Since she was just 18 years old, Liz Martinez has been designing stunning couture bridal gowns. This Israeli designer is known for redefining bridal and her FW 2022 collection does not disappoint. Inspired by the elegance and beauty of Italy, the “Bella Donna” collection features glamorous creations with unique materials and daring silhouettes. Here’s what the Liz Martinez team has to say about their latest:
For centuries, Italy has been considered the birthplace of elegance, beauty and sophistication. From the days of the Roman Empire to the Renaissance, to the birth of New Wave Italian Cinema and stars such as Sophia Loren, Marcello Mastroianni, and Federico Fellini.
Italy also personifies the quintessential modern woman — classy and innovative, timeless and contemporary, effortless and opulent. It’s no wonder Liz Martinez, Israeli couture bridal designer, has been drawn back to this place, time and time again, for its majestic style and timeless inspiration. “Bella Donna”, Martinez’s latest collection of 19 stunning bridal gowns, was inspired by and shot on location in Italy, on the shimmering shores of Lake Bolsena.
Surrounded by majestic cobblestone streets, lively piazzas, and the awe-inspiring Basilica of Saint Christina, each one of Liz Martinez’s gowns tells a story – one of endless wonder, of lively playfulness, and of dazzling elegance. She’s clearly pushed the envelope and her design expertise yet again – crafting even more daring silhouettes and introducing the use of innovative laser-cut leather fabrics for the very first time. Yet she still maintains her signature style: flowy sheer tulle layering, alabaster tones, and bedazzling embroidered crystals, pearls, and 3D floral motifs.
From plunging necklines to off-the-shoulder asymmetrical looks, each gown is supremely crafted, exquisitely elegant, and breathtakingly beautiful. It captures the spirit of Italy and the essence of femininity in such an effortless way – we can’t wait to see where Liz Martinez’s inspiration takes her next.
