Letter from the editor
In a white and white studio, among white and white things, shooting a white and airy fashion story for the April issue, our guest editor, designer Alexander Arngoldt, assured me that if we talk about an ideal wedding, then the bride should be dressed in her grandmother's wedding dress taken out of the chest for such an occasion …

In the new season, no one remembers the well-known "doll" image with a "tulle" veil and a fluffy dress. Today's brides think about their own comfort, even choosing non-standard moves.

And if the choice fell on a Haute Couture dress, then its luxury is compensated by natural make-up. A true fashionist will always find a reason to try on something extraordinary and leave it in your wardrobe. And the wedding is one of them. The main thing is to remain yourself. But if for some reason this option does not suit you, you can turn into a “robber bride”,which then for a long time will be remembered by all your friends and others. It is only important not to forget to take with you self-irony, a couple of crazy friends and together with them come up with the craziest scenario of a trip around the world for your own wedding. And I understand this idea very well: after all, my wedding was just that …

Closer to the body
Lingerie style is the quintessence of femininity, which is why designers return to it from year to year. This spring is more generous than ever with dresses stylized as women's combinations, shorts that look like underwear, and tops in the form of bustier corsets.
From time immemorial, rings have symbolized the most beautiful feeling in the world - a bond between loving hearts that can last a lifetime. This is a tribute to traditions and family values, it is engagement rings that symbolize serious intentions and a strong future family.
The roots of the custom of giving a ring with a precious stone to a beloved woman are deeply rooted in history. Today, this tradition is spreading more and more widely in the world, forcing jewelers to fantasize, remaining within the strict framework of engagement jewelry design.
