With wedding season upon us, WWD asked designers from around the world to imagine what Lady Gaga would wear for her holy matrimony. The Bride of the Decade, as the news outlet calls her, has made many fashion statements in her eclectic past. These beautiful sketches only add to her resumé of fantastical designers who support her. From what we know about Gaga, her wedding will either be a luxurious Hollywood bash or a Beverly Hillbillies hoedown - I mean, this girl collects her free range chicken eggs wearing Junya Watanabe after all. Either way the dress will fit the occasion, and heaven only knows what she has planned!
So what does a couturier create for one of the most recognized faces and voices in the universe? What type of dress would suit a woman who is completely unrestraint by fashionable boundaries? With every atelier just a phone call away, Gaga has virtually every living designer at her disposal.
Leaving it all up to the imagination, Gaga gave no spoilers to moot about her dress. “It will be totally for Taylor,” Gaga told WWD. “It’s all about my man. I haven’t really thought about anything specific yet but whatever it is, it will be totally for him.” It’s hard to believe Gaga will choose anything other than groundbreaking. Whether it’s a lacy frock or an out of this world spacesuit, there is one obvious certainty: her dress will stop the presses.
Having a hard time deciding if this is the women’s version of the Rook, or an entirely new design. For the most part it’s in keeping with the Rook aesthetic, but there are quite a few new design elements. What do you think?
Early steps in the fashion design process for production after a collection of influences had been found.
The first image shows design explorations within the same shape languages as the references, as well as open ideas for diversity. Not thinking too much about how it could be applied to the human figure.
Second image is an accumilation of first design ideas on a model with a focus on outer shapes /silhouette of the piece while sticking to the parameters.
Next step will be to narrow down the aspects that work well and are aesthetically pleasing to the recipient. I searched for more haute couture and will likely draw more inspiration from designers like Gareth Pugh, Haider Ackermann, Alessandra Marchi, Irina Chervenkova, Arzu Kaprol and Fendi.
