It’s official. We are in full on wedding dress heaven as we come off the high of an AMAZING weekend at Bridal Market 2011. We packed up our bags and headed to the land of New York City for a whirlwind of amazing fashion, out-of-this-world Designer meetings, catch-ups with fellow industry friends, a few celebrity sightings (Colin Cowie anyone?!?) and a whole lot more gorgeous gown gazing. I don’t think we’ll ever get enough of that part.

From the runways of Romona Keveza, Reem Acra, Watters, Rivini, Christos, Kenneth Pool, Amsale, Monique Lhuillier, Ines Di Santo, Anne Barge and Claire Pettibone to uber fun studio meet-ups with Badgley Mischka, Jenny Packham, Modern Trousseau and Lela Rose, this was a trip not to be forgotten and one that has our inner style-obsessed hearts all a flutter. Let us just say, the sleeved gown is making quite the gorgeous comeback.

We’re breaking it down piece by fabulous piece Backstage so be sure to head over and catch up on the weekend happenings. ¬†And all throughout the week we’ll be showcasing every single stunning Designer Collection we laid our adoring eyes on over on the SMP Facebook page. Stop by and catch a sneak-peek of all the amazingness being offered up in the new collections. It’s a full on fashion party and you never know, your future aisle style may just be waiting in the mix.
