There aren't a whole lot of things better in this world than a beautifully constructed and architectural gown from NYC designer Zac Posen — except, of course a beautifully constructed and architectural gown from NYC designer Zac Posen for less... Which is where Zac Posen's collaboration with David's Bridal, the ever-popular event dress chain, comes in. Zac Posen and David's Bridal just showed their 2016 spring/summer season as a part of New York Bridal Fashion Week, and their dresses did not disappoint.
All 14 dresses in the collection had Posen's signature flair, from the intricately pleated bodices, to the well-fitted sheath silhouettes, to the ultra-dramatic voluminous skirts. Heck, there was even a little more drama in the newest collection: This year's offering of bridal gowns actually included several black dresses — according to WWD, Posen himself said, "This is for the New York bride in black ... That’s the dress I would wear." — as well as one siren-red Grecian number and a fuchsia strapless fishtail gown.
That said, from the classic white numbers to the ultra-modern black sheath dresses and statement-y floral ball gowns, all items in the collection are pretty much to die for. So let's go salivate over the 9 most beautiful dresses, shall we?
8. The Bride Wore Black
Very, very classic. The lace overlay on the gown on the right is beautifully intricate, and the gown on the left is simple yet supremely chic.
5, 6 and 7. Black, White and Red All Over
Look at all of that beautiful draping!
4. The Feathered Number
Ostrich feathers + wedding dresses? A truly winning combination.
3. The Floral Ball Gown
Would you wear something like this down the aisle? Even the most traditional bride might find the dramatic combination of print and silhouette hard to resist.
2. The Dramatic Fishtail
That is a LOT of skirt.
1. The Ultra-Romantic Gown
Even MORE skirt.
Which one would you wear? I'm partial to the black floral dress with the Victorian period drama-worthy voluminous skirt, and the strappy white v-neck ball gown.
