Naeem Khan himself oversees the final touches of his Winter Garden bridal collection presentation at Bridal Fashion Week in New York
Naeem Khan – without exception – leaves us and the rest of the fashion industry in awe every season. Beyond the absolutely spectacular, intricately beaded, glamorous gowns that his collections are known for, his presentations are always a breath of fresh air. Instead of introducing his collection in a standard runway show format, he shows the collection by grouping the models in an artful arrangement, this season against a wall of enormous white paper blooms. The effect with his Winter Garden collection was that of a striking army of luxurious snow queens, and it was, to say the least, beautiful.
This collection featured beaded and feathered mini dresses, the most sophisticated bridal pantsuit we’ve ever seen (reminiscent of what Amal Alamuddin wore to the civil ceremony when she wed George Clooney in Venice last month), romantic ball gowns and A-lines, and something very amazing called Liquid Organza (which we’ll explain in the next post, showing every look in detail). As usual, we were inspired by the incredible thought and talent that goes into every detail of Naeem Khan’s designs. And as usual, we were incredibly excited by our choice of gowns to bring to Little White Dress. Naeem Khan truly elevates bridal fashion to a whole new level, and we are honored to be the exclusive Naeem Khan retailer in Colorado. The gorgeous Winter Garden bridal collection will be available at Little White Dress in Spring 2015.
Enjoy the Naeem Khan Winter Garden bridal collection presentation, and stay tuned for detailed photos of each gown!
The beautiful Reem Acra showroom on 5th Avenue in New York
We always love seeing a collection up close after seeing the gowns on the runway, and it was no exception with Reem Acra‘s latest collection, called Let There Be Light. Being able to touch the fabric and see the intricate beading and lace gives us a completely different perspective on how beautiful and well made Reem Acra’s gowns are. What we loved about this collection in particular were the gowns that were light, had beautiful movement, and that had the subtly special details that we just adore about Reem Acra’s designs.
Seeing a collection up close also gives us the opportunity to make thoughtful, considered decisions about which gowns our brides will love most. During our one-on-one appointments we see each gown individually, consider the retail price of the gown, as well as other similar styles we may already have in store, and then we decide which ones to carry at Little White Dress. It can be a difficult decision when there are so many gorgeous gowns! But thankfully we know our brides very well, and we’re always able to narrow it down to a selection that we know will be perfect for Little White Dress brides.
We’ll share which gowns are coming to Little White Dress in Spring 2015 as the gowns start to arrive, but for now you can see the entire collection as we saw it at Bridal Fashion Week in New York!
A selection of these gowns will be at Little White Dress starting Spring 2015! And the entire collection will be in store during our Reem Acra Trunk Show, January 16th-18th – it’s never too early to schedule an appointment! Call 303-814-8972 for more information or to reserve your appointment.
Reem Acra‘s latest bridal collection, Let There Be Light, is a tour of inspiring bridal fashion. From the crop tops that the press can’t stop talking about to the elegant and traditional ball gowns, there really is something in this collection for every bride. Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver had the privilege of attending the runway show during Bridal Fashion Week in New York. The detailed and gorgeous gowns were shown by models draped and adorned with cascading florals, and with buds, crystals, and pearls woven through their hair. The finale looks even included electronically illuminated lights in the models’ hair, lending literal meaning to the name of the collection.

We’re just back in Denver after a whirlwind Bridal Fashion Week in New York, where bridal designers from around the world showed their new collections and where we at Little White Dress Bridal Shop picked out all the new gowns we’ll have in store next spring. We’ll be sharing lots more on our blog in the coming days, with in-depth coverage of all the fabulous runway shows and the latest collections. But for now we’re sharing a recap of our favorite gowns from Little White Dress’ lineup of talented designers.
We had hundreds and hundreds of gowns to choose from and we are so excited about the selection we’re bringing to our brides. Rather than choose gowns and accessories based on trends that may or may not stick around (Google “bridal crop top” for an example!), we are always focused on choosing the most stylish, timeless, and beautiful selection for all our brides – whether they’re getting married on the beach, ball room, or mountaintop, whether they’re traditional or more modern, and whether they have a $1,500 budget or a $15,000 budget.
