Runway Show: Rivini Spring 2015 Collection

Last year we attended both semi-annual bridal markets. Last month, however, we took a pass — but admired from afar. Well, Rita Vinieris has done it again. Rivini’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection has what’s to be expected of the label: fantasy, romance and elegance. Described The Knot of the collection: “[The] line of wedding dresses plays with negative space to evoke a timeless, yet modern style. Rita Vinieris’ classic feminine silhouettes were given an update with modern prints, leather accents and subtle, revealing lace panels.” In other words, there’s a lot of dreaminess here. Floating, flowing and glistening fabrics met with regal designs, details and textures. Plunging necklines, structural bodices and touches of leather sprinkle this collection. It’s fabulous. Below, enjoy the latest gowns as plucked from The Knot and captured by Kurt Wilberding. You’ll also see select social media images intermixed; all Instagram photos are via Rita Vinieris’ official account […]

Runway Show: Kenneth Pool Spring 2015 Collection

As noted in our last post, in 2013 we attended both semi-annual bridal fashion weeks in New York City. This time around, however, we took a pass — but admired from afar. We shared photos from Ines Di Santo’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection, and this time we again consulted The Knot, with photos by Kurt Wilberding, to share with you the Kenneth Pool Spring 2015 Collection. Head designer Amsale Aberra’s streamlined 10-piece collection is one of great illusions, with each gown presenting an alluring front with a surprise in the back. WWD said of the collection: “Aberra targeted the sexy bride… The silhouettes were seductive, many in mermaid shapes and with daring low backs.” Described The Knot: “Stepping away from the bold, dramatic aesthetic of previous seasons, instead balancing form-fitting shapes and daring low backs with romantic touches.” We’ve also squeezed in a few Instagram-captured runway images; credits are below each […]
