couture dress

Black Swan

Phuong of Dresses by P.M.N launched her brand in April of 2014. I have had the pleasure of working with her a few times, modeling her wedding dresses. She started out making traditional American wedding dresses: all white, beautiful trains, stunning beading. Recently she began to add red accents to her gowns, inspired by the color of traditional wedding dresses from her homeland, Vietnam. You can see the beauty of her red couture pieces here.

I thought it could be very cool to mix the purple with black together to create a pop effect since the two colors usually look very good together

While at Phuong's house for a fitting, she showed me a new piece she was working on; something unlike anything else she'd ever done- a black gown. Though it's said that black is not a color but rather the absence of light, I still say it's my favorite color. I knew that I had to get some photos in this dress, so we made it happen.


If you're in need of a showstopper for your wedding, I would recommend checking out her sample sale dresses or see about getting your own one-of-a-kind dress. The material and sewing technique she uses on her gowns are beyond perfect and worth every penny.
