It was a feathered, hand-dyed purple ombre frock that first set our hearts aflutter and launched our love affair with Kelly Faetanini. For her Spring 2016 bridal collection, the designer returned to her plumed roots, showcasing ball-gown and cocktail skirts bedecked in soft, fluffy feathers.
Plumage wasn't the only trend to make an appearance on Faetanini's catwalk: the recent bridal market presentation also showcased wedding gowns with sheer details, open backs, jeweled straps, and frothy, flirty tulle skirts. On a beauty note, we love the models' pretty ponytails and fresh-faced makeup: dewy skin, gold-dusted eyes, and coral-kissed lips.
