For her very first bridal collection, Pamella Roland spared no detail; each of her brides were decked out in feminine frocks with romantic detailing, and perched upon a bed of flowers. Pink roses served as a backdrop for a dramatic strapless number with a removable satin train, while yellow daisies complimented a ’60s flared dress, studded with pearls and other gems. There was also one blue gown, in a dusty hue that was a great non-white option. What was on Roland’s mind at the time of her debut? That, and much more, right this way…
How does it feel that your very first bridal collection has launched?
Finally! We’ve been talking about it for so long and it’s one of these “OK, we’re doing it” moments. To be honest, we’re really thrilled about how they’ve turned out.
How did the collection come together?
As you know, my daughter got engaged around the same time I talked about launching bridal. We didn’t know exactly what we wanted to do, so each dress is very different. We have a couple of short dresses for a casual or a second wedding. We have a blue dress because a lot of girls have been asking for that color!
Has your daughter picked out a dress yet?
No, but she’s not getting married until next September, so she has some time. As a mother, making dresses for her will be harder, because there’s so much more to think about.
What kind of gown do you think she’ll opt for?
She’s probably going to take details from each of these dresses. She might like the skirt of this or the sleeves on that. But she knows that she definitely wants two dresses!
