SAVANNAH MILLER Spring 2020 Collection

“1930s Hollywood is my signature starting point for every collection. The original bohemians of the 1930s exuded timeless and effortless elegance. They were pioneers of a new and brave way to dress, something that I have tried to capture with bold and unusual details.” —-Savannah Miller

The original bohemians of the 1930’s were timeless and walked with effortless elegance. They were pioneers of a new and brave way to dress. This collection brides will see flowy, classic and modern assortments.

Inspiration was drawn from deconstructed details. Visible boning and shredded chiffon embroideries interspersed with pearls in various sizes and hues add couture level finish to the gowns.

The Savannah Miller bride is graceful and cool synonymously. She knows what she wants to wear and she wears it with refined confidence.

Gorgeous Black Models at NYC Bridal Market Week

When I first started covering the bridal market, I was so excited about the opportunity to be introduced to a different world besides fashion. My first job was for a  prominent black owned fashion and lifestyle magazine. When I gave my editor  my wrap up story,I was asked “where are the black models that we can post”.  I was only able to give five images. Being so excited about attending  bridal market, I didn’t even notice the lack of diversity. I was just happy to see beautiful gowns. This season, I was thrilled to see different shades showcasing stunning gowns and high-five to the designers that hired them.

The bridal industry is for everyone, as we have brides all over the world who buy magazines and visit the websites to get inspirations. It is important to have  representation on the runways and advertisement.  I am usually not one to cover issues and only focus on fashion but I was really delighted to see women who look like me walk proudly down the runway with  beautiful gowns.  Looking forward to October Market to see more.
