As the hunt for THE perfect gown continues, we think we might have just helped you find the one. It’s a form-fitting, dramatically divine, droolworthy wedding dress that is we’re so thrilled to be revealing today. Readers who dream of a backless wedding gown will no doubt be familiar with the spectacular work of designer Katie May. In a special, exclusive treat photographed by Ty French, we’re revealing the Geneva gown from Katie May’s 2016 collection which is just being released this week! By pairing up with hair and make-up artist Vivian Johnson and floral artist Soil & Stem, Katie May and her team of collaborators bring us a fabulous, foresty fashion-editorial reveal!
Designer Katie May Neu shares that the Geneva gorgeously pairs an elusive blend of richly textured embroidery with a sensual and dramatic silhouette: “She is moody, romantic, and unforgettable – designed for the modern Katie May bride. She was conceived because I was craving something more interesting and special as bridal tends to become repetitive and saturated with the same look.”
Katie drew inspiration from the elaborate fabrication detailing seen on the high fashion European runways. ” This artisanal lace gown evokes drama, sensuality, and style! By the way, did I mention, that gorgeous train is detachable!? ” The team at Katie May have all fallen madly in love with the Geneva, and so have we!
By the way, if you haven’t yet seen our previous exclusive editorial collaborations in which we look at Katie May’s beach-ready Princeville gown and the seductive, form fitting Barcelona gown, have a look now!
