Designer: Sophia Tolli
Why we love her
Autumn by Sophia Tolli will take your breath away– and your fiance’s! Stunning floral appliques, illusion detailing, and cap sleeves give Autumn an ethereal, fairy-tale vibe.Flowers and vines swirl around the bodice and throughout the skirt. A scattering of clear sequins interspersed within the appliques sparkle subtly without distracting from the intricacy of the lace pattern. The remarkable lace frames the V-shaped neckline and covers the dainty cap sleeves. The lace extends ever-so-slightly over the neckline, softening the look and adding an extra touch of romance.
On the back of the bodice, the cap sleeves flow into another romantic V-shaped back neckline. The back neckline of Autumn is not very low, so the bodice has a lot of support for brides with larger busts. There is enchanting illusion detailing on the back of this gown, where it appears that flowers and leaves lay directly on brides’ backs. This helps create the effect of a lower back neckline while still providing coverage and support. Fabric-covered buttons hold Autumn closed over an invisible zipper: the buttons extend through the top of the skirt, and they are always an appreciated romantic touch to a wedding gown.
Autumn has an A-line silhouette, which means she hugs brides’ curves through the natural waistline and then flows effortlessly into an airy tulle and organza skirt. A-lines are a favorite silhouette for brides because of how flattering they are on every body type!
The skirt is adorned with more of the appliqués from the bodice; they cascade down from the bodice and also decorate along the bottom of the skirt in a dramatic fashion. The flowers and leaves create an absolutely enticing motif on the chapel-length train, making your walk down the aisle as a bride captivating from all angles.
Autumn is available in ivory/nude or all ivory.
She’s Perfect For
Despite her name, spring and summer brides should absolutely be adding Autumn to their ‘must-try’ list! Her combination of gentle sparkle, blooming floral appliques, and airy a-line silhouette gives her dreamy garden-wedding vibes. Venues like arboretums, wineries, and parks will compliment the nature-inspired details on this gown; when the sun hits the sparkles in the dress, brides will be radiant from every angle. Autumn’s cap sleeves and higher back neckline provide appropriate coverage for religious ceremony spaces as well. She has traditional bridal gown elements like her silhouette and cap sleeves, but she is also fun and flirty— Autumn can work with any vibe of wedding and fit right in!
What makes her special
Autumn exudes delicate romance; she is dreamy, soft, and sparkly. This dress provides a fairy tale feeling when you put her on. The delicate floral lace designer Sophia Tolli placed around the bodice elevates the look whilst simultaneously adding structure and support. Autumn has a structured bodice with a full lace tulle skirt adding to the beautiful a-line silhouette.
She is so effortlessly enchanting, and brides always feel incredibly beautiful when they put her in. What makes Autumn special is how special and gorgeous brides feel when they put her on! Enjoy this short video of Autumn by Sophie Tolli.
