I’ve been on high alert all weekend following the many, many live updates from the Bridal Fashion Market in NY. Brides.com is doing a fantastic job on Twitter (@brides) and on their blog and Darcy Miller and Katie Hatch are doing a superb job on The Brides Guide blog by Martha Stewart. I’m sorry to my family for being on my phone all weekend hungrily checking for updates!Platinum by Priscilla of Boston does this gorgeous high end line featuring luxurious fabrics and embellishments. What a dramatic fashion forward piece shown above!!!
I would have loved to see the Carolina Herrera show at Tiffany & Co. in NY last night. Her collection was inspired by painters such as Goya, Matisse, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Tamara de Lempicka, Giovanni Boldini, Georges Seurat. Each stunning gown reflected details defining each artist’s style. The above image is from this collection, but I can’t figure out which artist this gown reflects. I majored in art history in college- bad student!!
Jenny Packham showed a new line featuring exquisite detail and presentation. I love how her designs are so much about jewelry. In the above detail it’s as if a jeweled belt was sewn right on the dress. Stunning!
I really wish I could have been in New York to see these shows in person. Thank goodness for the age of blogging and micro blogging!!
