Bridal week NYC
back in october I took the exciting trip to New York, wow what a city, the streets are packed full of an amazing atmosphere. While walking down 5th avenue we saw a bride and groom walk in to the middle of the road with their photographer, traffic stopped for them to have a kiss in the middle of the road, the photographer definitely got the perfect shot as onlookers including ourselves cheered with delight and well wishes.
So it was New York bridal week. What a fabulous show, huge halls filled with the most amazing bridal gowns and accessories. First stop was to a bridal boutique on 5th avenue to view the amazing galia Lahav collection. This collection did not disappoint. Beautiful laces, stunning backs and made of the best fabrics that hugged the body and designed to show off the bodies curves.
The next day started on a high with Claire pettibones fashion show and we had front row seats. It was great fun to catch up with a few wedding industry friends while we awaited for the show to start.We received a goody bag full of prettiness. I am absolutely in love with these beautiful dresses and the love that has gone in to designing them, Claire really puts her heart and sole in to her designs and this collection definitely reflected that. This was the first time I had met claire,her husband and her team and they were all so very welcoming and friendly. It is so nice to work with such a down to earth designer. (i even got to meet a star from my fav tv series vampire diaries who was also at the fashion show viewing Claires dresses for her wedding next year)
The whole day was so much fun. This trade show had such a lovely atmosphere and everyone was so kind and welcoming. It was so good to see how the bridal industry is in America.
The next exciting achievement was to meet suzanne neville and place our first order, such a wonderful lady. I am so excited to be working with her, her dresses are so beautiful and elegant. I have always loved her designs so was ecstatic to be able to hold the collection in serendipity brides.
Saturday night was a time to let the hair down and see the trendy meat packing district of NYC. We met up with some retailers, magazines and designers and enjoyed a few cocktails and made the most of our dancing shoes. Roll on nyc 2014
