New York Bridal Fashion Week just wrapped up their runways, markets and showings and team One Fine Day were front and centre of the action in the Big Apple. This means that we can bring you all the insights from the shows so you can be clued into the trends we’re sure to see walking down the aisle in 2020.
One trend we couldn’t turn without seeing at NYBFW was statement sleeves. We’re talking sheer tulle, gathered cuffs, off-the-shoulder dropped arms and all-over embellishment. Some stellar standouts on the sleeve front included beauties from Alena Leena, Beccar and Sebastian Luke.
Why have one layer when you can have eight? We spotted a lot of vintage-inspired gowns with eons of lace tumbling down, as well as a handful of tiered dresses designed with a modern, fashion-forward bride in mind. Our top picks go to Katherine Tash and her ‘BLUE’ gown (inspired by Alice in Wonderland), Katya Katya and their Little House on the Prairie tea-dipped, ribbon-clad gown, Daarlarna and Alena Leena.
Skirts have been swapped out in favour for pants at this year’s New York Bridal Fashion Week. Still maintaining bridal elegance and supreme femininity, designers have been producing epic pants to pair with heavily embellished crops and capes. Our favourites amongst the trousers include wide-legged beauties from Sant Elia, bell-bottomed cropped pants from Prea James and an epic pearl-embellished pair of short shorts from Varca Bridal.
Subbing out traditional veils for conveniently-attached-to-your-dress cape veils seemed to be a major theme at NYBFW. Whether they were tied to a delicate strap or incorporated to an extended train, they add a regal element to any bridal look. Some standout looks to us included Elizabeth Dye’s ruffled cropped veil back, Anna Campbell’s regal embellished Eden gown and Divine Atelier’s delicate caped Samira design.
