The new collection is a combination of unconventional sheer fluid dresses with more structured and fitted classic gowns.

“I always envision my wedding collections within a certain cohesive paradigm,… not literal, but suggestive… not trendy, but highly personal… Chasing Alix was an ode to the famous French couturier Madame Grés, whose manipulation of fabric resulted in some of the most modern and timeless gowns in fashion history and a woman designer from whom I have always derived great inspiration.” Vera Wang.

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.



Short and Sweet

You don’t have to go to great lengths to find a fantastic wedding dress. Although short style dresses tend to stray from the traditional princess ball gowns, many brides prefer to walk along the aisle with grace, yet carefree and without having to worry about being weighed down by lots of fabric.

Short wedding dresses can also be the best option for a beach or an outdoor wedding reception. It allows you to keep the tradition of wearing white yet giving you more freedom to move.

Most short wedding gowns come in lengths varying between mid thighs, above the knee and ‘midi and tea’ length. With a wide choice of fabrics and styles to choose from you can look chic and dazzling on your wedding day.
