Bridal gowns in spring shades of blue, green, pink and white shone on the catwalk, with a delicate combination of lines and tones, and the surprising and new use of color.

A delicate combination of lines and tones and the fabulous use of blue throughout the designs highlighted the collection.

Intricate details make each design a model of the Paris couture, with a nod to tradition. A true display of spectacular sewing techniques, the dresses are finished with heart-shaped bustiers, falling sleeves, jeweled accents, and covered with intricate lace overlays.

Brides who opt for one of these can cross off the 'something blue' on the to-do list.

For the most coquettish: in tune with his new line of children's fashion, the Dominican designer presented a small collection of dresses for young ladies of honour.

Several of the dresses came down the aisle preceded by flower girls wearing younger versions of the grown-up gowns.
