2011 Douglas Hannant collection for the fashion-forward bride

Douglas Hannant and I had a chat during fashion week when he hinted at his excitement for this upcoming bridal season.  He said he wanted to create a 2011 collection for a strong; no holds bared kind of bride.  So you can imagine the surprise of walking into the Plaza hotel Edwardian Room to see trees and …snow?  For a spring collection? Always known to make a statement the first model strut her stuff in a silk crepe and satin trim tuxedo.  Yes, that was absolutely an attention grabber as each of the pieces that followed.

From the tux to feathers to tiered organza skirts, each piece said “This is my wedding day and I’m doing it my way”.  What stuck me was the detail; simply yet stunning.  The drama came from an embroidered dodice or a simple front with a plunging back.  The veils were cage bird like and in some instances, no veil at all.  It was refreshing that there was a mix of traditional yet daring to be different.  Who says you must have a veil or hat, or your hair has to be in a sweet and perfect bun?  Definitely not Douglas.

Douglas Hannant creates for a woman who knows her self, loves to walk just outside of the box, looks effortlessly amazing, is bold and oh yea…she is a bride too.
