On Sunday, October 8, I attended the Spring Casablanca Bridal 2018 Collection Runway Presentation at the Altman Building in NYC, in celebration of the brand’s 20th anniversary, or as Kevin Lu, CEO & Founder of Casablanca bridal put it, “20 years of beautiful brides, in beautiful dresses, sharing beautiful love stories.”
Before the show began, guests were invited to immerse themselves in a museum-style display containing some of the brand’s best-selling styles and imagery from the past 20 years. The runway show followed, featuring collections from Casablanca Bridal, Beloved Bridal and Amare Couture.
Bridal shows are fun to attend, but you really never know what to expect – you will either feel that the designs are unoriginal or you’re completely blown away. Thankfully, this show was the latter. As soon as the first gown softly emerged, the audience knew their eyes would be treated to a spectacular show of some of the best bridal designs in the industry. Notably, the line includes something for every discerning bride. There were figure-hugging lace dresses, which contrasted sharply against its sister gowns that featured billowing skirts, reminiscent of soft clouds. Some of my favorite pieces were adorned with breathtaking, intricate beading that sparkled like twinkling stars as the models walked down the runway. I spent most of the show on the edge of my seat, excited with anticipation of what would come next and equally amazed as each beautiful gown that surfaced.
Established in 1997, Casablanca Bridal’s gowns are made to order, so each bride is sure to have a piece that is unique for her special day. To see some of my favorite pieces from the show, browse the gallery below.
