My name is Lucia Aguiar, I am a fashion designer and have been in the fashion industry for over 19 years. I work in New York as a head designer for a Couture company. I want to bring our readers a taste of all the new trends and what’s hot right off the runway for Spring 2016. Justin Alexander is one of the leaders in the bridal industry, they won the debbie award for the best manufacture of the year. This Spring 2016 collection that they launched has a very vintage touch with a lot of elegant lace as well with beautiful beading.
Peekaboo panels, sheer slits and all over illusion dominated the Fall of 2016 bridal runways. Most of the standouts showed off long legs and toned arms without feeling too bare for bridal.
Strategically placed tulle, lace and gossamer mesh made all-covered up styles feel weightless, and see through skirts are the best way to show off killer heels.
There should be no shock here but yes you can wear black with your white gown. Opting for an eternally chic black evening shoe, clutch, a black diamond necklace or modern pair of drops ensures you’ll be sporting your bridal accessories long after your wedding day.
SPANISH INSPIRED STYLE
Tiered skirts, dramatic flamenco-esque skirts, vibrantly colored hair flowers and macramé lacework were only some of the Spanish influences on the Fall 2016 bridal collections.
Long lace sleeves and mantilla veils were among some of our favorite ways this inspiration appeared, and a brides ability to embrace the look in small or large doses- from a single bold bloom in her hair to an all-over corded lace look- put this trend on our short list.
Quirky, playful accessories like petite crystal tiaras and gilded crowns are a contemporary upgrade on the dated tiaras of the 80’s. While these head pieces are a sweet alternative or accompaniment to a veil, they also make for a super-luxe add-on when styling your second look for the reception or after party.
As we enter the Spring of 2016, I hope this blog could give the readers an inspiration to help plan their future weddings. Any little detail or touch could go a long way and make a statement! Fashion is truly my passion, I look forward on bringing the best right off the runways for you every season.
