Wedding Dress Designer of the Week: Anne Bowen

Every week, we’ll feature dresses from the newest collection of one of your favorite designers—and tell you where you can buy ’em.

If you’re not the pretty-pretty-princess type and instead want a wedding gown that’s fashion-forward, modern, glamorous, and (tastefully) sexy, Anne Bowen’s selection of dresses might be right up your alley.

These gowns work well at a nontraditional venue like LongView Gallery, Torpedo Factory Art Center, or perhaps an intimate setting such as a restaurant.

For something a bit more traditional, check out the Promise gown (above, right), a super-sparkly beaded bodice with a flattering A-line skirt (and pockets!).

Anne Bowen’s Fall 2012 collection will be available at Chevy Chase Bridal early next year. See more new Anne Bowen wedding dresses after the jump.
