One of our favourite New Zealand designers, Kelsey Genna, that over the last few years has made lot of girls happy with pretty handmade dresses from her little factory of love, became all about brides. So from now on, when girls that live on the sweet side of fashion decide to say oui, it would be probably in one of the Kelsey’s dresses.
Debut bridal collection is all about romance and significant floral motifs of label. Collection offers three versions of Kelsey’s popular Begonia dresses with skirt created of petals. The rest of the gowns are not missing the flowers either, so there is always lovely motif of flower, whether is embroidered into a lace, as appliqué, ruffle or rossete. The fact is that all high quality fabrics (no mixtures) look lavish and delicate, but the thing is that I haven’t seen lace this beautiful for a while. Ability to use so many details on romantically feminine fabrics and silhouettes and stay gracefully pure in the same time, deserves a bow. Fact that Miss Genna is only 22, is another reason for that.
All gowns are made to measure and are amazingly handcrafted (Train on completely flower-embroidered Gardenia or georgette frills on the skirt of Boheme would make many couture houses blush.), while the ceremony of finding the perfect wedding dress is highly professional. Before you order a dress, you will receive tailored mockup, upon which Kelsey will make sure everything will look flawless on you. I have to say, I cannot make up my mind about favorites. Bohemianly romantic silhoutte of Birkin, Florence and Cherry blossom? Or fitted Garden, Flowercup and Gardenia?
I’ve never been a bride-kind-of-girl, but since the day Kelsey presented bridal collection, all I want now is to get married. In Kelsey Genna, of course. Oh Kelsey, what have you done to me?
