If there is a designer who has become known for the bold, the beyond, the dramatic – it’s Vera Wang and her beautiful Spring 2017 Bridal Collection keeps true to her bold sense of dramatic style.
Described as “Courtly Love, Modern Grandeur, Sheer Seduction, Secret Rendezvous, Silent Signals, Day for Night, Gardens of Regal Delights.” The collection launched with a short film titled Désir à l’Anglaise (see it on the website) which was created by the designer and directed by Gordon von Steiner and tells the inspiration behind the collections – the grandeur of the monarchy, the regal shapes and structure and the mystery of it all.
The 2017 Spring collections follows this inspiration with corset bodices, wide peplum skirts of boning and lace, delicate flower paillettes, hand appliqued lace sleeves, basque waistlines and bold high necklines. Bralettes, belts with crystal studded buckles and neck ruffs complete the regal mood.
The Vera Wang Spring 2016 Collection will be available in Australia from April 2016 onward.
Happy Monday Dotties! I am so excited about this week – it’s the first time in a long time I have every day stretching ahead of me, and you can bet I am going to make the most of it!
A wedding in amongst the autumn leaves and rain – a few weekends ago we took a trip to Canberra and experienced the delights of this lovely city. Back at home it’s time to take a break in wedding planning while we take some time out as we highlight and show off the members of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory. We have Cinematographers, we have Hair and Beauty, we have Gift Registries and Catering – we even have Menswear and Transport! Our Directory is filling up with vendors who are eager to help you with your wedding plans.

Your favourite wedding story?
I love all the sentiment of a wedding….there was one wedding where the groom had learnt to sing their favourite song without the bride’s knowledge “Just the way you look tonight”…. it was amazing and there was not a dry eye in the house!

Diana and Ben
I love the modern industrial setting of this Sydney engagement session from photographer Lucy Leonardi Photography. The urban surrounds of Carriageworks setting the scene for their own personalised engagement story. Diana explaining, “With Ben being an architect and myself being an environmental planner, the urban environment is a big part of our every day life. We wanted to have our photos taken in one of our favourite parts of the city, Carriageworks at Eveleigh, to show us in an environment that is significant to us and represents who we are.”
Diana tells their story. “Ben and I met online, through RSVP. After seeing so many of my friends’ success stories by using the website, I thought I’d give it a go. Ben was my first date through RSVP. After speaking for a few weeks, we had our first date on Observatory Hill in Sydney, and from the moment we met, that’s it, we both knew we had met the person we wanted to spend the rest of our lives with. Another RSVP success story.”
Diana tells, “We love that we are each other’s best friends. We share the good times, the bad times and life’s challenges together, always looking out for each other as we navigate through life’s journey.”
