Japanese-style wedding dresses

Japanese-style wedding dresses

With all the new 2010 collections, we’re seeing lots of new styles and wedding trends for 2010. Last year, the empire waist style was big, as were Greek-inspired lines, but this year we’re seeing influence from much further afield: Japanese-style dresses seem to be one of the most exciting things in bridal at the moment.

Reem Acra’s Fall 2010 collection is just one of the examples of the careful use of the strict folds and angles of Japanese style. Elegant and mystical at the same time, Japanese culture brings an unusual and unique beauty to any look and is proving especially beautiful in bridal.

Kimono-inspired pieces and clothes in wild silk are just some of the touches on the catwalk. Tighter, mermaid-style skirts are also reminiscent of a Japanese look as are wider sleeves. Here are some examples of Japanese-style wedding dresses that have appeared on our catwalks recently.

The hems of these dresses are gathered, which makes the bride move geisha-style. We can also see from the photos below the style for wedding dresses with sleeves, which again represent traditionally Japanese angles.
