Jovian Mandagie is fast becoming one of my favourite designers.
His latest collection, Orked by JM is oh-so-pretty!
I used to dislike his bridal dresses because I felt they were a bit too heavy. I prefer something simpler and more classic. I personally think that sometimes, less is more.
But lately, JM's designs, bridal and non, are simply breathtaking. He kept it simple and sleek. And that really hits the spot for me. I think his cut is really flattering for most women and I just love the silhouette that he came up with.
I say most, because, his ready made kurungs doesn't fit me perfectly because I'm shorter than average (or petite, if you want to be fancy) and chubbier. My proportion is a bit off these days, haha.
The name Orked is apt for this collection, since every design feels very feminine. The soft, flowy lines and the pastel colours are just so beautiful. It is very difficult to resist this one.
When it came out, I was on the website, patiently waiting for it to load. There were so many that I love and wanted to put in my cart. But, I resisted. And after checking the sizing, I felt a bit better, because it wouldn't fit me perfectly.
The next day while at work, I took a look again. Saw a dress that I missed the night before and instantly felt in love. Checked the sizing and to my delight, it would fit me well. Except for the length, obviously. I thought about it for a while, battling between my needs and wants :p
Well, my wants won. Safe to say that I'll be picking up my dress on the release date at the Tesco nearest to my place.
This Jovian is surely something. No woman can resist his designs. He's powerful alright! Sorry husbands out there. Hehe.
For all of you who haven't gotten your hands on Orked by JM, share me some tips on self control.
