10 Dresses we Love from a Denver-based Bridal Designer

Guillermo Pharis Bridal
1615 California St, 4th floor Suite #411
Denver, Colorado

Guillermo Pharis Bridal is a by-appointment only designer bridal salon owned by renowned American fashion designer, Guillermo Pharis. Guillermo started drawing wedding dresses and watching couture shows at the  age of 12, and later attended fashion school focusing on evening & bridal wear.  Now he is a wealth of knowledge in the bridal gown industry, with 10 years of experience and plenty of practice selling dresses all around the world.  His prices are competitive to the market, even though he gives one-on-one service to clients and offers free alterations for those who buy gowns in the studio.  His shop has dozens of versatile dresses, with all different shapes, fabrics, sizes and colors.  Guillermo specializes in custom-made bridal gowns, but also gives clients the option to shop from an inventory of 300+ dresses. Luckily for us, one of his two US stores is located right here in the Rockies – in Downtown Denver, Colorado!  We compiled a list of 10 of our current favorite dresses from his artful inventory, so keep scrolling to see the couture you could be catching eyes with on your wedding day!

1. Clara

Clara is a strapless, classic-bodice gown, one of our many favorites from Guillermo’s New York Fashion Week featured collection “Whisper”.  We love the glamorous design of the asymmetrical high-low over-skirt, delicate pleated tulle in the front, and of course, the intricate handmade fabric roses.

2. Chloe

Chloe is made out of soft tulle and lace with frosted crystal sequined lace, and is a gorgeous option for fashion forward brides looking for fitted dress with modern details.  We love the see-through bustier, structured bones, sweetheart neckline, and the cinched removable sleeves.  Plus, the lining color can be adjusted to white and off white (photos show ivory) for whatever gown color you are going for!

3. Elaine

Elaine is a full-skirt ballgown with a sheer structured bodice, beaded dimensional flower lace, and removable off-the-shoulder sleeves. The already artful dress is also embellished with water crystals, giving you an extra sparkle as you say “I do”. Guillermo is known for his full-skirt couture designs, making any bride feel whimsical and glamorous in a gown like Elaine!

4. Eiffel

Eiffel is a stunning taffeta gown with a full tiered skirt and (our favorite part) an off-the shoulder cape.  The dress features beautiful handmade pleating and the cape is fully removable – allowing the gown to transform into a sweetheart neckline for a second look during your big day.

5. Thea

Thea is one of Guillermo’s best sellers in Europe and New York, so you just know it’s fashion-forward. Thea is inspired by the elegance of Hollywood & Elizabeth Taylor, and we love its sophisticated, glamorous, timeless look. The off-the shoulder detail is fully detachable for a versatile design, and the train’s extra long bow will give you the most memorable entrance!

6. Molly

We absolute adore Molly – the perfect dress for a rehearsal dinner, reception outfit change, or the coolest courthouse wedding. Molly is fashion forward, chic, timeless, and was designed to bring the party everywhere.  We love the strapless cut and stylish puff-sleeves with a fitted half arm.  Plus, with help from Guillermo, you can also transform Molly into a full wedding gown mixing it with the Judy Overskirt or Florencia Skirt.

7. Ciana

Ciana is truly an A line ball-gown to remember. This design features a maxi skirt with a high-low peplum, made of exclusive fabric designed to look like feathers (hand-made in organza with a mind-blowing technique).  Ciana is elegant, romantic and overall just *fun* for the fun Rocky Mountain bride.  We love the stunning train for an unforgettable entrance and exit down the aisle!

8. Greta

Greta is simply a timeless and beautiful dress, and we can see our Rocky Mountain brides wearing this one at a historic venue or even a chic courthouse ceremony. Greta was inspired in 1950’s Hollywood (named after Greta Garbo), and the sophisticated silhouette truly represents the elegance and glamour of one of the most iconic decades in fashion.  We love the fully-detachable big bow, giving you a dreamy, dramatic train and versatile style.

9. Aurora

Made of Italian mikado (the finest organza), Aurora features beautiful beading work and a stunning separate top that’s fully beaded by hand. The top gives an architectural design with unique 3D draping & pleating, and we love this show-stopping take on a traditional ballgown.

10. Luz

Luz is one of Guillermo’s best sellers, and we can see why.  The gown features an A line skirt and asymmetric bodice with pleated organza and delicate beaded lace.  We love the big half-bow, which is designed on the right side of the waist but can be placed on the back.

Now that you’ve seen just how gorgeous Guillermo’s gowns are, it’s time to shop!  According to Guillermo’s expertise, he recommends the following general bridal shopping timeline:
– 6-10 months to make a custom gown
– 4-6 months for made-to-order styles from his 300 dress inventory
– 3-5 appointments in total, including your fitting
Happy bridal gown shopping, Rocky Mountain brides!  Book your appointment here with Guillermo Pharis Bridal Salon in Downtown Denver to make your dress dreams come true.
