Gowns from La Vie

Went to La Vie Bridal at 18 Everton Road to try on their beautiful gowns. Lewis the designer was really really nice, allowing me to try on so many pieces. They have a unique aesthetic that was subtle, surreal and elegant. Known for their bold use of colours, their evening gowns really stood out from the rest of their competitors.

I liked the last fuschia outfit best. It had an oriental touch with the mandarin collar, and the use of lace is reminiscent of the kebaya. It is even convertible in the sense that the dress and be worn as a bustier, without the collar. Plus, the train is at least 2 metres long!

The ivory/green outfit is a tad confused though. The embroidery on the corset channeled Indian glam, but the netting made me look like a pixie from Neverland. The headpiece looks like it came from Victorian times. I must say their workmanship is really tiptop though. The corset fitted like a glove, and they sewed in the padding, unlike most bridal shops.

Great place to get a gown from, but unfortunately, they didn't have what I was looking for.
