Bridal wear is typically during the spring and several different designers present their bridal lines. Bridal wear is a separate category for fashion weeks so it is not always as popular as couture or ready-to-wear. Elie Saab is a very popular bridal designer brand as well as Oscar de la Renta. For Oscar de la Renta, the designer Peter Copping is more interested in making different designs for any type of woman. Being able to make designs for several different personalities and interest types is immensely important for everyday outfits but especially for a bride’s wedding dress. Most of his bridal dresses for the most recent wedding collection were ivory column gowns in silk faille. The dresses had pearls scattered as well as some having tulle, feathers, and flowers embellished on the dresses. The short dresses seemed very modern and almost fun but most of the dresses are very simplistic and elegant.
Elie Saab seemed to have recently gotten more popular in 2014 as his dresses were very elegant with soft and vibrant colors seeming like they should be worn on every runway. He had a lot of sheer sleeves and almost a youthful touch to the dresses for his spring 2017 bridal show. Only a few of the dresses were full and classy look to them but still managed to look unique by focusing on the shoulders or even having a slit down the middle. Having it cinched at the waistline with a belt added a more youthful touch to the dresses as well.
