From the gifted team at Maggie Sottero comes the visions of the Sottero and Midgley collection and it is definitely worth seeing.
This is a classic, beaded creation. With a jewel neckline, this generously beaded, lace gown has cap sleeves and features a fitted silhouette. The sparkle goes from top to bottom and jewel-covered vision.
The beading on this gown is glamorous. With a unique, sheer neckline, the fitted gown has a top layer of swirly, floral beading with large jewels intertwining with small delicate beads.
This is a classic gown with a modern twist. With a modified sweetheart neckline, the lace gown is fitted and flows to a lace hem. The waistband is adorned with a statement, contemporary belt.
This strapless gown also has a modified sweetheart-neckline with heavy beading on the bust. Then, the rest of the gown features a scalloped lace pattern that is beautiful and antique. We love the variation on the lace fabric.
This gown is regal and remarkable. The top of the dress is sheer and has a jewel neckline and cap sleeves. It is definitely the statement piece of the design. It features a web of beading and transcends into the intricate beading of the gown.
This gown is timeless. The top has a wide neckline and features cap sleeves. It has statement lavish scalloped beading all the way across and the same design is mimicked on the bodice of the dress. The lacy embellished fabric is capped off with a waistband of ribbon and jewels. The ornate layer has a short hem at the hips and sits atop simple, satin fabric that runs all the way to the floor and collects in a short train.
This is a subtle, blush-colored conception. Beading runs from top to bottom, all the way from the cap sleeves and V-neck to the lacy hem. The top layer of beading lies on a pink fabric that is feminine and sweet. It’s an understated variation on the popular-beaded lace designs we see from many designers.
This is an art-deco dream. With a deep V-neck top, beading is featured on the straps and down the bodice. Then satin fabric is stitched into beaded fabric from both sides, cascading to a central point on the front of the gown. The top layer of sheer fabric then flares out, featuring the linear stitching and beading from above. It’s another way to look like a 1920s goddess in 2014.
This dress is made from blinding white fabric. The sweetheart neckline is classic and the fitted gown has intricate, structured beading down the length of the dress. The scallops, swirls and floral designs are a feast for the eyes. It’s intricate but not overdone.
For a little color, this ball gown offers brides a variation to the classic white gown. The top has a sweetheart neckline and a beaded bodice with small privacy panel. The beading resembles small flowers surrounded by jewel-encrusted fabric. Then, at the waist, the gown transforms into layers and layers of generous ivory-colored tulle, to give volume to the skirt. It’s an elusive way to add color to a classic design.
We love these creations and think the marriage of classic and modern elements is breathtaking. We can’t wait to see these designs hit the aisles in 2014.
