Lana recommends: Rami Kadi’s new Bridal Collection

Rising Lebanese designer Rami Kadi was born in the US and grew up in Lebanon where he enrolled in Esmod Beirut to pursue fashion design. After gaining experience by working with amazingly great haute couture designers like Rabih Kayrouz and Georges Chakra, Rami opened his first Boutique in May 2011.

I personally wouldn’t be writing about Rami if it wasn’t for the admiration I have of his couture design and the peculiar efforts put on handmade details. It’s a revisited view of luxurious couture.

Summer is commonly known to be the wedding season. This is why, today’s post brings in Rami Kadi’s SS12 bridal collection. Some of you now reading might be brides-to-be or might have friends/family members getting married and believe me, this post is for you.

I have picked my favorite designs from this collection. Thus, the below selection is very personal. I love how every bride can find something she would love to wear on her big day in this collection. Shades are between white, beige, gold, silver and even pink. As for the cuts and the use of fabrics, every single dress in UNIQUE. This is really no exaggeration, you will be able to see that in the pictures.

About the styling: I like how every dress is portrayed with different jewelry and a specific hairstyle. These details really help the bride-to-be conceptualize what she’s really looking for.
