What colour suits you best and should you get out of the palette you have used for the last ten years for your daughter’s wedding? Depending on the location and whether you love the bold cut of a couture design, a sunflower yellow or sumptuous purple silk Linea Rafaelli dress might be exactly what you are looking for, but you may be thinking ‘wow! I would love to wear a dress in that colour, but I’m not sure…’ A wedding is a day of celebration and our Condici mother of the bride dresses come in vivid blues, gorgeous reds and stunning purples that fit the happy wedding vibe perfectly. Adding a matching colour-rich jacket to Condici and Ann Balon outfits, or to a dress from the Paule Vasseur collection is it is an elegant way to keep warm in the cool of a church and can be removed in the heat of a reception. On the opposite end of the scale, pastel shades wouldn’t be an immediate choice for those who prefer bright colours from their special occasion wear. But the subtle shades available from a Coterie, or Gina Bacconi dress will bring out the sophisticated dreamy element of your nature.
As we shake off the chilly shackles of winter, minds naturally turn to balmy British summer evenings and sun soaked holidays with deep blue skies and cocktail parties. You may already have an evening in mind, but in the relaxed atmosphere of an al fresco summer it’s always best to have a dress or two carefully packed away in tissue paper, ready for an impromptu party.
For those who want a splash of vibrant colour matched with incredible couture craftsmanship, evening wear from the Linea Raffaelli collection is bound to dazzle and delight in equal measures. Matching a free flowing summer spirit are the dreamy Gina Bacconi creations. A contemporary dress with fluid lines makes them ideal all occasion wear, garden parties and romantic moonlit walks along promenades. A party that requires a more formal dress is well served by the Paule Vasseur collection. Excellent cut, the use of Venetian glass buttons, and a design influenced by period French fabric design, gives the wearer a refined, structured dress.
So the choice is yours: a luxurious Linea Raffaelli dress that is very feminine with a huge amount of glamour; the contemporary dreaminess of a Gina Bacconi dress; or the formal structure from the Paule Vasseur collection.
