Rosie Assoulin’s collection at NYFW inspired a sense of feminine youthfulness, with bright colours absolutely stealing the show. But if you’re not inclined to walk down the aisle in a vibrant green, ruffled silk dress (another of our favourites!), then perhaps this sheer pink gown is more your thing. Featuring a graduated paint-spray design, this dress channels a playful vibe and would beautifully complement the barefoot bride who wishes to dance to night away.
For all the bohemian brides out there, Ulla Johnson’s latest collection will definitely speak your language. In an effort to channel the concept of transparency in the fashion industry, Johnson’s collection is centred around gauzy fabrics and airy silhouettes that you could just imagine being worn by a beach-y bride on her wedding day.

In the midst of a colourful collection of prints and patterns, this all-white ensemble caught our eye. The low back feature and draping detailing adds a feminine quality to this menswear inspired piece. An understated look to compliment a relaxed and minimal wedding.
There were flippy skirts and delicate florals galore. What stole our attention though was the reveal of two (we snuck in a bonus favourite to the list!) statement white pieces; a deep v-neck maxi and a Victorian inspired jumpsuit. Both garments feature voluminous shoulders and cinching details, capturing the brand’s quintessentially romantic aesthetic.
Bows and ruffles are a big thing this season, and this Delpozo number seems to capture just the right amount of ruffle (in all the right places) for a contemporary yet classic look. With asymmetrical detailing and a high neckline, this dress would pair nicely with a slick back pony or low bun.
A modern exploration of classic crochet, Simkhai’s latest collection features delicate lacework and dreamy hues of blush and cream. Again, asymmetry was a key design element this NYFW and is featured in this look to create an accent at the high-thigh to elongate the legs. The insert of body jewellery, worn on either shoulder, is a unique styling choice that lends itself to a beach-chic aesthetic.
Lovers of minimal design unite. The Olsen Twins have revealed another stunning collection of earthy pieces and baggy silhouettes. The rosy ensemble above is a favourite of ours – the addition of a geometrical corset (a notable trend at NYFW) adds a contemporary element to the ethereal look.
This micro-pleated, white column dress is a standout piece with a regal aesthetic – statuesque almost. In true J. Mendel style, the styling was also a win and dresses were accessorised with a fur shrug that would be ideal for weddings in the cooler months.
This feminine collection from ADEAM might just be every bridesmaid’s dream. In the mix were pastel hues and A-line silhouettes for a look that’s classic-meets-comfort. But one white dress in particular gave us some serious bridal inspiration. Teamed with a boxy, cropped blue jacket, this white midi dress cinched at the waist with ruching details, creating a sense of whimsy. Pair it with a pair of show stopping heels and spunky earrings for a unique bridal look.
The Hadid’s were there. Joan Smalls, and Karlie as well – all rocking this gorgeous collection of artistic colour blocking and low-v necklines. We were swooning however over the high-neck pieces, in particular the full length ivory gown worn by Ellen Rosa. Following the shape of the familiar turtle-neck tank, this pleated number belts in at the waist and graduates to a muted blue-grey tone at the hem. Ideal for a fall or winter wedding, this dress would pair nicely with a delicate shrug or jacket, where the high neckline remains the focus.
Substitute the NYFW runway for an ambient chapel and this slinky gown seems perfectly fitting. The Grecian silhouette is incredibly flattering and would allow for a great deal of comfort and movement as the bride makes her way down the aisle. We can envision this piece paired with long drop earrings and a simple hairstyle to balance the asymmetrical design of the dress.
A lookbook of urban sophistication, the Spring/Summer collection by Narciso Rodriguez was one of our NYFW favourites. The crocheted, long-sleeved number featured above strikes us as a contemporary homage to the timeless beauty – Jane Birkin. Its slimming design and comfortable silhouette creates a unique statement for the bride who wishes to injects a little ‘festival spirit’ into her wedding-day look.
