Welcome back friends! We continue our recap of NYBFW with two couture collections that just make our hearts flutter. We had the pleasure of stopping by the presentations of Peter Langner’s Fall 2020 Collection as well as that of The Atelier (now headed by Jimmy Choo). If you’re a couture enthusiast like myself with an affinity for classic yet contemporary pieces, these two wedding dress lines are for you. Scroll on to get your lives!

Peter Langner Fall 2020 Presentation
Founded in 1989, Peter Langner is a couture bridal and evening wear design house based in Milan, Italy. Having worked for the masters at famous design houses such as Christian Dior, Emanuel Ungaro, Guy LaRoche and Christian Lacroix, Peter Langner is the cream of the crop when it comes to couture gowns. The Peter Langner Fall 2020 collection delicately intertwines contemporary designs with eccentric details. Precious fabrics in pink, gold, and champagne hues are hand embroidered with Swarovski crystals and beads. Structured bodices are enriched with dramatic overskirts, bows, and exquisite draping. Fluid lines and classic silhouettes are accented with deep V and boat necklines, while fanciful details of floral lace appliques and tulle add layers of romance. A wonderous interpretation of nature’s garden combined with modern elements of design and couture level detail convey a sumptuous collection fit for every elegant bride-to-be.
The Atelier by Professor Jimmy Choo
Originally founded in 1986 as a small bridal shop in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia, The Atelier was officially established in 2013 when it launched a wedding dress design studio in Shanghai, China. In 2017, legendary designer Jimmy Choo joined as Creative Director and you know what that means- PERFECTION! Inspired by a royal fantasy, The Atelier Fall 2020 collection features true couture craftsmanship in dreamy gowns of layered tulle, intricate lace and the finest silk crepe. Figure flattering and exposed corsetry is complimented by dramatic voluminous skirts, for a modern take on the traditional ball gown. If you’re a couture-lover like myself with a flair for the “majestic”, this collection is for YOU. Below’s just a glimpse into what we saw!
