It’s that time of year again! Another wonderful bridal fashion week just wrapped, which means we get to revel in the latest wedding dress trends to emerge from the runways. And from a vibrant Spanish-inspired aesthetic to more romantic 3D floral appliqués and fully sheer silhouettes, this seasons wasn’t short of interesting new designs for brides-to-be to covet. Yet again, layers played an important role in the most recent bridal presentations. Whether it was frilly capelets on a Spanish-inspired number at Oscar de la Renta or an asymmetrical tiered skirt at Monique Lhuillier, creating dimension, volume, and optical illusions with dress shapes was key to the Fall 2016 designs. Another majorly important feature was texture. 3D florals popped up on the runways yet again, taking a more ethereal turn with delicate organza appliqués (some even dotted with crystals and beads!) blooming onto gowns at Naeem Khan and Reem Acra.
Marchesa gave their signature embroidered and beaded wedding gowns a sliver of sexiness this season. There were more curve-skimming silhouettes, including backless corsets that dipped down into the waist and décolletage that dove under the breastbone. Still, the traditional and more pared-back bride was not forgotten: A strapless standout had a train blooming from a lather of feathered tulle into floral appliqués that delicately blossomed up toward the bust.
Inbal Dror brings glamour and decadence to each piece. The soft palette of ivory, vanilla, champagne, and charcoal blush hues serves as a canvas for exquisite detailing. This season, Inbal incorporated the finest European fabrications, from layers of silk tulle and delicate matte sequins to unexpected cutouts.
