Every bride has her own style and vision for her wedding day look and saying “Yes To The Dress,” is the end result. Today, there are more looks to select from as designers push the boundaries and bring innovation to the bridal runway. At this year’s Bridal Fashion Week in New York City, a spin on contemporary tradition was more than evident. The top trends are full of retro-revisited inspiration and the fabric of choice, without a question is lace. We are seeing very little satin and some daring designers using moiré.
As pop culture is evolving out of the retro ’80s, bridal fashion is evolving as well into eclectic decades of design. The Fall-Winter 2019 collections at Bridal Fashion Week continue to embody many elements from past brides such as Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn creating a resurgence of classic silhouettes. The one big factor this year is without a doubt is the Meghan Markel effect. Classic gowns with sleeves and romantic necklines to embellished cathedral veils and trains; the Duchess of Sussex effect has made a big impact on the bridal fashion world.
