Lessons on Devotion from 'Gone With the Wind'

As a society, we need to take a step back and learn from our historical past; we must remember the love letters we read as young adults in school that belonged to lovers years ago.

Models walked down the loft-like runway in traditional silhouettes that were accented with edge: geometric acetate details, feather appliques and sequined lace trim. “Inspiration came from the materials and details.

That close attention to detail is what drew gasps from the crowd, as couture designs paired with romantic icy beauty looks marched down the brightly lit room. “I like to get fun and really enjoy the whole process. I don’t like the traditional, so I create my bridal with a fashion point of view. I don’t like typical traditional flowers, lace, poufy dresses just because it’s what bridal is ‘supposed,’ to be. I like to break a little bit of rules,” he said with a grin. “People are afraid to experiment and to really play with but my bridal is about that. The Angel Sanchez bride is modern and fashion-forward.”
