It’s been a couple weeks since our trip to New York City for bridal market, and now that we’ve finally caught our breath and recovered from walking all over the city we can finally sit down and tell you about our adventures!
Here we are first thing in the morning, about to hit the road for the long drive to the big city.
It was a long ride, but we made it! Once we checked in at the hotel we were itching to get into the city, so we hopped onto a train and headed straight the The Knot Show, where we checked out the designs by Justin Alexander and Lillian West.
We were so impressed by the new collections– they had great clean lines, new fabrics and gorgeous bead work. It was hard to choose which gowns we wanted most, but after some deliberation we selected a group of gowns we think our brides will love. After that we headed back to the hotel, but not before making a quick stop outside the one and only Kleinfeld Bridal.
The next day we were up bright and early, and well before our first appointment, so we decided to check out the new collection from Randy Fenoli. We knew his dresses would be beautiful, but we were still blown away by his designs.
We even had the chance to chat with Randy himself, and he indulged our request for a selfie!
Our next stop was across town, to the garment district to check out the new collections from Paula Varsalona and Antonio Gual for Tulle New York.
The quality of Paula’s work was, as usual, excellent! We loved seeing the silhouettes and fabrics she’s using (especially the floral prints!) and we’re really excited about the designs we’ve ordered for our brides.
Out final stop of the day was to Antonio Gual. It was the first time we’d visited him in New York, and we were so excited to be there for the launch of his Sarah Black Collection.
Antonio’s was the last stop of the day, so after a late dinner we made our way back to the hotel to get some rest and prepare for the journey home. Overall, it was a great weekend, and we feel we selected a really amazing set of gowns from the new collections to have in our stores. You’ll just have to stay tuned to find out when they’ll arrive!
