Monique Lhuillier 2016 Bridal Collection

New York Bridal Week saw the release of so many beautiful collections. One collection in particular that stood out to us was by Monique Lhuillier. Monique is a fashion designer but best know for her bridal wear. Known for her airy and romantic wedding dresses, the 2016 collection stuck to tradition using beautiful crystal embroidery, cinnamon and honey hues, plunging necklines and thousands of yards of tulle. The collection was inspired by fairytale ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and we couldn’t help but daydream about what shoes we would pair the dresses with. See below for our three favourite looks paired with the perfect Freya Rose bridal shoes!

Look 1: Swarovski Gown & Aaleyah Shoes

This gown, with its scattered Swarovski detail instantly reminded us of the Freya Rose ‘Aaleyah’ shoes. ‘Aaleyah’ is a contemporary bridal shoe with a high heel and elegant platform, made with an Ivory Duchess Silk Satin. The delightful back, heel and platform detail is exquisitely embellished with Swarovski crystals, applied delicately by hand. The intricate work of this Freya Rose shoe takes up to six weeks to be completed, resulting in a truly exquisite bridal shoe.


Look 2: Plunge Neck Gown & Snowqueen Shoes 

With a plunging neckline and an encrusted embellished lace bodice, this gown has quite a regal and striking presence. The embellishments lent itself to the Freya Rose ‘Snowqueen‘ shoes. A gorgeous slingback shoe from the Freya Rose Couture collection, ‘Snowqueen’ is made with the finest French Chantilly lace and hand embellished with Swarovski crystals using intricate and unique embroidery techniques synonymous to the Freya Rose brand. Featuring the signature Freya Rose Mother of Pearl heel making the shoe truly precious.


Look 3: Blue Tule Gown & Mara ShoesThe subtle blue tones of this fairytale gown and delicate lace appliqué would be complimented by silvers and Swarovski crystals. The Freya Rose ‘Mara‘ shoes would be our choice with this gown as they would look great peeping out and shimmering from underneath.  Freya Rose ‘Mara’ shoes stunning slingback made with stunning silk organza and silver kid leather. The delicate and sparkling detail is hand embellished in our London studio using Swarovski crystals and hand beaded crystal flowers.
