This past April, thanks to our friends at Wedding Style Magazine, Golf had the fabulous opportunity to attend the New York City Bridal Fashion Week! He was able to witness the big reveal of the best 2016 collections from many of the top designers in the bridal fashion world! This season’s launch included the gowns of Oscar de la Renta, Ines Di Santo, Galia Lahav, Carolina Herrera, Vera Wang and many more. Each gave us so many gorgeous looks at this years show, and we’d like to share with you some of our favorite designs of the day!
Ines Di Santo is not only a close friend, but also one of our favorite designers! This year she really brought her talent to the runway with her spring/summer 2016 collection. The spring inspired gowns in this show were filled with intricate details, soft colors, lots of lace and just the right amount of sparkle! Every gown had its own unique touches making each individually special, such as the use of exquisite beading or lacing. To accompany their spring theme, each model and dress is paired with a stunning butterfly headpiece. In my opinion this really was the finishing touch to tie in the whole collection! Below are photos captured by Getty Images, courtesy of Wedding Style Magazine, showcasing just a few of our favorites from the collection!
Who doesn’t love a good ruffle? This stunning gown really brings forward a more modern feel to it. I love that the dress isn’t the classic white either!
This short and fun gown is the perfect mixture of ruffle and lace. I love that there are so many parts to the dress with different tiers. With the pearl strung sleeves, its the perfect dress for a fun loving bride! Perfect to show off some fabulous shoes!
This is a stunning example of the intricate lace designs seen in this season’s collection! Such a gorgeous use of lace in the bust and it looks great with the pearl sleeves! Overall gorgeous gown!
This gown was one of our absolute favorites of this years fashion week! Between the gorgeous fit, low back and the intricate beading on the neck and back of this gown, it was by far the most unique dress in the collection!
Another favorite of the evening was the runway work from the one and only Galia Lahav. She stole the show with her “Les Reves Bohemiens” collection at the New York Bridal Market. Her gowns gave the perfect combination of whimsical and sexy! Her designs showcase illusion necklines, lace and tulle. The choice of hair and make-up for the models was a true fit for the theme of the collection and looked flawless on the runway! The floral headpiece was a nice touch for the “bohemiens!”
This blush colored gown is perfect for the non-traditional bride! Not only does it go against the typical white or ivory color, it also gives us the “short” dress feel while still being a full length gown! I love the detailing in the beading and the way in which the tulle is added to the bottom! We definitely get that sexy element we were looking for with that low back!
What I love most about this gown is that the lace pattern is so different than what we usually see when dealing with lace and by adding it in the skirt gives us a little peak of the leg! The plunging neckline is gorgeous with all of the designs. Even though its low, it’s the perfect level of revealing to give the bride that little extra something special on her wedding day!
Nothing says couture better than this gown with its illusion neckline, long sleeves and lace embellishments! Everything about this dress screams high fashion and I love everything about it! My favorite part is probably the lace design right under the neck!
This gown is perfect for the bride who want to “show a little leg” without showing everything! I love that the fabric on this skirt is more on the sheer side because it really does bring that sexy element to the table! The sleeves are the perfect addition to make this gown a little more conservative – but not too much! Excellent work on this collection!
That’s the end of our little sneak peak into the designs of this years Bridal Fashion Week! To see more of the exquisite collections from these and other designers, take a look at
