New York bridal fashion: Temperley, Badgley Mischka, Marchesa

Posted on


The London-based fashion designer’s ‘Imogen Collection’ served up a bridal range featuring plenty of handworked lace and embroidery inspired by a bygone era. Key features included cascading trains over fitted underskirts and the brand’s first mini-dress style, designed for brides who want to change into a shorter look at some point on the big day. Accessories options stuck to the classics with veils, floral headdresses, and belts. 

Badgley Mischka

Mark Badgley and James Mischka provided plenty of shoulderless and halterneck gowns, embroidery and quilted details in relief. Bows on the backs of dresses. Cutaway details on torsos covered with sheer silk (also used for crystal-embellished shrug jackets). Other options included empress-line shapes, and other fitted torsos with ruffles kicking out at the knee. This season’s veil came as a wrap of mesh netting around the models’ heads. 


The Marchesa duo Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig provided plenty of variety with their latest bridalwear. Colors ranged from a soft champagne to an ice white, while the gamut of shapes shifted from short above the knee lengths, to flowing trains. Detail highlights included the exquisite crystal embroidery and the assured use of ruffles. Most excitingly of all, many of the shapes weren’t dresses at all but carefully layered separates that can be worn in different ways.
