Once Upon A Dream: Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 Collection Debuts This Weekend

What's the connection between Monique Lhuillier's long awaited Spring 2015 collection and famed American artist John Singer Sargent? The ethereal nature of his portraits, which includes the elegant and mysterious Madame X (below), served as the inspiration for the entire collection.

You may recall that we first brought this collection to you during our behind-the-scenes reporting at bridal market in New York City back in April, and now we're thrilled to finally welcome these stunning gowns in store.

Described as "'[an] ethereal dream" by Monique Lhuillier herself, the Spring 2015 Collection features tulle, Chantilly lace, intricate beading and embroideries. Silhouettes range from mermaid styles to architectural shapes. The collection also features whimsical pastel options in shades of blush, pistachio, and mist.

For this collection, the designer certainly favored the embroidered tulle gowns in a strapless A-line cut with matching shrugs, as well as timeless strapless styles, replete with tiered tulle and lace appliqué skirt.

This Friday and Saturday, we will host a dedicated Trunk Show to showcase Monique Lhuillier's complete Spring 2015 Collection. Chic brides are encouraged to reserve an appointment soon, as this will be one of our premier Trunk Shows for 2014.

As you may know, Chic Parisien is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year. If you haven't already, be sure to check out our Facebook page, where we are posting key milestones, memories and highlights from the past four and a half decades for 45 consecutive days. As part of the celebration, we'd also like to salute our dear friend, Monique, whose designs we've been privileged to carry in store for many years.

We hope you will join us this Friday and Saturday. We look forward to seeing you there!
