New York International Bridal Week 2013


Fashion-wise, New York is a happening place and the recent close of International Bridal Week on 14 October marked another successful event for this great, sleepless city. The bridal trade show took place at New York’s Pier 94, heralding the venue as a world-class location complete with glistening chandeliers and wall to wall white carpet.

Needless to say the display was spectacular with collections by favourites like Ellie Saab, Kelly Faetanini, Amanda Garrett, Elizabeth Bower and Tulle New York gracing the catwalk. Several designers caught our eye but one stand out was Marchesa. Soft capped sleeves and a divine arrangement of lace and tulle, Marchesa’s collection was visually arresting. Diverse, elegant and exquisitely made, it appeared the perfect range to suit a variety of sophisticated brides.

New York’s International Bridal Week is the embodiment of all we love about large-scale trade shows. It’s a glorious event that harbours a wealth of ideas and designs we may otherwise not know exist, plus, they are the best fun to attend. Check out some of our fave Marchesa designs below.
