Sarah Seven Embraces Elegance at NYFW: Bridal

Sarah Seven: “Springtime in Paris”

As soon as I stepped off the elevator for the Sarah Seven presentation with menu in hand, I was submerged in a world of natural beauty.

The sun burst its way in through the windows, to kiss the flower petals and rosy cheeks of the models. The lovely scent in the air could be attributed to the bevy of flowers in every open space of the room.

It seemed to have been a tea party for brides on their special day, coming together for a chat before their moment in these disarmingly simple, yet carefully designed gowns. The collection featured a range of styles all delicate and beautiful, catering to a bride focused on elegance and simplicity.

One key example of such was the new “extra casual” bride, donning a merino wool sweater over a laced maxi skirt.

On another model we observed a simple little number, but upon closer inspection found beautiful, carefully hand-sewn pearl embroidery on the bodice with a high slit skirt.

Tucked away behind a couple of the ladies was Sarah’s most powerful design, a gown modeled, we think, after what a Greek goddess would wear: tiered cap sleeves with a peek of lace to top an exaggerated skirt that still seemed to float on air.

All-in-all, the beautiful bouquet of models in the designs — adorned with an array of beautiful flowers and an air of ease — is just the way to draw in, and win, the hearts of the uncomplicated and elegant bride-to-be.
