New York Bridal Fashion Week-Trends for 2017

We love the fall!  Wedding season in the Hudson Valley is in full swing, we’re starting to receive all of the photos of our Real Chamonix Brides, and we’re gearing up to bring in some new styles for the coming year!

Twice a year, we head down to New York City to see our favorite designers and scope out what’s new on the bridal scene.  Since wedding trends don’t change as quickly as fast fashion trends it’s always exciting to see who brought something new and different to the table.  This year here are a few trends we saw:

Simply Glamorous:

Easy and flowy are still the most popular styles, but this season we saw a return to simplicity and glamour.   Luxe fabrics like silk Mikados, organzas, and satins stood out in a sea of tulle and lace. With the focus on fit and special details, we were excited to see the return of the an Old Hollywood look.

This Alvina Valenta, Sophia Tolli, and Wtoo all had these strikingly simple looks we loved!

Sophia Tolli construction and fabric quality always give you an impeccable fit.

Gilded Grace 

The opposite of simple.  Move over traditional beading on a white, ivory, or even blush gown- there’s a gold rush coming! Hints of gold embellishments adorned gowns at almost every show we saw.

We were wowed by this Wtoo rose gold number!

The gold details on this Sophia Tolli created the most beautiful waistline.

 

New Necklines:

The plunging neckline made its debut last year.  And this year many designers picked up this way to add a sexy touch in a classy way.

This Wtoo plunging neckline with an illusion back was pretty spectacular.

The boatneck of this Sophia Tolli makes the plunge demure and classy.

High necklines were also popular.  Ti Adora and Alvina Valenta showed a variety of modest necklines.

The 3-D floral trend on these Alvina Valenta’s was also something we spotted at a few other shows!

 

Sleeves:

We know!  You want sleeves.  Truth be told, we’ve been hesitant to bring them in so far, not because we don’t love them as much as you do, but because if not done well, they can make a bride look matronly- and who wants that! But this year, we were REALLY excited with our options.

Alvina Valenta channeled Halston for this classic yet non-traditional bohemian wedding look.

And this Alvina Valenta was the star of all of the shows.  A cashmere organza with beaded lace bodice, low back, and sleeves. It was pure perfection!

As you can see, we had to use the image our favorite gowns from Brides Magazine because our phones died so quickly from posting on Instagram all day.  But even with a graininess, you can just tell these dresses are amazing! Which one of these styles is your favorite?  Be sure to let us know so we can add it to our growing collection!

And if you want to see styles similar, but don’t want to wait until February when these start trickling in be sure to follow on Instagram and Facebook for more ideas!
