Romona Keveza has successfully been able to design two bridal labels with distinctively different points of view — both of which she showed this season in her intimate penthouse overlooking Rockefeller Plaza. Legends Romona Keveza was up first. Here, she focused on timeless pieces that are convertible, allowing the bride to have two individual looks: elegant, classic gowns perfect for the wedding ceremony — and a sexy party number when the overskirt is removed. In looks ranging from whimsical to sleek, Keveza worked her hand with delicate lace, frothy tulle and beautiful re-embroidered lace appliqués. Among the sea of white, she also gave a nod to love with a bold red corset gown in garden lace.
The designer continued her bold approach with her Romona Keveza Collection line. Here, she worked her voluminous gowns in painterly Tuscan garden prints that were unexpected and quite beautiful. For the more traditional bride, she showed ethereal goddess gowns, while for the modern bride she offered styles with clean architectural lines and metal belts. Keveza also channeled an aristocratic vibe with classic Chantilly lace gowns featuring intricate beading and crystal buttons.
