Mexican wedding gown designer launches girls line.
The flower girl dress collection has hints from the Victorian Era fairytale princesses.
By introducing a unique take on dress making, designer Silvia Bours is adding a touch of elegance to the fashion industry. The 28 year old, Mexico-based designer creates each one of her pieces by hand with materials such as silk, cotton, and tulle.
Her collection includes little girls’ dresses priced from $100 to $500. And the sizes range from two years to six years.
The line is strongly influenced by the high end luxury of French royalty. With distinctive hints from the Victorian Era, reminiscent of aristocracy and fairy tale princesses.
“My designs are sweet and theatrical. We strive to recreate the feeling of the fairy tale princess,” states Bours. “All of our dresses are literal works of art. And it resonates within each detail as they are clearly made with love. Some of the dresses are hand painted on cotton. Others have elaborate bead work that you will not find elsewhere. As a woman I strongly believe in the power of femininity. And I believe that my designs show that.”
