Last Saturday was the start of the 2013 New York Bridal market. Which according to attendees is showing off the reappearance of the ball gowns. It appears that lots of lace is in our future, and the modest panel is making a resurgence, call me old fashioned, but I love the lace across the bodice. It’s so simple and sophisticated, perfect for us older brides! Oh but my favorite dress was by designer, Claire Pettibone. It is the most airy, roaring 20’s dress I’ve seen this season, just take a look at the detail on the back. All of her gowns remind me of a fairy tale outdoor wedding, so wispy.
