Astral Sundholm Hayes: Silhouette Collection 2013
Bridal emporium Circa Vintage Brides launches its glamorous new Silhouette Collection of bridal and evening gowns for 2012/13. The collection is available via appointment only at the recently opened boutique in Richmond.
This exciting Vintage inspired collection with references of past decades combined with the designer Astral Sundholm-Hayes cutting skills focusing on strong lines and delicate details outlines a contemporary edge for today’s brides.
This beautiful range of gowns is sophistication personified with classic shapes that exquisitely flatter the female form. Dresses cut on the bias create movement and the traditional empire line gives an ethereal Grecian tone to the collection in wonderfully delicate fabrics including silk satin, silk georgette, silk crepe, silk taffeta and delicate lace which are all lined in silk.
