About the collection: Watters, a leader in the bridal design industry for more than 30 years, will showcase its 2016 collections at this year’s major bridal markets from August to October. Based in Dallas, Texas, Watters approaches their designs both with passion and technical expertise. Featuring opulent finishes and impeccable hand-placed lace and beading, Watters uses only the finest fabrics, including 100-percent silk shantung, silk organza, silk taffeta and a variety of elegant laces. “We can’t wait for everyone to see the new collections,” said Xay Vongphachanh, creative director at Watters. “We’re so inspired by the energy and beauty of our brides and strive to design pieces with them in mind,” she continued. “Our goal has remained the same for 30 years – to make a bride feel absolutely gorgeous on her special day.” Three Spring 2016 collections will be showcased by the designer, including the first debut of its newly- rebranded Willowby by Watters line. Formerly known as Love Marley, Willowby by Watters is the result of the widely successful styles that emerged from its collections. The Spring 2016 line, named The Wanderlust Collection, is inspired by the wonder of traveling and love of adventuring. With vintage- inspired details and ethereal elements, this collection is for the globe-trotting goddess in every bride. Gowns feature relaxed, figure-hugging silhouettes with statement necklines, low backs and hand-crafted embellishments. In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Watters is refreshing the entire look of the company’s presence to reflect the evolution and exciting growth of each collection. Watters, the company’s premier line, has been a leader in the bridal design industry for 30 years. To celebrate its anniversary, Watters is thrilled to present The Muse Collection, in recognition of the many women who have inspired designs over the past three decades. Also included in the Watters bridal collection are additions to our Seahorse line, featuring flower girls and junior bridesmaids. Inspired by timeless silhouettes and lustrous fabrications, the Wtoo Luminous Collection features elements such as chandelier beading, luxe skirt designs and one-of-a-kind tonal detailing. The Luminous Collection boasts a variety of mix-and-match styles that are suitable for the most formal events to chic, intimate ceremonies.
