Royal Wedding Mother of the Bride Dress 2011: Blake and Company Blog

mother of the bride dressSo, as it turns out, the most famous wedding dress of the millennium, Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress, has been designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.   The wedding dress was selected because of its fine craftsmanship, beauty and because it is a product of Britain.

The dress itself featured a hand-engineered lace floral design.  Ivory satin material adorned the bodice.  The dress took several workers hours and hours to create.

However, while the wedding dress was spectacular, there is another outfit that caught our attention here at Blake and Company.  The outfit that caught our attention is the one worn by Carole Middleton, the mother of the bride.

The mother of the bride outfit was a beautiful sky.  Apparently, it turns out that the mother of the bride changed her mind at the last minute and ditched the mother of the bride outfit designed by designer Lindka Cierach.  It is rumored that after several months and several secret fittings, the mother of the bride, Carole Middleton, opted for a different mother of the bride outfit leaving the original mother of the bride designer stunned.

It is predicted that as the Royal Wedding was being broadcast, mother of the bride dress designers and wedding dress designers were busy making replicas.  It is highly likely that similarly styled designs will be featured in the months to come.

Kate Middleton’s Wedding Gown Designer Announced? Who is the Designer of Kate Middelton’s Wedding Dress?

who-is-kate-middletons-wedding-dress-designerThe Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is just weeks away and there is still much speculation as to who designed the wedding dress.  It seems that the Royal Family still has not confirmed it publicly, but insiders think that Libélula designer Sophie Cranston is the special occasion dress designer of choice.  Middleton has worn other Cranston designs in the past, and may have chosen Cranston for what some are calling the the most influential special occasion dress of the century.

Some special occasion dress insiders speculated that the designer Kate Middleton chose would be either Sarah Burton, Bruce Oldfield or Alice Temperley.  Here at Blake and Company, we were rooting for Daymor Couture, Damianou, Ideas by Barbara, SIA SIA, Scaravelli, JSS Knitwear or VM by Mori Lee

It is also predicted that there will be more than one dress just in case something happens to the first dress.  It is speculated that the designer has not been officially named is to protect the designer from a media frenzy.  You just can’t pay for that kind of publicity in the world of special occasion dress designers.

It is a huge responsibility to create such an unforgettable gown that is certain to be seen by billions around the world.  This special occasion dress is sure to be emulated and immortalized in royal and fashion history.

There are only 2 weeks left before the Royal Wedding and the fashion world waits with baited breath for the special occasion dress of the century to be unveiled.  Bridal industry and special occasion dress insiders predict Middleton’s gown to be replicated many times over as soon as the world gets its first glimpse.

Special Occasion Dresses and Mother of the Bride Dresses Made in the USA: JSS Knitwear at Blake and Company NYC

Special occasion dresses are a matter of personal taste.  Mother of the bride dresses should fit a woman’s personal style.  One of the biggest names in fashion, Oscar de la Renta recently made news when he questioned First Lady Michelle Obama’s decision to wear a dress by a British designer to a state dinner in honor of Chinese President Hu Jintao.

JSS Knitwear Special Occasion Dress USABorn in the Dominican Republic, de la Renta’s gowns are made in the United States.

When it comes down to it, de la Renta might have a point since the purpose of the visit was to promote American-Chinese trade.  There are plenty of American special occasion dress designers that Mrs. Obama could have selected.  Among the top special occasion dress designers that are made in the USA is JSS Knitwear.

JSS Knitwear offers a wide selection of special occasion dresses and outfits that can be worn day into evening.  JSS Knitwear features knit separates, suits and special occasion dresses. The clothes in JSS Knitwear’s line fit great for all sizes.  JSS Knitwear offers both missy and plus sizes as well.  JSS Knitwear has a variety of colors available and the entire line is made in the USA.

Special occasion dresses are a big industry in this country and de la Renta feels that it would be a good idea for Mrs. Obama to do something to help the special occasion dress industry in America.  De la Renta said “We need to create jobs here, create jobs on Seventh Avenue, too.”

When asked about de la Renta’s comments, Mrs. Obama shrugged it off “Women, wear what you love. That’s all I can say. That’s my motto.”

The truth is that Mrs. Obama has the power to set a fashion agenda, and by wearing a special occasion dress by particular designer, she can create a market demand.  Mrs. Obama has a reputation for being one of the most stylish First Ladies ever to live in the White House.  It may be a good idea for her to wear special occasion dresses that can help the US economy.  By the way, buying good that are made in the USA is a policy initiative pushed by her husband’s administration.

