Pierette offers a beautiful twist on the classic sweetheart neckline, with its delightful off-the-shoulder straps. Both the bodice and the straps are covered with intricate floral lace and they frame the shoulders and décolletage perfectly. The lace then continues down the luxurious skirt, which also features layer upon layer of soft tulle for amazing volume and bounce.

A classic lace-up back gives the perfect fit and lends structure and support to this elegant ballgown, without compromising the stylish neckline. The overall effect is one of regal perfection. Try it with our Nova belt and pretty Monae veil, to really complete the look.

Sparkle fans will love Natasha. This princess-worthy A-line in soft ivory combines layers of twinkling glitter tulle with a beautifully embellished bodice. Covered in hundreds of pearlescent seeds and sequins, it offers amazing, eye-catching sparkle from every angle.

The ornate floral bodice features a plunging neckline, with discreet illusion panels, and a deep V-neck back with sheer illusion lace. This contrasts beautifully with the simple shape of the skirt, which is made from stunning glitter tulle with both ivory and iridescent rainbow glitter for maximum sparkle. Try this with one of our underskirts to show it off to the full. Then finish with a touch more sparkle from our Amixi accessories range.

Our Platinum Edition designs really are a cut above when it comes to exquisite detailing. Marianne has the most detailed floral lace covering the bodice and three-quarter-length sleeves. The striking plunging neckline is a fashion-forward detail, edged with delicate eyelash lace to soften the look. There are also discreet illusion panels for plenty of coverage.

At the back, there’s even more delicate illusion lace. A row of covered buttons leads the eye down to the full A-line skirt, made from layer upon layer of the softest tulle. Princess brides should add a touch of sparkle at the waistline and a stunning contemporary tiara too.

The bodice features an attractively dipped V-neckline and full-length sleeves made from delicate lace. At the back, there are even more pretty florals and a chic row of covered buttons. The A-line skirt has beautiful lace that runs all the way down the length of the magnificent train. This skirt benefits for one or even two of our underskirts to create maximum volume. Try it with a sparkling belt too, to add sparkle and definition to your waistline.
