The modern mother of the bride or groom can break free of the tradition of tradition of fading into the background and feel free to flaunt her fabulousness in the most sophisticated fashions. Formal evening weddings are an invitation to express oneself in ultimate style and these magnificent dresses are ideally suited to weddings in cathedrals, castles and lavish locations. There are many other social occasions where these upscale dresses deserve to take center stage, such as diplomatic functions, charity fundraisers, galas and balls. This collection is bold and elegant, designed to captivate attention and turn heads. The dresses can be worn with distinctive accessories and set off to perfection with striking jewels.
Ivonne D ensures each gown is uniquely breathtaking and crafted to accentuate the finest attributes of a womanís figure. Each silhouette flows effortlessly to showcase the grace of the wearer, with luxuriant fabrics meticulously selected to suit the silhouette. Fabrics are combined to create layers and textures that feel good to wear and are sculpted exquisitely to portray poise and presence. Self possession is assured at the most suave event as these dresses assure confidence.
Lush and rich fabrics are paired to perfection, with metallic lace flowing over tulle, and taffeta is beautifully overlaid with lace. There are strapless fit and flare gowns with dropped waist bodices styled in beaded lace above lightly gathered tulle skirts. Taffeta trumpet gowns feature beaded lace peplum bodices and fitted Mikado dresses have intricately beaded lace bodices. Mermaid dresses are styled with metallic lace bodices above ravishing Mikado and organza ruffled skirts. Lace is matched with Dupioni silk for a slim line silhouette and sheer, filmy tulle godets add volume to beaded tulle gowns. Silk shantung clings provocatively to the frame or is asymmetrically draped in trumpet style. Light tulle overlays create A-line silhouettes above fitted gowns.
The combination of fabrics is mirrored in the perfect placement of two-tone colors used in some of the gowns, such as aqua and bronze, blue and purple, light mauve and topaz. Gold and black create a popular color combination, as does black over nude, and aqua and gold. Two-tone colors are used to distinguish a bodice from a skirt and in the use of overlays. Mono color dresses reflect the deep hues so suited to evenings and the color palette features such alluring shades as dark raspberry, bronze, smoke, navy blue, light gold, wine, and charcoal. These rich jewel tones are not only ideal for evenings as they are also color appropriate for fall and winter seasons. The collection avoids white as it deemed inappropriate to dress in the same color as the bride, but notions that black are not suited to weddings are somewhat dated.
Mon Cheri full-length dresses are preferred for formal events and evening weddings, and each of Ivonne D's dresses skirts the floor to finish in a sweep train. Matching shawls and bolero jackets are also included with many of the gowns. This is particularly true of the strapless necklines that may require some shoulder coverage during the most formal moments of the event. Boleros feature three-quarter length sleeves and are often embellished with a particular accent that mirrors an adornment on the gown. Sometimes they add a note of contrast such as the use of a scalloped lace bolero matched with a ruched tulle gown.
The adornments used by Ivonne D are of a superlative standard and placed with immaculate care. European lace appliques are hand beaded and adorn drop waist bodices, a sweetheart neckline is kissed with a single ruffled shoulder strap, and oversized bows exhibit bead accented centers. Swarovski crystals are fashioned into shimmering appliques and artistic embroidery is used in an exquisite fashion. Beading and embroidery adorn illusion necklines, cap sleeves and three-quarter sleeves; highlight necklines, and trim waistlines and backs. Lace appliques that adorn bodices are mirrored on border hemlines. Scalloped edged trim accents necklines, sleeves and hemlines, while horsehair adds an extra dimension to some hemlines and trains.
Necklines are such an important feature, crafted to draw attention to neck or the decolletage. The collection showcases plunging V-necklines alongside straight strapless, strapless sweethearts, illusions and portrait necklines. There are scoops, jewels and bateaus, framed with shoulder straps or sleeves. Each strapless gown includes removable straps that will alter the appearance of the gown and can be worn during the wedding ceremony and discarded once the most formal aspect of the service is concluded.
Distinctive accessories can be used to draw further attention to the elegance of a gown. A matching clutch bag or killer heels can complete the outfit and the addition of a stunning piece of jewelry can create another talking point. Necklaces may not be needed to dress up a gown with a high illusion neckline, but if the hair is worn up then the necklace can be substituted with glimmering earrings. Long gloves can be worn just to make a spectacular entrance or kept in place throughout the evening. One of the best accessories a woman can have is the addition of a well dressed man on her arm.
The complete sophistication of these upscale gowns ensures they will look amazing in any circumstance the event calls for. They photograph beautifully at the wedding as the mother of the bride takes pride of place among the family and look equally good for posing on the red carpet. These dresses befit the woman who has a place greeting others in the reception line up or who needs to take her place at the podium to address an audience. When the more formal aspects of an event are finished, these dresses are ideal for swirling round the dance floor or owning the center of the room as one circulates. When a woman wants to make a lasting impression she can be confident her timeless elegance will be remembered.
