For those of you who’ve been down the aisle… or at least thought about it… you might have noticed the amount of ugly dresses out there. Puffy, big, over the top or painfully simple. And the magazines. Gah. To tell the truth, I’ve always been dubious of the whole wedding culture thing.. contrary to popular belief I’m not one of the females born thinking this magic day will make us complete, solve all of our problems as long as we get the perfect princess white dress, I was actually married once… and soon to be a second time (it’s a long/short story, I’ll fill you in soon), and neither times I’ve had any desire to do the traditional wedding thing. I have no desire to do the traditional mom thing either… if any of you are wondering.
While many wedding companies go for the wedding of your dreams/bridezilla crap..some bridal designers are taking a more contemporary approach.
Blushless uses the finest eco-friendly material in not your average bridal designs. Inspired by the film, Wild at Heart the AW09 collection is a combination of naughty, fun and sexy… that way no one will make jokes about wearing white to your own wedding. (Like who are we kidding anyway?)
The designer, Liv Lundelius grew up in an a typical home, daughter of a punk club owner and a bohemian traveler she’s not grown up living the traditional life. After going to fashion school in Berlin she went to work with threeASFOUR in New York, and now she’s back in Berlin integrating avant garde fashion with bridal wear. I really particularly like the sculptural dresses because there is something unexpected about all of them.. mostly I love the airy quality, as seen in the video, the still photos dont’ really do it justice.
