Pure Romance

Can't describe my excitement when I was sent an invite to attend Le Grand and Z Wedding Couture Runway Show last night at W Singapore Sentosa Cove! I've always loved wedding gowns and I've even thought of becoming a bridal gown designer a few years back. I was so obsessed with corsets and wedding gowns I tried sewing one when I was 17 years old. Some of my friends would recall me skipping school for this personal project hehe. It took 4 days for me to draft, sew and handstitch and the gown turned out pretty decent I would say! Some images herehere and here. It's not perfect but I'm still very happy to create it without any knowledge of drafting/sewing before.

Coming back to the showcase, the runway was adorned with delicate flower backdrop with the loveliest shades of coral and rose. The models graced the stage wearing couture gowns well embellished with exquisite trimmings and fabrics fit for royalty, it's almost like fairytale. I loved the white dresses the most, it's a line-up of elaborate silhouettes, volumes of sheer tulle, petal-like layering, floral appliqués, interesting textures and Chantilly lace. It's pure romance to the core, just right for brides-to-be.

It was quite a pity that we didn't manage to sit at our reserved seats as the public guests were so enthusiastic to seeing the fairytale showcase, now who wouldn't? Nonetheless, we managed to get some good photos!

Other than their beautiful white gowns, I also liked the rich-colored midnight blue gowns. They exude a fine elegance of mystery and poise. The music complimented the atmosphere very well too. The models pulled the dresses off with effortless perfection and you could tell how soft the fabrics by their fluidity. These dresses are literally made of dreams. Absolutely stunning showcase.

Thank you Le Grand Wedding, Z Wedding, W Singapore Sentosa Cove and Katelyn for having us last night! (:
