Why we love her: Alyssa is a beautifully crafted statement dress. Hang her in the Louvre because she’s a work of art! Every inch of her is covered in exquisite and elegant detail. Alyssa has a gorgeous mermaid silhouette; she is covered in lace from her bodice to the knees, where a  seamless transition to a tulle skirt adds a dramatic flare.

And speaking of drama, her strapless sweetheart neckline has a deep plunge with lace edging– it’s a perfectly classic yet sexy neckline. The lace edging creates a soft and romantic look to compliment the bold plunge. Alyssa’s lace pattern is breath-taking. It is more of a traditional lace pattern with lines and swirls, but she also has flowers and leaves throughout. Clear sequins are stitched into the lace, adding a gentle sparkle without bulky beading. Alyssa has a layer of glitter tulle underneath, which also adds a little shine without being over the top. She will catch the light and make brides glow!  And if you thought the front of this dress was beautiful, just wait until you see her back!

Delicate beadwork showcases the quality craftsmanship we expect from Kitty Chen. Alyssa’s back is unlined, which creates a dazzling illusion. There are clear beads, pearls, and sequins with lace applique interspersed. Crystal buttons adorn the center of the back and close the gown up nicely. Boning inside the bodice provides a lot of support while the soft lining in the skirt does not restrict movement. Alyssa shows off just the right amount of skin while still remaining modest and mature.

The most striking part of Alyssa is her train, hands down. There is a double-layer look to her train; there is a ring of bold floral applique where the train hits the floor, but the train then continues out in a scalloped shape. It ends with more flowers around the edge. In a word, it is breathtaking. The sequins and glitter tulle from the bodice continues down the length of the train, making it just as dazzling as the rest of the gown. Alyssa is available in Ivory/Khaki, Ivory, and White.     

She’s great for: Alyssa is a perfect choice for brides looking to show off their curves with a timeless mermaid silhouette! She will cinch in the waist with her boning up top, and the flare of the skirt hits at exactly the right spot around the knees. The pattern of the lace elongates brides, making it a great option for brides of any height! She is dramatic and will fit the vibe of elegant and formal venues like ballrooms, mansions, and hotels.

What makes her special: The back of the dress. Alyssa’s train is an absolute show-stopper! It is regal, romantic, and tastefully bold. She makes such a statement walking down the aisle, posing on staircases, and in from-behind photos. The floral applique, sequins, and glitter tulle seamlessly blend together to create a timeless yet modern look.
