Editors’ Picks from New York Fashion Week

It is our pleasure to have the opportunity to highlight two amazing editors favorite dresses from New York Fashion Week.

After Party Dress: Carrie Goldberg, Assistant Fashion Editor, Martha Stewart Weddings

I swooned when this piece walked the runway at Jason Wu’s show last week. Its everything I look for in a party dress – flirty, fresh and sexy in an unexpected way. I love the texture the feathers give this look – its feminine, elegant, perfect for dancing and the silhouette cinches your smallest part to flatter without being body conscious. My favorite silhouettes typically sport a high neckline with a short skirt, to show off slim stems and draw attention up to your face.

Rehearsal Dinner Dress: Rachel Leonard,  Fashion Director, Brides Magazine

I love this dress from Lela Rose for a rehearsal dinner look. It is so special, romantic and feminine. Looking at it in person, it just floated down the runway. I think a bride would feel so beautiful in this.

Thanks Carrie and Rachel! It’s an honor to have you contribute to the blog! Brides, we would love to know what you think!

Fashion Week After Party Dress

Most of our clients like to change into a short, fun dress to dance in for their After Party.  These dresses are our top pics from fashion week, and in our opinion AMAZING!!!

1. This Monique Lhuillier bone colored floral embroidered cocktail dress with a high low hem and long sleeves would be a great choice for a winter wedding after party dress.  We can envision perfectly it in a low lit, lounge-style environment with the silk white fox shawl as the icing on the cake.

2. Naeem Kahn This short beaded number would be a blast to change into! Your legs are free for dancing, and it’s so sparkly that it is special enough for a black-tie occasion.

3. Naeem Khan his beaded spaghetti strap dress is just unbelievable. If your wedding dress is full and a bit tough to get around in, but you still want a long gown, this is a perfect choice.

4. This draped strapless Marchesa dress is fantastic for a bride that wants to be a bit more edgy for her second dress. The beading and color keep traditional accents alive, but the construction makes is cool and modern.
