After honing her chops at the lovely Maggie Sottero, designer Sophia Apostolides debuted her sweeping bridal collection, ‘Sophia Tolli,’ to radiant reception. Emphasizing the art of the ‘perfect fit,’ showmanship, and the definition of new romance, ‘Sophia Tolli’ is a classic example of effortless beauty at its best.

‘Venus’ – showered in hints of Parisian couture, this mermaid silhouetted gown features corset flourishes, glittering beading, corded lace, and vintage-inspired brooch perched upon the pleated organza waistband
‘Daria’ – with its flattering A-line form and crystallized strands of beading, ‘Daria’ speaks volumes thanks to chic asymmetrical paneled draping, frontal pleats, and dreamy taffeta folds
‘Pandora’ – nothing short of visionary, this taffeta A-line gown hugs the body with satin banding and crystal accents. A chapel-length train and Edwardian-like bustle compliments the curvaceous corset back

‘Iona’ – reminiscent of marble palisades and guilded ball rooms, this texturized creation features scalloped lace, silk shantung draping, and pleated tiered tulle
‘Leandra’ – beaded appliqués adhere to a taffeta A-line silhouette and lacy underskirt, while a draped overlay flows into an elegant chapel-length train
‘Cloris’ – under the Pantheon, ‘Cloris’ was deemed the goddess of flowers - not surprisingly, this gown exudes nymph-like prowess. Swirling taffeta, hand-beaded crystals, and lush lace appliqués all stem from a pleated waist sash
