Malta Fashion Week- Farage Bridal Show

A range of exclusive handmade couture Farage Paris, in collaboration with Wedding Bells Bridal Wear & Accessories, made every bride-to-be and past brides, travel to a fairytale land with their range of exquisite and glamorous gowns which looked like they were hand picked right out of our favourite fairy tale! Held at the equally dreamy Xara Lodge, the place was set up as a main runway and reception area, giving the guests a wedding feel, in fact, a beautiful cake was on display and food was being served, as though one attended a wedding reception.

Lace, Chiffon, Crystals, Feathers and exquisite bodices, are some of words that sum up the gowns that graced the runway this evening, kicking off the first Runway Show at Malta Fashion Week.

Models sported make up by none other than Elaine Galea and romantic and beautifully styled hair by Marielle at Prive. In order to compliment their dresses, models held flowers by Alistair.

The details on each gown were glamourous and very bold. One could see a number of style of gowns from Ball Gowns to Fitted to Mermaid dresses made out of the finest fabrics and Swarovski Crystals.The dresses were not all the traditional white dress, however, models sported also a number of ivory and cream gowns.

Most of the dresses were made of either lace, chiffon or silk, however, I noticed that many of the silk dresses always included a chiffon over lay in order to add some drama to the dress.

The most noticeable detail which were noticed on these dresses were the fine bodices on these dresses. A number of see through bodices with a number of crystal, feather and lace designs were the talk of the show. Not only did the bodices have intricate details on the front, however, the details continued to the back of the bodice. Some dresses had a halter neck detail made of lace which also had a see through detail.

Sleeves were also played up. One particular dress had hanging crystals on the sleeve whilst another dress had fine lace and crystals adding short sleeves to the dress. Some dresses also had one shoulder details such as feather, crystal, lace and chiffon details.

Some small details which added an element of femininity to the dresses, were the bow details on some of the front and back of the dresses, whilst others had flower details on parts of the dress whilst others had a lace floral material.

The dresses were not the only talk of the show, the veils and head pieces were just as elegant as the dresses. Long veils with lace details which seemed to go on and dramatic veils complimented the dresses, whilst other dresses had feather details and dainty crystals in the model's hair.
