Lace, tulle and delicate details were the highlighted features of New York’s Bridal Fashion Week F/W ’16. Jess Levin, the Founder and CEO of Carats & Cake shared with WhoWhatWear, some of her favourite dresses on the runway. From Caroline Herrera, Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier and others, these gowns are drop dead gorgeous and worth every penny they call.
P.S: I added some of my own favourites at the end.
“Carolina Herrera always evokes this effortless feel. Her attention to detail and the way she uses lace is simultaneously timeless and innovative. While it was hard to pick a single stand out this season, I loved the hint of lilac in this dress paired with its beaded bodice.”
“Marchesa always brings the drama and the glamour. All the details in this body skimming dress from its plunging neckline to its illusion lace cut outs and its simple train, come together to create a show stopping number.”
“Inbal Dror is known for her dresses that walk a fine line between sexy and well, too sexy. This season she continued to push boundaries, however I thought this gown did sweet and sexy at once. It still has her signature see-through elements and immaculate details, but the shape and pockets adds a subtle softness.”
“A play on the alwaysiconic white tuxedo, Angel Sanchez’s textured bodice upgrades the simple white one piece. This look was certainly a personal favorite although I can see more brides opting for it for a rehearsal dinner or a Friday night welcome party.”
“Monique Lhuillier consistently wows. Her runway was full of her signature corseted strapless gowns alongside long-sleeve lace confections reminiscent of Kate Middleton. You can’t go wrong with Monique, but this gown stood out to me, both with it’s interesting neckline and the feather overlay. It earns points for its statement power and versatile two looks in one.”
“Peter Copping’s second bridal collection for Oscar de la Renta was full of new interpretations on their signature designs. I particularly loved this take on an iconic strapless gown with the lace halter neck to add elements of tradition while still showing a sultry shoulder.”
