Austin Scarlett 2016 Bridal

Project Runway's Austin Scarlett presented his 2016 bridal collection on Oct. 12.

Austin Scarlett can always be counted on for exquisite wedding gowns.  This season he is truly producing a few steps ahead of the rest. Scarlett presented a collection for bridal week pulling out all the stops- hand painted gowns, with removable trains, detachable capes,  among many other interchangeable designs for the modern bride who wants two dresses. He's really thought of everything. 

Austin's use of color and texture is unique and fresh. Pink trim, silver shadow, silver satin...he's really pushing himself as a designer and it's brilliant- his first look entitled "Trillium" is a silk basketweave strapless column gown with sculpted spiraling in the back-a surprise that will make you gasp with exhilaration. (My favorite of the collection.) the material is mesmerizing, up close it looks so intricate - from afar so soft. 

"Mayfair" another brides dream was a silk ball gown made in silk organza with hand painted flowers. Although the dress is available in pink, ivory and white the bride can customize the hand-painted florals in a color of her choice...perhaps to match the wedding's color scheme.

I have always appreciated the architecture of Scarlett's apparel, and now that I am going to be a bride myself, I must say my perspective is even more enthralled with his designs. I'm realizing what a special designer Austin Scarlett is and how lucky each bride that wears his gowns is. I want to be one if those Brides. Thank you for a beautiful showing Austin Scarlett and team. As always you astound me.
