We're In Love With This Filipino Designer
Who isn't a fan of huge dresses? While scrolling on Instagram the other day we came across this photo of bridesmaids in black dresses! Black! But these aren't your typical long, flowy prom dresses. No, these dresses were classically structured, their folds were designed and fixed (who's got time for Mother Nature to ruin a photo op by blowing your dress up?) and their silhouettes seemed to be taken straight from a fairytale.
Meet Mark Bumgarner, the man behind these breathtakingly amazing designs. Although he doesn't have a website yet, you look at his work on his Instagram and Facebook. Below are some of our favorite picks. Oh how we wish we could shoot an editorial with these dresses!
