Attending a Reem Acra fashion show is always a special treat. Before I enter her atelier, I always ask myself, “I wonder what Reem has up her sleeve this season?” And as always, she consistently blows me away with her impeccable styling, her selection of music and her overall inspiration that you can see being carried out through every collection. Without further ado, the Reem Acra Spring/Summer 2013 bridal collection filmed by Loudbyte Cinematography!

One of the most talked about collections this season, the Vera Wang’s Spring/Summer 2013 Bridal Collection entitled “Mei Meng” was a vision in red. “Mei Meng” means “beautiful dream” and that’s exactly what I experienced when watching this collection hit the runway. Vera Wang truly outdid herself this season with not even one white gown being shown in her line. Colors from dahlia to scarlet, to crimson and vermillion, this collection defined the true meaning of love with its boldy romantic yet seductive and sexy looks.

Oscar de la Renta’s Spring/Summer 2013 Bridal Collection was truly a treat for those who got to witness it first hand. A collection filled with luscious pastel colors, intricate laces and styled beautifully to the 9’s, this collection was an honor to view. Mr. de la Renta also debuted a few “surprises” in the show. Can you tell what it is? Hint, think “mini de la Renta…”
Designer Rita Vinieris explored the juxtaposition of classicism and modernism for her SS2013 Rivini couture bridal gown collection. A magical collection that was inspired by a Rodney Smith photograph of a ballerina dancing alongside an indoor pool, Rivini utilized soft textures (tulle, organzas and laces) and an airy color palette of ivories, nudes and copper tones. From the hair to makeup to the overall styling of each look, Loudbyte Cinematography did a phenomenal job capturing the exquisite details incorporated in Rivini’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection!
Flash back to Sunday morning, April 15th, 9AM at the Jumeirah Essex House in Manhattan. It was a glorious sunny morning and I remember walking down Central Park South so giddy with excitement to see what my dear friend Ines Di Santo has her up sleeve for the upcoming season. Ines’ collections always blow me away. She puts her heart and soul into every gown she creates and it’s always an honor to sit front row at her show and witness first hand the magic that her brand embodies. Here is the debut of the Fall/Winter 2012 couture bridal and evening collection by Ines Di Santo filmed by Loudbyte Cinematography!
When our team attends the NYC Couture Bridal Market every April and October, it is a whirlwind of excitement and a pure adrenaline rush. For those of you who aren’t familiar with what “Bridal Market” is, it is like the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week of the bridal world happening twice a year in NYC where the worlds most talented couture bridal designers debut their new collections to buyers and press. Also knows as “Bridal Fashion Week” the shows happen at various locations all over Manhattan, so needless to say it is a lot of hopping in and out of a car every hour on the hour, racing to get to the next runway. It is quite the media frenzy and I’m sure my fellow editors can agree!
Each market, I have the pleasure to work with some amazing talent that capture the shots on the catwalks for us. For the past 7 years, Mike Colon Photographers has been photographing our runways that you can see in our magazine editorials and on our websites. It is quite the strenuous job, and we sincerely appreciate Mike Colon Photographers flying in from California to cover this for us!
This past April, we had the pleasure to welcome some new members to our Bridal Market team, Loudbyte Cinematography! With gear in hand, husband and wife team Steve Gribben and Ton-Essa La’Rocque flew in from the Windy City to cover the bridal fashion shows and created amazing fashion films for us which we are delighted to finally debut. Loudbyte is truly revolutionizing the world of cinematography and we can’t thank you enough for all your hard work during market!
We are excited to share the first fashion film by Loudbyte Cinematography, the Spring/Summer 2013 Romona Keveza Collection, the Spring/Summer 2013 Legends by Romona Keveza Collection and the Fall/Winter 2012 Romona Keveza Luxe Evening Collection. Enjoy!
