The Best of NYFW Spring 2018

Every New York Fashion week, we get a little bit giddy...because it means Bridal Fashion Week is just around the corner!  Lucky for us, NYFW usually gives us an idea of what to expect when October rolls around.  Here is the trend we expect to see walk down the aisle for Bridal Market:

 

TEXTURE & SHAPE!

Seriously, we've been loving the bold push of surface texture and voluminous shape when it comes to NYFW.  Forget floral prints. 2018 is going to all about the return of the ballgown & surface texture details. We haven't seen the end of florals (you'll see what we mean), but we're loving the modern and edgy, new floral vibe that designers are bringing for this season. 

 

Milly certainly showed flare and flounce with ruffles for bridal & bridesmaids.

Brandon Maxwell kept the ballgown voluminous shape, but also experimented with engineered, textured prints and sumptuous knit tops.

Zac Posen wasn't ready to give up pastels and florals, but damn did he do it right! Not only did he give us dreamy, 1950's cinched waists and va-va-voom hips, but he accented it with embroidery & rosettes that are to...die...for.

Oscar de la Renta is keeping most of the bridal fashion for October, but this highly embellished gown with layers of frothy tulle got us giddy for what is to come.

Naeem Khan always impresses us with an ethereal, boho nature. Not only do we see interesting surface texture, but again he brought us more voluminous shapes bringing the cinched waist back a la mode.

J Mendel really honed in on subtle texture in this collection.  The first look featuring the appearance of stripes by changing the pattern of lace? Genius. But the last featured gown? Showing smaller texture towards the waist and gradually growing into longer pleats to accentuate the appearance of the growing volume? Genius...again.

All hail Badgley Mischka. Leave it to them to sum up all of our trend forecasting into the last show. 3D florals? Check. Engineered embroidery? Check. Voluminous shape? Check. This show had it ALL. And did you notice how each earring is paired perfectly with the dress? I mean - we can't even ask you to rent with Happily Ever Borrowed in that case, you NEED those matching earrings.

Marchesa never disappoints. It's always frothy and lovely and glamorous and we love it. Texture is always done right here, and when they threw some pearls on the last piece? Swoon.
