MELINDA LOOI IVORY – VINTAGE VICTORIAN 2015 BRIDAL COLLECTION
The Melinda Looi Ivory 2015 Bridal Collection is inspired by the Victorian era, which has been reinterpreted in a modern way but still holding onto the elegant, elaborate and feministic feel of the time. The aesthetic movement of modern fashion principles have been applied to the traditional Victorian styles that commanded elegance, class and timelessness.“I love vintage and I love Victorian clothing from the 18th century; how the dress fall so beautifully with the right amount of volume. I tried to make a “today” Victorian style which suit the modern ladies,” said the designer.
Architectural cuts to precious fabrics such as English Tulle, French lace, Italian Corded lace, Duchess Satin, Silk Chiffons and champagne colour lining, along with simple frank cuts and oversized dimensions made up the look of the collection. These pieces are encrusted with outbursts of Crystallized Swarovski, fresh water pearls and glass beads; illuminating desired feature points and are done painstakingly by hand to create a truly one-of-a-kind wedding gown.
The imposed vintage spirit is showed in Melinda Looi Ivory’s collection true to form – captured an ancient world of antiquity within a modern and hauntingly beautiful treatment.
