Best of Bridal Fashion Week: Backstage Beauty & Marchesa Wedding Dresses
Held in Canoe Studios (where Beyonce’s Love on Top video was shot!), overlooking the Hudson and basked in the evening sun (New York has the best sunsets!) the models stood on pedestals dotted around the space, like beautiful real life mannequins.
It was a pretty gorgeous sight.
From the achingly detailed textures, to the most divine silhouettes, Marchesa’s gowns did not disappoint, with creations that were every bit as jaw-dropping as they look in the pictures (even more so, in fact!)
And with glistening hair accessories, sparkling jewellery, and super chic hair and make-up, even if your budget won’t stretch to a couture Wedding Dress, we’ve lots of inspiration from behind-the-scenes too.
About the Collection
Marchesa Bridal Fall 16 introduces an allure of featherlight elements coming together to embody the collection’s ethereal essence.
Cascading layers of illusion lace are gracefully paired with sheer, open-backs and cut-out details, creating such an airy feeling they seem to blur the lines between dreams and reality.
Lightweight boning and exposed ribbon corsetry add a subtle dash of drama to tiered ruffles and metallic-threaded Chantilly lace.
New necklines are artfully bejeweled while detachable skirts feature softly pleated tulle and lace sculpted peplums.
Lavishly embroidered cut-away along with delicate lace and ladder trim details adorn opulent ballgowns of the most romantic nature.
The dresses are just spectacular, but I do love seeing all the prep that goes on behind the scenes too.
