I don’t think I’ve ever said ‘drool-worthy’ on this blog (and I’d put money on that) but I’m going to now. This shoot from Mirentxu Bellet at Tra’coeur d’images of Manon Pascual’s stunning couture gowns is truly drool-worthy. There. I said it. But it’s so true!
Manon Pascual works in a small workshop near Quinsac in the Burgundy region of France where she makes her dresses in the old French tradition of haute couture while drawing inspiration from the lovely countryside. She’s known for balancing originality and elegance with clean lines and remarkable detailing. Everything from the cut to the embroidery is entirely handmade with European silks, exclusive French lace, and only the best embellishments. They’re stunning!
And for my US brides-to-be, I’ve got some good news for you! Manon Pascual model dresses can be bought in Brooklyn at Veka Bridal and range in price from $2,500-$3,500. If you’re lucky enough to travel to or live in France, Pascual meets clients in Paris and will create custom gowns based on your vision and price specifications. It’s a total win-win situation. You get a haute couture wedding dress from France (it would be like wearing a dream, seriously) and it won’t break the bank!
