Best of Bridal Market: Wedding Dress Fashions for Fall 2014
Another Bridal Market has come and gone and we were lucky enough to get up close and personal with some of our favorite bridal gown designers’ collections for the Fall 2014 season. We saw, we swooned and now we’re sharing with you some of our favorite picks.
Carolina Herrera: Short and oh-so-sweet, this beauty stood out from the rest of Herrera’s short hemlines (which her entire collection consisted of!) thanks to the Something Blue moonstones and charming bows.
Theia ‘Celeste’: Don O’Neill’s theme this season was “The Midas Touch,” and gold was seen throughout the collection in both large and small doses, including this beauty on which gold filigree lace gives the classic silhouette a subtle shimmer.
Rivini ‘Manuela’: Rita Vinieris made a statement for marriage equality with her opening look, sending two brides hand-in-hand down the aisle. But beyond the awesome statement, the looks were equally impressive. I was particularly fond of the wide leg jumpsuit, paired with an embroidered tunic overlay. Designers released more suit and pants options this season than any others past, and we’re happy to see this “trend” become a norm.
Vera Wang Look 12: Before you state the obvious, Vera’s hot-hued collection will also be available in white and ivory. Now let’s look at the details: that pleating! that rosette! that draping!
Monique Lhuillier Look 12: Flowy and romantic, the layers of tulle are soft and feminine and the beaded embroidery on the bodice adds a touch of glam.
Jenny Packham: I was wooed by everything that was sent down the twinkling, tree-lined runway at Jenny Packham’s show. Sticking to her signature style, each piece was intricately beaded to create a luxe boho look.
