Get. Excited. I just got back from Bridal Market in NYC, and boy did I find some goodies for our brides. Our designers took a few risks, but overall, the weekend was about timeless silhouettes and romantic, luxurious fabrics.
I was pretty much blown away by Jenny Packham, as usual. No surprise there. I can’t even.
Claire Pettibone, a Closet fave, was amazing as always. Check out her “Alchemy” trumpet adorned in gold metallic lace. The back had me speechless. SPEECHLESS. And trust me, that’s rare.
A big theme with lots of designers this season is a lace sleeve. I’m talking uber delicate here. Think Duchess Kate, but a little more fashion-forward (no offense, Your Highness). Temperley did it Flaw. Less. Ly.
After seeing one bazillion gowns, two words stuck out in my head after my whirlwind weekend: REEM ACRA. I walked into the showroom and it was like someone hit me in the face with awesomeness. I was as giddy and wide-eyed as a kid in a Toys R Us. Unreal.
(and yes, the boobies will be hidden with lining)
All in all, it was a fantabulous Bridal Market! SO fantabulous, in fact, that we decided to start our sample sale a month early to make room for all the new pretties coming in 2014. Come see us soon!!
