Much like with regular fashion weeks, bridal fashion weeks take place twice yearly all over the world. New York Bridal Fashion Week has got to be one of the best, and we were so thrilled to attend the Fall 2024 presentations. From catwalk shows to private viewings, drinks receptions to brand-new boutique openings, we certainly got our steps in!
Our highlights included Mark Ingram’s new atelier opening on Madison Avenue, Horizon Bridal – a beautiful, bijou event held in a stunning warehouse space packed with independent designers – and NYC natives Honor Bridal who dazzled us with their beautiful custom crafted fabrics and delicate details.
Located in the heart of New York’s iconic East Village, the neighbourhood where rock ‘n’ roll, renegade art, LGBTQ+ activism and generations of immigrants all merged to give birth to American counterculture. Moxy embraces the neighbourhood’s rebellious spirit, while meeting the demands of today’s travellers – all at an affordable price. Rates from $179 (US) per night, book at moxyeastvillage.com.
New York is known for its fantastic shopping, but if you’re looking for something more witchy, head to Enchantments. New York City’s oldest occult store is located on Avenue B in the Alphabet City and offers a variety of goods including custom-carved candles, incense and books.
Do: Summit at One Vanderbilt
SUMMIT One Vanderbilt is a completely new take on an observation deck. As well as the magnificent views of NYC, there are five multi-sensory experiences occupying the top three floors of Midtown Manhattan’s tallest commercial skyscraper. From a spectacular mirrored space spread over two floors, to floating orbs that change colour in tune with a light show at night, all topped off with transparent glass-enclosed ledges offering sweeping views over 1,000 feet from the city streets below. Tickets from £38 are available via attractiontickets.com.
After being in the industry for over 15 years, and always enviously watching from afar, it was a dream come true to finally make it to New York. Thank you too all the brands and designers who invited us to their shows, presentations, previews and parties. I can’t wait to see some of our favourite pieces on real brides in the coming years, and of course, to see what everybody comes up with next!
