Marguerite Hannah created the new MiaMia Flying Down to Rio 2020 collection for modern brides. There’s a strong emphasis on elegant A-line and slim silhouettes allied with a beautiful array of unusual and distinctive laces and embellishments.
I’m a big fan of MiaMia wedding dresses. Not just for the beautiful designs, but also because they’re affordable – prices for the new collection start from just £345. The ‘younger sister’ of Alan Hannah, MiaMia is strong and forward-thinking but takes from the older sister’s experience. There’s no expense spared in the sheer quality and cut.
Highlights from the Flying Down to Rio 2020 collection include Patience, a figure-hugging dress with the most beautiful scalloped lace skirt and beaded belt. On the jewel-encrusted Bettina, shimmering beaded organza brings the classic wedding dress to life, sparkling and twinkling from all angles. It’s a real showstopper.
Astrid also has a classic shape, but the skirt’s lovely fluid chiffon gives it a very soft and feminine movement. The bodice is designed with the most intricate and detailed cotton lace, and this theme is continued with Eliza, a simple crepe dress with a very low V at the back. This style also has a beautiful coat which is light and sheer with long fluted sleeves and lace appliqués.
