New York International Bridal Market Highlights...

Every year the best of the best get together for the New York International Bridal Market. This year, like past years, was an absolute pleasure and we are VERY excited for things to come here at The Left Bank! Seeing all the new lines was phenomenal and we cannot wait for all our new things to come in! Here is a recap of some of our favorite designers...

We can never get enough of Haute Bride. Tons of eye candy filled their sweets themed space which was brimming with gorgeous pieces that we could not resist. Our visit turned into a four page order so our showcases are sure to be sparkling!

Another Left Bank favorite is of course Sara Gabriel. More uber chic pieces continue to come out of Sara Gabriel's studio, some fun petite hats, couture veils, and amazing headpieces. We are hoping Sara will pay a personal visit to our Chicago brides at her trunk show February 18th and 19th.  Keeping our fingers crossed that she can make it!

Angela Nuran, the designer of the ultra comfortable wedding shoe line has created an exclusive shoe just for The Left Bank.  Aptly named the "Parisienne",  this shoe will be online and in store very soon.  We're very excited to have the opportunity to be the only store in the country carrying this shoe.

Of course we couldn't visit New York without visiting our favorite dress designers at Fancy New York! They are definitely up to some fun with great new wedding dress designs with their unique retro and vintage flair. We are very excited for the new line! Here is a sneak peak...

Fancy New York always have the best displays, this year the theme was an exotic luxe cruise...loved it!

In some other Left Bank news, we are very excited to announce that we will soon be carrying Elsa Corsi jewelry! We met Elsa last year at the show and can't wait to have some of her stunning pieces gracing our showcases. The Left Bank is also now the exclusive Chicago retailer of Tejani Jewelry. Their pretty pieces were hard to not fall in love with and their cuffs come in four different sizes! Small wrists will smile now that we found some fabulous cuffs that won't slide up and down your arm! We are very proud and honored to be welcoming some fantastic lines into our store!

Winding down the trip, The Knot hosted a fabulous party at the NY Public Library where we saw Ali Phillips, Chicago wedding planner extraordinaire! Also had the pleasure of meeting Katarina Bocci, who's stunning dress is one of her own gorgeous creations. Look for her upcoming reality TV series called Material Motives!

 A whirlwind trip to the Big Apple is never complete without a visit to the Shake Shack, Doughnut Planet, and grabbing a slice of NY pizza while heading to the airport! After a great trip we are very excited for upcoming events!
