Bridal Fashion Week April 2018

Bridal Fashion Week just wrapped up in New York City earlier this week where the Spring 2019 designer collections were unveiled. Beth Chapman, stylist , author, and owner of The White Dress by the Shore has shared some of her favorite trends to grace the runway this season!

“A bride’s wedding gown should not only be a reflection her wedding aesthetic, but it should reflect her personal style and who she is.  With the current trends in bridal, there TRULY is a gown for every bride. The silhouettes, fabrications and necklines shown during Spring 2019 New York Bridal Fashion Week were diverse” — Beth Chapman

Sheer Cover-Ups

Many designers showed coverage options on their runways.  This spanned from sheer capes, to capelets and boleros.  They were represented on both classic silhouettes as well as more avant garde options, like jumpsuits and shorts!

Clean and Classic

Many designers showed completely clean wedding gowns last season.  The difference this season was that many of them had sleeves. My favorite was the long sleeved version. To me, this is the perfect gown for a classic Fall or Winter wedding!

Textural Laces 

The other extreme shown on the runway was gowns with unique, textural laces.

Colorful Embroidery 

This daring new trend emerged this season.  Several designers took the embroidery trend one step further by introducing staturated color in ethnic inspired floral patterns.

Satin is a traditional fabric that we have not seen in some time.  Being that matte crepes have been popular for several seasons, designers are swinging the pendulum and bringing back the sheen with luxurious satin fabrics.

V-necks continue to be the hot neckline of the season.  This neckline was represented in various depths from demure to plunging.
