The gown in the middle of this display is "Melissa"; a new gown from
the 2009 collection of Lila Couture. This gown was introduced at the New York Bridal Market in October, and then came directly to September's Bride.
If you're looking for a gown that is original and new (no one else has it); be sure to consider this beauty.
Melissa is made of silk taffeta with horizontal pleats on the bodice; a V-shaped cut-out at the top, and a beautiful mermaid silhouette. There are two rows of beading at the bottom of the skirt. The top has an optional bow (not shown); and the gown is also available in a petite cut; good for us shorter girls! As with all of Lila's gowns, Melissa is also available in a high-quality polyester taffetta if you choose.
We have put this with a few of our new shorter veils from Jennifer Leigh and absolutely love the look. Of course, the drama of a cathedral length veil would be beautiful, too!
September's Bride...a fresh approach to formal.
