Fashion Guru for Malaysian Royalties & Celebrities Leslie Variyan (VARIANTE) showcases his first bridal collection at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel KL




The Wedding KL 2017  expo was held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur last week.

The Wedding KL 2017 is a 3-day expo held from the 3-5 March 2017,  featuring the best in Malaysia’s bridal industry, from the top designers, florists, planners, decorators, photography and more,

Royalty, Celebrities, Socialites and the creme de la creme of Kuala Lumpur attended the three day event. 

It is every girl's dream to walk down the isle on her big day, wearing the most stunning wedding dress. Well judging from the fact  that many who attended were already married I am sure they were re-living the dream in their minds, while as some said .... they were looking for ideas for their daughters wedding!.

One of the fashion designers showcasing his bridal collection at the expo was Leslie Variyan The Creative and Managing Director of Variente who is famed for his ready to wear designs for Royalties,  Celebrities and  Socialites. 



VARIYAN BRIDAL 2017



Inspired by the strong, elegant women who influenced the fashion world of the 1960’s, Leslie Variyan has designed this collection to pay homage to these icons.

“For me, 2017 started with inspiration drawn from the strong, iconic and timeless women of the 1960’s. When I thought about the likes of Jackie Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Queen Sirikit of Thailand and Imelda Marcos, I realised they had much more in common than just their style and grace, they were all strong willed and committed women who believed in standing by their man. When I realised that, I knew that I wanted to create my first bridal collection. A collection that allowed a woman to be inspired and feel as though they were apart of such an elite group of amazing women.”



Although this is not the first time Leslie has created bridal gowns, it is the first complete collection. “A bridal gown is something that is unique to each individual woman, each gown tells its own story about its bride. Who she is, what she is and who she is becoming after marriage.  There are no two gowns alike, and that is why this collection is made up of one-of-a-kind couture items that cannot be recreated.” continues Leslie.

This 24-piece collection has been created with a lot of texture. The intricate detail of pleating can be seen in a lot of pieces, together with timeless yet modern silhouettes that include one-shoulder gowns and elegant high slits. These sleek, sharp and sexy silhouettes are beautifully detailed with Leslie’s choice of elegant duchess satin, intricate lace, and timeless, crisp chiffon silks. The collection will include some of the signature embellishments that we have grown to love and will be accompanied by beautifully hand-sewn sequins, and beading together with classical pearls.


Leslie had some tips for the Bride to be.

YES AND NOS FOR EVERY BRIDE
3 YES’ FOR EVERY BRIDE
1.    Always wear heels with the gown. No matter how tall you are you still have to wear heels with your gown. You walk and look more elegantly with heels. Even if it's one-inch kitten heel.

2.    Go for your test make up way before your date and book your make-up and hair stylist in advance. You can shop around for one that suits you best and end up looking fabulously you in your wedding photos.

3.    It's your biggest day for you and your husband. Relax and enjoy the process of the whole thing, from preparation to the actual day. It happens only once in your life, embody it.


3 NO’S FOR EVERY BRIDE
1.    Less is more. You don't have to have a gown that excessively beaded.
You are not a Christmas tree you are a bride.

2.    It's your dress you get to make the decision. Don't bring the whole village with you when go for your appointments with your designer. For sure you will have a thousand and one opinions if you bring the whole gang and that will only cloud your judgement.

3.    Trends come and go, style is forever. Pick a design, which is stylish, not something just because it's trendy. So when u look back at pictures in years to come you'll forever look stylish.

Here are some of the designs that were showcased during his runway show:
