What kind of bride are you? Capturing all the considerations of tradition, propriety, sensuality and fashion into one dress is far from easy. For brides who gravitate more towards style over fashion, I recommend delicate and artisanal details such as hand-tied bows, fabric-covered buttons, lace trims and embroidery.
I refer to these brides as traditionalists, and I love their instinct for the subtle and the sublime. The traditionalist is the timeless beauty of Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O, women who understood that understatement, together with grace and poise, is utterly captivating. — XO, Vera

Dress Diary: Lindsey
Lace is always graceful, with its precariously stitched-together threads, its intricate, patterns, and its delicacy. This is the kind of precious fabric that gets carefully preserved from one generation to the next, its remnants boxed away in tissue or under glass for future family members to discover and relish. It holds onto memories and will always tell a story, which is what makes it so fitting for a wedding gown. For Fall, I wanted to revisit these inherent heirloom qualities of lace, but I wanted the end result to be fully modern. With Lindsey, you have a decadent exploration of lacework. Four different types of lace used in a variety of ways in the gown make a sweepingly romantic statement.
