Anna Campbell has an eye for creating breathtaking dresses reminiscent of French romance that parallels with 1920s glamour. We’ve spotlighted Anna Campbell’s fabulous creations before and now, the designer has premiered three more dresses worthy of praise and admiration in her Belle Ivoire Collection. These designs were inspired, in part, by a groundswell of requests for the designer’s Gossamer collection.
The Miranda dress is a silky silhouette. The scoop neck is embellished heavily with clear crystals and beads and continues under the bust. The swirling, scalloped beading rises up to the shoulders to create sparkling cap sleeves.
The beading comes together at the center of the back and drops down to a gathering of fabric, adorned with a bow accent. The gown has a delicate lace overlay on top of the silk lining that makes for a stunning train. Adding a statement headpiece, instead of a veil, puts this period, ethereal look over the top. And if ivory isn’t your shade, this dress also comes in a demure latte.
The Lucinda is an empire-waist gown at its most glamorous. Immediately the eyes are drawn to the ornate gathered waistband, encrusted with jewels from the center that stretch out to the sides. A delicate overlay of lace creates a charming V-neck that continues up to the shoulders, forming lace cap sleeves with small amounts of beading.
The beading on the sleeves continues down the back and ends where the fabric is gathered to form a pretty bow, similar to the Miranda dress. The slim line lace skirt is comfortable, yet elegant.
This gown also comes in two shades and would look like bridal perfection with a floor-length veil.
The Elizabeth Grande takes features from the Miranda and Lucinda and casts a beautiful and dreamy bridal look. Silver-toned beading generously sits on the shoulders as the gown takes a deep V-neck plunge to an embellished bust line. The ornate beading and design adds a touch of glamour to a practical and comfortable fit.
The fabric at the waist is roughly gathered and pulled tight, creating a figure-flattering shape and it, too, has a beautiful bow detail in the back. Covering the shoulders is the continuation of the beading from the straps, that come together in a simple fashion at the center of the back and is attached to the waistband.
This gown is available in ivory, latte and traditional white.
Anna Campbell continues to deliver gorgeous gowns with touches of amorous antiquity. These three additional dresses will be sure to please in 2014 and will probably inspire even more creations from this gifted designer.
