Erin Cole has spent 20 years designing gorgeous couture bridal accessories, so her debut line of wedding dresses has been eagerly anticipated. Inspired by her mother’s passion for art and painting, and her grandmother’s sewing and design talents, this was a natural progression for Erin Cole. Each gown is made to embrace the freedom of expression by modern women. Glamorous and sensual, the dresses reflect the complex personalities of the brides who wear them.
Erin Cole keeps to a classic bridal color palette for her first line, creating looks in ivory, vanilla, champagne, and blush hues. Crepe and silk tulle are frequently used, with details made from caviar-beaded Alençon lace. Brides following current trends will love the off-the-shoulder and plunging necklines, as well as the stunning low backs.
