The bridal industry often looks to the red carpets and celebrity fashion for inspiration in creating new, dynamic fashions. The recent 2011 Emmyâs red carpet is an example of such a source. House of Bridesâ 6 salons are showcasing many wedding dresses with these popular trends. Industry Consultant Dale Buziecki states, "House of Brides watches red carpet events and celebrity fashion to be on que with what our customers want."
Designer Mon Cheri exemplifies Lace in its style Dakota. The Tulle and Lace gown has a curved neckline and ruched bodice with hand-beaded Swarovski crystal Lace appliquÃ©s and flower detail. More recent Lace styles have taken a more modern interpretation with Lace appliquÃ©s and accents coupled with more structured fabrics like Taffeta, Tulle and Silk Satins.
Designer Mon Cheri Bridals highlights the ruching trend in style Leighton. The wedding gown has a ruched midriff that is lightly draped through the dropped waistline. Ruching has dominated red carpets over the past few fashion seasons. The 2011 take is asymmetrical ruching, which amplifies ruchingâs figure-flattering character.
Designer Mon Cheri Bridals accentuates metallic embellishments with style Cambria. With hand-beaded jeweled detail and sheen Taffeta, this bridal gown has been in demand at the salons. Metallic embellishments are a more recent trend that has carried over from red carpets to bridal gown collections. Heavy beading, rhinestones and sequins are emphasized in many 2011 bridal gowns.
Designer Sophia Tolli Bridals features a one shoulder wedding dress in style Sukey. This red carpet trend lends from Grecian styling and adds to its sophisticated flare.
The salonâs buyers noted these trends are continuing into Spring 2012 collections and predict their ongoing popularity in next yearâs Fall season.
Samples and their availability vary online and at the salons.
