New York Luxury Bridal Fashion Week runs Wednesday through Friday with a hybrid schedule of in-person shows, presentations and in-market appointments, as well as virtual collection debuts, for the 2023 season.
“Each designer will decide and communicate what their specific plans will be,” the Bridal Council said of the April market, which is shaping up to be a robust timeline to match the surge in weddings following the pandemic. “The demand is there from brides. This year is expected to be the highest number of weddings since 1984,” said Michelle Iacovelli, executive director of the council.
For the fourth season, The Bridal Council continues its partnership with Pullquest to present the 2023 collections on The Bridal Council x Pullquest digital showroom platform. The site will display the schedule of presentations online and continue to serve as a digital marketing tool and sales platform with collection images and videos, downloadable press kits and more for six months after the Luxury Bridal Fashion Week.
“The wonderful thing is that more than 13 countries will be represented by designers traveling to New York, the bridal capital,” Iacovelli told WWD. “What’s interesting is that even though the collections will be presented digitally, the brands will still be in New York to make market appointments, it’s a real hybrid.”
Global designers to be featured on The Bridal Council x Pullquest platform include Amsale, Anne Barge, Dana Harel, Ines Di Santo, Jesus Peiro, Kaviar Gauche, Lea-Ann Belter, Madeline Gardner, Maria Elena Headpieces, Mira Zwillinger, Naeem Khan , Neta Dover, Peter Langner, Romona Keveza, Sachin and Babi and Sareh Nouri.
In addition to those featured on PullQuest, CFDA’s New York Luxury Bridal Fashion Week calendar, created in collaboration with The Bridal Council, is jam-packed with in-person and digital bridal events Wednesday through Friday.
