Bridal Market October 2012

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


Bridal market hit the runways in New York last month and, as I have twice a year, every year for some time, I avidly watched the runways for the deliciously gorgeous gowns!

This market saw a lot of sleeves – sheer and chic, lace and even beautiful draped sleeves. Illusion necklines – raised up high and plenty of lace was also a dominant feature of the designer collections. I love seeing that more designers are paying attention to the back of the gown too, there are some incredible back designs which are works of art in themselves.

For my roundup of the beautiful bridal market creations,  I decided to do something a little different and only include designers available in Australia. These gowns won’t be available until next year, but it’s nice to be inspired and see what is on the horizon!
