Bridal Scene Show #18 with hosts Holli Ehrlich and Robert Allen. Special Edition: Bridal Market Spring 2007 NYC Part 2

The votes are in, and it's unanimous.  The designers want you in a  wedding dress that reflects you and your sense of style.  You should be thrilled because show after show, collection after collection, runway after runway, were filled with one beautiful dress after another. Beading, lace, empire and belted, feminine, sexy and chic.  Wedding Podcast Network unveils coverage of Bridal Market in New York City heard nowhere else.  You are invited to a front row seat to hear the personal inspiration of the looks and styles for Spring 2007.

We hope you enjoyed Bridal Scene #17, Bridal Market Spring 2007 NYC Coverage Part 1.  Part 2 is a special 90 minute celebration of the hottest, most noted gown designers.  Join us as we go backstage and speak with more than a dozen key players in the wedding industry.  WPN had a chance to chat with highly accomplished wedding experts: Kathy Nenneker, Editor Los Angeles Weddings magazine, Sylvia Weinstock, wedding cake diva, Carley Roney, founder of The Knot and Antonia van der Meer, Editor in Chief of Modern Bride magazine.  Jessica Liebeskind, beauty correspondent, talks with WPN about the hair and makeup seen on the runway.

The storytelling begins with Justina McCaffrey's "Majestic" collection. Her dresses, created out of the finest silks, exude a gracefulness and classic elegance.  All of her designs carry a strong tie with Justina's love of ballet. 

Reem Acra's collection is about modernity and feminity inspired by Josephine Bonaparte.  Acra is known for her attention to detail, signature beaded embroideries and unique fabric combinations. 

Monique Lhuillier Bride is high fashion.  Sighted:  Hand tufting, re-embroidered lace, three quarter and long sleeves, full A-line skirts and pleated boleros. Colors:  Ivory, Pewter, Mushroom and Latte.  

Carmela Sutera introduced an elegant collection featuring the finest European fabrics.  The linen gowns with Venice lace were particularly fresh.  Colored satin sashes, pleated waistbands, long sleeves, colored ribbon accents were a few of the details noticed on the runway. 

Anne Barge's love and appreciation of classic, timeless elegance is reflected in her latest bridal collection.  Ice blue silk satin, cotton pique,  Paris brooches, hand beading, fine feathers, black silk flowers, black velvet band and crystal cut sequins accented with Swarovski crystals were just some of the beautiful adornments seen.

Mark Badgley & James Mischka, celebrity designers, are masters of bead, lace and red carpet glamour.  The Badgley Mischka signature style is simple, streamlined and thoroughly elegant, luxurious detail.  Sexy, Retro Silhouettes.  Shoes and handbags also designed by Badgley Mischka.

Feminine glamour and modern styles by Amsale, Christos and Kenneth Pool follow.  Scoop: Project Runway's Austin Scarlett caught the eye of judge Amsale Aberra and was offered the head design  position at Kenneth Poole, an Amsale division known for opulent, luxurious bridal and evening wear.

The PLATINUM for Priscilla of Boston Collection is for brides who prefer a more luxurious, dramatic gown.  Designs are created from elegant silk fabrics with hand-embroidered beading, crystal and threadwork. 

Venezuelan-born Angel Sanchez creates bridal gowns that are architectural and contemporary while still being feminine.  Sanchez represents the perspective of the international Latin-American style.  His mother was his first inspiration because of her taste and determination.

Pnina Tornai, leading designer in Israel, houses her collection exclusively at Kleinfeld Bridal in NYC.  Her signature corset design is created to have the perfect fit.  Her collection varies from classic with clean lines and details to sophisticated hand embroidered ballgowns.  The finale wowed us:  Noir - black wedding gown.

Vera Wang celebrates the individuality and spirit of modern young women.  Waists are loose and free, or wrapped in sashes of tulle or linen, sequin, snakeskin and stones.  Element of style:  extravagant bows, ties and watteaus create a sense of volume, movement and ornamentation.  Her collection of dresses express freedom, elegance, and ease.

We hope you enjoyed walking down the runway with us.
