Eva Longoria wows in this stunning, form-fitting gown from Marchesa. The soft tulle sleeves cascade like a cape – draping down the back. The heavy, hand embellishment that adorns the gown paired with the plunging V-neck is reminiscent of Marchesa’s bridal collection.
Delicate and romantic with those little flecks of fuchsia, we approve of this perfect spring time look!

Marchesa slay the red carpet again with this gorgeous purple number worn by Deepika Padukone. The one shoulder, silk tulle gown is complete with a thin velvet ribbon which ties around the waist. These delicate details are true to Marchesa’s signature style, hand embellishment and clever draping combine together to create this sensational red carpet look.

Yang Zishan rocks this beautiful embroidered skater dress from Tony Ward. The embroidery is a combination of light and dark blue crystals, hand stitched onto the rich ivory base of the dress. The embellished cap sleeves balance the box pleats in the skirt and we are loving this sweet, feminine look with a hint of drama.

And who couldn’t love this show stopper of a ball gown designed by Michael Cinco worn by Aishwarya Rai?! Although we don’t stock Michael Cinco here at Browns Bride, we can certainly appreciate this gown that is fit for a princess. One reason we love it so much is because of how much it reminds us of our Romona Keveza ball gown (featured below). It features the same off-the-shoulder neckline and a beautiful billowing skirt.

New York Bridal Fashion Week –

April 17

Last month our buying team jetted off to New York, to start the purchasing of our Spring Summer 2018 collections. A weekend that is as glamorous as it is hectic; rushing from one side of Manhattan to the other to watch catwalk shows from each of our designers that we carry in store. The buying weekend involved a lot of preparation, and before you know it its over in a flash. A blur of bridal gowns and buying appointments; New York Bridal Fashion Week is the biannual fashion event we always look forward to.

The bridal industry continues to boom and the competition amongst the best in the business accelerates. With this in mind, New York Bridal Fashion Week is the best place to be in order to find out what we can expect to see from our designers, and to see how their collections evolve. Our designers are at the forefront of couture fashion, with many designing both ready-to-wear and bridal collections. Next Spring we can expect to see an array of upcoming trends in bridal; from jumpsuits to halternecks.

Below we have featured our favorite dresses which we purchased from each designer. Brides getting married next year – its time to start getting excited about the dress!
