Daalarna Couture Ballet Collection

I have SUCH a beautiful wedding collection to share with you lovelies today! I honestly struggled to narrow down the images for this one, because each and every dress in the collection is totally pin-worthy! Last year I shared Daalarna, the Hungarian couture bridal label, with you all for the first time, and now I’m delighted to spotlight the label’s new Ballet-inspired collection. I feel like ballet is having a real moment with bridal inspiration this year, probably because of the sleek silhouettes, ethereal fabrics and two-piece elements in the recent collections. I love it, because for me, a ballerina also epitomises so many of the qualities that brides wish to embody on their big day, like grace, passion, and elegance. You’ll find all of that in this collection, which took its cue from the beautiful Sleeping Beauty. In fact, the campaign photos below were shot on the set of the Hungarian National Ballet with the Ballet’s exceptional ballerina, Lili Felmery, bringing the collection to life. Let’s take a peek, shall we?

This is what Anita Benes, Daalarna’s designer, had to say about the collection: “I have always been captivated by ballerinas. The amazing dancers move around on stage so effortlessly and gracefully yet there is an extraordinary amount of work, self-control and diligence behind each movement and smile. They are fragile yet strong, romantic yet determined. These characteristics inspired my latest collection BALLET.”
