Wedding dress trends from Bridal Market | Perfect Wedding Guide

Brides-to-be who are planning a wedding are likely thrilled to choose that perfect, beautiful wedding dress. Before hitting that first boutique, some may be interested in the latest fashions and trends, and the . Brides can get plenty of inspiration from the Bridal Market in New York, an event that took place last week and features the best wedding dress designers. According to The Huffington Post, many of the designers shared their viewpoints on their collection and the latest trends after the show.The iconic Monique Lhuillier mixed elegance and romance in her collection with floral appliques, lace and various embroideries. Lhuillier talked all about her designs, and how some could easily transfer into two looks.”I think the overskirt is going to be a very popular accessory,” Lhuillier told the news outlet. “These girls love to transform their gowns, so this is just having two looks in one night. All of the overskirts [on my dresses] come off, so you can have two looks.”Fashion designer Vatana Watters said one of the biggest trends she has seen is women shying away from the everyday strapless gown and opting for different varieties in necklines.”One [trend] that kind of stands out is the ladylike look, versus the daring, the overt,” Watters told the news source. “[That translates into] more varied necklines, even though over 70 percent of the girls wear strapless dresses. But with the ladylike look, you’ll see the bateau, the capped sleeve, the V-neck – so you’ll see more variety of necklines. I think that’s something that’s going to be very important and continuing for the next season.”Reem Acra brought her capped sleeves to the runway, and she believes this will continue to be a hit in the bridal world for the seasons to come, the media outlet reports.According to Women’s Wear Daily, other collections that brides were eagerly waiting to see included Vera Wang, who was all about the drama with high-volume cascading tiers and elaborate lace. Also, Amsale Aberra for Kenneth Pool kicked up the glamour with trumpet dresses and dramatic ballgowns, whereas Claire Pettibone went for elegance and a subtle beauty. Pettibone also believes that this designs with romantic lace and delicate sashes will be the new trend of the upcoming year.”I would say a little bit of modesty is happening, an understated quality, but still very opulent and beautiful,” she told HuffPost.

The Biggest Wedding Gown Trends for 2015

After 37 runway shows, 400+ Instagram shots, our first foray into Google Glass, and more espressos than we care to admit, we’ve compiled the standout trends from Bridal Fashion Week. Overall, we saw gowns take on a much more fluid shape than past seasons, making effortless elegance that much easier for brides to achieve. There were plenty of wow-worthy details to gush over, our favorite of which included sheer panels and glam necklines.

Let the wedding dress search begin!

1. Light-As-Air Ball Gowns 

Ball gowns are taking on a softer look thanks to breezy fabrics and a more relaxed silhouette. (Marie Antoinette would be jealous!) Designers including Vera Wang, Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier and more all went with a lighter approach this season.

2. Modern Minimalism

Bling will always have a special place in our hearts but some of this season’s most inspiring looks are tailored with clean lines, like this Amsale style pictured below. (They reminded us of Caroline Bessette and Cindy Crawford’s aisle style). This Americana aesthetic is ideal for the bride who wants to be comfortable yet chic on her wedding day.

3. A Cut Above

Cut-outs and crop tops are trending not just for the big day, but also for pre-wedding events like the bachelorette party and bridal shower. This risk-taking style first came to our attention back in the fall, when trendsetter Hayley Paigedebuted a gorgeous lilac version, and now more designers like Theia and Houghton Bride are following suit.

4. Ultra-Dramatic Necklines

Looking for something a little more unique than strapless or sweetheart necklines? High-neck styles and plunging V-necks were equally prominent at shows including Rivini, Marchesa, Kenneth Pool and more.

5. Sheer Magic

We were mesmerized by optical illusions like bodice netting (to look like skin) and overlays (perfect for showing a peek of leg). Keep the look PG-13 by opting for one or the other — not both. Reem Acra, Watters and Carolina Herrera all toed the line between sophisticated and sexy this season.

6. The Cold Shoulder

We spotted more off-the-shoulder styles than ever before and it’s no wonder why: they’re sexy yet romantic and above all, supremely figure-flattering. This sleeve treatment creates a triangle shape and whittles the waist. Maggie Sottero, Jenny Packham and Romona Keveza all featured this style at their runway shows.

7. Capelets Are Cooler Than Ever

Beloved by the vintage-inspired and boho set, there were some really interesting takes on capelets this season fromTheia, Angel Sanchez, Ines Di Santo and more. This accessory is perfect for brides who are getting married in a religious house of worship and are required to cover their arms but may not necessarily want to commit to sleeves.

8. Color Code

Who says you have to wear white? Blush was a favorite with girlie brides last season, but this season’s rainbow of gowns included more unexpected choices like pistachio at Monique Lhuillier, silvery purple at Kelly Faetanini and more.

To see the entire darius cordell couture collection that can be made to order upon request with changes…..please go to http://www.dariuscordell.com

this backless dress is actually in stock in a size 10.

The back of evening gown style #2002 from the Darius Cordell Couture collection is dramatic but still quite an elegant dress

the front of this garment has a high scoop neck but as you can see tha back is the main feature from darius designs is with this very low dropped cowl design with chiffon falls drapping down the side.

the fabrication is silk charmeuse and is very soft to the touch.  some think it is difficult to take care of but if the dress is dry cleaned after each wearing it will be fine.  storgage in a cool dry place is also important.

the cost for this silk evening dress is $1250.  With silk evening gowns made new the cost would be much higher.

pictures of the front of all evening dresses can be emailed upon request.

Dear Hunter,

I just received my dress in the mail yesterday — I LOVE IT!  It’s just everything I thought I would want and more.  The cut is so ridiculously close; I only have a few minor alterations to have done.  Thank you so much for your help with this.  I am certainly happy I went with your company!

I do plan to get the word out about this among my group of opera friends.  I hope you get responses!

Thank you and all of the team at Darius Cordell Couture for bringing such a fabulous dress to life,

J.Barton – Bloomington , NJ


David:
Although I got concerned about receiving my dress for the wear date I did get it the day before (almost too close for comfort). However, I must say the dress is absoulutely gorgeous.  My mother was a professional designer and seamstress for years so believe me when I say the dress and workmanship was without flaw. My daughter designed the dress for me and she was thrilled when we opened the package and her original sketch was taped to the outside.  You made her vision a lovely reality. I tried on the dress and all my husband could say was “WOW”  and after 28 years of marriage that is a great compliment.  But the best compliment came from my daughter.  She said “Mom, when I get married that is the dress I want you to wear.” It just can’t get any better than that.Thanks so very much,D.
