All eyes were on the bride in New York last week with designers showcasing their latest collections and setting the trends for leading ladies across the globe at New York Bridal Fashion Week (Fall 2019).

Femininity has never been more celebrated than in these collections which celebrate each bride's strength of spirit and sense of style. From reinterpretations of classic shapes to daring designs for the fearless bride, the runways were filled with options in wedding dresses and outfits. We take a closer look at some of the collections previewed...

Gracy Accad

Drawing inspiration from the Greek muses - The Nine Goddesses, Gracy Accad's Fall 2019 collection celebrates female empowerment. Re-embroidered laces, frothy gowns featuring Italian tulle and silk taffeta add a sense of romance and reimagined feminism.

Inbal Dror

The Mediterranean Sea's "beaches, freedom and lightness" inspired Inbal Dror to create the 2019 Capri collection. Offering a diverse array of styles, the collection presents a daring element with thigh-high splits, plunging necklines and low backs. Illusion silhouettes and sheer fabrics also serve to celebrate the female form.

Berta

Always a showstopper, Berta Baliti presented not one, not two, but three new bridal collections. While 'MUSE by Berta' puts romance centre stage with soft shoulder details and hints of lace, 'Athens' breaks traditions in a sensational blend of tulle, silk, chiffon and illusion lace. The third collection, 'Privee', revisits Berta's roots with timeless shapes and the designer's signature breath-taking style.

Rita Vinieris

With an emphasis on individuality and encouraging brides to be themselves, the Rita Vinieris Fall/Winter 2019 collection embraces the movements and finishes of luxurious silks, crepes, organidies and laces. Working in conjunction with Project Semicolon - a non-profit organisation dedicated to supporting those who struggle with mental illness, addiction and self-injury, a percentage of every Rita Vinieris piece sold during 2019 up to $25,000 will be donated directly to the project.

Ines Di Santo

Toying with colour, structure and embroidery, the Fairytale Collection from Ines Di Santo is inspired by the art of storytelling in Norweigan fairy tale, East of the Sun; West of the Moon. Ines Di Santo has also launched her first jewellery collection inspired by the Fairytale Collection, which features pavé stones, antique glass flowers and birds freed from their cages on a range of exquisite rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Crystal-heeled shoes suppled by Baccarat.

Lee Petra Grebenau

Reinventing popular styles seen throughout 2018, Lee Petra Grebenau's latest collection offers gowns to satisfy various bridal styles. The designer comments: “The collection is a celebration of romance and femininity. I used several variations of lace, hand-embroidered details, extraordinary intricate beaded compositions and exquisite 3D flowers. I created a variety of leather belts that bring sophistication and add a little edge to complete each look.”
