Berta Brings Avant-Garde Design to Modern Bridal

For Spring 2017, Berta Balilti presented at the Harvard Club, showing her collection of avant-garde gowns to an intimate audience of supporters. The line was a sophisticated showcase of gowns that focused heavily on beadwork, embroidery and texture. For inspiration she turned inward, and drew from the beauty of the lace, feathers and chiffon that were so prevalent in the lineup and reimagined them in a new way. Channeling the modern bride, most of the looks in the presentation felt more like on-trend artwork than wedding dresses, leaving a few gowns feeling like masterpieces and others looking a little less than glamorous.
