Wiederhoeft Presents FW23 Collection EURYDICE
Emerging designer Jackson Wiederhoeft presents the Fall Winter ‘23 bridal and ready-to-wear collection, EURYDICE. The designs boast mythological references with a modern, post-gender flare.
The brand has been recognized for its modern bridal wear collections, that being said, EURYDICE offers no shortage of contemporary bridal silhouettes and cuts. The show opens with a classic white, plasticized taffeta gown. A squared sheer panel covers the bodice with knots at the shoulders. Additionally, underneath is a cream-colored pipestem corset. Other wedding looks include the puff-sleeved tuxedo corset and belted skirt, as well as the satin corset and skirt combo with chandelier embroidery.
With inspiration from Greek mythology, the collection includes several folklore references. For looks two, three, and four, a triplet of models walk the runway in different colored boat neck dresses and sequined gloves. Perhaps, this could be an allusion to the Fates of Greek mythology. In a similar silhouette is also the baby blue dress with a Greek figure serving as the motif. There’s also the more casual cropped button-up in a powdery pink paired with dark blue culottes. However, the main element, was the choice to wrap the model in a shimmery garland of pink roses. This was likely a reference to Persephone, the goddess of Spring.
Jackson Wiederhoeft studied at the Parsons School of Design, achieving “Women’s Designer of the Year.” Afterwards, they went on to work for renowned designer Thom Browne for several years. During that time, they specifically focused on the brand’s embroidery. Wiederhoeft’s debut, Spooky Couture, is a 13-piece collection with flashy Victorian themes, also contextualizing a story ballet. In 2020, Wiederhoeft saw the launch of its first bridal collection. EURYDICE is the brand’s ninth collection to date.
