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.

Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2013: Maria Elena Headpieces Private Viewing

It’s that time of year again: bridal fashion week, take two! Last April, Lovella packed up for a weekend in New York City to scout the latest collections for the latest and greatest in bridal dresses and accessories. This time around, it was much of the same: Quick traveling from appointment to runway show and vice versa, delight over the newest offerings and innovation in design, and absolute giddiness over selecting the cream of the crop to offer Southern California brides. In viewing the latest from Maria Elena Headpieces, we had free reign to “ooh” and “ahh” in private over headbands, clutches, headpieces and assorted jewelry. Brighter pieces resulted from opal and texture and depth of tulle, two items heavily incorporated in this season’s collection.

NYC Bridal Market 2013: Kenneth Pool Private Viewing

First we reported on our private viewing of the fabulous Maria Elena Headpieces collection, then we shared images from Ines Di Santos’ runway show which featured some of those same Maria Elena pieces. Now we’re sharing photos from our private Kenneth Pool viewing. We loved the collection. Said Lovella Bridal Wedding Fashion Expert and Stylist Nayri, “It was so light and airy with such detailed embroidery.” For example, the halter dress modeled below had a bodice composed of a stretch silk jersey that was lightweight and airy; in person it had a unique shine and feel to it. Concluded Nayri, the collection was a “really lovely blend of traditional and modern.” The collection’s talented head designer Amsale Aberra was featured on our blog a while […]

Welcome to part two of our private viewing of Kenneth Pool’s Fall 2013 Collection (click here for part one). We also posted exclusive photos from the runway show.
