Jeremy Chou has photographed my gowns many times, and the results are always stunning, so when he called to say he wanted to put an editorial together, I sent him these still-in-the-works gowns. This is just the beginning...the gown above has an updated detail to look out for too! Although this iridescent sequined embroidery with her graceful floral neckline is beautiful as is, I had a bride recently visit us at our salon who sparked an idea that was perfect for this dress! When I create each gown, things often evolve and change as the collection takes shape. As the launch date approaches, it's a balance of planning all the details while still remaining open to inspiration and breakthroughs...kind of like planning a wedding, right?! My new collection will make its debut at NY Bridal Fashion Week in just a few days. Salon buyers from around the world, and the fashion and bridal press attend this to-the-trade event. It's been 3 years since we showed in-person in NY, and I am so excited to be back! In some ways it was good to have some time away, time to rest, to reassess, to find my muse once again. I'm relishing in the art of creation, and I can't wait to share it all with you soon. For you brides-to-be, these dresses will begin arriving in salons early next year, and will adorn our brides for weddings in the summer and fall of 2023.
