Today’s dress is a textured dream of luxury. This lush and rich gown, Channing, comes from our latest collection, and was debuted on the runway in October. A true ballgown, Channing has a fitted bodice to the natural waist, then a full ballgown with chapel train. The ruched bodice is accented with handmade beaded flowers that flow organically from the neckline to below the waist. The full skirt has flawlessly placed pick-ups to add volume. If all of that wasn’t enough, we upped the texture ante with multiple luxurious fabrics. The dress has a layer of silk satin draped with tulle. These two together make the dress whimsical and lush. This dress is great on all body types and perfect for any time of year. It does tend to be on the more formal side, but can be dressed down for a more casual feel. This dress can be found on trunk shows and coming soon to stores. For more information, pricing and locations email us at info@AnneBarge.com.

As the Golden Globes get closer and closer the media starts to anticipate what celebrities will wear. To help them with their predictions, they turned to the experts at Chic Little Devil Style House. In this clip you can spot not one, but two Anne Barge designs. The first Anne Barge to appear in the clip is the white floral gown that she picks up as having a bridal feel. The second Anne Barge gown is the blush beauty hanging in front of the white floral gown. To get more information on these styles email us at info@AnneBarge.com, and a huge thank you to Chic Little Devil Style House!

This is day two of being snowed in at our house, and cabin fever had begun to set in. So, I decided to teach my daughter one of the most fun parts of being a girl…twirling in a fabulously full skirt. Every woman out there knows what I am talking about, and at some point in your life you have chosen a dress simply because when you twirl the skirt twirls with you. You can feel the whooshing of the skirt as it lifts into the air and the pull of it as it falls back down to the earth again. Why not have a wedding dress that twirls too, especially if the part of the wedding you are most excited about is the dance floor! Here are some great gowns to choose from.

Our beautiful bride,Molly, met Anne at a trunk show at Kleinfeld in New York, and together they found her perfect dress. She saw LF161 (the style number of the dress she is wearing) right after it went down the runway before it was in stores. Trunk shows are perfect for finding the latest styles and being the first to wear them. Doesn’t she look flawless? Thank you so much Molly for sending us these pictures of your big day!

It’s that time of the week again…time to show you up close and personal an Anne Barge masterpiece. Today’s dress ,Carter, comes from the most recent Anne Barge couture collection, and is a dream of Chantilly lace. The silhouette of Carter is a very straightforward strapless A-line with dropped waist. To take it to a whole new level, beading and embroidery explode out of the side of the dress. Gorgeous taffeta strands join lace,crystals and pearls for a swirl of detail. Not only does the traditional cut of this dress make it look great on the body, but the perfect placement of the beaded motif make it flattering to the curves. Carter is perfect for all shapes and sizes. It will work in any location and any time of year making it easily one of our most versatile gowns. For more information, pricing or locations please contact us at info@AnneBarge.com. This dress can be requested or found on trunk show.

Check out this amazing photo shoot of our bride Mia. After her photographer went ill on the day of her wedding, a friend photographer Emily, decided another bridal portrait was in order. They all put back on their wedding attire and headed out for a day of shooting in this gorgeous Californina orchard. Thank you so much to Southern Weddings for this beautiful blog post, Emily of Gem Photo for the shots, and Mia for being a beautiful Anne Barge bride.
