Ves­selina Pentcheva

Modern, el­e­gant and so­phis­ti­cated, ves­sel in a Pentcheva’s soughtafter evening and wed­ding gowns are what fairy tales are made of.

Glamour (South Africa) - - Style -

I’m cur­rently obsessed with flo­rals and gar­den themes, which I’d like to in­cor­po­rate into the brand’s sig­na­ture style. We like to keep our dresses whim­si­cal and ro­man­tic with lots of at­ten­tion to de­tail. We also love to play with del­i­cates – lay­ers of soft net­tings, vel­vet leaves and petals – to add tex­ture to our gowns.

My in­spi­ra­tion

We have a beau­ti­ful gar­den at our stu­dio in Joburg that fu­els my cre­ativ­ity. Beau­ti­ful fab­rics are also one of my most prom­i­nent sources of in­spi­ra­tion, as my mind thinks of imag­i­na­tive ways I can play around and mould them into beau­ti­ful gar­ments. The images cho­sen re­late to what we do at Ves­selina – cre­at­ing dresses that cap­ture what we love about cou­ture.

The look and feel

Whether it’s with a print, ap­pliqué or lace de­tail, I in­cor­po­rate el­e­ments of na­ture. The styles of these dresses are also in line with our sil­hou­ette: soft and ef­fort­less with a whim­si­cal and ro­man­tic feel. By in­cor­po­rat­ing sheer fab­rics the dresses are kept del­i­cate with a cer­tain mys­ti­cal el­e­ment.

Lux­u­ri­ous satin, silk and chif­fon are our fab­rics of choice. Our main colour story would be blush pink, nude and blue hues with a touch of green, grey, metal­lic and white.
