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!
