BACK TO THE SEVENTIES!! FLORALS & BOWS HAVE NEVER BEEN SO SEXY!
I was luckily enough to be invited to take a sneak peek at the new 2017 line of beautiful, elegant and sexy wedding dresses; which were on show at the ‘Made in Love’ event held in the stunning Palazzo Di Varignana, Bologna, ITALY.
Vittoria opened her own studio in 1992 and has since grown into a well recognised designer and stylist for wedding and formal wear worldwide. The dresses designed by Vittoria carry a distinguish look which set’s her apart from others. Paying special attention to detail and studying every aspect of fabric and embellishments used, she is able to create a unique tailored piece that embraces every characteristic of the person wearing it. Not only has Vittoria created some beautiful wedding dresses, but she also has worked with some very influential people for events. Her line will not disappoint!
Atelier Lucente are well established and elegant professionals and now a landmark for the Bride and Groom, due to the many years experience they have in tailoring. Their large headquarters of 400 square meters offers brides and grooms a wide selection of excellent quality ‘dress ready’ attire, from some of the top brands such as The Bride Barcelona, White One, Maggie Sottero, Empire Couture, Jarice, Magnani Atelier, Maestrami Ceremony, Petrelli, Andrea Versali, and Enzo Romano plus many more. You can be sure that every piece on show is both fashionable and elegant; and they take the utmost care for every size, paying special attention to curvy lines for sizes 48 and up. At Atelier Lucente, you can also with the help of the designer, create and customize your own bespoke dream dress using only the highest quality of Italian fabrics.
The new line offers Brides a unique style with elegance, class and a touch of sexiness. They certainly have that ‘wow’ statement factor, and what aspiring bride doesn’t want that on their wedding day!
Designers have pulled from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s for 2017, and wedding dresses certainly follow suit! The new season promises to offer plunging necklines, florals with a 3D effect, oversized bows, asymmetrical cuts and just a hint of sparkle. Below are just a few of the dresses that were on show from Vittoria Bonini and Atelier Lucente.

What is there not to love about the new season’s style, with intricate detail still being a priority, the line offers a wide range of choice for every bride. This way they can choose a style that they feel completely at ease in, or sway away and try something a little different; either way the options are endless. The theory of wearing your mothers wedding dress (or someone close to your heart) might not be a thought too far!
If however, you have a particular style in mind, both Vittoria Bonini and Atelier Lucente will be able to help you put all of your ideas on to paper in order to design your bespoke dress. Along with wedding dresses, they both offer bridesmaids dresses, mother of the bride outfits, groom and groomsman attire, red carpet ready and special event dresses. Although based in Italy, both companies provide their expertise and beautiful creations worldwide.
