What better time to showcase a brand new designer, than our first week back in a brand new year?
An exciting new haute couture wedding dress brand that are already set as ones to watch for 2015.
With design focused dresses, fashion-forward shapes, contemporary details, and playful textures, Lakum are primed to become a go-to for trend-savvy brides looking for something stylish and unique for their wedding day.
But it doesn't just stop with the big day. Lakum have also created a trademark Suite of Looks with designs to take you from your engagement party to your rehearsal dinner to your post-wedding picnic. (The designs would also make gorgeous civil ceremony dresses too!)
But it's this debut collection where the new Brooklyn-based label really sets itself apart, with dresses that are as innovative as they are chic.
Conceived by designers Sathya Balakumar and Heather Green, who were inspired by their high-fashion backgrounds and cultural influences, to fuse heritage with modernity. They've used pure silks, printed lambskin, hand-beaded Indian appliqués to create red-carpet worthy wedding dresses.
And it's not just the designs that are modern, Lakum's website is entirely shopable, with all full pricing available – both of which, almost unheard of in couture bridal fashion – and best of all, brides can pay a nominal fee to try on several white muslin versions of the dresses at home, to ensure the right style and fit.
See, we told you we were excited! Now just wait until you see these dresses…
Aren't they fabulous. I just love the new silhouettes and the cool embellishments we don't normally see on bridal wear.
