Fashion Friday: 4 Reasons to Love Illusion Straps
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014

Fanciful bead work and embroidery were two major trends we spotted on the Spring 2014 runway, and we especially loved the way it showed up on sheer fabric. We’ve already covered illusion necklines,  and today we’re zeroing in on a smaller amount of fabric. Substantial illusion straps add just enough sparkle to otherwise simple gowns, and we love the way the look subtly draws attention to the bride’s face. Below follows four of our favorite varieties of the look!

no. 1 Amsale • no. 2 Christos

no. 3 Kenneth Pool • no. 4 Ines Di Santo

Look to Love: The Sheer Corset
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014

Call it the Pnina Tornai effect—corsets are coming up sheer and sexy for Spring! We saw plenty of exposed boning on the runway this season, and we think the look is great for the bride who wants to show off her hard-earned wedding figure. More trends we noticed: draped backs, illusion necklines, modern peplums, and the Carrie Bradshaw flower corsage.

Trend Snippet: The Ball Gown is Back
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Wedding Dress, Wedding Inspiration

Sigh. There’s something just plain magical about a full, floor-length skirt, right? When it comes to looking like a princess on your wedding day, nothing sets the tone quite like a classic ball gown. Lucky for us, designers answered our fairy tale fantasies this season, sending one dreamy dress after another down the runway.

A few of our favorites:

no. 1 Amsale • no. 2 Romona Keveza • no. 3 Kenneth Pool

no. 4 Austin Scarlett • no. 5 Mark Zunino • no. 6 Maggie Sottero

Does anyone have big dress shopping plans this weekend?

Happy Friday!

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

{Continued from Part One}

no. 6 A Love Letter to New York

It was crisp, clean lines and ‘pure, archetypal shapes’ at Amsale’s presentation of her American Metropolitan-inspired collection.  Dress design, ‘distilled to its essence’ couldn’t be more exquisite, agreed?1

no. 7  Print Obsession

I’m totally, utterly, and completely in love with these silk chiffon print dresses by Amsale… They are feminine and floaty all the while perfectly modern and chic.  I can’t get enough!

no. 8 Crystallized Beauty

If you’ve never gotten up close and personal with a Rivini gown, I’d run (not walk) to the nearest retailer that offers this line.  These are the kind of dresses that move like water and glisten like stars… For Fall 2013, designer Rita Vinieres worked with translucent layers and crystal embellishments to design a collection that ‘…feels like a snowflakes on ice… fragile and unique…’  The fronts (and the backs) of these dresses are equally incredible.

no. 9 Siren Silhouettes

Good golly these Kenneth Pool gowns are gorgeous.  Designer, Amsale Aberra, kicked up the thermostat a few notches with silhouettes inspired by passion, drama, and seductive glamour.  It was a delightful contrast to the tailored look of her namesake collection, something for every bride!

no. 10 Platinum Perfection

Day two wasn’t complete without a stop at Watters!  Since just about everything in my closet is grey (sort of kidding), I couldn’t help but fall head over heels for this platinum mermaid fit gown and ‘gilded’ gemstone veil.
