Spring/Summer 2014 Bridal Fashion Week

By Yasmin Darwish

Dramatic ball gowns, airy tulle, traditional lace, and unconventional colors all walked down the aisle (fashion aisle that is) this past week in New York’s Spring/Summer 2014 Bridal Fashion Week. Here a few of the most note-worthy looks that will most likely make it from the runway to the wedding aisle.

Oscar De La Renta

The Spring/Summer 2014 show is a collection of gorgeously romantic and feminine gowns with a fairy tale feel. “Every woman dreams of that day,” mused Oscar de la Renta in his show notes. “You have to go the extra mile and fulfill that dream to make something that a woman will fall in love with.”

The collection incorporated interesting touches, such as gloves (a huge bridal trend for spring ’14), interesting hair ornaments, and the use of color, such as light blue and baby pink.
