Dany Atrache Spring Couture 2013

I have recently been introduced to the enchanting world of Dany Atrache Couture, a place where dream gowns are woven into reality, with just a sprinkling of fairy dust. The French Lebanese designer credits his previous work experience to the house of Dior and other Parisian ateliers, before embarking upon his own fruitful career in couture during the early 2000's.

For Spring 2013, Atrache's lavish designs begin with floaty feminine silhouettes, shaded in with the candied contents of a box of Ladurée macaroons. The sweetness of rose petal pink and lavender, the richness of praline cream and caramel, brazen black licorice, the freshness of lemon and mint, and the tang of raspberry. 

These beautifully constructed shapes have been showered with meticulous detail. It's evident that endless hours of thought has been put into every bead, every frill and each intricate inch of embroidery. Floor sweeping tulle ballgowns are given a modern appeal by way of chic leather and metallic belts. I loved Dany's innovative caped and bejeweled necklines. Here is a glance into the exquisite creations from Dany Atrache's Spring 2013 collection.

Set 1.                                                     

Set 2.

Set 3.

Set 4.

Set 5.

Set 6.

Set 7.

I hope that we see each of these glorious gowns make their way across the gulf and onto the Hollywood red carpet. I loved the cerise and nude tulle dress in Set 1, the frosted pink gown with embroidered cape from the second set, and the three minted green frocks above. 
Could you pick a favourite?

Morning Sam! Thanks a lot for your words, I really appreciate them each time:) I love this designer too! Is really so great and reminds me also of Elie Saab you know, for the use of lace, pale colors and little flowers! These gowns are so gorgeous, I am in difficul to pick a fav but I think the first (from the right), set 3, is the one I want to grab! Love the belt and the details! Have a great day my dear, hugs!:*♥

Very beautiful creations but with the life I live, I wouldn't have any occasion to wear a dress like this. Nice to look at though.

If I was a movie star, I would always wear his designs on the red carpet. Everything is just flat out beautiful! I keep trying to pick a favorite dress or a favorite set and I can, it's all stunning. Its a very cohesive collection without looking redundant and I love the longer dresses, they drape and fall so beautiful, they look like such a dream to wear!
I love how you always introduce me to designers I'm not a familiar with and they're always amazing designers. You have some excellent taste my dear!
