Valerie and Her Week Of Wonders is a 1970s film that narrates a story about a girl who experiences her first period. This is followed by a series of events in a matter of a week that are both amazing and scary. Getting married is equally scary yet amazing for a woman and the brand Odylyne The Ceremony has tried to convey the same through its newest bridal collection.
Puff-Sleeves Were All the Rage
Stephanie White, the designer, was inspired by this classic-cult movie and also titled her collection ‘Her Week Of Wonders.’ The wedding collection launched at the Bridal Fashion Week in New York included six looks that exuded both an ethereal as well as a witchy aesthetic. There was a youthful feel to the collection with its silhouettes and soft textures. The gowns with puff sleeves stood out.
A Creative Brand
White said that she had been designing this collection with these sleeves since 2017 even though the billowy sleeves are trending only now. A bride had requested it back then and she decided to make it part of her collection. This unusual style is not surprising as the brand Odylyne The Ceremony has been known to add a creative twist to traditional ballgowns since its inception.
Odylyne The Ceremony Creates Gowns for the Dreamers
Apart from celebrating playfulness and youthfulness, the brand also loves creating gowns for brides who love a little fantasy. Just like the ‘Her Week Of Wonders’ collection, her inspirations come from books and movies she cherished when she was a child. She says that she wants brides to feel a sense of magic in their gowns. Furthermore, the pandemic changed the expectations of many brides. They are giving traditional white gowns a miss and are now looking for something new. White said that with brides exploring alternatives, brands need to evolve too and match these expectations.
