New York in the Spring is always a beautiful sight to see! It's amagical time of year when, after a harsh winter, the entire city isabloom with flowers and delicate pink and white blossoms everywhere.
This Spring's New York Bridal Market was the same. The looks werepurely delicate with feminine details that resulted in the mostromantic designs. Lace will never be out of style, and this market wesaw some of the most incredible laces! Laser cut lace added a moderntwist to traditional silhouettes, while classics such as Chantilly andAllencon were updated with the faintest hint of color or iridescence.Many designers were showing a heavier embroidered lace that continuesto appeal to a Bohemian style bride, as well as to the bride who ishaving an outdoor or farm wedding.
One common theme with all the designers we spoke with is that they areeach doing "sexy" in their own unique ways. From subtle to extreme,we saw it all! This is a direct influence from the newly successfulIsraeli designers, who have made sexy the new rage in bridal.Necklines are deeper, backs are lower, and many designers featuredgowns with sheer cut outs on the side.
Our favorite way to incorporate this trend into our repertoire is bychoosing classic silhouettes that have beautiful sheer illusionnecklines and backs that are either embellished with delicate, subtlebeading, or lace appliqués. Another trend that we love is the romantic addition of sleeves! Fromsheer illusion, gently falling caps, and lovely lace three quarter,the look is femininity at its finest!
In keeping with Spring, we did see some luscious hints of color. Every designer showed soft, flowing gowns in the faintest hues ofcaramel, honey, rose gold, champagne, blush and fawn.Mostly used underthe sheerest tulle, the colors added richness and dimension to eachdesign.
Soon Maddison Row will also be abloom with some amazing newdresses for our future brides. We can hardly wait to see the responseto our newest collection of beautiful gowns.