Daymor Couture’s Mother of the Bride Dress for Blake and Company Featured in Brides.com Article

Daymor’s new mother of the bride dress for Blake and Company was featured in a recent Brides.com article.  Today’s brides are urged to reassure their moms that it is indeed possible to find stylish, non-matronly mother-of-the-bride dresses.  Daymor’s mother of the bride line for Blake and Company proves that mother of the bride dresses can fit almost any price range.  Brides.com was inspired by five real mothers of the brides to find mother of the bride dresses that suited their personal styles.

Daymor Mother of the Bride Dress 1033A mother of the bride with a goal of looking modern should consider slim, fluid lines, a sophisticated hue, and a unique neckline. However, to ensure that the mother of the bride dress is modern, an unusual silhouette, neckline, or sleeve treatment carries more weight than the color of the special occasion dress.

If the mother of the bride is looking for an elegant mother of the bride dress, a good suggestion is to go for a floor-length gown.  The color of the mother of the bride dress that was recommended by the Brides.com article was a dark chocolate hue.  Daymor’s taffeta dress style 1033 for Blake and Company was featured in the elegant mother of the bride dress section of the Brides.com article.

Mother of the brides who are searching for something glamorous would do well selecting a black silk satin mother of the bride dress. Swarovski crystal embellishments were also suggested to make the mother of the bride dress truly stand out as luxurious.  A strapless neckline and matching jacket may be just what the mother of the bride dress needs to achieve the glamorous look.

Wholesale Mother of the Bride Dresses Get Inspired by Wedding Gown Exhibit

Wholesale Dress Collection

Calling all special occasion dresses and mother of the bride wholesalers!  The event of the century is upon us – and no, it’s not Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s wedding!  It’s not even in Hollywood, Bollywood or New York for that matter… It’s in Cincinnati, Ohio of all places.

Wedded Perfection: Two Centuries of Wedding Gowns, is a brand new exhibit at the Cincinnati Art Museum.

Just like history, fashion repeats itself – and it may be a good idea to take in a history lesson before trying to predict the next styles that will shape the latest fashion trends.  The exhibit is a showcase of beautiful dresses over the past 200 years.

Mother of the bride and mother of the groom wholesalers should take note that it is important to know where you came from before you can understand where you are going.

The wedding dresses, some of which are encrusted with pearls, silver and gold may provide a wealth of information to those designing the latest special occasion dresses of 2010.

There must be something to inspire the mother of the bride wholesalers in the collection of 60 special occasion gowns that will be on display.  Many famous designers will be on display including gowns by Christian Dior and even some Presidential flair represented in dresses worn by President Nixon’s daughters.

The gowns have distinct features that combine informality and elegance.  Today’s mother of the bride dress designers may get some fashion ideas from the various sheens of thread and intricate embroidery included in the gowns.

The old bridal custom to incorporate “something old” and “something new” may work out for wholesale dress designers as they utilize the dresses of the past to design the next line of the special occasion dresses of the future.

Roberto Cavalli’s Anniversary Party and His Inspiration to Special Occasion Dress Designers

Special Occasion Dresses Roberto Cavalli

Cavalli’s vision will surely continue to inspire the finest designers for years to come.

Celebrity Weddings took a back seat earlier this week, as Roberto Cavalli celebrated the 40th Anniversary of his company in Paris with an over-the-top anniversary bash!  Over one thousand guests including the likes of Taylor Swift, Naomi Campbell, Janet Jackson and Heidi Klum attended and partied the night away.

The guests dressed in stunning occasion gowns and beautiful dresses that would make Hillary Clinton’s mother of the bride dress look like something off the rack at Walmart.  In the meantime, those privileged enough to be invited chowed down on exotic foods and sipped expensive champagne.  The room was the size of a football field and was decorated with lovely arrangements of flowers and large topiaries.

The celebration honored Roberto Cavalli and his most notable contributions to the fashion world which include animal-printed evening gowns, distressed denim, and a method of printing and patching different fabrics together.  Cavalli’s designs have inspired special occasion dresses and mother of the bride dresses since the mid 1990’s when he burst onto the scene with his exquisite dress designs for the affluent partygoer looking to get noticed.

Cavalli has worked with many of the world’s leading fashion houses including Pierre Cardin and Hermes.  Roberto Cavalli’s clothing and accessories can be found in over 50 countries all over the world.

Cavalli’s vision will surely continue to inspire the finest designers for years to come.
