Berta Spring 2016 Inspiration
The inspiration for Berta's Spring 2016 collection came chiefly from the 18th century in Western Europe. Those days were the aftermath of the French Revolution - a time when women started feeling more comfortable about themselves and began wearing more figure flattering clothing. Fashion was still influenced by royalty, but women embarked on celebrating their femininity and natural beauty more than ever before. Berta focused on this magical era. Acclaimed for designing figure hugging silhouettes, Berta synthesized her styling with the fashion-forward movement of the 18th century. The outcome was grand regal elegance. The complexity of the cuts and the elite craftsmanship are distinguished.
Strictly Weddings is honored to have the U.S. unveiling of her new collection. Without further ado, we present each style with its detailed description.
