CIARLA featured on

The new Ciarla collection, designed by Austin-based designer Jessica Ciarla, features feminine and modern bridesmaid dresses. I love how Ciarla mixes soft ruffles with the metallic-looking silk skirt, a unique combination of hard and soft that works beautifully together. What bridesmaid wouldn't want to wear this to a wedding (or out on the town afterward)? And you don't have to be too jealous of your 'maids: Ciarla's styles also make great bridal shower or rehearsal dinner dresses. See all of Ciarla's new bridesmaid dresses here, and check out our continuing Bridal Fashion Week coverage for more new bridesmaid dresses.—Kim Forrest

Austin Fashion Week Ends...

It was a busy, fun packed week filled with fashionable people, cocktails and artists of every kind. Makeup artists, hair stylists, photographers and designers packed into boutiques each night reviewing the work they've done over the past month. Models showed off our Bella Collection in sweet, candy colors at the Eye Candy Photography Studio.

At Touch of Sass boutique, models lined up and showed off our little white dress collection previewing two new designs from "La Femme en Vol" Spring 2011 and our new Tear Drop Gown in Poppy Red.

Millinery designer Lana Chu was kind enough to lend us her gorgeous hats which really gave the collection that vintage vibe.

The CW Austin interviewed me in the CIARLA Atelier where we discussed plans for the future and favorite brides of the past.

Interview with Jessica Ciarla

Although I had a blast and met some really talented and wonderful people, I'm looking forward to a more relaxing week come Monday.

Brides and Maid of Honor We Love...

I love hearing that a bridesmaid loves her CIARLA dress and plans to wear it again after the wedding she bought it for.

Recent bride Blake, who was married in Palm Beach Florida at the Rybovich Marina, picked the CIARLA Sophia dress in sunset for her Maid of Honor and sister Lauren. She let all of her bridesmaids pick their own dresses in the same color palette which made for a beautiful, vogue style bridal party.

The sisters looked gorgeous in every picture together and the dresses complimented each other perfect without being "matchy matchy". We love how mother of the bride also coordinated with a deeper coral color and flower, strap gown.

Congratulations Blake!
