LOS ANGELES - Jan. 7, 2015 - PRLog -- LA-based Designer Lauren Elaine proudly announces the launch of the vintage-inspired ‘Reception Collection’ on January 9th 2015, expanding the popular Lauren Elaine Bridal line. Curated especially for destination weddings, elopements, wedding receptions and rehearsals, the ‘Reception Collection’ offers a variety of fete-worthy retro-feel frocks in tea length silhouettes and unique fabrications, including Ombre tulle and 3-D lace flowers.  The ‘Reception Collection’ continues the USA-made tradition of the Lauren Elaine brand, and features competitive retail price points ranging from approximately 400-800.00USD.

“We’ve created this collection in direct response to a growing demand for non-traditional wedding gowns. Whether it’s a dress for the first dance at a wedding reception, or a dress for the bride who’s opted for a civil ceremony, weddings and related celebrations come in all varieties, and we really wanted to embrace that,” explains Designer Lauren Elaine. “Additionally, many brides don’t want to wear the same dress they wore for their ceremony. The reception is all about the celebration. It’s a party! And the ‘Reception Collection’ offers bridal dresses that are fun to wear, and are perfect for the post-nuptials festivities,” says Elaine. “The femininity and overall prettiness of 1950’s silhouettes have always been a favorite of mine. I wanted to capture that lady-like elegance in the ‘Reception Collection,’ while keeping the looks wearable and flattering on all shapes and sizes.”

Along with the easy-to-wear A-line shapes and tea-length hemlines, the ‘Reception Collection’ boasts lady-like charm with luxurious textures and details usually reserved for gowns of higher price points-- and lady-like names for each of the four initial styles: the “Priscilla”, the “Shirley”, the “Lana,” and the “Margaret.”  The “Shirley” features a signature ombre tulle skirt and bodice, available in 3 colors (Blushing, Mint-to-Be, and Something Blue.)  Swarovski crystals and three-dimensional embroidered flowers pepper the cropper-mermaid silhouette of the “Margaret,” with French corded lace and satin adorning the more classic “Priscilla” and “Lana” styles.

A themed, editorial lookbook shot exclusively in Las Vegas accompanies the launch of the ‘Reception Collection,’ and highlight’s the collection’s fun and retro mood. The release of the Vegas-themed fashion film is slated for release the following week.  The ‘Reception Collection’ is available for purchase at as of January 9th, 2015.
