We’ve had such fun covering Bridal Market in our distinctively different way and we hope you have enjoyed each and every detail shot and spirited, colorful sketch!  The big moments this market had to do with whispers of color, sculptural/abstract blooms, curious laces and a noticeable nod to storytelling in the collections.  Tara LaTour may […]


Trend Sketching Bridal Market NYC 2012 – Watters

Playing with a bold color scheme that ranges from petal pink to midnight black, Watters and Wtoo keep it vibrant and young.  We had two favorites while visiting backstage at Bridal Market and the two looks could not be more different from one another! Iridescent sequins swirl-round a ball gown in a lacy pattern while substantial knit […]

When we read that Marchesa’s Fall 2013 collection was inspired by the heart of the Iris and the Bulgarian Rose, we were ready to be wowed.  Marchesa did not disappoint. The show opened with jagged edged florals in silk chiffon cascading down and pooling on the floor. Lavish scalloped beading with an exotic flare,  topped […]


Trend Sketching Bridal Market NYC 2012 – Leila Hafzi

We had the pleasure of stumbling upon international and eco-friendly designer Leila Hafzi.   Working in hand dyed natural silks dried in the open air of the Himalayas, her designs evoke the kinetic environment they are created in.  Rough cut edges and flowing, sweeping shapes in a palette of soft natural hues were a welcome break […]
