How many weddings are you going to this summer? I’m going to six. And you can bet every bride is going to be wearing something very different. That’s the most fun part, no? Seeing how the dress reflects the bride’s personality.
Mad props to the brides who go bold and wear couture-style gowns, like those in Jason Matlo’s latest collection.
As the Vancouver-based designer prepared for his runway presentation at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia (he’s showing the models how to strut their stuff in the photo above), he shared how this collection came to be — the joys (employing couture techniques) and the pains (employing couture techniques).
“It’s bridal-themed but very loosely bridal-themed,” he says. In other words, you could wear these dresses to tie the knot, but you don’t have to be a bride to wear them — with their darker colours and rich embellishments, they’d look just as beautiful if you’re simply tying a knot…in your hair.

P.S. I visited Jason Matlo’s studio in preparation for a segment on CTV a little while ago and you’ll find it right here.
