Always classic tailoring and an eye for fashionable flare, the 2011 collection by Douglas Hannant featured 10 dramatically stunning options. What makes this collection a treat is that he has bumped up the romantic lines, ruffles and roses into more modern designs that are breathtaking. Blush, floral embellishments, the most cathedral worthy 12-foot long train simply blew me away. While this looked like it weighed a ton, Douglas took the ‘day’ in mind and chose a fabric that is in fact lightweight and literally floats down the aisle.
While these dresses are not inexpensive, I can honestly say that they are worth every penny. These are the kinds of dresses that a bridal statement is made. The use of horsehair trim, feathers pearled embroidery or silk wool were genius.
