A Brief History of Wedding Dress Designer Francesca Miranda

Miranda studied fashion merchandising at University of South Florida and Lake Land College. In 1994, Miranda launched a menswear casual line for department stores in Colombia, and a few years later inaugurated her first boutique with her label, "Francesca Miranda" with a menswear line. She then expanded to women's wear when opening her flagship store in Barranquilla, Colombia where she sells both men and women’s Pret A Porter, and Evening wear lines. In 2010, she launched her first bridal collection alongside Group 868 Inc showroom. Francesca Miranda’s designs are sold worldwide throughout South America, North America, Europe, and Asia.

Francesca Miranda Collection History

The Fall 2017 Francesca Miranda bridal collection gives a nod to fairytales, featuring pearly beading, lace, floral patterns and butterfly appliqués. The collections also uses color—both china pattern blue and creamy gold—to set itself apart from a classically all-white market. 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 Francesca Miranda Fall 2018 wedding dress collection features all of the designer’s signature moves, but with an extra dose of the ethereal. One of the most notable gowns is a gold fringe wedding dress with a plunging neckline and cap sleeves.

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.
