Theia - NYFW Bridal
Theia showed during New York Fashion Week in close quarters, which was designed to mimic inside a royal palace in honor of the upcoming royal wedding.
Despite the tradition baroque scrollwork draped throughout the runway, the dresses – and brides, resembled a less traditional royal wedding. Theia describes its brides as cool, sexy, confident, and modern, not afraid to bend the rules. This season’s collection of wedding gowns were no different.
From looks named Meghan, Regina, Serena, and Anastasia, this entire collection was made for queens ruling in today’s world. The opening look, a mermaid styled gown with embroidered Swarovski crystals was followed by a halter gown accompanied with a hand-embroidered floor length cape. Satin fitted gowns and ball gown skirts followed one another, each one fitted for a different figure. One of Theia’s most beautiful models had a bigger figured and showed how beautiful pieces are not made in just one size. One of my favorite and unexpected looks was a lace triple tiered gown with an illusion plunging neckline. A similar illusion neckline, including bateau, was featured on several dresses, with One dress added balloon sleeves, which flirted with the 80’s style seen on other runways this season as well. The final look was a champagne ball gown with silver zardozi embroidery, truly made for royalty.
Inclusion was clear with this collection, from the array of fabrics and fits and model sizes, and with that I thought this collection was quite cohesive in the most non-traditional sense.
