“The collection came to me in a dream… A beautiful girl running through a lush garden. Her very own Garden of Eden. Beautiful flowering trees in watercolor hues. Red Apple dresses and the temptation of the snake, Seen in a subtle reptile pattern in flowering chiffons. Lots of shimmer from the glistening sun on dewy surfaces. Ombres in blues and greens, pale pinks dominate. I don’t want to wake up, I am in a state of Euphoria!” Monique Lhuillier
What is there to be said about Monique Lhuillier that you’ve not heard before? She’s brilliant. She is loved by her fans. She is an amazing designer. Her evening gowns (and bridal wear) are flawless. Her designs are what dreams are made of. In this case, all of this is true in her very own garden of Monique.
I wish I had dreams like this. Beautiful gowns floating by in my own flower field. There can be no denying the talent and craftsmanship of this collection. Murmurs the moment of the first step on the runway. Deep sighs and perhaps wistfulness as women dared to dream new places – or in some case, any place to wear one. We know it’s only a matter of time when we’ll see one of these on the red carpet.
The only thing I look more forward to is her bridal collection. It will surely create new visions of gardens and beautiful blooms. I’m sure we will see one or more of these in a few weeks in bridal white or ‘something blue’. I don’t know how she does it, but I’m so grateful she does.
