Droves of designers from across the pond are showing during Bridal Fashion Week this season. We asked six of them to dish on their collections, their dream clients, and their favorite places to see, shop, and stay in NYC. Below, Barcelona-based design duo (and sisters!) Yolanda and Cristina Perez of YolanCris dish on their collection and why they got into the business.

Brides: Is this the first time you are showing in New York?

YolanCris: Yes! People always tell us that our style would fit in perfectly here.
