Designer Watch- Nurit Hen Fall 2017 collection

Bridal Market just ended in New  York City and it was a week full of gowns, gowns, gowns and more gowns.  It was great to preview the upcoming Fall 2017 collections. This week we will focus on some of new designers who are doing things differently.

Brides, be on the look out for the trunk shows…

Nurit Hen is an Isareli Designer who is making a name for herself in the United States.  The gowns are an art creation that drapes the body like a glove. Each dress is beautifully beaded and well constructed with luxurious fabrics and lace. With names like Galiah Lahav, Inbal Dror and Berta who are making an impact in the market, we now have another option to add to the list. Let us take a look at the stunning looks that grace the runway during New York Bridal Market.

Black History Style File- Ann Lowe Influential Designer

Ann Lowe made history in 1953 when she designed a wedding gown for former the first lady.

Ann Lowe was an American fashion designer and the first African American to become a noted fashion designer. Lowe’s one-of-a-kind designs were a favorite among socialites from the 1920s to the 1960s. In 1953, she designed the ivory silk taffeta wedding dress worn by Jackie Kennedy.

In 1950, Lowe opened a salon in New York city on  Lexington Avenue where she created one of a kind pieces for high society women. So excited to be highlighting Ann Lowe as she opened doors for many designers today.
