Classic blue is a showstopper on this Anne Barge bridal gown.
Paiging All Brides
“The hustle when it comes to being creative and the heart when it comes to the bride” are the forces that drive bridal design darling Hayley Paige, who brightens the wedding world with her infectious sparkle and twirl-inducing gowns. “I love looking to lyrical inspirations and empowerment principles, but this season had more of a thematic concept to it,” explains Paige of her Western-influenced collection. “I kicked up the dust with my sparkle boots and hoped to pioneer a western and wild heart.” The dresses, which Paige describes as “not your basic ball gown,” are imbued with a fresh sense of style while maintaining a timeless edge, from “Walker,” a romantic corseted eyelet organza gown, to “Banksy” (pictured here), a tulle confection with floral appliqué and beaded accents. “Design for me is about storytelling and furnishing a real creative purpose,” says Paige, who is planning her own walk down the aisle to exchange vows with her love, Conrad Louis.
