From visiting with old friends and making new ones, to enjoying the wonderful food and city scene of the Big Apple, we had a blast during our time in NYC. And of course our favorite part of the trip was seeing the totally breathtaking collections from our favorite designers! We’ve made it back to Alabama excited, exhausted, but extremely giddy to share with you what we saw at Bridal Market!
We guessed that we would see lots of embellishment on the runway, and boy, were we right! Our designers paid special attention to every stitch on gowns covered in sparkle and shine. From full gowns to full bodices, beadwork and exquisite detailing took the stage and awed us all.
Whether the backs were low or covered in lace and detail, one thing is for sure, they stole the show! Walking down the aisle in these stunning gowns with dramatic backs will leave your guests speechless.
Designers weren’t just branching out with new designs, but also with unique fabrics. Carolina Herrera, the newest addition to The White Room’s designer family, showcased a gown made from jacquard degrade, an embossed fabric with floral print. We saw a French technique known as Ultrasound that uses a high-pitch sound to pierce the fabric and cut a design that is then appliqued onto a different fabric. Judd Waddell used a point d’esprit netting. Anna Maier (formerly Ulla-Maija) showed a gown made of wool crepe. Totally awesome. Totally gorgeous. Totally daring.
High necklines weren’t left for the Red Carpet and Fashion week only. Bridal designers carried over high necklines to this spring’s Bridal Week. Whether lace, illusion or boatneck, the ladies were more covered up this year, making for a sophisticated, timeless bride.
