Have you missed us?
A little over a week ago the Van Cleve Bridal team headed up to New York City for one of the biggest weeks of the year in the wedding industry, New York Bridal Fashion Week.
This is an amazing opportunity for anyone in the wedding industry and we are actually very fortunate to be close enough to drive. We spent a portion of the week seeing runway shows from incredible gowns, veil and accessory designers.
We were also able to spend a lot of time in private appointments with designers. Not only is this the prefect opportunity to see new designs up close but we get to talk about trends in the industry and ultimately place orders for some beautiful gowns for our salon.
This year’s trends continue to have a big emphasis on clean lines and gorgeous fabrics. Structured fabrics like Mikado and satin, with much less tulle this season. You will also be seeing some prints and jacquards. If there are embellishments on the gowns, you will be seeing unique lace patterns, and embroidery. Bows are big this season, big bows are especially big! We were excited to see that scoop necklines, as well as necklines that are going straight across, are becoming very popular. You will continue to see a lot of Boho, detachable skirts, and capes trending as well. It will come as no surprise that there were quite a few takes on Megan Markle’s, The Duchess of Sussex, gown.
Here are a few sneak peeks at designs from some of our favorite designers.
We are excited to bring you more beautiful gowns by Suzanne Neville.
Sareh Nouri gowns were the talk of the town!
How beautiful, fun and unique are these gowns by Stephen Yearick and Ysa Makino?
