adorer and critic in the life of every girl. And tickets for the Paris Fashion Week will add colors and

impressions to your trip. Firstly, the show itself is comparable to a rock concert, and secondly, you agree, to walk along the same streets with celebrities from all over the world – that is a buzz, even without mentioning the fact that at this time it is quite possible to spot Rihanna at a nearby table in the cafe Avenue.


The Best in Men’s Tailoring – Savile Row London

Do not offer me a dress without a name! … or girls – such girls walking in Vienna, where beauty and chic are waiting for you at every step, every time I literally
stop at the window of one of the most beautiful boutiques of the Austrian capital, and I am numb
from what I saw. "Valentino" … and that's it!
Already half a century this Fashion House excites the hearts of admirers and adepts of high style
around the world, so what can we say about future brides who dream to cloth themselves in these
amazing wedding dresses? Pipe, babe, and remember – "Valentino" – this dresses are
masterpieces and only Haut Couture. No wonder, because in these exquisite outfits got married
such famous persons as actress Sophia Loren and Crown Princess of Greece Marie Chantal.
But, my dear girls, in order to walk up the aisle in a dress from "Valentino" does not necessarily
to have “blue blood”, however, it is not necessarily to shine in blue screens. To order "couture"
dress you shall be ready not only financially, but, above all, morally (especially if you did not
have this experience before).
How does this happen?
Let's move to Paris …
Atelier cordially opens its doors before you, listen attentively to your wishes, and here begins
acquaintance with the sketches. They are not designed specifically for you, no! And not because
someone is lazy, the reason for this is different – from you will just feel dizzy the amount of
sketches. Everything possible and impossible is already invented, it is enough just to decide on
the dress of your dreams.
Then you will make the measurements, offer an amazing selection of fabrics and lace, and the
magic will begin , which is called "the process of creating a wedding dress from Valentino."
Ideally, after a few months you will get what you dreamed of and flee from the atelier like a
butterfly. But the capricious brides will have to be nervous, because it is impossible to be sure of
WHAT EXACTLY! you will get in the end. What if you do not like it? And we – we know
something with you happened before: you liked the thing, bought it, came home, wore it and
something wrong … Maybe some of us girls are much easier to try on a ready-made dress and at
least understand, that it suits to us. In the end, not every day we buy wedding dresses.
But we will continue … It's impossible to stop the sewing process. To make some changes on the
course of the action is real, but to refuse the order without losing the full cost of the dress – alas.
In general, all this is clearly not for capricious girls who like to change their decision 100 times a
And finally about the most piquant! Prices for Haut Couture dresses start from 60,000 euros and
above, yes, high fashion is a high flight. But be sure, you pay for the individuality and solely
manual work (seams, embroidery – in no way made by sewing machines!).
P.S we often hear the phrase "… this fashion designer sews posh couture dresses …", but, let's not
confuse the sinner with the righteous! This Haut Couture is only those brands that are exhibited
in Paris and are members of the Association. Do you want to know whose names are on this list?
I will open this veil:
