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

{Continued from Part One}

no. 6 Stopping by Sarah Seven

If I’ve never mentioned how much I adore Sarah Seven.. well… let it be known.  She is adorable.  Her new collection?  Equally so.  She’s a fellow PNW-er (Pacific North Westerner) so, needless to say, I have an affinity for her relaxed, cas-glam vibe. A stop by her showroom was a total treat!  Here are four new looks- a delightful play of  metallic laces, spun gold, and sequenced tulle.

no. 7 Australian Chic from Amanda Garret

While in NY, I had the great pleasure of being introduced to the minimalistic, yet incredibly stunning looks from Sydney-based designer Amanda Garret.  The mini sequence dress below was my very favorite from the collection.. It’s take-your-breath-away beautiful…

no. 8 Sareh Nouri New York

Meeting talented new designers is one of my favorite things about market.  I’m as all over the up-and-coming as I am the seasoned genius’ behind the established, tried-and-true labels.   Basically, fresh fashion creativity in all its forms is fab in my book.  Which brings me to introduce a snippet from the newly launched Sareh Nouri New York collection!  I love the romantic styling and textured skirts on these two pretties:

no. 9 Rafael Cennamo’s Stunners

Some collections are light, airy and take your breath away.  And some collections are drop. dead. gorgeous.  I’d put Rafael Cennamo’s couture designs in that category.  When I’m face to ‘face’ withe these beauts, I can’t help but pour over the incredible construction and immaculate embellishments.  Is it possible to have an aura of couture?  If so, these gowns have it!  Rafael rounded this season’s collection out with both chic, slim-fit styles and beautiful ball gowns.

no. 10 Embracing Mother Nature

When this glowing mama walked the runway at Pnina Tornai, first I noticed how totally lovely she looked in the soft pink gown.  Then of course, my mind ran wild with curiosity!  During the post-show, I caught up briefly with Jenette Kruszka- the PR Director for Kleinfeld, where the gowns are sold, and she gave me the scoop.  This gorgeous model walks for Pnina every season, and this season she happened to be pregnant.  Pnina was inspired to design a gown just for her so she could walk in the show.  Sooo sweet ♥

Well that’s a wrap, my fashion-frenzied friends.  Our highlights/re-caps from the long weekend are complete AND I still have so. much. more to share.  Stay tuned for trends and more juicy fashion from the runway in our weekly ‘Fashion Friday’ segment, and in the meantime, pour over the full collections here.

Fashion Friday: Sheathy and Chic
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

The classic sheath silhouette made a comeback on the Spring 2013 runways.  A great sheath dress reminds me of refined elegance, maturity, and sophistication…  Traditional sheaths fit close around the hips and taper toward the hemline, creating a very tailored look.  However, a bit of room and flow at the hem is more figure- flattering for a bride with some curves.

Are you thinking of a sheath?  One of these just might fit your fancy!

no. 1 Carolina Herrera no.2 Oscar de la Renta no. 3 Monique Lhuillier

no. 4 Elizabeth Fillmore no. 5 Rafael Cennamo no. 6 Amsale

no. 7 Monique Lhuillier no. 8 Theia no. 9 Romona Keveza

no. 10 Temperley London no. 11 Mark Zunino no. 12 Marchesa

no. 13 Theia no. 14 Elizabeth Fillmore no. 15 Sarah Janks

no. 16 Amsale no. 17 Romona Keveza no. 18 Christos

What’s your take?  Are you a sheath kind of gal?

Wishing you a lovely little weekend…

Fashion Friday: Introducing Rafael Cennamo
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

This week flew right on by, but I surely wanted to send you into the weekend with some inspiring bridal style.  One of the highlights of April bridal week in NYC was stopping in to see the new White Couture collection from eveningwear designer, Rafael Cennamo.  I think these photos will say it all…. incredible fabrics, unique styling, and luxe bridal beauty… Swoon! 

The accordian-folded skirt on that last one is to-die-for… (I was gawking…totally in awe when I saw it…)

Have a fabulous weekend…
