A new Luxury wedding gown design house has emerged, sweeping blushing brides off their feet with their intricately designed, yet wistfully carefree masterpieces. Isabelle Armstrong, based in New York City, focuses design aesthetic on extraordinary fabrics and unique draping techniques to create opulent designs in timeless silhouettes. Each gown is made with precise attention to detail with the highest quality of fabrics and
materials, placing the Isabelle Armstrong Collection on the highest tier of wedding gown designers.
The Isabelle Armstrong Spring 2015 wedding gown collection was inspired by a painting of the La Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona, Spain. The textured spires from the grand Cathedral influenced the fabric creation, with the beautiful historic-city sky at sunset inspiring the splashes of peaches and rose tones in some of the dresses from this collection.
The Ariana gown epitomizes the mantra of Isabelle Armstrong, giving the bride who chooses her splendor, passion and, above all, grace. The bodice of the gown is a delicate mixture of French Chantilly lace and re-embroidered lace over crepe back satin. The trumpet of the gown integrates cascading lace into folds of silk organza.
Fabric choices, like the delicate lace used in the Andrea gown (right) are the highest quality, as the founders of Isabelle Armstrong have scoured the globe to find exceptional quality of textiles and materials, foraging the lace houses of France and sought-after silk houses of Italy.
Isabelle Armstrong saw a need for extraordinary customer service in the luxury bridal industry and decided to focus on meeting the needs and exceeding the expectations of their brides. The luxury design house leaves women with no shortage of options. Dresses run from glamorous and traditional, such as Mari shown here, to chic and modern, aspiring to make every woman feel beautiful.
“At Isabelle Armstrong, we have developed a unique formula and team of world-class designers, illustrators and seamstresses to bring unique master works of art to life, such as in our youthfully exquisite Lacie (right),” said Tara Nattini, President of Isabelle Armstrong. “We spared no expense and left no stone unturned in our efforts to bring a fresh, new look to the haute couture bridal gown industry. And we’re just getting warmed up.” Already, Isabelle Armstrong glimmers exuberantly in the spotlight.
The intricately designed, yet wistfully carefree masterpieces bestow a radiant glow upon the women who wear them in those auspicious moments that they will remember for a lifetime.
