Berta bridal spring / summer 2016

We are so excited to share with the spring /summer Berta Bridal 2016 collection! The new Berta collection is incredibly stunning and each wedding gown is literally more breathtaking than the next! I was memmerized by the Berta Bridal wedding dresses when I had the pleasure to admire them during New York Bridal Week. It is such an honor to share with you today their newest 2016 ad campaign that most definitely is… more grand than ever before! The new Berta Bridal collection is a regal masterpiece that is unlike anything you had ever seen in bridal 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. The designer made use of many new materials and handcrafted beadwork, to achieve completely new styles and patterns. This Berta spring / summer bridal 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 creations, such as beaded boleros, tulle capes, beaded cathedral veils, and detachable dramatic tulle and lace trains.

Berta Bridal Spring Summer 2016

“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. The Berta wedding dresses are very much known for their 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 has 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 the designer made it especially according to their innermost desirers…”
