NYC Bridal Market- Day 1

There’s nothing like the city in the springtime…..And a few weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of meeting with some of the top designers in the industry at New York City’s Bridal Market. Each designer showed off their fabulous new collections and showed the world what’s in store for brides this coming fall. The weekend was filled with viewing collection after collection, all of which exhibited the most intricate and detailed of designs.

Day 1, I traveled up to the Garment District to Judd Waddell’s showroom. Judd’s designs wowed me with their simple elegance and stood true to his design philosophy: “notice the woman first, the dress second.” I love Judd’s jeweled accents & broaches, along with his diamond jeweled buttons. They give each dress the perfect hint of glamour. Here were some of my favorites:

Next, it was on to the Modern Trousseau showroom where the girls & designer Callie Tein welcomed me with open arms & champagne. They were absolutely fabulous! Along with their new collection….. From romantic lace to edgy ball gowns, you can’t go wrong with this collection!

More to come with the latest from Anne Barge & Jim Hjelm.....
