10 Bridal Looks from NYFW
Day one of New York Fashion Week is already a thing of the past, and with it came several color, shoe, and accessory trends from over 14 designers. One unexpected outcome of today’s collections were ten looks that would be absolutely perfect for every type of bride, whether it be for the ceremony or the reception.
The Romantic Bride: BCBG Max Azria
BCBG Max Azria’s collection was a showcase of lacy gowns with watercolor-esque floral patterns, and pastel and white shades. Among these white gowns were two made of light, airy fabrics that looked absolutely ethereal as they came down the runway. The sashes (a common trend thus far in NYFW) added an unexpected but functional element to the gowns.
The Whimsical Bride: Honor
This coming Spring and Summer will see an Honor collection full of whimsey and playfulness. The collection was primarily white with subtle design details that looked like Necco Candy Buttons sprinkled throughout. The three potential bridal dresses didn’t include these tasty treat look-alikes, but they did have a charming combination of scalloped patterns and slightly transparent fabrics.
The “Old Soul” Bride: Tadashi Shoji
If there’s one thing Shoji is known for, it’s his breathtaking gowns. Naturally, his most recent collection is no exception. Gowns in every shade came down the runway, ranging from dusty pinks to black to pastels. Despite the fairly common spring color trend, Shoji’s collection had an air of old Renaissance magic to it. The fabrics looked to be more weighty than what we saw elsewhere on day one, but they still moved beautifully.
The Unconventional Bride: Honor & Marissa Webb
Unconventional wedding themes and attire have been on the rise for a few years now. Honor does our hippie brides a huge favor by creating dramatic bell-bottoms in a gorgeous, crisp white. Marissa Webb takes us in a direction that may appeal to the tomboy or preppy brides with a menswear inspired ensemble. Webb’s entire collection had a cool easiness about it with deconstructed trench coats and tons of t-shirt dresses.
