Designer Solo Merav Makes Debut at Fashion Week



Couture Bridal Designer Solo Merav is making her U.S. debut this fall as the brand unveils its 2016 collection during Bridal Market Week in New York City.

The new collection, inspired by Merav’s travels to Bruges in northwest Belgium, alludes to a dark-age fantasy of quaint cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages and sun-dappled canals dotted with swans. A place where Merav says “time stops and a fairy tale begins” just as one’s wedding day.

Keeping this wondrous place in mind, gowns are created with ethereal silks and satins, finely-embroidered fabrics, delicate organza, gossamer lace, brilliant gems, and exquisite beads. The end result is a collection of enchanting textures and intricate beading, made for the bride who has been dreaming of the special day her fairy tale comes to life.

“My work features soft lines that emphasize the female curves, but still retains a sense of mystery,” says Merav Borenstein, Solo Merav’s owner and designer. “I begin by building on past inspirations and sketching silhouettes – while intuitively interpreting traditional designs.  Each individual idea is then fully explored, developed and refined, and the completed drawings are transformed into unforgettable garments.”
