Many times while in the search for Bridal Fashion I utter the phrase “Berta! Berta! Berta!” Israeli based Berta Balilti designs pieces for the bride who is strong, classy, confident and not afraid of her sexiness – sounds like a Coordinated Bride to me! These traits were evident in the Fall 2016 showcase at the Grand Ballroom of the Plaza Hotel in New York City that we attended last week.
The rain began to fall as we slipped into the lobby of The Plaza. Once we were seated on the gold chiavari chairs and the lights went pitch black, we knew that we were in for an amazing show. Berta delivered! The designs featured intricate lace details, shimmering palettes, and pearls, crystals coordinated with bare back and plunging necklines. To top off the looks, she introduced dramatic capes and voluminous tulle detachable skirts and bolero jackets.
