Though many designers this season showed styles with sheer elements and carefully placed embroideries, UK designer Caroline Castigliano has reverted back to the classic, more covered looks for her latest collection, titled "Celebrating Romance." The 2018 bridal collection showcases timeless designs with modern elements, such as pockets, low backs, and flounce sleeves. "The inspiration for 'Celebrating Romance' was ultra-feminine gowns – very fluid. I wanted to create gowns that feel light and airy but create shape and power. The collection needed to be sensual and playful, yet suggestive," shares Castigliano.
Boho brides will love "Ursula," a lace gown with a V-neck and high slit, and "I Do" a high-neck illusion gown with cut-out shoulders and scalloped sleeves. Women hosting nuptials in the city will adore "Manhattan," an off-the-shoulder dress with a collar-like neckline, as well as "Ascot," a scoop-neck bridal gown with an A-line skirt. A few styles, including "Love Story" and "Burgundy," also feature pockets, which will be appreciated by brides who love styles that are beautiful and convenient.
