Evoking an aura of elegance and sophistication, the Watters Collection 20 dresses are a collection of stylish dress suits, short and long gowns for the mother of the bride and mother-of-the-groom, as well as other special occasions. Women are assured of presenting an image of confident beauty when they select one of the gorgeous, contemporary designs. C20 dresses offer a full range of silhouettes, from floor-length to cocktail-length hems and long or short dress suits, fashioned in the most luxuriant fabrics. They are fresh, innovative and surprising.
Watters is an acclaimed name, with over thirty years of experience in the bridal industry. The company is associated with dressing young, free-spirited, feminine brides, and has recently expanded into designs for mothers-of-the-bride that mirror this concept by creating designs to flatter mothers of all ages.
The Collection 20 bears all the signature hallmarks of beauty associated with the work of Vatana Watters, lead designer and CEO of Watters. The influence of her favorite designers, Christian Dior, Chanel, Givency and Balenciago, along with her love of vintage fashion, can be appreciated in the unique and luxuriant designs of C20.
Watters creates sophisticated silhouettes, favoring fitted and slim A-line. The cut flatters, conceals where necessary, and accentuates a woman’s attributes. The finest fabrics are sourced to give graceful movement to the dresses. Bella and Chantilly lace are incorporated into the designs, alongside crinkle chiffon, tissue taffeta, luminescent taffeta and faille. Dupioni silk is also molded into classically designed suits and jackets.
The styles stand out for their chic grace and elegance, combining aesthetic appeal with modesty. Three-quarter length sleeves provide cover for the upper arms, an area that mature women often prefer to conceal. Cinched, dropped waistlines accentuate a womanly figure and amazing shawl collars draw attention to V-necklines. Side ruched bodices and asymmetrical wrapped collars attract admiring glances.
Embellishments are discreet and focused; concentrating on lace covered buttons, crystal and pearl buttons, jeweled fabric and crystal brooches, and fine ruffles. Side draping is a signature feature, replicated in bodices, suit jackets and long and knee-length skirts. Lace draws attention to illusion necklines, backs and three-quarter length sleeves. The palette of colors suits every skin tone, rich in the shades of every season. Colors range from white through to black, with wonderful shades of cashmere, slate and silver, roseglow and red, blue harbour, emerald and plum. Single colors are deliberately chosen for that all cohesive look that requires little detraction or adornment beyond a womanís natural grace.
Watters C20 suits and dresses are appropriate for elegant day wear, but transition wonderfully for evening events. They have a timeless appeal that is influenced by the designer’s affinity for vintage styles and her love of the great fashion houses. The mature woman will appreciate the glamour such designs bring, making her comfortably, confidently chic at the ceremony and any other special event.
Madame Bridal has long appreciated the desire of women to discover fashion-forward, age appropriate clothing, and the C20 collection fulfills this desire with exquisite, sophisticated perfection.
