New York Bridal Market: Spring 2012 Collections, Part 1

  |   By Nicole Keen

A romantic look from Sarah Jassir's latest collection.

Today was a flurry of runway shows and market appointments: a whirlwind of organza ruffles and flashbulbs! Several trends of note have emerged, including textural treatments, girly details (bows and rosettes) and sleeves---the Kate Middleton effect, perhaps?


New York Bridal Market: Spring 2012 Collections, Part 1

At Christos, the mood was romantic and modern. Standout dresses included a ballerina-chic tulle ballgown and a sophisticated silk organza gown with a crumb catcher and bustled skirt. Kenneth Pool's latest collection was all about dramatic draped ballgowns and show-stopping extras, like a divine shredded tulle capelet. Carolina Herrera showed 14 different gowns for 14 different brides---from beachy brides to second-time brides, there was something for everyone in this collection. My favourite look? An ivory gown with black embroidered flowers (the crowd released a collective gasp when this dress turned the corner!). For Sarah Jassir, who has worked for Amsale, Vera Wang and Valentino, this season was all about "Desire" (the collection's name). Overall, the silhouettes were sexy and svelte with plunging necklines and/or low backs. Other gowns incorporated soft colours, like blush pink (see above). Amsale showed a perfectly pretty collection consisting of mod minis and ultrafeminine trumpet gowns (one with an organza ruffle train stands out in particular). Need beauty inspiration for your big day? Take a cue from this show---models rocked sleek high ponytails and boldly coloured lips.
