just because a runway presentation is dubbed ready-to-wear, doesn't mean it can't be used as major wedding-dress inspo! Which is exactly why the Fall 2017 New York Fashion Week runways are giving us all sorts of bridal vibes. From Marchesa's light-as-air silk stunners to a gorgeous jumpsuit and silver-embellished feather-adorned gown, there's plenty of looks to covet for your big day.
Alongside enviably stylish street wears, for the Fall 2017 runways, designers showed dresses that could easily translate to the aisle. Layers were a major component, with many creating tiered, asymmetrical skirts or peplums. Necklines, just like in bridal, were another glorious play on the runways: Deep V's, frilly high necks, and swoon-worthy off-the-shoulder necklines enhanced their gown's silhouette.
Some of the designers that we loved were bridal standbys, like Marchesa, Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta and Naeem Khan, while others like Proenza Schouler, Rosie Assoulin and Brandon Maxwell, pleasantly surprised us with their wedding-worthy wears. Regardless, this array of stunning designs should prove one thing: Your wedding-day look is what you make it, and you can draw inspiration and find your gown anywhere!
