Tell us about pas de deux bridal.
pas de deux bridal is a fresh collection of ballet-inspired separates and gowns, founded by Martha Flemming, a seasoned brand-builder and upscale retail professional. The brand offers great value and customization for the bride-to-be: the collection pieces may be combined to achieve many different styles, and even mixed with a bride’s existing wardrobe, allowing her to wear her bridal looks again. As the industry continues to move in the direction of more intimate, personalized and even DIY weddings, this romantic ‘create your own look’ concept behind pas de deux bridal is perfect for the modern bride. The collection is produced in the finest silks, tulle and lace and made with love in New York City.
What is the inspiration behind Pas de deux bridal?
Our beautiful wedding apparel is inspired by the romance and grace of the ballet. Each piece is designed to allow the bride to customize her look, creating a style as individual as she is.
We are often asked how to pronounce the name of our company (pa de ‘doe), what it means (a dance for two), and why we chose this unique name for our line of bridal apparel. In the ballet a ‘pas de deux’ is a very romantic move for couples. Our name, pas de deux bridal, is the perfect metaphor for a wedding: a very romantic move or gesture that a couple makes while dancing the narrative of their love story!
How is Pas de deux bridal unique?
Our diverse line of gowns and separates answers all of a bride’s apparel needs; the line’s versatility allows her to layer and pair the pieces to dress for all her bridal events, and our stylish and tasteful collection can even be worn again after the wedding.
What wedding dress trend(s) are you most excited about? Or what trend do you intend to set for the industry?
Bridal separates continue to be a wonderful option for brides to customize their own looks. We find that with the selection of bodices, skirts and coverlets the bride has almost unlimited design opportunities! Some of the most interesting trends we are seeing are the return to the classics: elegant gown shapes with tulle (our staple!) that incorporate many traditional bridal elements with full sweeping skirts, sweetheart necklines, topped with veils. Of course at pas de deux bridal we continue to offer fashion forward twists that we have become known for, with many trend items including color options such as blush (pale pink) and dove (light grey); high/low tulle and lace skirt options for the shoe loving bride; and even a lace jumpsuit to channel the red carpet bride.
In your opinion, how has bridal fashion evolved in the past few years?
We especially like the options the bride has today vs. the available market just 5 years ago!
More brides are customizing their looks and doing so in the most imaginative manner. With the emphasis on the individual and the influence of the larger fashion industry, wedding apparel is even more exciting than ever. Since pas de deux bridal has many gown and separates options, we love the creative ways our customer puts them together. In fact, one bride wanted the top to one dress made into a separate bodice so she could wear it after her wedding day. This exciting new trend translates to the wedding gown/separates that will be worn and loved for many years to come.
