Inspired by city brides, Joe launches her eighth bridal collection entitled, "Amour pour la Romance" or Love for Romance, translated from French. Here, the designer demonstrates in eight bridal creations her dreamy appreciation for various bridal silhouettes.

The collection features classic silhouettes that individually exude romance and femininity. Joe successfully marries careful craftsmanship and fabric manipulation that result in intricately-made gowns. Her gowns seem familiar yet feel contemporary as she "[applied] new techniques in embellishing the gowns, like 3D embroidery—a hand-made technique that is made from multiple layers of threads and beadworks, thus embosses the patterns sewn in."

Being a hands-on designer, Joe understands what it means to tailor designs based on the bride's best assets. "I like designing for the woman's body. I want to show it off, but at the same time, create a mystery surrounding it," Joe explains. "All my pieces are custom-made; all made from scratch. The fabric is tailored to fit the body. Each bead, lace, and embellishment is sewn by hand."

Joe shares that this collection is especially made for modern city brides as she drew inspiration from architectural landscapes. "My last year's trip to Korea inspired me for this collection—the vibrant culture, the interesting architecture, and the intriguing women. I liked how despite the modernism of the country, the women remained girly and giggly. There's softness that's evident in the way they move and act."

She anchors this inspiration to women who favor sculpted gowns with maximum attention to details. Whether you are a city girl inclined to opulent or minimalist gowns, Joe San Antonio promises you a dress that will let you walk down the aisle in your best element.
