Dramatic Dresses

Shine Bright with Sparkles: Wearing a sparkly dress can never go wrong. Designers like Primavera Couture, Jovani, and Portia and Scarlett to name a few provide clients so many wonderful options when it comes to picking the best sparkly, dramatic dress. When it’s your time to shine, whether it’s for prom or a party, you want to make sure that you look your best! In fact, our model in the silver, sparkly dress by Portia and Scarlett was given the unique name of “Ice Princess” by one of the little girls who passed us by during our urban photo shoot in Tyson’s Corner, Northern Virginia. When you feel and look your best, others definitely notice!  Alongside looking and feeling stunning, these dresses are captured beautifully on the camera, as shown through elegant  studio and fashionable  outdoor portraits; thus, you get the best of both worlds.

“Cinderella” gown is lightweight, yet dramatic for anyone who loves red and dramatic look. Perfect for contrasting outdoor portraits, especially in contrasting urban environment like shown in this photo taken at Tyson’s corner galleria, in Fairfax county.

As an accessory, feathers can always be added to create a unique look, as shown with the black and red feathers added onto the Jovani dress.

Feathers/Ruffles:

Having feathers or ruffles on your dress will always allow for a grand entrance. Mac Duggal and Terani Couture have excelled in making these dresses dramatic by adding ruffles or feathers to the ends of the dresses and providing an adequate train. The feathers added on to the navy blue and blush pink dresses from Terani Couture add a dramatic element to the dress while keeping it perfectly balanced with the sparkles on the top half of the dress, and it provides a nice, fitted look which is perfect for pictures. Furthermore, the ruffles on the blue and red dress by Terani Couture are perfect for those who are a fan of having a train with their dress. Especially for prom, these dresses will have you winning prom queen and looking like one.

Minimalistic Dresses:

Go Big with Ball Gowns: If you are someone who still wants to feel like a princess with a big ball gown, but wants to keep it simple and elegant, Signature Dresses has some amazing options for you. Mac Duggal and Tarik Ediz among many have designed certain dresses that have minimal designs while providing the Cinderella look. Additionally, on camera, these dresses look absolutely stunning! When captured through the lens, it makes you look like royalty. We have our very own Aurora in the blush pink dress by Tarik Ediz.   Signature Dresses has a variety of options for everyone, whether one is looking for something dramatic or simple. Simple, elegant dresses create a beautiful, feminine look like the fitted, red Jovani dress pictured. While some may be fitted perfectly to your body showing off your amazing curves, others may have a striking slit on the side that will be sure to turn heads. The dress by Nicole Bakti has a stunning design on the bodice of the dress and provides a long bodycon structure that matches perfectly. The navy blue dress designed by Faviana is minimalistic, yet makes a statement with its slit and the flowy structure of the dress, as seen in the picture photographed the model above. Especially, if you prefer outdoor photography, bright colors and a flowy dress in the wind are the perfect combination.
