What happens when we marry elegance with goodwill? The answer: La Grace.
Any bride would say ‘I do’ to Joe San Antonio’s brilliance and ingenuity when it comes to crafting a dream wedding gown.
Joe’s take on bridal gowns are a marriage of simple elegance and modern timelessness. Her designs blur the fine line between dreams and reality; a fairytale and the one you have in front of you. Like her former bridal collections, her latest couture is an entourage of a new kind of elegance and more.
Dressed for the Happily Ever After
True to Joe’s signature style, traditional mediums such as French Lace, 3D laces, hand embroidery, and detailed hand painting can all be seen in the delicate gowns and dresses featured in the collection. Soft French Tulle is the primary element used to capture the soul of the entire set.
Embodying the essence of bridal timelessness and femininity, soon-to-be la mariée Alex Gonzaga herself, has been chosen to speak the true language of La Grace. “Alex has always sought out ageless pieces and has a feminine and graceful touch — aligned with the vision of La Grace,” vowed Joe.
The dresses' individual names were collaborated by Alex & Joe, mostly echoing the names of people they hold near and dear to their hearts.
Capturing the grace of a new kind of elegance are Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto and Bob Nicolas. Behind the ‘heaven on earth’ scene is Gideon Hermosa. Redefining the blooming meaning of grace are the fairy godmothers Cath Sobrevega (Fashion Stylist), Mikka Marcaida (Makeup), Jerry Javier (Hair), and Jefferson Si (Shoes).
A Bigger Heart for the Big Day
The year 2020 may have silenced wedding bells, but La Grace is still committed to its vow to remember all those who were affected by the pandemic and past calamities, thus, the first sale generated from this collection will be donated to the typhoon survivors in Cagayan De Oro, hopefully enabling them to rebuild their lives at the start of the new year.
