Last week, Valencienne Bridal had their eyes set on the New York Bridal Couture show searching for what was ‘haute’ on the runways for Spring. Dozens of top designers showcased their bridal collection at the annual bridal week.
Next years bridal trends are Peplums, textured bodices and lots of tulle and the colour trend is red and Black gowns. The details are stunning – exposed backs and lots of lace (Thank you Kate Middleton).
Vera Wang ditched the White and ivories this season and opted for a more striking look of Crimson and Scarlett red.
Valencienne is happy to report that these looks are on our store floor including a jaw dropping red ballroom gown. We chose a peplum dress for our 2011-2012 ad campaign and we are glad to report that we were ahead of our time. Valencienne has already designed two new lace gowns to stay on trend for 2013. One which we named ‘Grace Kelly’ which is simple elegance with a beautiful lace bolero that buttons down the back. The other gown is form fitting and sexy to reveal a beautiful open back. Every year we design our gowns hoping to capture the up and coming trends and use inspiration from the couture shows in Paris. I had to smile reading twitter on Saturday and seeing Peplums are on fire here in New York. Here at Valencienne Peplums have been ‘Haute’ since 2011. While in New York we see designers push the envelope with the most outrageous styles to get the attention of the buyers and make a statement and even set the trends. Having designed gowns for 27 years, I find those statement pieces, although amazing to look at, are not necessarily for every bride. Its fantastic that Valencienne gets the opportunity to incorporate a current trend and make it more wearable for your body shape and your wedding day.
