Whimsical details surprise and delight in Francesca Miranda's fall 2016 collection, creating entirely unique designs featuring a range of textures and patterns. Fringe, pearls, crystals, and gemstones place these gowns firmly among playful brides who desire a fun, modern look. Classic silhouettes allow the clever details to remain appropriate for formal, traditional celebrations.

A polka dot motif carries through three gowns: "Alma," a strapless ball gown, "Julia," a short sheath with a lace front and polka dot back, and "Penelope," an embroidered romper topped with a long organza polka dot skirt. Fringe gives a 1920s flapper feel to "Agata," a long-sleeved gown with two rows of fringe below the hips, and "Luisa," a short dress covered entirely with fringe. For pretty floral elements, look to "Sol," a fit-and-flare dress covered with a sheer overlay of floral-embroidered tulle. "Celeste" features a ball gown silhouette and sheer bodice, both adorned with vine and flower appliqués, similar to the decoration on the striped "Fernanda." Finally, pearls bring dimension and texture to the well-named "Perla," a slender sheath that can be worn with a pearl-encrusted cape.
