Clouds of couture


- JAGUAR F-TYPE -spot_img

Romantic dresses that spark the imagination highlight a woman’s beauty and grace.

 White aesthetic

Ball gown made with embroidered Art Deco-inspired fabric cutouts, Francis Libiran

Well-thought-out details and meticulous, artisanal craftsmanship add to the grandeur of haute couture

Coming up roses

Printed dress with asymmetrical ruffled neckline, Randy Ortiz; golden South Sea pearl earrings and cuff set in 18k yellow gold with diamonds, all Jewelmer

Floral-themed creations embody femininity. Throw in some frills and flounce for added fun and dimension—the bigger, the better! 

Every inch a lady

Ball gown with embroidered lace overlay and appliqués, Randy Ortiz; ‘La Mer’ golden South Sea pearl earrings and ring set with blue sapphires and diamonds in 18k white gold, all Jewelmer

Saccharine lace and fancy embroidery become contemporary with a clever and tasteful show of skin 

Divine inspiration

Tiered dress with ruffles and appliqués, Francis Libiran; golden South Sea pearl drop earrings set in 18k yellow gold with diamonds, Jewelmer

Regal and sophisticated references make for couture pieces fit for a queen

New romantic

Ruffled dress with re-embroidered appliqués, Francis Libiran; golden South Sea pearl earrings and bangle set in 18k yellow gold with diamonds, all Jewelmer

Stand out in a conversation piece that draws the eye at all angles

A piece of heaven

Fully beaded jacket with ostrich feathers, and pants, both Dennis Lustico; golden South Sea pearl earrings and ring set in 18k yellow gold with diamonds, all Jewelmer

Feathers and luster are the stuff of ethereal dreams

Great lengths

Fringed dress with hand-painted back train, Rhett Eala; golden South Sea peal earrings set in 18k yellow gold with diamonds, Jewelmer

Reimagined classics take on new shapes, frills, and fabrication

Sheer beauty

Tulle ball gown with sheer bodice and floral accent, Joey Samson; golden South Sea pearl earrings set in 18k yellow gold with diamonds, Jewelmer

Ingenious designs that celebrate the female form are today’s pièce de résistance

Bright things to come

Tulle dress with asymmetric neckline, Joey Samson; golden South Sea pearl earrings and ring set in 18k white gold with diamonds, all Jewelmer

Sometimes, you don’t need much. Vivid colors and volume on unornamented frocks provide maximum impact
