Fiorenza 2012 Bridal Collection

The latest bridal collection from Fiorenza is a dream come true.

Fourth-generation designer Pina Fiorenza says that the 2012 collection is “a culmination of eras coming together.” She also dedicated it to her mother, an Italian widow with two young children who immigrated to Australia and became known for creating wonderful dresses.

The collection holds deeper meaning for Pina, as it marks the fourth anniversary of her mum’s passing: “I found myself reflecting on the fact that, despite possessing great strength, she never lost her soft femininity; raising two children in a foreign-speaking country while forging a successful career.”

It’s clear that fashion is in the family – her aunt also founded one of Italy’s first design schools, her cousin works with Valentino, and her sister is a famous couturist in Melbourne.

Here’s a sneak peek at the lovely wedding dresses from the Fiorenza 2012 Bridal collection…

“Every year I speak to over 500 brides around Australia, and so in designing this collection I reflected on their feedback, and I revisited the gowns I’ve created over the past two decades,” Pina says.

“I then merged these two influences to create beautiful, simple, core designs that are the best of the best; the lines are soft and fun but the patterns are strong, deliberate and complex.”

The bespoke fabrics and couture detailing are just to die for! We love the 1940s and 50s inspiration for this collection, and the fact that the designs are vintage yet still very fresh and elegant.

The Fiorenza 2012 Bridal Collection will be available in January 2012. Fiorenza has its own stores and is carried by stockists all over Australia. For more wedding inspiration, visit their online shop.
