Designed by Amsale Abrerra, the Christos line is for the dreamy, romantic bride. The collection is always a favorite with light and airy fabrics, delicate embellishments and classic silhouettes. Here are a few designs we loved:
The Pippa Effect: Forget Kate, lace sleeves didn’t make a big splash at market, but her sister’s cowl neckline slim-fitting gown sure did. This chiffon column gown with cowl neckline and lace inset immediately made us tweet “Pippa!” Let’s face it, not many brides will put their ‘maids in white, but if you were a fan of Pippa Middleton’s maid-of-honor dress you may want to try on this gown. (We heard her secret to that perfect fit was the right undergarments. We recommend Spanx.)
Illusion Closures: We can’t remember the last time we saw such a simple, yet chic closure to the back of a dress. This beaded trumpet gown has a bateau illusion neckline with a simple white ribbon bow closure at the nape of the neck.
Lace as Illusion: While we’ve seen a lot of illusion necklines this market — dare we say trend? — this lace illusion neckline is more romantic than simple net or tulle. Adding to the traditional lace fabric is the traditional bridal button closure.
Lace Hem Detailing: You really have to see this dress up close to be as blown away as we were by the beauty of the detailing. The three-tiers of this organza ball gown have Chantilly lace applique embellishments that are beautiful. Really, it’s quite stunning.
Petal & Floral Embellishments: Another must-have detail of the spring 2012 season is small floral embellishments. This soft colored gown, it’s lighter than a blush, featured beaded flower and petal degrade on the bodice and scattered over the tulle skirt.
