Trend Snippet: Sheer Statement
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

After each runway season, our Fashion Friday posts turn towards trends. This past October, there was a serious sheer statement on the New York bridal runway.  Let’s be honest, this high fashion look isn’t for every bride, but it sure is stunning, sexy and utterly glamorous. The dynamic contrast of the beadwork, embroidery and crystal embellishments against translucent fabrics make these gowns altogether noteworthy…pure art in my book.

no. 1 Gown by Eve of Milady

no. 2, 3 & 4 Dresses by Reem Acra

no. 5 & 6 Dresses by Hayley Paige

no. 7 Gown by Badgley Mischka

Beauties, aren’t they?

 I have something so so special for you on Monday, a creative project that I’m over the moon about.  It’s a photoshoot that is romantic down to the core, a heartfelt expression of all that is sacred and beautiful about weddings and I can’t wait to share. Until then, I hope your weekend is sheer perfection..xo

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.

Trend Snippet: Finale Dresses
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

After we’ve had the pleasure of seeing nearly every dress in a bridal designer’s new collection… there is always the anticipated finale dress.  Sometimes it’s highly climactic…. a statement dress…something a little different, more avant garde, a piece the designer takes particular pride in,  other times, there is a more subtle close to the show.  Here are eighteen finale dresses in every variety from this October’s New York bridal fashion week. We’ll let these dresses speak for themselves and you can be the judge.

Sweet Classics by 1. Badgley Mischka 2. Christos 3. Romona Keveza

Mermaid Stunners by 1. Ines di Santo 2. Lazaro 3. Jim Hjelm
