Bridal Market 2011

It was a fun weekend and week in New York as I, once again, accompanied fashion beaut Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the shore and her incredible team to October market! We had a smashing time and got to catch up with our industry friends and make new ones along the way. Here are some highlights from our weekend, including our favorite gowns (some soon to be available at TWD), moments, and images from the Martha Stewart Weddings party and The Knot Gala!

My weekend started off at the Amsale runway show, where she showed gowns from her newest collection. The runway show was a modern take on the classics (even down to the music!). Her maids walked down the runway first in all Jersey fabric in clean silhouettes, some with one shoulder. Her bridal collection had a lot of tulle skirts with with satin bodices. You can see all the dresses that walked down the runway here.

We visited one of my favorite new lines, Ivy & Aster, known for their sweet and feminine style. They also make the cutest bridesmaids dresses that you’d be destined to wear again and again! You can see their full Fall 2012 line here.

It’s totally true: we do heart Euro designer David Fielden— and what a pleasure it was to meet him and have him show us his 2012 Fall collection! His avant-garde style and bold use of textures, fabrics and cuts makes his line completely unique. One of our favorite looks was a backless white jumpsuit dress alternative– so 70’s and truly for the bride who wants something amazing and different! You can see some of his 2012 line here and his Milan runway show below… I STRONGLY encourage you to watch the whole thing. The finale is worth the wait!

More to come… xoxo
