2017 wedding dresses from New York Bridal Week runways

Bridal fashion straight from the catwalk


New York Bridal Week 12

A sneak peek at 2017 wedding dress trends straight from the catwalk of New York Bridal Week

Fabric flowers

Wedding dresses featuring 3D fabric flowers is a blossoming trend seen right across 2017 wedding dress collections.

Unsurprisingly pretty floral print makes an appearance in time for Spring 2017, from dainty, romantic petals to dramatic oversized blooms.

Floral applique over nude illusion is another key trend.

Futuristic

It wouldn’t be New York Bridal Week without some experimental bridal-wear looks. Theia was a talking point for his otherworldly, Space Age collection, include a galaxy-themed dresses and a moulded plastic corset.

Tons of tulle

Bringing things back down to earth again, designers turned to tulle. From fishtails to over-skirts and layered ballgown skirts, tulle has been incorporated across an array of silhouettes.

Pale blue

A number of designers incorporated pale blue hues for spring and it was the colour of choice for two J Mendel strapless styles; a pleated chiffon asymmetrical dress, and a metallic embellished gown. Angel Sanchez’s stole the show with a gorgeous light blue racer back gown featuring floral applique.

Modern ball gowns

Randi Rahm’s ball gown features a traditional, floaty full skirt paired with a structured bodice which adds a stylish edge. Sachin & Babbi Bridal added an oversize bow to their ball gown style – waist bows made an appearance in Spring 2016 collections and the trend is set to continue into the new year.

Dots

2017 designers are going dotty over this one. While gemstones and sequins are the embellishment of choice for 2016, designers have incorporated lots of miniature dots in to next year’s collections.
