More about these Collections?
Fusing timeless silhouettes with alluring details, Maggie Sottero’s Aracella collection whispers modern femininity…. The perfect fit for the classic Bride.
It charms the modern girl and captivates the traditional bride alike with a range of alluring and romantic pieces – picture princess ball gowns adorned with glittering Swarovski crystal bodices and lighter-than-air tulle. Elegant sheath gowns decorated with decadent beading also make an appearance, while captivating A-line silhouettes are accented with soft skirts and bodices sprinkled with opulent embellishments. Illusion lace paired with sexy backlines and plunging necklines add a touch of drama to an otherwise demure gown. But, our favorite feature is the range of sleeves in this collection – from pretty cap-sleeves to cold shoulder sleeves and couture, short-sleeves. Soft colors continue this year as a favored trend so Maggie Sottero brings us beautiful dresses ranging from creamy blush to soft gold and sparkling champagne.
For 2016 Sottero and Midgley brings us the epitome of elegant glamour, the Monaco Collection. With blend of refined styling and eye-catching drama, the Monaco Collection celebrates simplicity with a contemporary twist and commands an essence of sophisticated beauty. Classic ball gown silhouettes are reborn; architectural and tailored, expertly draped with luxurious satin and stately Mikado. Provocative sheath gowns hold enchanting details in glittering Swarovksi crystals or innovative lace patterns. Glimpses of skin peek from behind avant-garde details; an illusion side panel, a dramatic, plunging back, or a plummeting neckline. And once more, the sleeves range from full-length poet sleeves to dainty cap-sleeves. Popular illusion tanks are mixed with a newtrend, spaghetti straps. Colors seen are on the opulent side with shades of ivory, gold and glimmering champagne.
