Since its inception in 2017, Markarian has been producing beautiful and whimsical gowns for brides and celebrities including Kerry Washington, Lizzo, Laura Dern, and even First Lady Jill Biden’s look at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration. Their romantic and ethereal styles are thoughtfully made with sustainability in mind. The Bridal Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2022 collection embodies the bride looking for a hint of nostalgia with a fresh twist. Here’s what the designer has to say about their latest collection:
The Markarian Spring / Summer 2022 Bridal Collection references the ornate detail and embellished opulence of late Renaissance portraiture cut in classic silhouettes of the 1950s. Each gown is nostalgic yet fresh, transporting you to a time where old-world elegance is infused with modern femininity. Ditsy jacquards, delicate bundles of silk organza floral appliques, pearl beaded laces, and exaggerated sashes bring layered textures to life for a playful take on classic romance.
“Feminine cuts take focus this season and are accessorized with dreamy headpieces made in a special collaboration with Gigi Burris Millinery,” says Alexandra O’Neill, founder and designer of Markarian. “We used fabrics and embellishments from our S/S2022 bridal gowns to effortlessly complement the beautiful accessories. Satin wrapped headbands, hand draped Swarovski pearl dotted silk bows and violettes, and wispy veils are all ethereal yet wearable.”
Markarian emphasizes versatility this season, with a diverse collection of gowns to suit today’s unique wedding celebrations. From minimal, refined silhouettes to beautifully embellished gowns, and a dreamy collaboration of accessories, Markarian has every type of bride covered for S/S2022. This season, Markarian evokes optimism, timelessness and aspiration with a standout collection of one-of-a-kind pieces that are sure to bring the modern bride’s dream to life.
