So how much does a gown like the above cost? Khalil says the price brides are willing to pay has definitely gone up in recent years, with the average Steven Khalil dress costing around $15,000.
He credits the spike to demand. Not only for him, specifically, but for the details, fabric and embellishments.
"For my clientele, it’s becoming a lot more detailed, and more opulent," he says of current bridal trends.
"A lot more of a grander look, a lot more detailed veils. But it’s still very diverse too, you’ve got simple gowns as well that are coming through. The slip dress - a beautiful simple satin slip - is definitely back."
"We went through that fishtail stage and that fitted gown stage, but now we are really are in that full wedding gown era – and it’s really beautiful because I love a full wedding gown and the idea of a traditional looking bride," the designer says.
Khalil likes to see brides up to a year in advance for their first consultation, saying that if he could give women who are searching for the perfect dress one piece of advice it would be: wear something timeless and something that you feel the most comfortable in.
"You might think you want a full gown but when you put it on you might feel silly in it, he says.
"It’s about what is going to make you feel magical. Try a few things on and seeing how each shape makes you feel."
