Crop top wedding dresses new trend for 2015

A host of designers have featured crop top wedding dresses as part of their Spring/Summer 2015 bridal collections at New York Bridal Week.

The edgy dresses, which are a far cry away from traditional princess-like gowns, have been seen in the collections of big names such as Vera Wang as well as Canada-based brand Theia.

Wang’s dress included a tulle skirt matched with a tight crop top, whilst the Theia gown featured a high-necked lace top paired with a satin skirt. As well as the two-piece dress, Wang’s new bridal collection also contained many far-from-traditional touches, such as floral overlays and ballgown skirts.

Talking about her latest collection, Wang said she had the modern woman in mind. She told “It was meant to be dreamy and edgy, because girls  today are edgy.”

The designer continued: “I don’t think of bridal as a niche. Hopefully, people will realise that these dresses can be worn for anything. They just happen to be white.”

Meanwhile other designers at the event took a much more conventional approach to their lines. This included Oscar De La Renta, who presented a collection which was full of classic and highly-embellished gowns, according to Jenny Packham also went for a mythical and romantic collection of dresses for her new bridal collection.
