Kim’s RecapKim spent the day at Pier 94! Yes, again. Remember, it’s the hub of Bridal Market. It was another whirlwind day of every imaginable type of fabric — tulle, chiffon, silk, and lace. She’s so excited to share her favorites like Leanne Marshall’s (Project Runway alum) illusion neckline and blush embroidered gowns, jeweled sashes from Sara Gabriel, edgy leather statement necklaces from Bloom Bazaar, and Donna Morgan bridesmaids dresses in every color of the rainbow. Their newest color? Candy Apple, similar to mint.

Leeor’s RecapLeeor’s recap includes some details that wowed her! Watters’ models strutted down the runway in illusion fingerless gloves with embellished crystals and gold filigree cuffed bracelets, and Claire Pettibone’s gowns featured flora and fauna embroidery on each back. Can you spot a butterfly or two intermixed?
