This expo is one of the largest bridal in the region that features a stunning selection of dresses and suits for the 2020 spring and summer seasons from various designers such as Ines Di Santo, Vera Wang, Reem Acra, Phuong My and Amsale. This fashion show had something for just about everyone. Here are just a few dresses that were seen during the expo.

Phuong My

Trang Phung My, a Vietnamese fashion designer, launched her first bridal collection for Spring 2020. She experimented with a variety of dresses, pants and color to challenge the traditional style. In a brief interview, she mentioned that weddings, don't always have to be white. "Red is one of the most popular colors for bridal in Asia," Phuong My said. "A little color doesn't hurt anyone."

Ines Di Santo

Ines Di Santo, an Italian designer, also showed her collection in New York. Some of her inspirations for this collection were fairytales, clouds, dreams and Ophelia. "The dress is more than a dress. It's a personality" Di Santo said. She also experimented on patterned and colored bridal gowns. "Color is very important for me. Different patterns, different silhouettes, describe who we are. I love color. Being Italian, we love color."

This was Amsale's second bridal show after the death of their founder Amsale Aberra. Now, Amsale is under the direction of her successor Margo LaFontaine. This company unveiled a program named Amsale x You, a service that allows a bride to "build" their own gown online using couture patterns from the company's archives. Several dresses were shown in which the models designed their own dress.
