We’re back with more of our Bridal Market coverage — I hope you’re ready for some serious fashion!
Day two kicked off with the dramatic couture collection from Ines DiSanto. Her collection featured lots of lace and intricate beadwork. My favorite gown was “Glory,” with its Italian lace and sweetheart neckline. Plus, seeing it up close made me love it even more! After the show we were escorted backstage to meet the chic Ms. Ines, and we totally did a double-cheek kiss! I felt so fancy!
We then headed to The Intercontinental Hotel where Whitney found her own room – literally! We were escorted to the front row for the Maggie Sottero show where we saw ruffles, ruffles and more ruffles. Plus, a great selection of removable black accent belts.
I feel so New York in the taxi photo above. I think I might have even hailed this one!
Next we went to the Modern Trousseau showroom. Callie and her team could not have been more welcoming! I fawned over the Thai silk and chantilly lace she used on her gowns. The dresses were SO sweet and Southern I must have died about 50 times. We even gave them a special preview of V4! Keep an eye out Nashville ladies, the Modern Trousseau girls will be moving into town early next year.
We were so thrilled to see dear friend and SW favorite Ms. Ashley Baber on our way to the Anne Barge show! Speaking of Anne Barge, this lady never disappoints! Her collection was classic and oh-so-Southern with a great pop of gold in the finale! Check out that veil!
After the show we had to stop and chat with V2 cover model Adair. She told us she recently got married in Napa and guess who she wore… Anne Barge, of course! She is just so sweet and we couldn’t be happier for her!
All these lovely images are courtesy of the super-talented (and Southern I might add) Mr. Trent Bailey.
I sure hope you’re enjoying our Bridal Market coverage! My partner in crime Miss Whitney will be back in a few with more gowns to gawk over, so don’t go too far!
