Beautiful, beaded, but not wholly traditional

Dresses of the white, beaded, bridal variety are seldom the kind you can see a bellybutton through. But then they’re not the kind designed by Brazilian Lourdinha Noyama. In Leandro Ramos’ (leandroramos.com.br) shoot The Factory, Lourdinha Noyama’s gowns stand out for their details: sprinklings of pearl beading, flower-like lace appliques, streamlined silhouettes that occasionally flourish out into fishtails.

Headpieces by Graciella Starling compliment Noyama’s dresses as styled by Margaret Moraes. Blending the boundaries of classical convention with daring touches of sheer fabric in some looks, and sticking to the traditional in others, the consistent factor is that Ramos’ shoot captures white gowns in a way that’s never monotonous.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
