A Recap of Spring Bridal Fashion Week in New York from Ninth & Everett

Thursday, May 4, 2017

It happens twice a year and brides and wedding industry vets wait in anticipation to see what each wedding dress designer will send down the runway at New York Bridal Fashion Week! I know a lot of Nashville wedding professionals made their way out to New York for the big show, and we were fortunate enough to speak with wedding planners & designers Ninth & Everett about their experience at the show! Josiah + Blake experienced the Kelly Faetanini + Lela Rose runway shows firsthand! We sat down with Josiah to talk about 3 of the latest trends for the upcoming bridal season!



1) Color

According to Josiah, many of the dress designers decided to forego the traditional white and ivory for a pop of color this season! The most prominent color incorporated into gowns this year was black. And we’re not talking about adding a simple black sash or small beaded black details… Kelly Faetanini decided to incorporate an all black ostrich feather skirt into her signature full A-line feathered look. Josiah also noticed black sheath slips underneath sheer white dresses to give a moody peek of black for an all-over look. Mixing the traditional white with black was also a trend - white bodices with black skirts and the reverse. So incredibly chic and modern!


2) Mermaid No More

Out of all the silhouettes that walked the runway this year, Josiah says Mermaid dresses were few and far between. The fitted look with dramatic poofs starting at the knee were not to be found, but A-line and sheath dresses were ruling the runways last week in NYC! Instead, we’re seeing more out of the box dresses and unique silhouettes.


3) Pant Suits & Jumpsuits

Designers were escaping tradition and feeling the liberty to design outside of the box. Josiah mentioned that jumpsuits and pant suits were prominent silhouettes walking the catwalk. More and more designers are accommodating tastes for all marriages and women who may feel uncomfortable in a traditional ball gown dress. This off-beat trend is alive and well - and some designers like Lela Rose styled overcoats over the dresses and jumpsuits to freshen up this fun new trend!



All in all, Josiah says the new tradition is to be NOT traditional. We LOVE this here at NBG and are excited to see more untraditional wedding dresses incorporated into Nashville weddings!
