When conjuring up the look of retro romance, there could be no better muse for a fashion masterpiece than Audrey Hepburn. The silver screen style icon served as inspiration for designer Tak Hau’s fall/winter collection of AriaDress vintage-inspired visions for bridesmaids.
From demure details, such as a bateau neckline or pleats on a skirt, to a halter style homage to the swinging ’60s, Hau has added subtle elements of the past to contemporary, cost-conscious creations for members of the wedding party which range in price from $160 to under $500.
Available in 70 colors, dresses of pure silks, cottons and cotton eyelets make the perfect complement to Tak Hau bridal attire. Introduced at Trump Towers’ Jean-Georges Restaurant in New York City, all styles of silhouettes –including a new embroidered silk shantung– are available in sizes 00 petite to 26 tall at www.AriaDress.com.
For brides-to-be on a budget, be sure to check out the Dress of the Month! Starting on September 1st, Style 107– a strapless, knee-length look in silk shantung (seen in the photo above), regularly prices at $195, will be available for 10% off through September 30th if the design is chosen for the entire bridal party in the same color.
