Ladies! If you haven’t already met Monique Lhuillier, allow us to make the introduction.
Born and raised in the Philippines, the designer came to Los Angeles to study fashion at FIDM where she met her husband and business collaborator Tom Bubgee.
While planning her own nuptials in 1995, the young bride saw a void in the fashion-meets-bridal category and became inspired to start her own collection of gowns. And the rest is history.
Her looks have been featured widely by magazine editors and snapped up by celebrities, making her one of the most sought after designers around.
It’s about time we shared some of her gorgeous creations, this grouping from her Spring 2011 collection. Enjoy the show!
Everything’s coming up roses in this silk white embroidered and strapless dress with a hi-low skirt covered in tulle roses.
Set the butterflies free with this ivory embroidered stain organza and strapless gown. The draped bodice opens to a trumpet skirt with cascading butterflies. Dreamy.
Keep it short and sweet in this little number with an ivory embellished re-embroidered lace corset and organza ruffled skirt.
Strapless and seamed, this ivory satin gown features and exaggerated trumpet skirt and stylish waist bow.
Divinely draped, this ivory pebbled georgette strapless gown seduces with an asymmetric sheath and side slit.
