‘Cloud Nine’ – The Stunning New Bridal Collection from Dreamers & LoversLARA LAM PHOTOGRAPHY
Alongside such favourites as Jenny Packham, Claire Pettibone and Pronovias, I have loved sharing new and boutique bridal designers with you this year such as Emily Riggs, Lihi Hod, Saiid Kobeisy and others. And today I have another one, this time for all you vintage loving bohemian brides-to-be currently on the hunt for your perfect wedding dress: Dreamers & Lovers. Their new ‘Cloud Nine’ collection for 2017 is filled with to-die-for gowns, so have your pinning finger ready!…..
Since its creation in 2012, independent wedding dress label Dreamers & Lovers have become renowned for their uniquely beautiful and bohemian wedding dresses. But this their latest collection has taken beauty to a whole new level! ‘Cloud Nine’ is simply stunning, and I for one am utterly head over heels. It is everything a modern vintage-loving bride adores: bohemian yet sophisticated, luxurious yet affordable, timelessly elegant and a true celebration of the female form, with its both seductive and refined silhouettes.
Founder, owner and designer Yanique said of it…“Love is a rich and multifaceted emotion, undoubtedly the foremost wonder of life. It’s an emotion that I’ve always endeavored to convey, in each and every one of my designs. Comfort, freedom, beauty, youthfulness: everyone of these is a facet of Love and a facet I’ve considered and hopefully expressed in the designs of Dreamers and Lovers simple, laid back wedding dresses. The all new Cloud Nine collection is no different, only…this time I thought I’d add a little something extra: Seduction, Intimacy and Confidence!
Being in Love is also about the element of seduction, intimacy and the confidence that comes along with that feeling of being on Cloud Nine. These are the facets I’ve allowed to really shine through in this collection. Out of all our previous collections, I believe this one to be the most unapologetically seductive, with that little bit of extra attention paid to the female form, it’s graceful curves and subtleties, in all its glory.”
“You’ll still find that same attention to detail, the same top quality, lightweight and luxurious fabrics, the same consideration for comfort and the simplicity that has become synonymous with boho and Dreamers and Lovers…however, this time round, we’re letting you flaunt a touch more of that shape that makes you a boho goddess and, of course, that skin which your groom-to-be can’t seem to get his hands off! “
“We know that the spirit of boho, of the laid back bride, is the spirit of all strong, authentic, creative women throughout the ages and so it’s no surprise that I found my inspiration for Cloud Nine in an unforgettable fashion and music icon, one who seems to have found the secret of eternal youth: the unforgettable Cher.”
“It was an early picture of her at an award show, in a figure hugging paneled gown: she looked like she felt that she owned the room. Outspoken, daring and exquisite…throughout her career, Cher conveyed timeless elegance in a way that was also, somehow, ahead of trend and always unquestionably her own. We want our brides to be able to do the same. We want you to feel like you’re on Cloud Nine. It’s that simple.” – Yanique, Founder and designer of Dreamers and Lovers.
These gowns speak to vintage loving brides, as well as free-spirited boho brides though, and there’s a reason for this. Yanique explains “We choose heirloom quality fabrics, all with a yesteryear feel. Our model of made-to-order, and making only in the U.S (all of our dresses are made in our Torrance, California studio) allows us to pay attention to the details and finishing. In the process of doing what we love, we have brought back the old tradition of high-end dressmaking, and have combined this model with friendly, hands-on customer service.”
I am completely in love with the Cloud Nine collection, and here’s another reason to love Dreamers & Lovers: as well as their Los Angeles bridal shop their gowns are available to buy online here. And with all Dreamers & Lovers made to your measurements, there’s no need to worry if your dress will fit after ordering. Better still, if you’re a bride in the USA, Canada, Australia, UK, New Zealand or Ireland, then you can select up to 2 dresses try on from the comfort of her own home!
