Full skirts, delicate beading and illusion backs characterises the Justin Alexander Fall 2018 Collection. Offering a variety of styles to satisfy a diverse customer base, the collection presents long sleeves, short sleeves and strapless designs, while lace, tulle and organza fabrics affords the collection feminine finishes. Highlights from the collection included a crepe jumpsuit with V-neck illusion lace bodice and a scoop neck all-over floral embellished ballgown.
The Fall 2018 Reem Acra show was brimming with ethereal femininity. Gypsophila garlands, bouquets and arrangements added an aura of enchantment to the show, serving to complement the collection which features fairytale ballgowns and beautiful embroidery.

Drawing inspiration from three design icons, the LAKUM autumn/winter 2018 collection offers contemporary bridalwear for the bride who wants to push the boundaries. The work of architect Zaha Hadid, painter and sculptor Joan Miro, and avant garde painter Francis Picabia, has informed the result of the collection which features new textures and layers that purposefully refuse to conform. Challenging traditions and norms, separates are visited with a fearless approach while the geometry of lace is given a modern-day makeover. For an eloquent statement that confident brides are willing to make, the LAKUM collection is guaranteed to turn heads.

Signature pearls, fabrics and beaded embroidery come together to create gowns that are as varied as New York City and the authentic women that inspired them. Beaded capes, powerful boleros and embellished trains add interest and individuality, while lace appliqué and beaded accents in cascading formations offer a common thread to the collection.
The 2018 Atelier Pronovias Collection, created by the maison's designer, Hervé Moreau, includes dresses that play with silhouettes and innovative patterns. Filled with possibilities, the collection presents mermaid styles, evasé cuts, and designs with generous volumes. The dresses, crafted in organza, crepe, soft satin and French lace, are finished with white gemstone embroidery detailing for ultimate sophistication and delicacy.
