One fashion designer took some of his runway designs outside the tents and into the bridal showrooms as that industry gears up for its own fashion week. NY1's Jessica Abo filed the following report.
Fashion designer Zac Posen wants to help those who just said yes find the perfect dress
“Zac Posen is known for his figure flattering collections. A lot of boning and corseting detail. We see this a lot on celebrities that he dresses and on the red carpet and what's really great is that now his style is able to parallel that in his wedding collection,” said Sara Musillo, assistant manager of David’s Bridal.
Under the Truly Zac Posen label, there are seven bridal gowns available exclusively at David's Bridal that range from $850 to $1,350.
There's also a line of special occasion dresses, all priced under $225.
“We're really excited that we'll be able to share all of his designs throughout the year as the collection will be changing and we'll be able to take advantage of all of his design greatness,” said Musillo.
At Kleinfeld, the team is getting ready to attend Bridal Fashion Week to check out what designers are proposing for next season.
“We look for new designers, new talent, hopefully brand new people that we develop. We also look for the tried and blue designers. What the new trends are going to be and how they're going to excite our brides in the future,” said Mara Urshel, co-owner of Kleinfeld.
What’s hot right now?
“The dresses are much more revealing. We have illusion backs, illusion fronts, long sleeves sometimes and in some weddings, there's a major theme there will be red or color accents on belts and other expressions of their favorite color,” said Urshel.
And once you've walked down the aisle if you need help changing your name, Kleinfeld can help so you don't get ruffled with the process.
“It's an easy process where they go online, it takes about two to three minutes to fill out our easy form we call it, there's never any sensitive information that's taken from the client. And in three to five days they get a full service packet and they can send everything in the mail to start the process of changing their name,” said co-founder of Kleinfeld Name Change, Jake Wolff.
And if you're at the point where your family is growing, Urshel says the next thing up her sleeve is clothing for kids.
