FROM wedding gowns of simple elegance, to dresses with vibrant prints, add a dashing groom to the mix, and we got our fashion fix in the last week of July.
Avel Bacudio: ‘A Wedding at Napa Valley’
HE travels the world almost on a monthly basis, but it was a trip to Napa Valley in California that inspired Bacudio’s first major bridal show. At “Marry Me at The Marriott”, the hotel’s annual wedding showcase, he presented a “ready-to-wear” collection of long gowns, pants and blouse and skirts that he said are meant to be “mixed and matched”.
Bacudio has evolved from being one of the country’s avant-garde vanguards to being a subdued, sophisticated practitioner. His Marriott brides wore gowns made of Mikado silk, French lace, neoprene, tulle and flowery cutout lace. Embellishments were kept to a minimum, only pearl beads.
“My silhouette is flowy—very comfortable and relaxed. I want the bride to enjoy her food because isn’t the food delicious at weddings? She won’t be able to eat much if her gown’s too fitted,” the always boisterous Bacudio laughed.
And why is the most eligible bachelor in the land, Alden Richards, his groom?
“Alden is my male muse,” Bacudio said.
To which the “Pambansang Bae”, ever humble, replied: “Ever since I started in showbiz, Avel was one of the people who have supported me and it really feels great to have modeled for him and show people his creations.”
