New York Bridal Fashion Week designers, including ApparelMagic clients, showed that wedding gowns don’t have to be simple white strapless dresses anymore. In fact, sometimes they don’t have to be white, or even dresses.
Sachin & Babi tried out a range of silhouette options, from classic ballgowns to a white silk track jacket with flared pants. The real excitement, however, was a sequined T-shirt thrown over a simple tulle skirt. Unpretentious and nowhere near fussy, it is the perfect combination for the modern bride.
The eveningwear extraordinaires at Badgley Mischka know how to do a mermaid dress like no one else. They played with this shape in nearly every permutation, ranging from bias-cut shifts from the golden age of Hollywood to versions with long lace trains dripping with embroidery.
Naeem Khan, undoubtably a maximalist at heart, isn’t afraid of anything. With a luxurious variety of silhouettes on display, any bride who finds traditions stuffy can find a beaded jumpsuit, a marabou feather hem, or gowns in blush and pale pink that will suit her fancy.
