New York Bridal Fashion Week 2011

 

Bridal Fashion Week is one of my favorite times all year!  In case you are not familiar with just what bridal fashion week is, here is a brief overview...all of the most fabulous wedding industry professionals gather in New York at the same time!  For example, we spotted the amazing wedding planner, Colin Cowie, and the stars of "Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta" at the same appointments we were attending!  This is the opportunity for designers to show their new collections for the upcoming year and talk to the stores that sell their lines and answer questions about what they foresee as the top sellers. 

We then get to come home with gorgeous photos to show our brides and bridesmaids!  Even though we have the photos, the actual dresses will not be in stores until January/February or later, depending on designer. 

In meeting with all of the Twirl Lexington designers, here are just a few trends we saw for 2012... 

Bridal:  

  • Lace and Swiss Dot!  The Jenny Yoo Collection really wowed us with their new bridal styles.  Two of my favorite dresses from the entire time I was in New York were by Jenny Yoo.   We also scouted several other bridal lines that you may see at Twirl in the future!

Bridesmaids: 

  • A definite "Mad Men" vibe was felt in the styles of many of the more structured type dresses we saw.  Bows, ruffles and feminine details were everywhere! 
  • Soft, romantic chiffon dresses are also huge and the draping and detail were amazing.

We are so excited to show you all of these dresses in person!  The iPad photos just do not do them justice!  We would love to hear what you think...and if you would like to be notified when any of the new dresses arrive, please let us know!  Call us at 859-309-2493 or email us at: ty@twirllexington.com.
