French Lace and Chiffon – Emily Riggs Bridal Fall and Winter 2015

Every wedding gown is a work of art, but when it comes to the designs of Emily Riggs Bridal, I think it’s safe to say her latest collection is a masterpiece! Each gown is handmade in Portland, Oregon, out of ethereal silk chiffon, crepe satin, and imported French lace. The pale hues and gorgeous texture from  Fall and Winter 2015 collection were inspired by crystals and gemstones!

Arabesque

The pale champagne Arabesque is a stunning marriage of silk and tulle with an ethereal overlay of beaded floral lace. Pearls and seed beads handstitched onto the embroidered flowers add a delicate hint of gold to accent the subtle color in the layered skirt.

Primevere

Inspired by the romantic hue of Morganite, the Primevere dress is a slim, floating gown with a skirt of blush silk tulle and silk georgette.  A three-quarter sleeve bodice of floral French lace is delicately tinted with blush and bronze undertones.

Nightingale

The heavenly dusty blue of the Nightingale gown was inspired by the shifting colors of moonstones, with a flowing train of layered silk and tulle. Three-quarter length sleeves in gossamer lace and a silk satin waist combine for a gorgeously romantic effect.

Seraphina

Pearl silk flows like water in the graceful lines of the Seraphina gown, with a larger print lace and scalloped neckline creating a dramatic bodice.

Valentina

Italian silk taffeta in Onyx gives Valentina a dramatic edge, with a delicate ivory lace top with long sleeves providing a soft counterpoint to the bold black skirt.
