MANILA, Philippines - If cupcake wedding gowns are your thing, turn away now. Pastry-shaped frocks are not the province of these forward- thinking young designers who want to shape the future of gowns making their way down an aisle near you.

Gian Romano

“I took my cues from an old bath robe, I liked the clean, architectural lines and the elegant drape.”

Rosanna Ocampo

“For your classic bride who loves good old romance, my gown evokes a vintage feel with an unexpected twist.”

Maureen Disini

“For this particular gown, I tried to inject some drama and romance using materials I picked up from my travels: ivory French lace from Bangkok, frosty white polka-dot illusion tulle from the fabric market in Istanbul, and a pure white velvet bow from the high streets of London. With all these rich textures combined, I kept my lines and silhouette pure and simple.”

Kristel Yulo

“I was inspired by the calm beauty and angelic softness of angels. I had a bride who was very soft who inspired the dress. The shapes of the cutouts, as well as linear beadwork and surface treatment, were inspired by Art Deco period.”

Vania Romoff

 

“Easy, classic and fresh. Pockets on the sides are essential for me.”
