As a taste of things to come, we asked some of our favorite designers for a glimpse at the dresses they'll debut on the runways next week at Spring 2012 New York bridal market.

Adele Wechsler

"Who can ignore the wedding of the decade?" says the designer of this dress, which was inspired by Kate Middleton. Layers of washed silk organza form folds around the body in soft waves, creating a wide portrait neckline and breaking into a full skirt embellished with lace, fresh-water pearls, crystal and organza petals. Defining the rest of the collection as "luscious Earth princess," the designer also wanted to explore sustainable fabrics and earthly design influences. "I have no doubt that this princess cares about humanity and the world in which she lives. This is a collection made with sustainable fabrics, fair trade labor, and organic design elements."
