Move over stereotypes and the run-of-the-mill bridal wears, the 2016 New York Bridal Fashion Week has time-traveled into the future to empower the brides-to-be with the latest trends and runway know-how.
Boho Bride From Coachella
Can it get any easier? Laces, feathers, fringes and free spirit borrowed right from the windy California dessert will ensure the bride sings to the tunes of Coachella on her W-day. Taking a cue from all the celebrities visiting the music festival, the Coachella bride can be a refreshing breather amid the up-tight celebrations. This one from Galia Lahav had us begging for a festival wedding.
Breaking the Floral Stigma
Alfred Angelo showcased a strong silhouette breaking stereotypes with their added colors. Among all the designs, the intricate pink-rose embellished gown with a flattering halter top, shined the brightest.
Bride in Sheer
The sheer fabric, better known as the naked dress, featured in several designers’ collections during the fashion week. Taking a page from the likes of Kim Kardashian and Beyonce’s look-book, Israeli designer Berta presented the naked bridal look on the runway. Deep necklines and see-through panels of the gowns gave the illusion of “sexy” while being practically covered.
Veils or Capes
Another traditional staple, the Twigs & Honey veil was elegantly paired with this gorgeous headpiece. When used with the gown, the embellished veils rendered a dramatic grandeur with their length and flow. Veil Trend’s new silk tulle Tel Aviv cape was also showcased and was giving some serious super-bride vibes.
