Rock On: Punk Rock Bride

There is always creativity in the world spurred on by the overwhelming need for something different. Thank goodness. That is what pushes Punk Rock Bride to create beautiful and unique wedding gowns. They want to speak loudly to a whole generation of young, urban brides that has been overlooked for some time, and they want to give them another option. Bravo! I love dresses that are unique yet still maintain classic styling. These gorgeous dresses are from their 2009 line. See more gowns on their web site. The second dress is my absolute fav.

Whimsy and Drama: Georges Chakra

Lebonese designer Georges Chakra was initially drawn to interior design. After two years of studies, he realized that his true love and passion was in fashion. So he went off to Canada to pursue a fashion degree at the Canadian Fashion Academy. His aesthetic is one that is consumed by color and whimsy and flow and drama. His gowns command attention. He has been presenting two collections at Paris Fashion Week since 2002. Here are my favorite dresses from his Spring/Summer 2009 Bridal collection. You can see his entire bridal collection on his web site. For more on his evening wear collection, check out the Designer Spotlight on Chakra.
