Trend Prediction : 3D Floral Applique at NYBFW

Oct 27, 2022 | Bridal Style

For the past few seasons we have seen more lace than our hearts can even handle. You know us, we LOVE a textured gown, but wanna know what we love even more? 3D applique! The 3D nature of lace and floral applique was the fabric of NYBFW this year! We saw off the shoulder sleeves, we saw floral gloves and for what it's worth we saw an epic train with 3D florals trailing all the way down. Here for it all...

When you think of wedding dresses, you usually think of gowns made of crepe, lace, chiffon, silk, tulle, and taffeta. However, creativity was at the forefront this season and designers presented elevated fabrics that go the extra mile. Collections from Watters and Ines di Santo had dresses made of 3D textural applique and lace that are meant for the bride adding that extra level of drama to their dress. Scroll on for our faves from the 2023 Bridal Week...

If you're opting to embrace the detachable sleeves trend, then this Watters dress above is a perfect choice. Thanks to the intricate 3D floral appliques scattered over the entirety of the gown, this look is the definition of light and airy. We also give it bonus points for the puff sleeves and delicate sweetheart neckline.
