If only three words could describe the bridal gowns from Australian label J’Aton Bride, they would be something along the lines of, “dramatic,” “structural,” and “precise.” Between the stunning contrast of textures and the impeccable artistry in the details, the Fall/Winter 2018 collection was made for brides searching for a wedding gown with high-impact and a couture finish.
J’Aton’s drop-waist number provides a gorgeous contrast between a sleek, fitted bodice and a billowing skirt with airy, petal-like layers falling into a dreamy cascade. While these layers offer the movement and volume of a traditional ballgown, the beaded corsetry of the bodice brings a more daring element to the dress. Diamond drop earrings by Jude Frances complement the waistline, and a pave wedding band from Tiffany & Co. stands up to the overall drama of the ensemble.
The J’Aton bride also has the option of choosing one or the other in terms of fairytale glamour and modern sophistication. A romantic bridal gown with short puffed sleeves conjures images of an Edwardian princess – perfect for a destination wedding in a French chateau.
Alternatively, J’Aton’s body-skimming number with a plunging neckline and front slit makes for an unexpected and unforgettable grand entrance. The beadwork mimics the texture of lace, and the gown would look especially at-home in a cosmopolitan setting. Think weddings at the Pierre Hotel in New York City, or the Waldorf Astoria in Chicago.
Displaying the designer’s eye for detail and savviness for illusion, we love the beautiful structure of the J’Aton beaded gown with floating collar and sweetheart bodice. Precise placement of each embellishment creates a geometric effect while looking as if the entire number was dripped in pearls – especially the sleeves, which feature beaded tassels. Remove the collar and sleeves for the reception, and you’ll be set with a second bridal look.
