Monique Lhuillier SS2012

This was my first time at Monique‘s show, and it was everything I knew it would be.  She’s an absolute wizard when it comes to corsetry and detailing.  The dress below was covered in knots, which I thought was a unique take on the ruffle.     My favorite though was one you’d never guess, a pink ruffled dress (seen above, bottom right)  .  I know what you’re saying…”a pink AND pouffy dress?  That goes against everything you believe in!”  But I’m telling you, it was a stunner!  More pics on Facebook

Check out the tiny photographers catching the last shot…they were so professional!

Bridal Market: Amsale

I always find the Amsale line the most modern out of the 3, and this year was no exception.  My favorite was a dress you’ll find below, layers of tulle with a slight grid pattern over the skirt…so fashion forward and architectural!

You can see these and many more of the pictures from Bridal Market over on our Facebook page.

Bridal Market: Kenneth Pool

I think the Kenneth Pool line tends to go more towards the classic bride, but everyone can find something to love in this collection.  These were some of my favs…

Reem Acra

Reem Acra won my award for best in show!  I’ve always loved her dresses, and this collection was no exception.  Her details were total perfection with creative rouching, architectural ruffles and flowers, and lingerie inspired corsets.

The dress above (bottom left and right) had to be my absolute favorite…those pleats were perfectly modern.

The top dress (above left and right) has handmade ruffles, making it so no dress of this design is the same…fabulous right?

Bridal market

I spent the weekend gallivanting around town for bridal market with some lovely ladies and wanted to show you some of my best of’s from the collections I saw…I’ll save my favorite for later today!

Amsale showed some great new stuff, and I was especially liking her dresses using this embossed looking jacquard fabric (bottom left).  Very different and very fresh!

Kenneth Pool surprised me because I’m not usually a poofy dress kinda gal, but these were definitely done in a way I could totally support!  Elegant and modern all at once.

Rivini was a new one for me this year, but I was more than happy for the introduction.  Their ruffles were constrained in the most interesting way making the dress details incredibly 3D and textural, and their layers of fabrics with raw edges were some of my favs.

Romona Keveza is the queen when it comes to elegant draping and making a bride look her sexiest. Her final dress (bottom right corner) was filled with cascading petals, it was pretty amazing!
