We’ll never tire of fantastical bridal confections from Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Marchesa and the like, but the inspiration that tickled us pink (err, white) at New York’s Fall 2016 Bridal Week came from the rising designer talent. Nothing tops the triumph of taking your turn down the aisle rocking a dress no one else can get her hands on, so we fully support off-the-radar “I do” choices. Whether you favor traditional, bohemian or avant-garde, check out these 5 up-and-comers to consider now.
For the wanderlust bride, Grace Loves Lace offers modern, free-spirited designs handmade of French lace and silk. We love this Australian line for its timeless aesthetic and uniquely romantic feel.
For the indie bride with a bit of edge, the Israeli mother-daughter design team behind Mira Zwillinger delivers. Delicate embroidery and intricate beading feel sophisticated and undeniably cool.
From delicate lace gowns to über-chic bridal tuxes, couturier Victoria Kyriakides, whose master atelier is located in Athens, Greece, is one to watch. We're drawn to the feminine cuts and minimalist silhouettes.
For a refined take on bohemian, Greek designer Christos Costarellos is a need-to-know. Delicate lace gowns are modernized with fresh silhouettes that feel just right for the beach bride and beyond.
For an of-the-moment take on traditional, Marie Victoria offers a variety of sleek gowns with dynamic details—an ideal look for the contemporary bride with classic style.