With that – our top picks from Bridal Fashion Week!
Claire Pettibone’s Gothic Angel Collection
This gown from Claire Pettibone‘s stunning and unique Gothic Angel collection left our jaws on the floor. With shimmering metallic lace, the most delicate sleeves, and just the right amount of embellishment at the waist, it manages to be both romantic and modern, and unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. We knew we had to have this dress at Little White Dress!
Reem Acra’s Let There Be Light Collection
Light and silky fabric paired with cascading (and elongating) sequins: this Reem Acra gown put a big ol’ smile on our faces. Imagine dancing the night away in this dress! The slit is optional, so you can go show-stopping or more demure (as demure as a sequined bodice can get!).
Liancarlo’s Fall 2015 Bridal Collection
Who knew that macrame could be so romantic and modern? We’ve seen a lot of things, but we’d never seen macrame embroidery – until we saw this gorgeous dress by Liancarlo. In an ultra-flattering shape and with lots of incredible texture, we loved this one the moment she caught our eye.
Naeem Khan’s Winter Garden Collection
Leave it to Naeem Khan to have us in utter awe over every single gown in his new collection. When it came time to choose which ones to bring to Little White Dress, we couldn’t pass up this glamorous ball gown. With a silver beaded bodice and a skirt that is light as air, we can already picture this gown twirling in the ball rooms of Denver and the winter wonderlands of the mountains.
Anne Barge’s Fall 2015 Collection
For brides looking for a clean, unembellished dress that is anything but boring – the search is over: this Anne Barge gown is your dress. We have never, ever seen such a stunningly simple gown. Shown here with a removable belt, just imagine the accessorizing that could be done with this dress – or let the simplicity shine through with minimal jewelry and accessories. We still can’t decide which version we love more – classic ivory, or the palest blush shown here. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this gown!
Matthew Christopher’s Inspiration Collection
This Matthew Christopher gown was a no brainer for us. Romantic, unique, versatile, and just plain pretty, this dress is an updated version of one of our most popular gowns, Sofia by Matthew Christopher. We know this brand new beauty will be an even bigger hit with our brides!
Charlie Brear’s 2015 Collection
The softest lace, an easy fit, optional sleeves, and that instant It-girl factor. This Charlie Brear gown has Little White Dress Bride written all over it, in the most effortlessly beautiful way that is synonymous with Colorado brides.
Marchesa 2015 Bridal Collection
Our brides aren’t afraid of a little color, which is why we were smitten with this Marchesa gown in the loveliest shade of champagne. Since we can’t all be as sun-kissed as this model, we tested out the color against our paler skin (some may in fact call our skin color a shade of translucent), and it was just as flattering. We’re picturing this warm-hued gown against a cozy Colorado fall backdrop.
Sassi Holford’s 2015 Bridal Collection
Let us count the ways we love this dress by Sassi Holford: 1) Guipure lace has that vintage vibe without following any trend that screams vintage. 2) The V-back shows just enough skin without leaving you completely exposed. 3) The slight illusion with lining on the back extending a few inches below the lace. 4) The way the lace on the sleeve hangs in the prettiest way. We could go on… but let’s just say that we know our brides will love this dress as much as we do!
Lis Simon’s 2015 Collection
This voluminous, romantic, lace-bodice ball gown by Lis Simon is fantastic. When you hear that it retails for LESS than $2,000, it goes to a whole new level of amazing. Not every bride can (or wants to!) break the bank for her wedding dress, but that doesn’t mean she should sacrifice style and quality. That’s why we love that this gown is a whole lotta amazing dress for not a whole lotta money.
All of these gorgeous gowns and many more are coming to Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver in Spring 2015! Keep an eye here for more coverage of Bridal Fashion Week, including the complete collections from several of our designers and behind-the-scenes as we picked gowns and accessories for our brides!
