‘Arabesque’ Fall 2018 Bridal Collection
“Let me be the one that dances through your dreams”
Ivy & Aster presented its latest collection to press and buyers from around the globe during New York Bridal Fashion Week at 287 Gallery located in the heart of Chelsea.
Inspired by the romance and fluidity of all things ballet, Ivy&Aster brought their
Fall 2018 collection to life.
“While remaining true to our brand’s aesthetic, we envisioned what many girls dream to be when they are young; a ballerina. I took ballet for many years and still to this day am awestruck by a ballerina’s beauty and grace. We then incorporated that feeling and quality into our bridal dresses. Known for our light, airy fabrics and romantic quality, we wanted to expand on the ballet attire, costuming and dance and interpret them into wearable dresses for weddings. Every woman should be comfortable on her wedding day and enjoy dancing the night away so we felt it was a natural source of inspiration to draw from for this collection”.
Ivy & Aster presented models in flowing silks, soft nets, lace and tulle accented by unique embroideries and intricate, delicate details.
There is even a cashmere wrap sweater that could easily be straight from a dancer’s wardrobe. The colors are all very soft ballet pink, ivory and grey tones.
Skirts are feminine and flowing allowing for movement.
The bodices are fitted and structured in a way that reflects traditional ballet costuming.
Accessories accent just the right points whether it is a sash to highlight a waistline or a caplet to drape over the shoulders.
All pieces in the collection speak to the romance and beauty of a modern day ballerina.
Ivy & Aster dreams up gowns and dresses for every bride’s personal journey to her wedding day.
With its ever-changing creative view on bridal Ivy & Aster always pulls from the love of weddings, current trends, and the latest fabrics and embellishments.
The collection is also created with an awareness of budget as the wedding dresses retail from $1500-3500 making them affordable and not just aspirational.
Ivy & Aster was joined in presentation again this year with Heather Wells of Heart of Gold Designs.
Heather‘s pieces always add the perfect crowing touch to the looks Ivy & Aster present so it was only natural to join forces again for this showing.
