Pure Magnolia’s
2013 Wedding Dress Collection

Pure Magnolia's 2013 Wedding Dress Collection

Eco-friendly designer Patty Nayel of Pure Magnolia has just released her 2013 line and there’s lots to love. For one, the dresses are affordable with short styles starting at $300 up to $2,300 for a long lace gown, but most  designs are around the $1,000 mark. Pure Magnolia is also happy to mix and match fabrics to help bring down the cost of your custom-made dress. I asked Patty what the inspiration was behind this new collection and she said…

“… black and white movies and the goddesses of the silver screen. We wanted to go back to the 30’s and 40’s when fashion was very feminine. The clothes were very delicate and flowing and we wanted to bring a bit of that feeling into modern life. At the same time, we made sure that the fit of our dresses was very modern. The modern woman may want to look like a silver screen dream but she also wants to be able to lift her arms. It’s really about being beautiful without being merely decorative.”

I’ve chosen to feature some of my favourite styles from this new collection but before I get on with it… I asked Patty which of her new designs was her favourite…

“My favorite dress from this collection is the Fern Lace Dress. It has a vintage lace bodice and a tulle tea length skirt. We finished it with a satin ribbon and a belt buckle from the 40’s. I love this dress because we were able to incorporate vintage elements and create a dress that we really a marriage of two eras. (No pun intended.) It was so much fun to work with black in this collection and this dress is definitely not traditional bridal but it just looks like a good time on a hanger.”
