Clean and Easy with the Ilia Gown

Clean, Modern Lines

We love the way this bride-to-be styled the Ilia gown with unexpected pops of black while still using a fairly traditional bridal color palette. It only takes a few details to totally change the vibe of your look. Take Ilia for example! The curve hugging trumpet silhouette is also classically “bridal,” but the angular seams that cut across the bodice, hips, and booty throw her firmly into the modern realm!

The Monarch Collection: Behind the Scenes

Inspired by the delicate airiness of butterflies, the Carol Hannah 2018 collection is a study in intricacy, movement, and fluttering layers. Featuring gold metallic Italian embroidery, handmade abstract tulle wing embellishments, and a soft palette of romantic colors, the Monarch collection encourages us to take flight. 

Behold, the behind the scenes from our runway show! This labor of love would't be possible without all of the hands that make up the team here at Carol Hannah. Special thanks all the ladies who make the dresses, sell the dresses, love the dresses, buy the dresses, and support me and my craft in all the ways.  We can't wait to see you in these beauties!
