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

Here we are coming to the end of our bridal week highlights; and after four (and just a little more) exhausting and exhilarating full-on days of bridal runway,  the final day was just as exciting as the first- including not one but two ombre beauts!

no. 1 Mark Zunino’s Blushers

As a follow up to his bridal debut, Mark Zunino revealed his newest Kleinfeld’s-Exclusive collection including a handful of pretty numbers with blush tones and luxe embellishments (check out the lace, crystal beading and ombre shading below)!  For two seasons straight I’ve been glued to his gowns… I think bigger than big things are coming for Mark Zunino in the world of bridal.

no. 2 Violet Ombre at Kelly Faetanini

We’ve seen a few bridal designers now, do the oh-so-subtle ombre thing, but Kelly Faetanini unleashed an ombre look in all it’s glory, in gradient shades of violet feathers.   I don’t use the term jaw-dropping too often.. but this one was a definite wow in my book! 

no. 3 Oscar, Oscar, Oscar

Oscar de la Renta showed a small collection of classic couture this season… and I loved this one because those ruffles, tiers, and trim are so fabulous and so Oscar!

no. 4 Incredible Accessories

My time in NY wasn’t complete without a look at some gorgeous accessories.  When I stopped over at Jennifer Behr’s showroom, it was like eat your heart out.  Thank you very much, I will.  Aren’t these new pieces from her 2013 collection just lovely in all the best ways?

no. 5 Pnina’s Lavish Romance

Sitting at the Pnina Tornai show makes me giddy with excitement.  Because I know what’s coming is going to be lavishly romantic and over-the-top beautiful.  Like expected, she delivered.  I think this shot says it all….

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

{Continue from Part One}

no. 6 Austin Scarlett’s Bridal Debut

There were two moments of the entire weekend that really blew me away.  The first was the Monique finale. The second was at Austin Scarlett’s runway presentation.  The collection?  Truly beautiful, I was enchanted by his use of rich silks, printed fabrics, and pastel hues as shown below.  The moment that really gave me chills, though, was when he walked the runway at the very end.  He’s just sweet and lovely as can be.  It was momentous really… an up and coming designer making a splash.  It was not only a highlight of day three, but of the entire weekend.  

no. 7 Marveling Over Maggie

Always a bride’s favorite,  Maggie Sottero revealed several crowd-pleasers this season including a platinum ruffle gown and other glam silhouettes with out-of-this-world adornments. 

no. 8 Innovative Embellishments

Nobody is an innovator of embellishments like Badgley Mischka.  It’s always a true joy to pop in and see what these two design genius’ reveal!  I’m especially crushing on this raw-edged organza rosette bodice and the sheer, crystal-embellished gloves. 

no. 9 Birnbaum & Bullock’s  Sequence Pantsuit

I’m always in the mood for something on-the-fringe, so I was wide-eyed and pleasantly surprised when a model in this hot little pantsuit number strutted down the runway over at Birnbaum & Bullock.  Trés chic! 

no. 10  Wild & Yumi

Speaking of on-the-fringe, we wouldn’t expect anything less than a walk on the wild side over at Yumi Katsura. The presentation was unforgettable, featuring this bold red spaghetti strap gown in sustainable lace and ultra-retro, larger-than-life side bow.

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.

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

Whew!  Pardon the radio silence. It’s been a jam-packed weekend of bridal runway in New York; hopefully you’ve been catching the live-from-the-runway instagrams that we’ve posted on Facebook and Twitter.  We’re into the final day of market, running around the city seeing about a dozen more designers, but there are so many fab highlights to share!  Without further ado, here’s our top ten from day one.

no. 1 Corseted Elements by Vera Wang

In an all-ivory presentation of her signature gowns, Vera styled the newest collection with corset elements, dreamy laces and luxe embroidery that appeal equally to the classic bride, the true romantic, and the fashionista.

no. 2 Dennis Basso’s Couture Drama

Va va voom! I’m loving these drama-infused silhouettes by Dennis Basso.  A couture collection with wow factor always has a place in the highlights!

no. 3 Monique’s Feminine Romance: Bridesmaid Style

Seeing the feminine romance that is Monique Lhuillier in bridesmaid form was a total treat.  The center gown is one of my favorites from the weekend;  the fitted bodice is accented by a dropped waist and graceful tiered skirt- all in that very wearable shirred tulle.

no. 4 A Metallic Finale at Theia

Inspired by the Goddess,  designer Don O’Neill culminated his Fall 2013 runway presentation with a completely unique, rose gold and metallic ballgown silhouette.

no. 5 Lovely Temperley Laces

The always distinctive collection by Temperley London took a more classic, romantic turn this season with lots of lace, feminine shapes, and unforgettable elements of Temperley decadence.
