BERTA bridal was one of the first designers I fell in love with, and hence started an entire blog dedicated to wedding dresses! So accordingly, I have very high expectations for their collections. While I want to see the low neck plunges they’re renowned for, I also want an element of surprise – a a twist on traditional in the most exciting, innovative yet sensual way. And as usual, BERTA delivered.
More grand than ever before, the new BERTA collection is a regal masterpiece that is unlike anything you had ever seen in bridal fashion before. With the clear aim of standing out, and maintaining her creations’ uniqueness in this ever-changing bridal scene, BERTA went further than ever before, and have created an incredibly sophisticated and avant-garde collection.
BERTA made use of many new materials and handcrafted beadwork, to achieve completely new styles and patterns. This collection is characterized by the use of new tones of color – lots of nude, champaign and dark ivory. Many of which are combined with silver appliques and embellishments. In order to achieve a timeless regal look, BERTA had combined many new elements in some of her bridal creations, such as beaded boleros, tulle capes, beaded cathedral veils, and detachable dramatic tulle & lace trains.
The inspiration for this collection came mainly from the 18th century in Western Europe. Those days were the aftermath of the French Revolution – a time when women started feeling more comfortable about themselves, and have started wearing more figure emphasizing clothing. Fashion was still regal influenced, but women allowed themselves to start celebrating their femininity and natural beauty more than ever before. BERTA zoomed-in on this magical era, and have drawn lots of inspiration from then. BERTA is very much known for her figure hugging cuts and accentuating silhouettes, and using those styles along with such grand and regal designs have created a match made in heaven.
The complexity of the cuts and the elite craftsmanship are very easily distinguished. By the use of the most talented artisans, BERTA have created a collection in which each and every creation resembles to a custom made design. The variety of the collection, within its inner barriers, is so vast, that many will feel that a certain design was made especially for them. As if BERTA made it especially according to their innermost desirers.
