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

Day two in New York was chock full of incredible shows… it’s feels impossible to pick just ten of the highlights.  Alas, it must be done… my job, sometimes, is incredibly difficult ♥

no. 1 Sheer Beauty + Pleated Tulle

Reem Acra’s presentation was one of my absolute favorites of the weekend.  Featuring edgy, embroidered illusion gowns and innovative pleated veils, it was one stunner after another on the runway. 

no. 2 Gone Green Couture

This season, Romona Keveza gave going green a whole new meaning. Her couture evening gowns were featured in pastel, lime, and shades of apple and she even pushed the envelope with a fresh mint bridal ballgown!

no. 3 Claire’s Paradise

Oh Claire, how I love you and your gorgeous gowns… For Fall 2013, the celebrated Claire Pettibone unveiled a collection of earthly delights made for the modern goddess.  Spending an hour in Claire’s Garden of Eden was, without a doubt, a highlight of the weekend! 

no. 4 Reveling in Romantic Luxury at St. Pucchi

Luxe laces, ostrich feather embellishments, and vertical pleating elements had me reveling in romance during my stop at St. Pucchi.  Here are three favorites from the new collection by designer Rani Totman.

no. 5 Awe-Inspired at Monique

There was one moment during the entire weekend that absolutely took my breath away… it was in the last minutes of Monique Lhuillier’s fairytale runway show.   Over a dozen models lined up in the new gowns…dream dresses of silk, lace and tulle in Monique’s signature feminine style.  The collection, the ambiance… everything was pure magic!

Stay Tuned for Part Two…

Fashion Friday: Tufts of Tulle

One thing is for sure… there was no shy use of tulle in the Spring 2013 bridal collections.  During bridal week, I found this graceful, sheer fabric gathered, draped, layered, tiered, ruffled, and tufted in every which way!  Peek at the styles below and you’ll see what I mean.  First up- a wow tulle cape by ODLR!

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

Trend Snippet: Beautiful Backs
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

During this season’s bridal week, we were continually awe-inspired by gowns with beautiful backs.  As the models traipsed back up the runway, our photographer captured the sophisticated details and unique styling.  As you’ll see, there is no formula to speak of… Although, we might give Kate Middleton a smidge of credit for inspiring the daring notion of a bit more coverage. And still, the low, low, back is always timeless and elegant.
