Monique Lhuillier

Lhuillier’s brides aren’t looking for red carpet–worthy statements, but they do want a dress that feels personal and special. “While there is a resurrection of traditional dresses [happening now], brides still want to see things they’ve nev-er seen before,” says Lhuillier. “They’re ready to experiment.” For an interesting twist, Lhuillier introduced clever new illusion jackets and capes for the bride who wants to wear sleeves—but not necessarily all night.
