The occasion: A wedding
The couple: Ignacio and Gabriela
The location: Managua, Nicaragua
The date: March 2012
Lesly Blandón, designer of BLANDÓN, was offered the opportunity and honor of designing the wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses for one of his very close and intimate friends, Gabriela Fernandez. The event would take place in Lesly’s native country and city of Managua, Nicaragua. Gabriela currently resides in Spain and her new husband is Spaniard. It came with no surprise when she requested a wedding gown with some ‘spanish/flamenco flare’ details, yet at the same time modern. The gown was made from exquisite silk embroidered chiffon in ivory. The dress was designed with strap-less shoulders and an uneven heme in layers making it shorter in the front, longer and fuller in the back allowing to showcase a selected pair of vibrant purple Roger Vivier stilettos with a satin rose detail. A mantilla veil with a flamenco headpiece adorned the brides head completing the modern-spanish/flamenco wedding gown and making the bride truly breath-taking. OLÉ!
The bridesmaid dresses were designed and created from stretch silk charmeuse in purple. The one shoulder, ruffle collar detail dress added to the spanish/flamenco theme.
