Glamour’s Instagram feed of 2013 gowns making their debut at the recent New York Bridal Market garnered lots and lots of attention from couture-obsessed brides-to-be. But no gown got more love in less time than Winnie Couture’s stunning “Esme” mermaid gown, which tallied up a whopping 10,000 ♥’s in just three hours.
Behold that amazing gown, along with a few more of our newly unveiled 2013 favorites from the exceptionally talented Winnie Chlomin, whose internationally beloved-by-brides design house is now based in Beverly Hills—but got its start right here in Houston, with the Winnie Couture Houston Flagship Salon.
See a Winnie Couture gown that drives you wild with wanting? Hold tight, lovelies. The new dresses will hit Winnie’s Houston salon right around December. We can’t think of a better gift for the holidays!

Gleaming new flooring, gorgeous new window displays, fabulously flattering new lighting, a prettied-up powder room and the addition of a third fitting room—the Winnie Couture Houston flagship salon has a fresh new look. What hasn’t changed at Winnie Couture is the doting attention brides have come to expect from this haven of heavenly gowns by Hong-Kong-born, Houston-educated and now Beverly-Hills-based designer Winnie Chlomin.
