High-end Canadian bridal designer, Paloma Blanca and sister label Mikaella Bridal have unveiled their breathtaking Fall 2016 Collections. Fresh from the catwalks of New York Bridal Week, both collections radiate classic elegance and romance with a daring, contemporary twist.
Plunging necklines, luxurious lace and Swarovski crystals define the much-anticipated Paloma Blanca Fall 2016 Collection, with luxurious satin linings added for enhanced quality and comfort. The styles, which retail from £1,540, are designed to be flattering, decadent and feminine. While plunging necklines recur throughout the collection, there is a design to suit every shape. From bold fitted lace corset bodices to romantic sweetheart necklines, flared tulle and organdy skirts to sweeping A line silhouettes, the collection is adorned with glittering Swarovski crystal buttons and beautiful Mokuba ribbon.
The Mikaella Bridal Fall 2016 Collection retails from £1,330. The collection takes classic slinky silhouettes and gives them a bohemian-but-modern twist. From elegant bodices paired with detachable tulle overskirts to plunging necklines atop beautiful lace fit-and-flare skirts, the collection is varied but brought together by its chic-but-devastating aesthetic.
Paloma Blanca and Mikaella Bridal gowns are exclusively designed and created in Toronto at the labels’ own manufacturing facilities, forming two branches of the largest Canadian-made bridal manufacturer in North America. With their streamlined in-house process, the labels are famed for their distinct style, exquisite fabrics, innovative design and second-to-none customer service. This firm commitment to excellence is largely owed to the company’s rich history of family values.
Founded in 1937 by Manny Bernstein, and later managed by his brother Harry, Paloma Blanca was originally named Blue Bird Dress, and quickly established itself as a leading design house in Toronto. After Harry’s sons, Marty and Shimmy Bernstein, introduced the label to hundreds of stores across the USA in the 1970s, Blue Bird Dress became Paloma Blanca, and its focus shifted exclusively to bridal wear and accessories.
In 2004, Mikaella Bridal was created as a sister brand and a new addition to the Paloma Blanca family. Mikaella Bridal retains the impeccable standards and reputation of Paloma Blanca, while offering a more attractive price point than its higher-end counterpart. Mikaella Bridal gowns offer a soft, feminine and bohemian look.
Paloma Blanca and Mikaella Bridal remain family owned to this day, as well as 100% Canadian made. Their flattering and inspiring designs have earned a number of prestigious bridal industry awards, have graced the pages of international wedding magazines and can be found in the very best bridal boutiques in over 200 cities worldwide.
