New York Bridal Week took place at the beginning of last week. This semi-annual event showcases the world's most-celebrated bridal designers and their upcoming collections. I meant to write this post when the festivities ended last week, but I figured it is better late than never. There were so-many beautiful gowns to choose from that I decided to break down my favorites by trend. Here are my top picks from the Spring 2013 bridal week in New York.
The Peplum, reinvented
I love how Amsale is continuing to incorporate Peplum details on her beautiful gowns. These dresses show how she is softening this silhouette by creating a less-structured and more romantic peplum waist.
Lace is a often thought of as a traditional fabric used in wedding dress construction, however designers continue to find modern ways of incorporating this fabric into their designs. I love how both designers opted to contrast the sometimes stiff and structured look of lace, with softer, etherial chiffon.
A one-shoulder gown is a perfect choice for the bride that is looking for a more supportive neckline than that of the sexy, sweetheart shape. I love the silver and shimmery applique of the Marchesa dress on the left and the modern and structured feel of Caroline Herrera's dress on the right.
