Face Off: Filipino Bridal Collection 2012 (Part 1)

This event is really every bride-to-be’s dream. Imagine watching a fashion show featuring the most beautiful wedding gowns, made by the best designers of the Philippines. Face Off Filipino Bridal Collection 2012 was not only a visual treat, it was a clear indicator of the latest trends in bridal wear. If you were newly engaged and wanted to get ideas for your wedding dress, this would be the best fashion show to watch. At least that was what was running through my head as I saw one stunning dress after the other walk down that runway. Watching the show kind of made me wish I was still in the beginning stages of planning my wedding, so I could go with a different design. Or that I had the budget for three wedding gowns, ala Kim Kardashian.

40 gorgeous wedding dresses were showcased that night. I really didn’t know where to look, because each gown was beautifully and very intricately made. I wanted to examine every detail, and from what I saw the lot were impeccably made. Let me share with you photos I took at the show. Who knows, this might get you inspired for your big day (I know I am).

Right before the show started.

Those veils were pretty.

This glittery number was a show-stopper.

I want this dress, but not necessarily for my wedding.

Its really a sheer dress if you look closely.

I like how he combined gold, champagne and blue for this dress.

Its refreshing to see blue on a wedding dress.

The back is just as beautiful.

Patrice Ramos-Diaz.

I like how the mid-section was highlighted in this dress.

It reminds me of a swan.


One last look.

Side by side.

Beautiful gowns.

Lit up.
