Bridal Fashion Week kicked off in New York City! Designers like Monique Lhuillier, Marchesa, Reem Acra, Carolina Herrera, Amsale, and more will debut their latest wedding dress collections, and Brides Fashion Director Rachel Leonard will be in the front row for every single show. As part of an ongoing fashion week series, Rachel will spotlight her favorite looks from the day to give our readers insider access to the wedding world's most gorgeous gowns. Inbal Dror, Ivy & Aster, Jenny Lee, and Austin Scarlett were some of the standout shows from day four. Here are Rachel's favorite looks from each collection.
Inbal Dror: Filled sexy yet classic looks, it's no surprise why this was one of the best shows of the day. With off-the-shoulder sleeves and a delicate fringed skirt, this strapless beaded wedding dress is perfect for a glam Gatsby-inspired affair.
Ivy & Aster: The latest collection Ivy & Aster featured boho-cool styles fit for the modern day bride like this pretty, lace-and-tulle A-line wedding dress.
Jenny Lee: While they may seem like contradictory styles, Jenny Lee expertly blended structured corset tops with soft, flowing skirts. The result? Light and airy wedding dress with a ton of style.
Austin Scarlett: Inspired by Gone with the Wind, the latest wedding dresses from Austin Scarlett brought the drama. Flattering silhouettes, expertly-layered details, and just a few perfectly-embellished dresses were shown. This ball gown, complete with a V-neckline and asymmetrical layered skirt, offers elegance and formality all in one.
