Collette Dinnigan Resort 2012 Bridal Collection

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


Pearls & Palms Strapless Wedding Gown

Collette Dinnigan’s Resort 2012 Bridal Collection is such a work of beauty.

I love that Collette has moved from strapless with three designs from this collection- including one with three quarter sleeves. She’s also played with texture (my favourite designs always have beautiful texture) and used french corded laces which make it a little more traditionally “bridal” than recent collections but still with the Collette Dinnigan sense of glamour and style.

The gowns will be in-store shortly, but until then- which is your favourite?

    I remember most of my clients ask for Wedding Gowns to try on. This is the perfect one. Very princess-like collections.

    I’ve got a brand new CD Fantasia gown in sz XS (8 – 10) that I no longer want. It is still at the Woollahra store and the retail price is $4490. I’ve got it on layby but have purchased another dress and as this gown is literally the last one in Australia with no more to be made I thought I would try to find someone who might want it.
    Let me know if you are interested.
