What We Saw at New York Bridal Fashion Week
A peek at the fall and winter 2020 bridal collections.
New York Bridal Fashion Week, which was Oct. 3-8, showcased a stunning array of wedding day looks for 2020 brides, with a focus on diversity, inclusivity and individuality. From Vera Wang’s “cool girl” looks, to Ines Di Santo’s glamorous couture gowns, Marchesa’s dreamy lace confections, and Monique Lhuillier’s romantic classics, there was something for everyone.
The fall and winter 2020 collections emphasized customization and figure-flattering looks for all body types and personal styles. “What a perfect time for a bride to express who she is and what she chooses to wear,” said Ines Di Santo, the designer. “I love that today’s bride is able to transcend trend, the norm, and expectation.”
Here are a few of the new looks.
Big bows are back. Designers used this ordinarily sweet detail to make a sophisticated statement. The oversize embellishment added a pop to clean-silhouetted gowns, as shown in Carolina Herrera’s collection with a stylized bow on a ball gown with pockets. Ines Di Santo added a structured half-bow that led into a train at the back of a column dress, and Anne Barge featured an embroidered ball gown with a draped bow that seamlessly blended into the folds of the skirt.
