The Cameron Blake collection is created by acclaimed Puerto Rican designer Ivonne Dome, a graduate of New York's esteemed Parsons School of Design. Her name has become a byword for luxuriant elegance at affordable prices. Ivonne's inspired collections for Mon Cheri include Montage, Social Occasions and the Enchanting bridal collection. Ivonne is inspired by beautiful things and travels widely in search of inspiration, re-creating the ambiance of Paris and Hong Kong. As she works on her designs she is acutely aware that she is creating gowns that fulfill women's glamorous fantasies, striving to bring such fantasies to life. She is in tune with the needs of mature ladies, creating styles that flatter to perfection, conceal imagined flaws and accentuate each woman's most attractive assets. Cameron Blake dresses are designed in the finest of fabrics in rich jewel color hues, complimenting hair and skin tones. Each silhouette is a work of art, with the designs offering an exquisite fit, adorned with carefully chosen embellishments.
Ivonne's designs are alluring yet modest, as befitting the more mature woman. Whether a woman is looking for the perfect gown for her daughter's wedding or a dress for an elegant soiree, a glamorous party, a romantic anniversary, a night at the opera or ballet, the Cameron Blake collection has the sought after dress to add the red carpet look to each special occasion. As the Cameron Blake woman stands proudly by her daughter at her wedding she presents a role model of elegance that her daughter will seek to emulate in style as she in turn matures. The image of timeless beauty she presents is one her own daughter will aspire to.
Full-length evening gowns finishing in graceful sweep trains comprise the majority of designs in the Cameron Blake collection, but Ivonne does introduce tea-length and knee-length dresses, in addition to pants suits, perfect for less formal occasions or offering an elegant transition from day to evening. Many of the full-length dresses are complemented with matching shawls, boleros or jackets, adding a graceful touch to the shoulders and a warm option for the cooler evenings. The addition of jackets once again offers an elegant transition from day to evening and a lovely excuse for a woman's partner to express a chivalrous gesture as he gallantly helps her into it at the end of the evening.
Ivonne Dome seeks out only the finest fabrics to bring her designs to life. Cameron Blake dresses are created in figure accentuating stretch mesh, stretch crepe and stretch lace, floaty chiffons and tulle, sleek Mikado, novelty crepe, slinky sequin, luscious lace, silk burnout, figure hugging jersey and hand beaded jersey. Fabrics are sourced from the across the globe, ensuring a cosmopolitan flair coupled with chic sophistication. A woman can luxuriate in the fabulous feel of fine fabric while radiating an image of insouciant charm. The whisper of a sweep train flowing from a full-length draped A-line skirt styled in stretch crepe will turn heads as an entrance is made, and sheer chiffon sleeves add billowing whimsy to a sleekly fitted gown.
Color is all important in a woman’s selection of her special gown and the Cameron Blake collection introduces dresses in a choice of two, three or four appealing colors. Fall collections are rich in deep jewel color hues, while spring collections add pastels and vibrancy. Evocative colors are chosen to compliment skin tones and to create a lasting impression. Mothers of the bride can select shades which stand out against or complement the bridesmaid dresses, choosing a color hue that will appear timeless in the wedding album. Single tone colors are the hallmark of Cameron Blake, less fussy and more quietly elegant than patterns. The color palette ranges from black, purple, navy blue and royal blue, running through stone, spice and smoke to silver. The color spectrum includes cappuccino, champagne, charcoal, ivory, pewter, mink and taupe. There are rich shades such as indigo, wine and aubergine; soft oyster pink stands coyly beside deep coral and fuchsia, bold turquoise and sage. Color can evoke a mood and make a woman appear sultry, sophisticated or sweet. A Cameron Blake woman has the maturity to know which color works to her advantage.
A good fit is essential to imbuing a woman with inner confidence. Each Cameron Blake strapless dress is available with removable straps for that extra confidence boost, with the addition of shawls adding a playful element. Selecting the right silhouette for body shape is as essential as a good fit and Ivonne perfectly crafts modern silhouettes that are combined with an exquisite fit. Many of the gowns are fitted, enhancing the appeal of an hour glass or slim figure. Silhouettes available in the Cameron Blake collection include fitted, slim fitting A-lines, fit and flares that fit snugly through the hips before flaring fancifully, sophisticated trumpets and mermaids. The latter styles offer dropped waistlines, with asymmetrical waistlines particularly flattering for concealing self-conscious stomach areas.
Many more mature women also feel less than confident about their upper arms and many of the dresses offer the ideal concealment of three-quarter length or long sleeves. Illusion and sheer sleeves offer a tempting compromise and may be embellished or finished with eyelash trim. Boleros and jackets are tastefully designed and offer an extra element of concealment for those conscious of their arms. Each jacket is completed to the same high standard as the gown. Women with the natural confidence to flaunt their shoulders and toned arms will discover flattering strapless, sleeveless and off-the-shoulder gowns.
The array of magnificent styles available in the Cameron Blake collection is endlessly tempting. Fitted sweetheart bodices are overlaid with lace with hand beading, creating illusion bateau, Sabrina, scoop and V-necklines. Illusion necklines fit the requirement of modest allurement, in keeping with the desire for a discreet image that the more mature woman often wishes to convey. Embellishments are tastefully opulent, comprising crystal hand beading, embroidered lace and ribbon appliques, glitter print and hand beaded shoulders. Beaded appliques accentuate asymmetrical overlays on side gathered skirts and waistlines are cinched with glittering hand beading. Long fitted skirts feature enticing mid-thigh slits and soft A-line skirts are regally draped with center front gathers. Pleated, ruched and surplice bodices exude an enviable cut and style. Fine attention is paid to the back of each gown, ensuring a work of art from each angle. There are upper illusion backs, soft cowls, semi-open and deep V-backs. Full backs offer keyhole features and attached capelets swing freely.
Although Cameron Blake gowns are designed for the mature woman they are exquisitely appealing to women of all generations that appreciate chic elegance, a perfect fit and sophistication. Madame Bridal is proud to be an authorized retailer of this divine Mon Cheri collection, offering a touch of debonair, high-class luxury for special occasion evenings and mothers attending their daughter's wedding.
