May 2016 White Gallery London – Martina Liana
We caught up with the beautiful Martine Harris, Chief Creative Office and Head Designer of Martina Liana at The White Gallery London and this is what she had to say:-
Q: Tell us about your new Fall 2016 collection:
Fall 2016 is all about taking traditional looks to the next level. From modern clean lines to vintage-inspired beading, every detail has been flawlessly taken into consideration. Modern lacework, plunging necklines, and innovative textures are just some of the features on our newest styles. And, as always, every Martina Liana gown is 100% available for custom changes – every element of the design, including fabric, colour, and beading is open for a bride’s reinterpretation. Custom options are encouraged by the designer, allowing Martina Liana to deliver a truly couture experience for its brides.
Our Together.Forever. collection continues to be a favourite among brides, and this season there are 13 new styles to introduce! 6 new styles of corsets and bodices, 5 new skirt options, plus a new mini-dress, and a long-sleeved lace jacket! From chic and simple to sheer and sexy – the new separates showcase a variety of options perfect for those wanting a truly custom look. Keeping with the superb internal construction and fit of our traditional gowns, every separate allows a bride to not only be seamlessly shaped and feel secure while wearing the gown, but also experience a high level of comfort with every movement. Martina Liana truly believes that luxurious fabrics combined with a comfortable fit are the key to looking and feeling flawless on your wedding day.
Q: What design details will we see within the new collection?
This season we are focusing on reinterpreting classic dress details such as exposed boning, unexpected textures and volume, illusion tulle backs and, of course, lace! As always, it’s the details that really make each dress a unique work of art. High necklines, golden hues and high-low hemlines all give a modern update to traditional looks. We have carefully matched the perfect details to the perfect design, allowing a bride to show off their personal style in a new and on-trend way. Our new collection continues to emphasize what makes Martina Liana special – that every detail, no matter how small, deserves its own focus and attention.
Q: Describe Martina Liana’s Fall 2016 Collection in one word:
How about two words? “Defy Tradition!” In 2016, we have been seeing an amazing convergence of styles – giving a bride endless ways to find their own look within today’s trends. With new hemlines, unexpectedly sexy backs and the continued domination of lace – Martina Liana is reinterpreting traditional looks into the modern gown of your dreams.
As we know, it’s the details that make the difference between an amazing gown and a dream gown. The details within every Martina Liana design – whether a gown or a separate – use only the finest fabrics, luxurious Swarovski crystal beading, comfortable internal construction, and the most glamorous lace. All of this allows Martina Liana to deliver a truly couture experience within an affordable price point, making it a perfect choice for both retailers and brides.
