Scroll through to see some of our favorites from each collection and learn about the inspiration behind the new designs! Cheers!
Watters “Reign” Collection – In a nod to nobility, the premiere line’s regal inspiration was derived from the historic traditions of lavish Monaco weddings and English aristocracy. Traditional gowns take modernized approaches in design specifics such as custom beading detail, delicate laces and endless layers of cascading organza on a variety of silhouettes. In addition to “Reign,” the namesake will also debut it’s second exclusive capsule collection comprised of four gowns. A take on couture, each design is handmade with a high grade of craftsmanship, using only the finest of fabrics and displaying impeccable hand embellishment of pearls and light-reflecting crystals for a dazzling moment down the aisle.
Wtoo “Ethereal Illumination” Collection – Ancient Greek goddesses and Greco-Roman architecture shape the design details in this collection heavily embodying glamorous Mediterranean inspiration. Two luxe collection-exclusive fabrics in a burnout and a striped lace enhance the light and airy Grecian feel of the line. Special design elements like scroll work patterns and laurel leaf details give princess style ball gowns and floating A-line gowns alike a fresh aesthetic makeover, along with a wide variety of other silhouette styles.
Willowby Watters “La Luna” Collection – Known for its free spirit aesthetic in the three-line brand, the upcoming season’s “La Luna” looks to the stars for inspiration in a collection of whimsical, airy pieces. Playful embellishments of tassels and constellation-like beading prove to be the standout design elements, with fabrics in gauzy netting and unique delicate lace. Easy silhouettes shape the collection, which all embrace the notion of breezy movement.
Watters Bridesmaids and Social “Grand Bazaar” Collections – Moroccan spice markets influence nearly every detail in these collections of bridesmaid attire. Warm shades of amber and rust indulge the mind’s eye with the notion of richly flavorful spices, and flowing styles in dresses, separates and even jumpsuits offer ample variety and opportunity for unique altar visuals!
Wtoo Bridesmaids and Social “Indigo Bloom” Collection – Inspired by the coastline, these classic bridesmaids styles come in soft shades of indigo, pink and grey and are ideal for an easy selection of dresses speaking to beauty in simplicity.
