Bridal Fashion Week kicked off in New York at the weekend, with catwalks, showcases, and private viewings of some of the most exciting bridal collections on the planet.
While we couldn’t be in NYC in person this time (sobs into my very English cup of tea), we’ve still got the inside scoop on all the big trends, beautiful dresses and fabulous accessories, and every day this week, we’ll be treating you guys to one of our favourite collections.
So, we’re kicking things off with one of the most glorious bridal collections, one that thrills us every season with its luxe textures, divine jewellery, and dramatic designs.
And for Spring/Summer 2017, Marchesa certainly didn’t disappoint.
Sticking to the sun-drenched venue of Canoe Studios on the Hudson, where we saw their last collection in October, Marchesa designers, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, upped the ante with their latest showcase, with romantic florals, the softest tulles, and most glorious necklines.
My favourite thing about this collection though has to be all that decadent jewellery. Pearls, crystals, and tassels? I’m in love!
Scroll down to get a behind the scenes look of this incredible collection, but first up, read a bit more about the inspiration behind it…
About the Collection
Marchesa SS17 Bridal Collection is a journey through a regal, enchanted garden with flourishing rosebuds and blossoming florals emerging just as the morning sun rises.
Glistening crystals and pearls against sleek bodices and ethereal gowns are reminiscent of morning mist atop of petals in a wildflower meadow.
Springtime buds in rosy ombres and dip-dyed blushes are blooming in layered tiers and ruffles over silk organza. Lightweight tulles in sheer blush and nude tones are subtly placed beneath ball gowns.
Silk satin ribbons add a majestic touch to seductively cinched waists and revealing peek-a-boo cut-outs.
Ornate embroideries of 3D organza roses and hand-cut petals flourish over detachable skirts and peplums as French Chantilly and corded lace are gracefully set against plunging necklines.
So stunning! Just imagine wearing a gown like that for your big day. That jewellery is fabulous, and I love the soft, feminine touches across the collection, so beautiful.
Marchesa wedding dresses are priced from $10,600 (£7000), and available from stockists worldwide.
And that’s only the start of it, we’ll be sharing more collections throughout the week, so keep your eyes peeled for more breathtaking gowns from Bridal Fashion Week.
