Traditionally, an evening or wedding gown is the grand finale of a haute couture fashion show. Times have changed, but in most runway shows at New York Fashion Week you can spot a bridal look. With designers like Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera it’s quite obvious, while modern superstars like Prabal Gurung and Emilia Wickstead give a subtle nod to nuptial style. From minimalist to bohemian and romantic, these designer gowns are our favorite bridal inspired looks from the NYFW Fall 2015 runways.
1. Carolina Herrera
Carolina’s timeless sense of elegance makes a minimalist statement on this column gown. Light ruffled detail at the neckline adds a romantic touch and creates an almost wave-like feel that would make this gown great for a beach wedding.
2. Anna Sui
Eclectic designer Anna Sui puts a boho twist on her signature lace. Replace that furry hat with a flower crown and this dress screams rustic wedding in the trees.

Who knew Americana designer Ralph Lauren had so much 1960s inspiration! This mock neck lace gown with scalloped edges is sure to be a huge hit with 2015 brides.
4. Emilia Wickstead
This creamy coat dress was made for winter weddings. A dramatic front slit adds just enough edge while the classic shape ensures this wedding style would never look dated.
5. Oscar de la Renta
The late Oscar de la Renta always had a way of making incredibly feminine and romantic designs. Bold black floral embellishment adds a bit of edge to his classic sensibility and makes this gown a must-have.

A could-like print brings a touch of color to this classic crossover wrap dress. This style is perfect for a more casual affair paired with a flower crown or bohemian headpiece.
