EV­ERY woman dreams of the per­fect wed­ding and, of course, a per­fect bri­dal dress to match. And when it comes to the per­fect bri­dal dress, a finely-tai­lored and breath­tak­ing piece by a pop­u­lar de­signer or cou­turier will first come to mind.

How­ever, such a cus­tom-made piece usu­ally comes with a hefty price tag, so the bride-to-be’s dream re­mains a dream.

Well, fret not. A rep­utable home­grown de­signer la­bel may make your wish come true. Its ready-to-wear bri­dal col­lec­tion comes with a price tag that is easy on the pocket.

Jo­vian White, a dif­fu­sion line by cel­e­brated cou­turier Jo­vian Mandagie, fea­tures 10 stun­ning looks rang­ing from a sim­ple yet chic mod­ern baju ku­rung as well as pe­plum, mer­maid and cape dresses to flow­ing, floor-sweep­ing gowns that will turn heads.

In soft white and pas­tel pink colours, the col­lec­tion is in­spired by the cherry blos­som and rein­vented in min­i­mal and or­nate styles.

With sculp­tural sil­hou­ettes and em­bel­lish­ments, the ar­ray of bri­dal pieces is im­bued with a con­tem­po­rary yet clas­sic feel.

Touch of style and el­e­gance.

Jo­vian’s sig­na­ture touch is ap­par­ent in this stun­ning piece.

cut and fem­i­nine styles are ap­par­ent in each look, with min­i­mal but in­tri­cate em­broi­dery and bead­ing work to match.

Some of the gar­ments are also ver­sa­tile, mak­ing them suit­able for other oc­ca­sions too.

The un­com­pro­mis­ing qual­ity and com­fort of the dresses are crafted us­ing ma­te­ri­als such as crepe, Ital­ian luxe chif­fon, and French lace and tulle, re­flect­ing a hint of el­e­gance, grace and fem­i­nin­ity.

Jo­vian White is the first ready-towear bri­dal col­lec­tion of the home­grown fash­ion brand. Its first ready-towear line was launched in 2012.

The ready-to-wear bri­dal col­lec­tion, says Mandagie, was in­spired by cus­tomers who wore his Hari Raya col­lec­tions as their en­gage­ment or wed­ding dresses.

Each dress re­tails be­tween RM699 and RM1,499 while a veil costs be­tween RM399 and RM599.

Jo­vian White is avail­able at JS­tore Bangsar and JS­tore Shah Alam and at www.jo­vian.com.my/shop
