With a successful Jasmine Fashion Show at the Palmer House, the Chicago Market is at an end. But we’re just getting started with the Spring 2020 Collection! We have lots of highlights to share with you about this past weekend’s 35th Anniversary Fashion Show. Thank you to those who traveled near and far to celebrate with us and for those that weren’t able to make it, don’t worry! You’ll be able to watch the entire show on our Facebook.
The Jasmine 35th Anniversary Fashion Show was held at the Palmer House- a monumental Chicago hotel. With the hotel ingrained with history, it perfectly complemented our Spring 2020 Collection. Jasmine designer, Jose, drew inspiration from fashion’s past for both Jasmine Couture and Jasmine Collection. You can read more about Spring 2020 here. The full collection of gowns from all three bridal lines, including our latest silk dress collection, Privé by Jasmine, was on display in the Honoré Room. Attendees met and chatted with Jose in the showroom and took the opportunity to see and feel the dresses. Before the show, a full breakfast buffet was served. Our Jasmine tote bag gifts were a hit!
Fashion Show Highlights
The Grand Ballroom of the Palmer House proved its namesake this past weekend- this event space is truly grand. Its beautifully ornate chandeliers lit the room with its faint glow. The indigo spotlights and Jasmine illumination set the mood from the start of the show. We began the show with a luxurious Mikado ball gown with a linear embroidery beaded bodice. Both black beading and ivory beading walked side by side, emanating a classic and clean look as part of the Jasmine Couture collection. As the show continued, Jasmine Couture echoed significant details of historic fashion like the 80’s inspired gown with melodramatic shoulders and art deco-esque embroidered lace tulle fit-and-flare.
While the models strutted down the runway, the gowns sparkled and shined against the lights, especially the Jasmine Collection halter gown with an A-line over-skirt. And throughout our Jasmine Couture, you could see black colorways along with your standard white/ivory color, but, we took these dresses to the next level. The intricate details of our floral lace was so distinct against its contrasting lining it was impossible to not love. The Jasmine jacket cape was beautifully constructed with a head-turning crepe jumpsuit. This piece epitomized the non-conformist stunning bride with a high sense of fashion. Not only did these fabrics beautifully drape on the models as they walked, they floated in mid air.
It’s easy to see why the new satin over-skirt from Jasmine Spring 2020 Accessories is a designer favorite. The over-skirt instantly enhances a bride’s aesthetic for a lavish look. This skirt’s fabric is as glossy and smooth as its appearance. It even has pockets! Paired with a simple beaded belt, the over-skirt accessory stole the show. The cathedral train turned this Jasmine Collection sweetheart fit-and-flare lace dress into an elegant ball gown. Any bride that loves this piece will easily turn her formal wedding day look into a fun evening outfit change with this satin skirt.
The Jasmine Collection stretch lace fit-and-flare gown paired with a jacket cape received a high praise of applause during the show. While she showcased the chiffon cape down the runway, the lightness of the cape floated mid-air behind her in an ethereal nature. Those in the audience couldn’t help but clap as it whisked through the air in simplicity.
This stretch crepe fit-and-flare gown with a plunging neckline was also a crowd-pleaser. How it could not? It screams Hollywood Glam. The shoulder pads and long sleeves make any bride feel sultry, but the buttons trailing on the entire back down to the Tiffany train give it a certain charm.
Privé by Jasmine
This collection was what everyone has been waiting for. Showcased last, many were anxious to see how Jasmine brought back silk to the wedding industry with Privé. The bright magenta accessories and construction alone were enough to get someone’s attention. Fun, flirty music set the ambiance for Privé as our first bride stepped out. The silky textiles shimmered in the lights, so you could admire its quality richness. Because these gowns are minimal in nature, it created an impeccable blank canvas for tasteful accessorizing. Exaggerated bows, sleeve poufs, floral headbands, lace and beaded jackets, among others were the colorful paints for these silk canvases. Whether whimsy or elegance gravitates to you as a bride, Privé is your foundation. Get more information on Privé here.
We hope you had a great time at the Jasmine 35th Anniversary Fashion Show! These Fashion Show highlights should help inspire you to find the right gown for your bride or to create a new style for brides. With Jose as lead designer, the future of Jasmine is changing the bridal game and we are so lucky you are on board with us!
