If you snoozed on snagging a spot for A-list gown designer Vera Wang's bridal trunk show, there's hope for you yet. LA-based designer Octavio Carlin—whose fans include Anne Hathaway and Sharon Stone—recently relaunched his bridal collection at his West Hollywood Atelier, giving high-rolling brides another stop to add on their dress hunting itinerary.
Priced from $1,500 to $10,000, the 18-piece line features gowns made of luxe fabrics like silk, silk charmeuse and crepe de chine, with designs inspired by silver screen starlets like Greta Garbo of Hollywood's Golden Age. Brides seeking a more personal experience can book appointments with the celeb-loved designer himself starting at $2,500.
Ready for your fitting? Head over to the designer's WeHo boutique at 309 N Kings Rd. to shop the glamorous goods for your big day. We also hear an e-store is in the works soon here.
