Before the lights dimmed at her show, Mira Zwillinger said she was seeing stars while designing her spring line. To be more specific, it was actually stardust that inspired her and her daughter Lihi, who also works on the collection. “This season we saw our brides sparkling, shimmering and gleaming. For a bride, this is her opportunity to feel like she is in a fairy tale,” said the Tel Aviv-based designer, pointing out the silvery, light gray shades used for many of the spring gowns.
To play up the celestial theme, the duo used up to five for one gown, going heavy on the beads, lace and appliqués. A sleeveless silk organza dress with guipure floral lace and sequins and an illusion neckline opened the show. Another noteworthy look was a blush-hued strapless layered tulle dress with hand-embroidered flowers and an organza bow belt. And the Zwillingers’ take on what they described as an “angel” was a shimmery top with a layered tulle skirt cinched with a crystal-encrusted, embroidered organza bow belt.
