On the Catwalk - New York Bridal Week 2013

The New York International Bridal Week will take place this month. There have been five shows since the first event revitalized the bridal industry in 2010 and Bridal Week now attracts thousands of designers, manufacturers and retailers.

Several beautiful wedding garments for Bridal Week have been previewed and all are incredibly exciting. Created by the best-known fashion designers on today's market, the bridal gowns have been causing a real stir on the catwalk and a range of interesting styles have emerged.

Vera Wang is well known for her wedding dresses. She has experimented extensively with lace in a great variety of forms, including lace applique, vintage lace, handwrought and guipure lace. Her signature creation included the increasingly-popular illusion neckline that has been recently seen on catwalks around the world, intricately embellished with patterned and corded lace. The highly embellished fabric was extensively used throughout Wang's collection, which sets the standard for current bridal trends.

Inspired by Grace Kelly's famous silhouette, the long, lace-sleeved wedding gown has enjoyed a massive surge in popularity after being worn by Kate Middleton at her wedding in 2011. Designer Oscar de la Renta has taken this look to new levels of drama with intricately-patterned lace sleeves and billowing skirts, creating a truly appealing look. Cute cap sleeves, ideal for a summer wedding outdoors, also featured in the collection.

Sophisticated necklines on classic bridal gowns were chosen by Carolina Herrera to give her models a modern, edgy look. The asymmetric neckline, which is particularly ideal for tall or broad-shouldered brides, was also seen in the bridal dress collections of both Monique Lhuillier and Vera Wang. All of Herrera's dresses featured a traditional silhouette combined with a modern feel, creating a truly unique and stunning collection.
