Make sure you take a seat ladies, because we have a new bridal collection to share with you which is bound to make you weak at the knees! Melbourne designer Cathleen Jia recently made an impressive entrance into the bridal world with a spectacular new collection – Toujours. And Love Wed Bliss has exclusive backstage peek into the official launch party.
The evening which took place at the stunning Angelique Boutique, in Armadale Melbourne was nothing short of fabulous. With a wonderfully glamorous atmosphere and a line up of breathtaking gowns embracing a vintage glam style, it was an event which would appeal to the romantic in all of us.
The talented Australian designer’s collection is inspired by the romantic 1920′s, classic 1930s, and the elegant screen goddesses of the 1950′s. A seamless adaptation of a glamorous era with a modern twist, it is a classic contemporary look which is nothing short of timeless. All the gowns are exquisitely handcrafted with luxurious fabrics, and intricately adorned with delicate laces and hand-beaded embellishments, which makes them perfect for the quality discerning, style conscious bride.
At the launch, guests enjoyed a salon-style show featuring luxury gowns in subtle vintage colours, handcrafted headpieces and soft veils all beautifully complemented by gorgeous floral arrangements from Bud flowers. After experiencing an exclusive insight into the Cathleen Jia bridal range, and being treated to chic cocktail fare, guests said farewell with their own special gift bag in arm.
If you would love to see this stunning collection in real time, just take a peek at the beautiful fashion film which debuted for guests before the Toujours collection was revealed. The black beaded gown is to-die-for as is, the immaculate makeup and hair by Miss Aimmey, and stunning event photography by Finessence photography!
