For the bride-to-be who likes to think outside-the-box, Sharleez offers an unconventional concept on tradition. Every dress is a carefully thought out design, reflective of culture and diversity, as her designs are inspired by her travels and the places she visits. With a variety of fashions and forms, brides visiting the Sharleez Concept boutique are able to honor tradition in ceremony, while showcasing personality in style.

Fashion forward brides are showing a hint of sexy, rather than being overly conservative with their dress decisions. Trends of the season reveal more skin, with shoulder bearing styles and subtle, sultry details, like the sheer lace bodice shown here. A jeweled head-piece honors Turkish Tradition, while the style choice balances with the bride’s personality.

Oversized accents on traditional gowns are growing in popularity, and big-name designers are celebrating with beautiful bows to tie-the-knot. Sharleez lends an original take on this concept, with dramatic details in the form of cascading ruffles. This dress is the ultimate in femininity, complete with its blushing hint of pink, which we are also seeing from designers, giving a wink to color.

A more subtle deviation away from white, is this dress with its gold-toned embroidery, adding warmth and passionate emotion to the overall look. The charming, perfect ruffles make it most endearing.

A short dress, as opposed to a full gown, shows off a confident, playful bride – think Vegas wedding. The detachable veil-like gown on this dress is unique and brand new! Traditionally, removal of the veil symbolizes the bride and grooms full access to each other, and this clever update adds intrigue and intensity to the dress. The veil can be used to cover the bride’s legs in the ceremony, but allows her to have a fun, flirtatious and spirited look for night.

What a Concept!

Sharleez Concept is being featured this week at Vancouver Fashion Week on Sunday, September 25, and on Friday, October 14 at the Sharleez Fashion Show Gala in Toronto.
