Day One: NYC Bridal Market Top Ten {Part Two}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

{Continued from Part One}

no. 6 A Play of Fabric + Texture

At the always-anticipated Douglas Hannant show, we saw a rich play of fabric and textured details.  Below: A stunning cream moiré mermaid gown with embroidered and beaded bodice and sleeves

no. 7 Ballgowns Done Beautifully by Lazaro

This season there were dozens and dozens of ballgowns featured on the runway, but Lazaro’s full-skirted beauties are always like a dream…layers of tulle straight from a fantasy…

no. 8 Runway Trend: Sheer

Haley Paige pushed the envelope this market with two very transparent, made-for-the-runway looks.  They received quite the response, and, at the end of the presentation, Haley was wildly applauded for her artistry.

no. 9 Blooming Elegance

As if the Marchesa collection could get any more gorgeous, the cascade of luscious, oversized blooms catapults this gown right into our top ten!

no. 10 Bridesmaids Go Bold

Last but not least, I love the bold hues I’m seing for bridesmaids!  Here are four looks from the JLM Runway– the final show of day one.

Hankering for more fashion?  Stay tuned for three more days of recaps and check out the full collections that will be appearing here.

Fashion Friday: Five Dresses for Fall
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

It’s hard to believe, but autumn is just around the corner… I can already feel the buzz of back-to-school…the joys of late summer produce… and the richness of dahlias blooming.  While it’s not quite time to pull out the cable knits, here are five fall wedding dresses that are the epitome of elegance and beauty.  An added strap here and there… a touch of a sleeve… the luxury of fine fabric: all bridal elements that add to the exquisiteness of autumn formalwear.

no. 1 Lazaro

no. 2 Douglas Hannant

no. 3 Temperley London

no. 4 Ines Di Santo

no. 5 Alvina Valenta

That’s really just a peek though… here are thirty fabulous fall dresses that I’ve hand-picked from the 2013 collections.

Happy Weekend

Trend Snippet: Pink Pretties
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

Happy Friday!  Whew… and it’s a holiday weekend too… hope you have something fun in store!  To send you off in style, I’ve selected a few lovelies from the new season of gowns… all with at least a dash of romantic, rosy pink!  I’m a huge fan of color in wedding gowns… for me, it doesn’t even need to be subtle, it only has to be done just right.
