Spring 2023 Marchesa Bridal Couture is inspired by the ethereal and dreamy floral installation photography of Joe Horner (Knaresborough, England 1991-). Horner’s seductive visuals are carefully composed live flowers collaged against cotton-like clouds, mirrored backgrounds, or immersed in water, sometimes immortalized in frozen blocks. His artwork is a celebration of shape, depth, texture, detail and the pure beauty and love of flowers.
Dahlias, roses on the vine, and meadowy wildflowers are seen throughout the collection in a joyful ode to flowers – as seen in Horner’s most passionate work. Delicate threadwork embroidery enriched with softly shimmering beads, and 3D petals adorn a wide and flattering range of lightweight and versatile silhouettes. With crisp faille, soft sculptural duchess satin, and tulle and lace as a canvas, each look is embraced in a unique effortless glamour that celebrates love, romance, and beauty.
