The modern bride inspires him, particularly where she's saying her vows. Whether your nuptials are in Santorini's La Maltese, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden or the Maldive islands, a Naeem Khan frock rocks with scallop-beading, Spanish rose appliqué, nouveau threadwork, blush lining and cathedral tulle veils. At Neiman Marcus Downtown, Stanley Korshak. Megan Pruitt Winder MATRIMONY {Modernized} Sole SISTER A ll eyes were on Pippa as she sauntered down the aisle of Westminster Abbey behind her sister Kate, three years ago in the wedding of the century. Her maid-of-honor dress: Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Her shoes: Aruna Seth. Seth launched her eponymous collection in 2009 during Milan fashion week and instantly gained a cult following worldwide for her classic signature style and patented technology that creates cashmere- like plush padding in the sole. With a standalone showroom in Belgravia, London, the label has finally stepped into Dallas via Warren Barrón Bridal, which relocated in July from its original locale in Highland Park Village to set up shop in a 3,500-square-foot Snider Plaza space, making room for more gowns, evening wear and accessories. "Aruna Seth shoes are my favorite new accessory, as they add an element of glamour to any gown — whether wedding or evening," says Warren Barrón co-owner Elle Warren Harman. $595 to $1,275, at Warren Barrón Bridal, 6731 Snider Plaza, 214.526.8400, Lauren Scheinin BridalDREAMS SHANA ANDERSON Bridalicious Boot Camp Nardos Imam, 6170 Sherry Lane #120, 214.363.7701; GOWNS GALORE THE AISLE OF STYLE BEGINS WITH THE PERFECT DRESS. HERE, TOP BRIDAL TRUNK SHOWS. COMPILED BY LAUREN SCHEININ PUT A VUITTON ON IT Nardos Imam MacKenzie Brittingham Sumrall SHANA ANDERSON Vera Wang Monique Lhuillier A luminous ambience filters through the air, and bespoke bridal gowns drape the walls — a celestial scene at the recently opened Nardos Imam bridal studio. Perched upon a gilded cream silk settee, co-founders MacKenzie Brittingham Sumrall and Nardos Imam embrace and pose for photographs to be featured on their new website. They could not be more perfectly opposite: Sumrall, a Dallas native and SMU grad, spent the past few years working for her family's commercial real estate company while Imam, a Dallas transplant by way of Eritrea in Northern Africa, worked her way up from tailor to in-house designer at Stanley Korshak, where she worked for seven years prior to going solo. Their friendship began two years ago over a mink dress: Sumrall's gown for her winter nuptials in Aspen. "It took me awhile to find the right person to make my dreams come to fruition," she says, "but Nardos sketched designs for me and went over the entire development. We hit it off right away." The ladies reconnected six months ago for an even larger venture: opening their own 2,000-square foot boutique. "I saw MacKenzie throughout her wedding planning, a girl's most stressful period, and she remained sweet and composed the entire time. It is the perfect partnership," Imam says. With about 35 original designs, the studio imports fabric and lace from all over the world and custom-designs gowns for the mothers of the bride and groom, as well as evening and cocktail dresses. "Every girl has a dream of what they want to look like on their wedding day," says Imam, "so to get the opportunity to make their dreams come true is priceless." Lauren Scheinin VEILS in BLOOM Brides looking for something more than typical tulle have found a friend in Lower Greenville's Bows and Arrows. The design studio, opened by husband-and-wife duo Adam and Alicia Rico in 2009, specializes in ornate headpieces made from fresh flowers both locally sourced and imported from Holland, France, South America and Australia. The shop operates under the ideology that flowers should retain their true flowing form even as they are arranged. Mixing vintage and modern with textural and loose elements, the Ricos customize each piece to ensure their brides blossom. 4908 Bryan St., 214.828.2697, bowsandarrowsflowers. com; by appointment only. Lauren Scheinin Louis Vuitton turned to the details of its lauded leather goods to expand its collection of diamond engagement and wedding rings. The Monogram Infiniti rings feature monogram detail in gold, rose gold or silver with princess-cut diamonds, while the Epi bands call to mind Vuitton's leather piping. The Capitonée ring with crisscross lines is inspired by the interior of the original trunks, back when tufting the top was de rigueur. The most elaborate new ring? The diamond monogram Les Ardent solitaire and Eternité wedding band. $1,380 to $9,000, at the Louis Vuitton boutique. Kate Stukenberg Vera Wang Naeem Khan Bridal Bridal Buzz WHAT'S NEW
