Lela Rose’s Presentation in the Park

We are stepping into the Elizabeth Street Garden in New York today to view Lela Rose’s Fall 2018 bridal collection.  In a stroke of genius she invited guests into the garden for a presentation in lieu of a traditional runway show for NYFW… This way guests get to view the gowns from every angle and get up close and personal to see all of the gorgeous details.

One thing that noticeably sticks out to me is that Lela always incorporates high fashion alternatives to traditional gowns. I love love love the pant ensemble here! And two piece options are featured as well- perfection!

Lela says the inspiration behind this collection was seeing traditional silhouettes updates for the modern bride. While there are plenty of lovely strapless gowns out there, I prefer sleeves and other alternatives, like this off the shoulder number. And this delicate lace design is the perfect for a feminine bride wanting a sophisticated take on the sheer trend.

Lela’s Southern sensibility shines through the presentation… Guests enjoy Callie’s Charleston ham biscuits (a big favorite of ours!) and  “Sweeties” .. and a sketch artist onsite offers a special touch.  And don’t forget the “bouquet bar” as seen below.

Lela walks her “brides” out of the park making sure the gowns stay bridal white, something we are all too familiar with… We thank Lela for sharing this glimpse of her Fall 2018 Bridal presentation with us…
