Sheer detailing, soft tulle, and ruffles all make an appearance, as does a chic, trendy mock-neck top on a sleek, form-fitting gown.

The Spring 2019 Francesca Miranda collection is full of dramatic gowns, complete with intricate beadwork, lace appliqués, and illusion details. One of the most notable looks is a larger-than-life ball gown, with a strapless V-neckline, corset bodice, and fabulous beading comprised of crystal flower buds with sparkling "vines" blooming across a full, layered skirt.
The Francesca Miranda Spring 2020 wedding dress collection takes cues from the golden socialite era of the 1960s, featuring billowing sleeves, flouncy ruffles and intricate beading. Miranda infused a contemporary feel into each look with plunging necklines, relaxed silhouettes, and feather details.
