The Glitz and Glamour of Hayley Paige Gowns

Known for her dramatic style that took the bridal fashion world by surprise, Hayley Paige designs continue to grab our attention and our hearts. To celebrate the Season of Sparkle, we’re highlighting three of her gowns that shimmer and shine.
First is Dori, an elegant masterpiece. The voluminous flounced, horsehair skirt has a chapel train and is topped with an alabaster and crystal high-neck halter bodice. Your color choices are alabaster, all ivory or all white.
This is a dream gown. Think Royals. Don’t think princess, think QUEEN. Think Fantasy with a capital “F”. Some style pundits say this is the most sought after gown of the year. Warning - not a dress for the faint of heart!
Josie is our next ball gown and is similar to Dori except for two things: instead of a flounced skirt, it’s tiered and it has a strapless, sweetheart neckline instead of a halter with straps. (One could say it shows a bit more skin!) The bodice on Josie is the same alabaster and crystal jewels. Your color choices are eggshell, ivory on ivory, or white on white.
This is a gown with hints of French elegance and drama from the days of Louis XIV. And the brilliance of the designer is that it is not dated, not at all old-fashioned. It’s every bit a gown fit for today’s fashion forward bride. That’s the brilliance of Hayley Paige.
Lastly, we’d like to tell you about Dani. Here, Hayley Paige takes a classic A-line silhouette to very glamorous heights. The top layer of the skirt is subtly pleated English net with a satin lining. The bodice combines the most amazing beadwork with swirls and swags. We’ve provided photos of the optional neckline: our stock sample has the standard sweetheart neckline or you can go daring and devil-may-care with the plunging V. It comes in ivory over cashmere or ivory on ivory.
This is a very unique gown because we find it so hard to put in a category. Is it Grecian Goddess or Hollywood Oscar Night Runway Star? Is it a Byzantine Empress or perhaps a Viking Princess? Herein lies the uniqueness of the dress. It doesn’t fit into a mold. Perhaps this is the recipe for a timeless dress.
All three of these gowns are in stock waiting for the right brides to fall in love with them.
