Flowy fabrics, dreamy details and an inspiration that is derived from our favorite place in the world – the sea, are just some of the things that made us fall in love with Lee Grebenau’s new collection. The collection is named “Mother of Pearl” and it is inspired from the world of the sea with all the goods it has to offer; clams, pearl, ivory , corals , etc., and there is no doubt that these motifs are present in each and every dress.
Lee graduated with honors from the known Shenkar College of Design, and she has been designing couture evening and bridal gowns for over six years, with an emphasis on handmade work, fine fabrics, silhouette with transparencies, patterns and divine textures. All these are reflected in this 2016 collection where the dresses are full of handmade materials which combine pearls, shells and embroideries which simulate corals. The prominent colors in the collection also correspond the overall atmosphere with pearl-colored, ‘broken white’ to different types of gold and silver.
The usage of embedded crystals in the tulles, soft fabrics and sequined fabrics which were created specifically for the collection, project a soft look which reminds us of waves and unspoiled beaches. In order to add a more royal and dramatic touch, the designer used long trains and shimmering layers which are very familiar with Lee’s artistic hand.
There is no doubt that the new collection is dreamy and reminds us of the very best work done by our favorite designers overseas, and the prices are accordingly.
