Bridal Market has officially kicked off! We arrived in New York last night and have already had an eventful first day. This afternoon, after spending the morning near home base in the East Village, we threw on our heels and headed uptown for our first runway show, by a designer we are considering bringing to Little White Dress. (Trust us, many more details and photos to come if we do decide to add this world-renowned designer to our collection!)
The highlight of the day was Jenny Packham's 25th anniversary runway show and reception. To say it was beyond beautiful is an absolute understatement. Just to give you an idea of what it was like, one of The Knot's editors wrote afterward, "I just cried at the Jenny Packham fashion show. This is one of the top 5 prettiest things I've ever seen in my life."
The whole collection left us speechless: lots of shimmering, intricate beading, some gorgeous blush and light taupe options, and every detail displaying the elegant beauty we have come to expect from one of the world's most sought-after designers. Every gown was truly a work of art. Here is a quick peek of a few of the absolutely stunning beaded gowns we saw from Jenny Packham.
After the show was a reception to celebrate Jenny Packham's 25th anniversary as a designer. We caught up with Jenny, who stopped to say hi and chat with us about her new collection. (She even gave us the scoop on which gown from her new collection she thinks is going to be BIG in the bridal world. More on that later!)
Tomorrow we're headed to see a long list of amazing designers at Pier 94, where many top designers show their collections. Not to miss on tomorrow's schedule: Claire Pettibone's runway show! So much more to come, including lots more details and pictures of the unbelievable stunning new collection by Jenny Packham.
