We’re bound to see one of these gowns by Marchesa at the forthcoming Oscars in March, but will we see the designs transferred into the bridal world? I do hope so!

The rather angelic autumn/winter 2012 collection was inspired by a 1879 portrait painting ‘ A Soul Brought to Heaven’ by William Adolphe Bourgueraus. The show was a dreamlike spectacular with floaty, ott ball gowns that will make any woman the belle of the ball – her wedding!

Be ready for winter brides to look for embroidery, lace, feathers, more lace, tulle… and did I mention lace?
