With New York Bridal Fashion Week at a close for another year, there’s a whole myriad of new collections to explore and lust after. From lacy peplum skirts, to frothy sleeves and hints of embellishments, many of last years hottest trends have been carried forward for another season. Instead of sharing each individual collection I’ve decided to give you a glimpse of five of my favourite creations. Which one do you love best?
If you’re a regular reader of Style Serendipity, it will come as no surprise that I was won over by Claire Pettibone’s latest collection. With her signature exquisite details which included silk charmeuse, ribbons, beading and vintage lace, this peplum gown is the epitome of pretty. The show stopping embellishment at the back is the perfect way to wow the crowd while you are exchanging your vows! See more of the collection here.
The words Marchesa and glamour more often than not go hand and hand together, and while I was a bit disappointed with certain aspects of the Spring 2014 collection, this short delicate lace gown certainly won me over. With it’s one shoulder silhouette and elegant lace it would be the perfect choice of a sophisticated yet pretty city wedding. Check out the rest of the collection here.
Oh Jenny Packham, you never fail to make my heart beat that little bit quicker! While I could have picked any number of stunning gowns from this years collection, this cascading dress with sequin details is the perfect balance between sparkle and elegance. You’ll definitely want to see more here!
A slightly more traditional choice but none less elegant is this strapless lace gown from Oscar de la Renta. I had a brief love affair with an Oscar de la Renta gown while shopping for my own wedding dress in Chicago, I could never have afforded it but I still have a soft spot for the designer since that afternoon! The organza lace embroidery brings a contemporary edge to an otherwise classic gown and I love how the drop veil completes the entire look. Check out more loveliness here!
Last but not least, I can never resist a bit of classic english chic with just the right hint of fashion from Temperley London. Again I fell in love with more than one dress is this collection but the simplicity of the gown above with the softness of the neckline and sleeves was a favourite. You can see the full collection in all is glory here! Enjoy!
