Designer Anya Ostapenko was born in wintry Russia, but moved down under to sunny Australia at a very young age to enjoy warm summers and surf. The vast cultural differences started a passion for travel, always for pleasure first and then for business. Her curious eye propelled her into photography too, allowing her to express herself through the lens and capture beautiful moments whilst adventuring. During her travels she met strong females from all walks of life, inspiring her to create for these women. After concentrating on bridal accessories for the past four years, she couldn’t help but give in to the desire to expand into the gown sector and channel her creativity in that way.
As you can see from the images above, L’eto Bridal chose to photograph this collection in a nostalgic golden glow of a luxurios seaside retreat. The rural landscape and geometric structures of the house made a stark background that allowed the delicate textures, soft wispy fabrics, and light embellishment of the dresses to shine. Add in the silhouettes reminiscent of past decades, plunging necklines, and decorations of metallic thread and crystal fronds and you see the stunning result!
As you slip on each dress, you will find that each lends a distinct attitude to the bride; assuring her that yes, you look beautiful, and you know it. We have to warn you that with these wonderful choices, it may be hard picking just one from this fabulous collection!
