Fashion Week: Report from the Front Row

Many wedding designers are a touch nostalgic this season, proving that timeless, chic looks never fade. Think less Britney and more Audrey.

Christos' amazing mix of lace, tulle, organza and textured embellishments (in place of beading) were fantastic and gave an air of the modern debutante.

Fresh: check. Young: check. Chic: double check. Romona Keveza topped her superbly cut looks with veils, but old fashioned it wasn't. It was modern and luxurious.

Known for bridesmaids, and new to weddings, is Aria. The mostly short '60s silhouettes felt very Jackie... but gave a nod to Judy Jetson with giant beehives wrapped in Saran wrap headbands. (Do not try that at home!)

On the other end of the style spectrum, Amsale looked the future squarely in the eye and embraced it full force. Her crisp, sharp trapeze and geometric silhouettes and details in clean taffetas and failles hit all the right notes for the uber-modern bride. If this is the future of wedding fashion, then Beam Me Up Scotty! —Juli Alvarez, Fashion Editor, Modern Bride Magazine
