Asians in Fashion | Monique Lhuillier’s Spring ’14 Bridal Collection

French Filipina designer Monique Lhuillier is well known in the fashion industry for her exquisite evening and wedding gowns, with a huge following celebrity following that includes Jennifer Lopez, Kristen Stewart, and Katy Perry. Her latest bridal collection for the Spring 2014 season was met with much adoration from the public, as it premiered at the 2013 New York Bridal Fashion Week from April 20-22. For the inspiration behind her collection, Lhuillier told Refinery29:

“I imagined myself being locked up in this gorgeous apartment in Paris looking out the windows and fantasizing what my wedding would be. That’s why the set was very much like a Parisian interior. I wanted my brides to be a little more covered this season. I find it sexier and newer to show a little less skin. So, I showed all those capes, which were more dramatic — and the entrance made more of a statement.”
