Recently we were invited to visit the flagship store of the Rania Hatoum Collection in downtown Orlando. The gowns were magnificent and it was a lovely party and a great chance to chat with the designer and marketing manager Nicole. The gowns were sleek and sophisticated, with unique cuts, hand beadwork, the finest silk fabrics and beautiful French lace. Some of my favorites were edgier designs that had interesting mixes of lace and tulle or totally glam dresses that would absolutely shine in the middle of a dance floor!
Being both Egyptian and Chinese, Rania Hatoum's cultural heritage translates into a brand that is big on detail, luxurious fabrics, elegance, and a style that's all her own. During private appointments, brides can work with the designer to create customized gowns by changing out beadwork colors, adding custom sashes, changing necklines and adding or removing straps. The gowns range in price from approximately $2,000-6,000. Here are some of my favorites!
