Dar­ing & Del­i­cate

Select­ing the per­fect dress for your big day is no small feat. It gets a bit eas­ier and more ex­cit­ing, though, if you can get some ex­pert ad­vice. Dennis Latif had a chance to sit down with ac­claimed de­signer Al­bert Yan­uar, the man be­hind the “Al­bert Yanua

What are the dis­tinc­tive char­ac­ter­is­tics of an Al­bert Yan­uar dress? My de­signs are clas­sic as far as vol­ume and cut is con­cerned. But for the details and ap­pli­ca­tions my dresses are more into geo­met­ric, sym­met­ric and mod­ern. What are three words/phrases that can de­scribe your de­sign? Dar­ing, Del­i­cate and Full of fem­i­nism How do you choose a per­fect Wed­ding Dress for a pe­tite body? “For peo­ple who have small frames, I sug­gest choos­ing a more light-weight dress. Silk or­ganza or tulle would be the best ma­te­rial in this case. Keep in mind as well that all the details should be fo­cused on the up­per area of the dress, in or­der to add vol­ume in over­all ap­pear­ance and to make your body look fuller. Be care­ful, though, not to add too much de­tail be­cause it will make you look heavy and over­weight. What about plus size women? The A-line dress or semi-mer­maid dress with arms cov­ered in a very light ma­te­rial will be suit­able for full-sized ladies. What they should avoid is the ball gown kind of dress and too much de­tail: re­mem­ber less is more. What kind of Wed­ding Dress is suit­able for an out­door cer­e­mony? Light-weight ma­te­rial such as Tulle, Chiffon and Lace Sol­stice would be the best choice for out­door events. As for the dress style, I sug­gest a semi-mer­maid cut or just a sim­ple A-line. What else should be con­sid­ered when choos­ing a Wed­ding Dress? The vol­ume and length of the dress-tail should be ad­justed ac­cord­ing to the size of venue and bride’s body shape. Also, do a run­down of the event’s ac­tiv­i­ties: are there any chal­leng­ing sit­u­a­tions such as danc­ing or af­ter-party phys­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties? It also would be nice if the venue dec­o­ra­tion theme can be syn­chro­nized with the Wed­ding Dress. And last but not the least, make sure the par­ents’ dresses do not over­shadow the bride’s wed­ding dress! What are the Wed­ding Dress trends of 2017? Any tips? Skirt or Dress shape. This year there are lots of vari­a­tions on the dress shape. The vol­ume and size of the skirt are adapted to the pos­ture and body shape of the bride and can range from tulip to cir­cle to mer­maid-shape skirt. Color. Gone are the days when wed­ding dresses are pure white. There are many other choices and trends such as that com­bin­ing an off-white base with cham­pagne or sil­ver em­broi­dery details; or a nude color base with em­broi­dered off-white details. Details. Geo­met­ric, flo­ral, the­matic and full com­plex­ion are quite pop­u­lar this year. Hair Style. Trends this year are also var­ied, but lean to­ward the more mod­ern and sleek do’s, or a lit­tle bun, or the “messy” nat­u­ral look. Where do you usu­ally get in­spi­ra­tion for your de­signs? I re­search on Paris cou­ture trends and then make a mood board with my team to de­ter­mine the big theme for the col­lec­tions -- from bride cou­ture, readyto-wear, women’s wear and men’s wear. Our 2016 theme was Pea­cock; this year, we’re adopt­ing an Art Nou­veau sig­na­ture. What are your fa­vorite col­ors? And why? I have three dom­i­nant col­ors that I like: White, be­cause it sym­bol­izes pu­rity; Blue as it sym­bol­izes tran­quil­lity; and Pur­ple which sym­bol­izes strength.
