Anne Barge Fall/Winter 2018 Bridal Collection

The Anne Barge Fall/Winter 2018 bridal collection is an interpretation of nature’s midnight garden. An escape into a fanciful garden that inspires all things feminine – a delicate tracery of ribbons and bows, a whisper of pink, dreamy layers of floral lace. Hair and makeup are kept sleek and simple, with smooth, swept back ponytails held by a ribbon and a darker lip for a nineties accent. Skin is soft and luminous with a subtle sheen of rose gold and lightly lashed eyes.

Anne Barge Bridal

Luxury bridal designer Anne Barge is known for her classic and timeless silhouettes. We like to share with you the story behind her success and inspirations in her own words.

My mother was an organ pianist and started taking me with her to ceremonies when I was barely three years old. I have one vivid memory of a wedding where the entire church was filled with gardenias. Watching the bride come down the aisle to the wedding march, smelling the sweet floral air, the whole experience was like a fairytale. It was then that I began to focus on my lifelong dream.

When I graduated from college, I worked as Jim Hjelm’s assistant at Priscilla of Boston. He is one of my oldest and dearest friends. As a retailer, I was one of Amsale’s first customers and we have stayed close family friends ever since. Beyond being great people, I think the two are both fabulous designers who have made enormous contributions to our industry.

The trend in bridal has definitely gone as low and as bare as it can in recent years. I predict the pendulum will swing back and designers will start to explore more conservative styles. My aesthetic will always be one of refinement; we interpret trends in a way that upholds our timeless and classic style.

The Glamorous Wedding of Sofia and Phillip

A fairy tale wedding that was organised and held far from their homeland at Villa Pizzo di Cemobbio on lake Campo, Italy. A glamorous wedding full of unforgettable moments.

Details of the dress: “I was looking for a romantic and sophisticated gown and the lace embroidered portrait neckline gown designed by Anne Barge was the perfect choice”.

The bride was wearing a pair of diamond earrings to match her gorgeous diamond wedding band and engagement ring.

Our Stylish Real Brides

We like to wish all of our beautiful brides who got married in 2013 a very happy and prosperous New Year. It was amazing to be involved in making their dream wedding dress. Here are some our gorgeous brides who tied the knot last year.

Anne Barge Fall 2014 bridal collection

The Anne Barge Fall 2014 Bridal collection brings us a vintage feel that has been a trend in bridal fashion for quite a while now. Beautiful laces and delicate embroideries on layers of organza are wrapped around feminine silhouettes and draped bodice.
Inspired by the Hollywood in the thirties the designer explains in an interview with the October 14 issue of The Daily Bridal Magazine how she has named the collection after famous ballets.What’s the story behind these frocks?
The layered pastel chiffons, laces, and tulles made me think of Degas’ dancers. Then I got inspired by ballerinas, so we named each dress after a famous ballet.Have you ever done ballet?
Let’s just say I was not very good!

The last few looks were very glamorous!
That’s our Black Label collection based on Hollywood in the Thirties. It’s glitzy!

How long did it take to bead the Garbo dress?
Around 1,800 hours!
