Designer Spotlight: Mikaella

This designer diffusion line ticks all the boxes when it comes to chic bridalwear

We get it, looking for the perfect dress for your big day can be a challenge at the best of times. What’s your personal style? Which designers do you admire? What will work in practical terms on the day? All of these factor into the decision of which dress will eventually become The One.


For brides-to-be looking for high-fashion gowns without the high-fashion price tag, Mikaella is a diffusion line from bridal boutique Paloma Blanca. Beautiful and show-stopping, their designs delicately skim the body and cling in all the right places, but they’re a far cry from the traditional corseted ball gowns if they’re really not your thing. If you like to show off your back, some of their dazzling backless numbers are designed to do just that, with statement bow and lace detailing to create some real wow factor. Other designs feature long flowing trains and delicate embroidery.

Here are a few of our favourite gowns from the latest collection. And to discover more of their designs visit mikaellabridal.com
