Bridal Market Recap Part I
There's nothing like a trip to New York. It's the city of Carrie Bradshaw, of Fifth Avenue, of Fashion Week - and then, there's Bridal Market. Bridal Market is the Fashion Week of the bridal world. Twice a year, the industry, and the Chic Parisien team, descends on the city for a few days of non-stop appointments, runway shows, presentations and showroom visits. It's an overload of tulle, lace, beading, trends and all things wedding, but we aren't complaining; there's nothing better than spending time around beautiful things and we are so lucky to spend our work days surrounded by beautiful designer dreams.
We're happy to report that we're back in the store, as inspired as ever, and have brought with us all the trends that we'll see throughout the rest of 2015 and 2016.
We'll be sharing some of the hundreds of photos that we snapped over the course of the trip - seriously, we couldn't help ourselves, there was just so much beauty! But first, we wanted to talk about the big trend at Market: sexy dresses.
Over the past few years we've seen a swing towards a sexy wedding dress and we took note that it isn't stopping. Low back, unlined bodices and plunging necklines were some of the ways designers are vamping up the wedding gown.
