The JLM Couture show featured the new bridal collections from Jim Hjelm, Alvina Valenta, and Hayley Paige; and as always their presentation was a treat. Jim Hjelm was elegant and classic with a contemporary flair. Sparkle and texture, both big this season, were represented in looks like a petal Chantilly lace trumpet gown and a dutchess satin trumpet dress with an intricate crystal-embroidered bodice. The silk organza sweetheart A-line gown with a draped skirt and subtle side-slit took the look from traditional to modern chic. Alvina Valenta’s standout looks included a silk organza trumpet gown with a deep V-neckline and a Twenties-inspired Chantilly lace dress with a spaghetti-strap blouson bodice. The fashion-forward Hayley Paige did not disappoint with a silk georgette A-line gown with a Grecian-draped bodice featuring a bolero made out of alabaster stones and crystals; and a cashmere lace fit-and-flare gown with lingerie strap detailing.
