As an integral part of our twice-annual trip to New York City for Couture Bridal Market we are always on the lookout for a collection that catches our eye. The collection that stops us in our tracks to say “W H A A T”! As curators of trends, and helping to endorse what “Can Be” in bridal fashions, we understand that sometime we need to encourage brides to think outside of the box. Designers too often walk a fine line from what sells, and what is truly innovative design. Here is our pick for Emerging Designer at New York Couture Bridal Fashion Week – Spring 2016.
THE HOUSE OF ATAKER
The House of John Paul Ataker is rooted in more than three decades of fashion, and two decades of creating some of the most decadent textiles in the world. Founded as a custom tailor shop in Istanbul, in 1977, the Ataker legacy is based on luxury craftsmanship, sumptuous fabrications and couture influence. Their signature look comes from the fact that they actually make all their own fabrics, with gowns designed in America and made in Europe.
This year they have launched their first bridal collection with a hint of their design esthetic of the most glamorous, and show stopping evening wear. Ataker’s timeless forwardness and attention to detail has rooted the label as a go to for all things couture, with an impeccable high-style and intrinsic design. The showstopper for us is the fact that all their gowns come in a multitude of colors as well as white and ivory. Although we see the price point for many designer’s collections and never share the information, we can honestly say the philosophy is affordable couture and it will truly give brides a truly unique one of a kind silhouette. Enjoy!
