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
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.
