Today I am super excited to be sharing the latest collection from the very first Australian bridal designer I featured on Chic Vintage Brides. It was almost a year ago to the day that I shared the stunning bridal collection created by Mariana Hardwick with its extravagant range of elegant, refined bridal gowns constructed of the most luxurious fabrics and intricate hand detailing. I loved the drama of the black lace in the Luxe collection but the introduction of silver in Precious Curiosities, is a little more subtle and gives the designs a captivating air of ethereal whimsy…..
“Timeless artistry… Elegant femininity… An allusion of irreverence…” are the hallmarks of Mariana Hardwick‘s collections. Mixing traditional with non traditional, Mariana‘s designs are fashion focused, taking bridal wear to a whole new level. Her edgy and sophisticated designs brings together unexpected colour combinations and elegant lines to skilfully celebrate the shape and sensuality of the female form.
Precious Curiosities is available in Mariana Hardwick’s Flagship Store in Brunswick
It’s not just Mariana’s bridal collection that has me excited though! The Hardwick collection - Range 1 premiered at this year’s Mercedes Benz Australia Fashion Week 2012 and wow!
Inspired by elements of the Australian landscape, rocky out crops, minerals and long horizons; and incorporating a natural, strong, metallic colour palette of laser cut leathers and lavishly beaded tulles the range offers a feminine chic selection of tailored silhouettes including dresses, tailored jackets and fitted skirts.
The Hardwick ‘RANGE 1′ Spring/Summer 2012 – 2013 collectionwill be launched at a VIP Launch Night September 2012 – for your exclusive invitation to the VIP Launch, send your contact details to Kaila via firstname.lastname@example.org.
