Caroline Castigliano: NYFW Bridal
“My inspiration behind the 2019 ‘Power of Love’ Collection was a relaxed and effortless style. I love creating glamorous pieces that fit perfectly and create a beautiful silhouette, but at the same time appear relaxed and chic. The Power of Love collection has gowns that are understated and quite simple, but also exude a sensual feeling. For me it all comes down to the cut and the movement. If the architecture and foundations of the gown are not there, you do not have a fabulous wedding dress. So that is what I was inspired to achieve in this collection.”

British designer Caroline Castigliano, has been in the bridal and eveningwear industry for 27 years and understands that every bride has different needs and wants. In her collections, there is something for ever bride to make their own. With every handcrafted Castigliano gown, a sketch turns into a bride’s dream more astonishing than they could ever imagine. We asked Caroline for her tips when choosing a dress and here is her advice!
“Once they have booked the venue, and they have seen the room where they are going to have their wedding breakfast, they have seen the dance floor, they just want to think about that moment. When you leave the table, and walk towards the dance floor with their now husband how is it that they want everyone to see them.
You don’t need to know the shape of the dress, if you are working with an expert they will find the silhouette for you. What you need to know is what that dress is saying to people. Is it saying a very strong traditional look, soft and romantic, elegant and classic, vintage, boho. What is the appeal of the dress?
Without considering the silhouette decide on the vision – once this has been determined – go try on gowns and you will get advice. It is important to work with someone that understands silhouettes and fabrics so they can show you what suits you what creates a strong silhouette for you.
If you are 5ft you will suit totally different silhouettes to someone that is 5’8” tall – if you are full busted you will suit different silhouettes to a bride that is more petite. Once you get going it is all quite easy but it starts with that one all important question – What vision do I want my future husband and my guests to see when I arrive at the wedding.”
