Gemy Maalouf Bridal Fashion Week New York
Gemy Maalouf always starts with fabrics when designing her collections, her key element in every design. Fabric tells the story of the design; and in this case it told a fairytale. Gemy looked to fairytales for inspiration of her Spring Summer 18 collection.
The collection started with light pastels and merges into a series of looks in an expressive primary colored print. Looks with endless tiers of sheer fabrics were adorned with hand beaded bodices, belts and bust lines to add a little sex appeal to gowns a Disney Princess might wear. Star appliqués popped up throughout the collection, a common theme in many designer’s collections this season.
Black and white cocktail looks were given a youthful edge with yellow embellishments and sequins strung around hemlines or clustered on a belt. Yellow was another dominating theme throughout the Spring Summer collections, and Gemy Maalouf’s was no exception.
Maalouf shows the most playful jumpsuits season after season. This season a key look was an allover nude lace jumpsuit with a belt adorned with yellow beading. The delicate lace jumpsuits and wide leg pants were refreshing in a sea of gowns and cocktail numbers, resinating with every woman’s internal princess. And for the rest of you who fully embrace the fairytale style; the countless light pink gowns could leave any person to mistake you for Sleeping Beauty reincarnated.
