Brides, we’re packing our bags and headed to Chicago! This weekend, we’ll be debuting our Fall 2014 Collection at the Chicago Bridal Market. Smitten with the glamour of bygone eras, the Maggie Sottero Fall 2014 collection infuses classic silhouettes with starlet detailing for today’s romantic bride. Decadent beading spills over shoulders, plunges along backs, fuses with lace bodices and weaves intricate patterns of Art-Deco inspired design throughout entire gowns. Provocative illusion lace and tulle gracefully transform necklines, fall into sleeves, adorn sexy low backs, and pair with beading caplets and jackets. Feminine details abound, from delicate veils and sexy boudoir slips to cut-out backs and off-the-shoulder necklines, while pale shades of pink, blush, Champagne and nude offer softer, contemporary alternatives to traditional white.
Inspired by vintage Hollywood, the Sottero and Midgley Fall 2014 collection introduces the modern, sophisticated bride to the opulence of yesteryear. Soft, feminine silhouettes are embellished with dramatic patterns of beaded lace applique, breathtaking vintage jewelry and glamorous jeweled belts. Unabashedly romantic and regal ball gowns showcase gilded lace and elaborate embroidery, as well as unadorned organza, kissed with singular statements of extravagance. Illusion lace, one-shoulder and off-the-shoulder necklines channel Grace Kelly’s movie star-to-royalty styling, while feathery fringe, Art Deco beading and slinky slips reminisce iconic elements of the Gatsby era. Fabrications include satin, organza, lace, tulle, and chiffon; colors range from traditional whites and ivories to shades of pale blush, peach and light gold.
