Yesterday, we had our planning meeting for the next issue and caught up on all of the wonderful happenings that has occurred over the past month, including my favorite time of year…Bridal Market! Romona Keveza’s  new Spring 2014 collection came up quite a bit in conversation for inspiration for the upcoming issue, that is set to debut in October. We here at Smitten wanted to share with you her latest collection and let you see why we all are raving about it!

Aptly titled, ‘A Passage Through Time’, the Spring 2014 Romona Keveza Couture Bridal Collection pays tribute to timeless style. Each moment, each decade informs us of a particular elegance, a certain gesture of glamour and refinement. Whether leaning back or facing forward, Keveza reflects on fashion’s best by mingling the truth of these moments with her own collection’s DNA in a thoughtful, subtle manner fusing the history of yesteryear with the mystery of tomorrow.

1800’s – Victoriana. While the preferred choice of this era was now the white wedding gown thanks to the trend-setting Queen Victoria, her daughter Princess Anne boldly chose to marry in blush. Keveza’s homage begins with a striking, romantic off-the- shoulder blush Silk Organza ball gown.

1920’s – Gatsby. A quietly decadent slim fluted gown in Beaded Chantilly Lace shimmies along to this era of elegance.

1930’s – Hollywood Glamour. Keveza’s Beaded Lace covered Silk Charmeuse gown has Film Noir Goddess Jean Harlow

written all over it.

1940’s – A Return to Luxury. Celebrating the joy of dressing up, Keveza’s Wedgewood Blue Silk Taffeta ball gown is an ode to the grand, sweeping gestures of Christian Dior and Charles James.

1950’s – Funny Face. Romona Keveza captures the essence of this new upbeat era and style icons like Audrey Hepburn with her pearl-covered waltz-length wedding dress.

1960’s – Camelot. Jackie Kennedy, the eternal beacon of sophisticated American style, inspires this Romona Keveza swirling ribbon structured gown.

1980’s – The Decade of Decadence. Channeling the ‘more was more’ ethos of the late great Couture Embroiderer, Francois Lesage, Keveza lavishes her own bell-shaped ball gown with beading, embroidery and charming scallops.

1990’s – A New Cool. Romona Keveza’s airy one-shoulder Soutache Lace circle-skirted ball gown reflects the era’s new sense of hushed chic.

The Millennium. Delving into her archives from yesteryear, Keveza updates her classic asymmetric neckline with the exciting new fabric technologies of today by layering a near-transparent tulle over-skirt atop a fluted Embroidered Applique Lace mermaid.

The Future. Keveza creates a new future classic while looking forward with pure, uninhibited imagination. With innovative hi-tech fabrics, her nude strapless column layered in silk tulle nearly disappears on the skin. Silicone Crystals sprinkled in degrade fashion add light and glimmer along the body.
