Veronique Branquinho designs new bridal line for MRFG
MRFG launches Carta Branca, a high end bridal fashion line with the famous designer Veronique Branquinho at the helm. Sensual femininity characterizes the collection.
MRFG wants to be a trendsetter in bridal fashion. It wants to appeal to the stylish bride which is why it is launching this new collection. Carta Branca perfectly complements the brand portfolio already consisting of Marylise and Rembo Styling.
Carta Branca is Veronique Branquinho’s vision of bridal fashion. The collection bears her signature and that means timelessness, precious fabrics and an artisan finish.
Bridal fashion is about purity and essence. Veronique Branquinho designs intuitively and is inspired by things she finds beautiful. That way she wants to make the bride’s most special day unforgettable.
What really appeals to Veronique Branquinho in bridal fashion is desire. Longing for that special day and that one dress that is lovingly made to measure for the bride. Every dress is made in quality fabrics and is finished with precision and care. The bride is willing to wait for it, to long for it. A wonderful idea.
Made with love
Veronique Branquinho was charmed by the slogan of MRFG “Designed with passion in Antwerp, made with love in Portugal.” From one conversation came another and so Veronique visited the Portuguese atelier of MRFG. There she saw the love of their craftsmen for the creations, the attention to detail. Getting to know each other’s world better has created the desire to work together.
When Veronique Branquinho first made her ready-to-wear collections, she noticed that some women chose to get married in one of her dresses. Now she can go one step further and design specifically for them. She did have one condition, namely that MRFG would give her Carta branca (meaning Carte Blanche). The collection immediately had a name. Carta Branca wants to say as much as Carte Blanche, but through the Portuguese translation the link is immediately made to our own production in Portugal as well as to the roots of Veronique Branquinho.
The result is seven creations and a few more pieces to put together ten powerful silhouettes. All models are made of timeless ivory white.
In this first collection are some Veronique Branquinho classics that the designer updated and translated into bridal fashion.
A bustier dress in plissé soleil could not be missed. You can wear this dress with a cape, the designer’s alternative to the bridal veil. And then you have a more sober dress with an open back and puffed sleeves. A very special part of the dress is the romantic tulle blouse with large sleeves and a circle skirt and of course it also includes a bustier.
There is also a tuxedo in the collection, made in matte silk and satin silk, very beautiful with a feminine blouse in chantilly lace. Combine the trousers of the suit with the cape and bustier and you get a very dramatic effect.
The T-shirt dress has a very pure and casual touch, a chic, silk T-shirt dress with volume at the hem. Veronique Branquinho also finds a dress like this very timeless and so she definitely wanted it in the collection. This is very feminine, with kimono sleeves and an elegant skirt – a nod to the couture of the fifties.
Carta Branca will be presented to the international press in Barcelona on 22 April.
