The new norm has forever transformed the modern bride. From micro weddings on the floral covered front stoops of New York City brownstone’s to weddings on Zoom, the Covid-19 pandemic has pivoted the entire wedding industry including bridal fashion. Designers are tapping into the energy from this moment in fashion history and translating it into the beautiful designs that we see in their collections.
The traditional ball gown by no means will become a thing of the past, even as Covid lockdowns begin to ease, the collective sigh of relief that soon will be felt undoubtedly will translate into the most exuberant dresses which I support wholeheartedly. However, a NEW bride is coming out of the pandemic. This bride doesn’t feel forced to wear a silhouette that no longer speaks to her, yet she still wants to feel romantic and elegant and desires an alternative silhouette that radiates confidence. This new bride has decided to wear a new badge of honor which is not relegated to only city hall ceremonies but grand venues such as luxurious hotel ballrooms and cathedral-style churches.
From the chic interchangeable pieces of Laury Bride to the cool “It Girl” dresses of Viktor & Rolf and the structured glamour of Ralph & Russo, these distinctive designs go straight the spirit of the wearer.
