Pnina Tornai did not hold anything back in her 2018 Couture Collection. Expressing a theme of both “fragility & the strength of the unbreakable” Tornai showcased Swarovski crystals that represented broken mirrors to further push her storyline. Whether on the models’ faces or selectively placed on each garment, once hitting the light, the Swarovski crystals provided a breathtaking accent throughout the collection.
Cut outs were prominent in this collection (they are a Tornai trademark!), with either sheer glittered fabric in the form of a bodysuit or a lace bustier on top of what is expressed by Tornai as “surprise skirts”. With the purpose of being detached after a first dance, Tornai gave options of what a young bride would like on her big day. Fabrics such as delicate French lace & silk Duchess satin were used in abundance this season as well.
From the pickups on extravagant ball gown skirts, to unique embroideries that ever so gracefully draped over the body, to tulle infused mermaid dresses that enhanced the figure, every detail was touched to perfection. The color ranged from Ivory to Pure White with hints of countless shades of Nudes. Overall, the collection painted the exact storyline Tornai intended to convey. Tastefully executed, Pnina Tornai, not only shared a little of her personality but also showed the possibilities of what a bride could be.
