Marvelous Mode: Monique Lhuillier Spring ’13 RTW

Hello Fashionistas,
Presiona Aquí Para Español!

The name Monique Lhuillier evokes flawless, refined, elegant and gorgeous bridal wear, and with plenty of reasons. Her love for feminine aesthetics, delicate silhouettes, exquisite beading and interesting prints, fast-tracked her to the top of the fashion pyramid. Since the establishment of her company, Lhuillier, became a favorite among celebrities, jet-setters, and entrepreneurs that sought to impress on the red carpet or wow while walking down the aisle.


Monique Lhuillier originally started her collections in the world of Bridal wear. Despite how competitive that particular business is, Lhuillier, won over the hearts of editors and brides-to-be who fell for the designs and interesting bead work. The Spring 2013 Ready-To-Wear collection was one for the books. Not only were the gowns showstoppers, filled with detailed beading and extraordinary craftsmanship, but the prints chosen were extremely eye catching. Blues and neutrals, in shapes of fish scales and coral reefs, put a fresh twist into the timeless styles.


What do you think about Monique Lhuillier’s Spring RTW Collection? Did the prints inspire you? Remember: It’s Always A Matter of Class Not Cash!

Hola Fashionistas,

El nombre Monique Lhuillier evoca diseños impecables, refinados, elegantes y hermosos vestidos de novia. El amor por la estética femenina, delicadas siluetas, exquisito trabajo en ppedrería y estampados interesantes, la han llevado rápidamente al tope de la pirámide de la moda. Desde el establecimiento de su compañía, Lhuillier, se convirtió en favorita de los jet-setters, celebridades y empresarios que buscan impresionar en la alfombra roja o deslumbrar en su boda.


Monique Lhuillier originalmente comenzó sus colecciones en el mundo de los vestidos de novia, a pesar de ser un negocio tan competitivo, logró ganarse los corazones de los editores de moda y novias quienes se enamoraron de sus diseños y delicados adornos en cuentas y mostacillas. La colección Primavera 2013 Pret-a-Porter no sólo tuvo una gran demostración de vestidos hechos con excelente artesanía y detallada pedrería, sino también con estampados originales y colores llamativos. Las tonalidades azules y neutras son resultado de la inspiración marina que tuvo Lhuillier para esta colección, y para añadirle un tono fresco y más moderno, los diseños gráficos tienen forma de escamas de pescado y los colores de los corales marinos.
