If you’re a bride who really likes flowers, why limit your blossoms to just a bouquet? It’s logic like this that made designer Sheri Autry’s spring collection at Couture Fashion Week stand out. And, of course, the red and pink flowers “blooming” all over her designs. These flowers are not a mere pattern on fabric either. In many cases, they’re embroidered flower appliques that lend realism to the dream of being a living part of a garden. In fact, the effect will turn heads at a wedding or flow well into other formal wear. According to Sheri Autry Couture, roses cascading down the leg of a sheer gown and the lacy illusion that you are walking on a bed of flowers extend beyond the proverbial march to the altar. After all, what woman wouldn’t smile when decked out in a luxurious haute couture bouquet?
But this is what one might expect of Sheri Autry, who crafts her gowns from imported silks, tulle, chiffon, and illusive fabrics often enhanced by one-of-a-kind embellishments. Based out of Pasadena, MD, she designs her contemporary gowns and lingerie to be conversation starters and head-turners. Indeed, she outdid herself on the runway with such attire, from extreme sheer dresses to a super-abundance of lacey layers. Both styles proved equally elegant in their ability to capture attention.
If, after this show, one still wonders whether florals are in, Sheri Autry Couture’s staggered length gown lined with flowers leaves no doubt. Each piece in this shimmering collection is fit for a princess wearing her own bouquet to the ball in any season.
