If floating into your wedding ceremony on a cloud of tulle is your dream wedding day dress look, you’re going to want to get to know the gowns of Liancarlo.
Straight from the imagination of designer Carlos Ramirez, Liancarlo dresses are tasteful and timeless. In fact, he has said he “designs for people, not for show.”
An accomplished artist, Ramirez also spends much of his time creating abstract paintings — many of which inspire his bridal designs, he says. The crossover is undeniable. It’s very clear to see the floral details that appear often in his art show up in the dress creations.
Playful embellishment often involves botanical touches, including lace appliqués that appear to grow onto illusion netting or embroidered petals that seem to scatter and drift down from the bodice. Hand beading, metallic and silk threading add subtle glow and illumination to bodices.
Alencon and Guipure lace are reworked (by hand) and placed to float above the dresses, adding texture and interest. These old world fabrics and methods are used to create modern shapes for today’s bride.
All production and design take place in one facility in Florida, an practice not as common in the bridal industry as you might think. One seamstress takes care of a Liancarlo gown production from start to finish, to ensure no detail is overlooked. Dedicated staff members take care of the hand sewn embellishments for each dress.
Not one to shy from color, Ramirez experiments with different bridal shades in the Liancarlo collections. Blush pinks, shell and candlelight are just some of the “non-colors” he likes to use.
Liancarlo dresses feature silhouettes that are distinctly feminine and lady-like, with nothing too restrictive. Soft tulle skirts move with the bride as she walks, adding to the delicate feel of the gowns. Airy, natural and light, never compromising on quality.
While well-suited for an outdoor, particularly garden, wedding due to the heavy floral elements, Liancarlo wedding dresses would also be gorgeous for grand ballroom receptions or other dramatic venues.
One thing is for certain, Liancarlo gowns make the woman wearing them shine from within and accent her beauty without ever feeling like the gown is wearing her.
