Monique Lhuillier brings forth glamour and gorgeous gowns for her Resort 2012 Collection. The Filipino born designer chose a vast palette of colours for her new range, starting with pristine white, moving into summer pinks and oranges, to darker shades of blue. She remains steadfast in her feminine design aesthetic, there is no shortage of ruffles here. These are some of the pieces from the collection.
Navy blue and white usually remind me of nurses uniforms, but Monique manages to capture an elegant side to these two colours. There's the white ruffle wrap-over dress and navy ruffled collar mini. Shades of blue replace the typical animal print colours.
Tropical coloured taffeta gowns make a splash with textured mini ruffles and ballgown silhouettes. Coral sets the scene for printed dresses, which are dusted with a bit of lavender. I see these styles being Matric farewell favourites. I love the lavender chiffon gown, which has a tulle skirt covered in floral appliqués (pictured bottom right).
Embellished tulle princess gowns complete the outstanding collection.
