I am thrilled to announce the launch of the Dennis Basso bridal collection exclusively for Kleinfeld Manhattan. This is the first licensing agreement for both Kleinfeld and Basso, though Kleinfeld has exclusive in house collections and other partnerships and Basso has signature boutiques around the world. Dennis is a dear friend of mine and we are both so excited about this collaboration. Here's a photo of Dennis and I from Robert Mitra. This was taken when WWD broke the story, read the full article here.
Dennis’s bridal collection will feature 22 gowns from unique yet classic ball gowns to the less traditional sheaths, there is a dress for every bride’s silhouette and personality. Using custom hand beading, heavy embroidery and three dimensional embellishments on satin, charmeuse and taffeta, the line is exquisite and retails at $2500 – $4500.
Here's a sneak peak of the sketch's:
Dennis pulled fresh inspiration for his romantic and sophisticated bridal collection from decades of travel and experience in the luxurious fashion world. "When I interacted with the clientele at Kleinfeld I realized that every bride is a celebrity and the wedding is her ultimate red carpet moment." Basso said.
No stranger to celebrity, he has created fashions for the likes of Ivana Trump, Eva Longoria, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Naomi Campbell, Stephanie Seymour and Janet Jackson. Dreaming of designing bridal since he was seven years old, I am happy to help make that dream come true…
His bridal gowns will hit the runway October 12, 2011 at a private press show at Kleinfeld Manhattan and will be available in store October 13, 2011.
