And to round out the blog posts about the New York Bridal Show, here is part 2 of the Kleinfeld Bridal Fashion Show!
Yet another Pnina Tornai creation that doesn’t disappoint! This beautiful Chantilly lace gown features Pnina’s signature illusion bodice and a tiered skirt. Price: $11,500
Another trend for 2012 is feathers. This Sophia Moncelli for Kleinfeld gown features ostrich feathers on a trumpeted skirt. Price: $5,300
Here’s another vintage bridal gown with a Valentino-like feel. This silk charmeuse tank dress with a low back is by Pnina Tornai and features rhinestone accents on the waist. Price: $10,000
This champagne colored Judd Waddell gown features a trumpet skirt with a beautiful lace bodice and rhinestone belt. Price: $3,300
A great way to incorporate your wedding colors into your attire is to add a colorful sash. This Edgaro Bonilla wedding dress features a crumb-catcher bodice and is accented with a dark teal ribbon. (I especially love the shape of this dress without the ribbon!) Price: $4,200
In 2012, look for volumized and structured skirts, like this Rivini dress’ raw edge skirt detail dress.
I absolutely love this wedding dress by Dennis Basso, featuring hand-embroidered rosettes. Price: $4,800
This modern strapless sheath dress by Carol Hannah features raw edge seams. Price: $2,800
When people think “wedding dress”, they typically envision a white ballgown. This fun, flirty organza ballgown by Alita Graham is the quintessential wedding dress. Price: $2,500
I must say that I was so happy to see this come down the runway! This beautiful women’s tuxedo by Douglas Hannant features a plunging neckline and is fabulous for more mature brides, Lesbian brides, or brides who just aren’t fond of dresses!
If you’re a girl who loves her bling, then you’ll love this dress! This Kleinfeld mermaid-style gown features an embroidered dropped waist and a starburst rhinestone pattern. Price: $4,200
It’s a little hard to tell from the photo, but this gorgeous Dennis Basso mermaid gown is a blush pink color, which is a lovely alternative to white or ivory and still keeps that romantic feel. Price: $2,800
This gown is certainly for the more daring bride and probably wouldn’t be church-approved. This Pnina Tornai gown features an ivory beaded illusion bodice. Price: $11,500
Yet another Pnina Tornai gown. This was the show-stopper! The dress is called “Mother of Perla” and is a lace ballgown with a tiered skirt. Price: $32,500
So, let’s recap the dress trends for 2012:
- Lace is making a HUGE comeback (thanks to Kate Middleton, I’m sure!)
- Bling is here to stay!
- Skirts with volume, texture and structure rule the runway.
- Blush Pink is the new white.
- Stapless has some stiff competition – look for more dresses with straps and sleeves.
