As we do each season, Brides asked designers showing Fall 2013 collections to grant us a sketched sneak peek at the gowns soon hitting the New York runways. (Afterward, it's fun to compare the sketches to the real-life gowns they become.) Here, Nicole Miller explains her approach to designing for a diversity of brides:
Describe your collection in a word:
What inspired this season's theme?
I am inspired by the different types of brides—and weddings—I have been seeing lately. I designed dresses for each type, including the traditional bride, the modern bride, the feminine bride, the boho bride—each dress speaks to a different style, while keeping true to the Nicole Miller bridal aesthetic.
What is unique about this sketch in particular?
This dress speaks to the modern bride, with a subtly feminine twist. The sheath silhouette is chic and understated, while the lace detailing evokes a more romantic feeling.
Check back daily to see more sneak peek sketches from our favorite bridal fashion designers, and browse more of our favorite looks from last season's Bridal Fashion Week.
