Bridal Fashion Week New York City 2015

Times they are a changing, and so is the way we dress.  Specifically, what I am referring to, is the “wedding dress”.  Gone, is the traditional “white wedding dress” of yesteryear.  Evidence of this trend for 2015 can be seen from the Bridal Fashion Week held in New York City.  I have never been to a fashion show in New York City however, I was fortunate enough to have acquired some exclusive photos from this years’ show, compliments of the San Francisco based online boutique Weddington Way. Weddington Way is an online boutique that offers brides and bridesmaids a better way to shop and interact through a virtual showroom experience.  Neato!  To see more of their stunning on trend bridal wear please click here  (I already did)  So, now I have the pleasure of sharing these lovely photos with all of you!  Thank you Weddington Way!  This is super exciting! What I find really interesting is how wedding dress trends for 2015 are influencing every day and high-fashion looks.  

Let's take a look...

Bridal Fashion Week 2015 New York City Galia Lahav Bridal Weddings Creme Trend Lace Wedding Dress
 Galia Lahav 
Cream Theme

On the runways from Emporio Armani, Balmain, Ellie Saab, Milly and Alexander Wang featured cream for Spring and Summer 2015 collections similar to this bridal dress featured by Galia Lahav.  White dresses used to be the traditional way of dressing brides, but that is no longer the case.  "The Cream Theme" is dominating the bridal scene and is surfacing in mainstream fashion as well.   Diane Kruger wore a stunning cream two-piece couture outfit from Chanel on the red carpet, as did Dianna Agron by Tory Burch.  


Bridal Fashion Week 2015 New York City Romona Keveza Weddings Floral Brocade Fabric Pink Brocade Wedding Dress
Romona Keveza


Floral Brocade Fabric

This beautiful texture of fabric appeared on the runway for Fall 2015 in the collections of Burberry Prorsum, Simone Rocha, Mary Katrantzou and again for Spring 2015 in the Ready-to-Wear category by Prada.  Brocade is one of those timeless fabrics that always struck me as regal, sophisticated and feminine.  Sophia Vergara wore a lovely gold brocade dress by Romona Keveza to the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony where she received her own star, and celebrity  Salma Hayak also wore a gorgeous white version of it by Alexander McQueen at the Golden Globes.

Bridal Fashion Week 2015 New York City Claire Pettibone Wedding Dress Romantic Bohemian Weddings Cowgirl Hat Black Lace
Claire Pettibone


Romantic Bohemian 


This dress by Claire Pettigbone is probably one of the most symbolic of the change in traditionalism in the bridal scene.  This dress is unique and has a very beautiful and free-flowing feeling to it.  The care-free bohemian trend is nothing new, but it's strength as a trend is steadily increasing and is now progressing into the bridal scene with a romantic twist.  This is probably one of the longest trends that has taken hold of the fashion scene as far as I can tell.  Many seem to be embracing this trend and flowing with it.  Influences of this trend were also viewed on the runways by Etro, Valentino, Roberto Cavalli, Dries Van Noten, Vera Wang, Altazurra, Emilio Pucci, Alberta Ferretti, and Blumarine.  Imogen Poots also wore something similar on the red carpet by Alberta Ferretti in a long black lace sheer gown.



Bridal Fashion Week 2015 New York City Weddings Transparency Wedding Dress


Transparency 

This look in transparency, is appearing in bridal dresses with a minimal amount of see-through lace like we have seen on celebrities lately.  It's a way to show some skin, with class. Similar looks from this trend are going beyond just illusion necklines on the red carpet.  Some women who wore it amazingly well at the Met Gala were: Beyonce in Givenchy, Kim Kardashian in Roberto Cavalli and Jennifer Lopez in Versace.  This is my favorite trend because it is so mysterious, yet classy and glamorous all put together in one.

Bridal Fashion Week 2015 New York City Weddings Pearls Embellished Wedding Dress






Highly Embellished Beads and Embroidery 

Highly embellished looks like these from Badgley Mischka and Anne Barge appeared from designers such as: Erdem, Emilio Pucci, Saint Laurent and Christopher Kane for the Spring/ Summer collections this year. This trend will definitely grab your attention with some sparkle and shine and intricately embroidered pieces this season.  Some stand out dresses that I enjoyed the most on the red carpet with this trend were: Rhianna’s fur embellished golden cathedral train statement gown by Guo Pei, Amanda Seyfriend’s delicate white haute couture 3-D floral beaded dress by Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Georgia May Jaggar in a charming shiny lavender silk embellished dress with crystal details by Gucci, Poppy Delvigne in a graceful creme 3-D floral gown by Marchesa and Bee Shafer in a dazzling burgundy custom embroidered gown by Alexander McQueen.


Bridal Fashion Week 2015 New York City Lela Rose Weddings Feathers Draping Over One Shoulder
Lela Rose

Draping Over One Shoulder 

This gorgeous draped Grecian goddess bodice from Lela Rose is much like the pretty pink dress that we saw Lizzy Caplan wearing on the red carpet for the Met Gala by Donna Karen Atelier and Amy Adams at the Golden Globes with her baby blue Versace gown.  We also saw it appear again in high style on the runway in many pieces from Reem Acra’s Ready-to-Wear dresses.  I love the classic look of draping.  It's an instant head turner.

Feathers

Don't you just love anything that floats when you walk! For Fall 2015 we saw a lot of feathers floating around the runways from Marchesa, Rachel Zoe, Libertine, Rodarte, Proenza, Naeem Khan, and Michael Kors just to name a few. From the red carpet, we also saw the feathered look on Julianne Moore at this year’s Golden Globe Awards as well as Kim Kardashian in Roberto Cavalli at the Met Gala.  You see, the magical thing about feathers, is that with each step,  they so delicately flutter in a sort of captivating enchanting flow.  With each plume moving in slow motion, it's almost as if time slows down just a wee bit. 


Bridal Fashion Week 2015 New York City Watters Bridesmaids Weddings
Watters Bridesmaids Dresses

For the Bridesmaids


Pink Blush, Glacier Gray and Orchid Tint are just a few elegant colors that were named for this year's trending bridesmaids dresses. You can see these tones reflected in these exquisite bridesmaids dresses from Watters for this upcoming wedding season in 2015.  

What do you think of these trends?  What is your favorite trend or trends?  What color would you choose for your bridesmaids dresses?  

I can't wait to hear from all of you, so please leave your comments in the boxes below.


Hope you have some fun adding some of these trends into your week!

  18. Woe, these are all so stunning. I love the attention to detail and really, how much detail there is with every single dress. I always tend to go for romantic looks when thinking of wedding dresses. The color for my brides maid dresses was a royal blue. Beautiful shade that really made them pop!

  26. I am really jealous you got to attend this show and I am loving the Anne Barge dress with the white beads and backless dress. I have so many different dress ideas pinned to my Pinterest of dresses I have in mind for when that day comes. For a bridesmaid dress, I think I want to do a light grey or light pink, I haven't quite decided yet. I like very soft pastel tones for the bridesmaid dresses.

    1. I didn't actually get to go. Weddington Way gave me these photos from their attendance at the show. Glad you like these! The Grey or pink sounds amazing. Can't go wrong with either. I have seen a few people mix two dress colors also.
