Beautiful fairy tale-like sumptuous wedding gowns designed by some of the biggest names in bridal fashion sashayed delicately down the ramp at the just concluded New York International Bridal Week.
Los Angeles-based couturier Diane Monique Lhuillier focused on creating ready-to-wear wedding outfits for the modern contemporary women who prefer simpler designs over the traditional ones. Based on chic silhouettes and sleek lines, the blush and cream toned dainty pieces were made of luxe silk, crepe and lace.
High-end womenswear label Marchesa featured its latest heavy on delicate lace 2013/2014 collection at the event. Infused with classy sweetheart necklines and asymmetrical cuts, the range featured stunning floor-length wedding dresses, detachable voluminous skirts, silver thread embroidered corsets and flowing trains.
Internationally renowned bridal wear queen Vera Wang featured an edgy collection in contrasting shades of black and white. Accentuated with different textures and draping, the line was spiced up with geometric shapes, sheer panels, clean cut lines and peplum silhouettes. The range included princess-cut wedding gowns, black leather gloves and architectural dresses with interesting necklines.
Veteran fashion designer Oscar De La Renta once again wove magic with his Chantilly lace made designs. Decorated with silk organza floral appliqués and silver as well as sequin embroidery, the collection showcased white tulle strapless dresses, cap-sleeve gowns with ruffled layers and lush pink ball gowns.
