Bridal Fashion Week: Jorge Manuel Private Viewing

With this post we wrap up our visit to Fall 2014 NYC Bridal Market, and we’re leaving things on a high note! Jorge Manuel is celebrating his company’s fifth anniversary with the fabulous haute couture Fleur Collection 2014. This collection, presented with a lush garden theme backdrop, was inspired by flowers from world-famous gardens. “I [studied] each flower and its symbolic meaning, [and] examined its structure and allowed this to influence the designing process,” Manuel noted in the collection’s official statement. The twelve gowns in the collection took a year to complete, and with over 1,000 hours of hand-beaded work invested, was clearly a labor of love. That said, the beadwork in this collection is exquisite. The gown shapes are flattering and classic, but there are surprises galore. For instance, a gown with a plunging neckline on a bodice adorned with embellishments so feminine and romantic that it doesn’t teeter […]

Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2013: Rivini by Rita Vinieris Fashion Show

After this, only one post remains chronicling our bridal market coverage. It’s been fun! The Rivini by Rita Vinieris Fall 2014 Collection was inspired by Venice. More specifically, “the beautiful harmony of the gentle gothic architecture reflecting on the shimmering waters,” according to the Collection’s official statement. The tone was undoubtedly set when the show opened with two brides, one in a jumpsuit, one in a dress, holding hands. The statement made the news for sure, but to us it was a simple proclamation that love is universal and equal. This collection was full of sweet feminine, fashion-forward shimmering drama. Our favorite part was the jumpsuits. Wedding fashion specialist and expert Nayri: “We picked up the very first look that comes out with the embroidered top (below). It is such PERFECTION! Rita’s the only one we saw do multiple jumpsuits, and it was love at first sight. A jumpsuit is […]

Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2013: Ines Di Santo Private Viewing, Pt. 2

This is part two of two (view part one) of our private viewing of Ines Di Santo’s Couture Collection during bridal fashion week last weekend. Noted the official statement that accompanied the designer’s new Fall 2014 collection, the “Couture Collection takes flight into a dreamy, sensual, otherworldly realm with a feminine palette. [Atlantis] inspired the airy silhouettes that seem to float along with sublime lightness.” And the last sentence in the statement was quite apropos: “Ines Di Santo’s latest couture statement is a dazzling tribute to the feminine form.” Enjoy the inspiration!

Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2013: Ines Di Santo Private Viewing, Pt. 1

Welcome back as we share our whirlwind journey of bridal market, the biannual fashion week event in New York City. First we shared our viewing of the latest from Maria Elena, like pieces infused with opal and tulle and a “something blue” mink clutch. Now we move on to our private viewing of the Fall 2014 Couture Collection by Toronto-based designer Ines Di Santo, a Lovella favorite. Said Lovella Bridal wedding fashion expert and stylist Nayri of the collection: “Per usual, her collection is extremely dynamic. There is truly something here for every style bride. From light-as-a-feather soft and romantic gowns to slinky/sexy form-fitted looks to a dramatic embroidered ball gown, you name it—she has it. And boy, oh boy, she never disappoints!” Something particularly special from the collection is a lace dress with purple underlay (pictured below). Any color may be placed beneath the dress, which will ever so […]
