Wedding Collection 2008 by Lilit MargaryanWith the support of Armenian Fashion Council, fashion designer Lilit Margaryan has organized the photo session of her new Wedding Collection 2008.

Dresses in the new collection are both ingenuously romatic and glamourous, flirty and dramatic, saturated with handbeading, lace embelisshment, 3D florals and sophisticated draping. Full skirts with sheer lace corsetry have some retro sense, elegant body cons with extra long trains remind of a mermaid. From snow white to creamy, pearly and peachy colours the fabrics are enreached with decorative ornamentation. Bridals are layered and sculptures in imaginary shapes while evening gowns, in silver, black, turquoise, are curvilinear, accentuating eternal femininity peculiar Lilit’s designs.

Photo session took place at Golden Palace Hotel’s Presidential Suite, and we want to thank the management of the hotel for their support and patience.
