In the past few seasons, bridal’s annual fashion seasons have proved especially exciting for the bride seeking something unexpected–from a designer she’s never heard of. Graduates of these famed fashion houses, established household names with an eye on the bridal market and some new kids on the block have ushered in a more competitive, dynamic and diverse bridal fashion scene for those looking to stand out from the Chantilly Lace-clad pack. No matter what your personal style, one of the 33 Trending New Bridal Designers are driving the of-the-moment bridal conversation, offering twists on the traditional gowns we’ve grown accustomed to. And, one of them is Caroline Hayden from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Yes you read it right.
Minnesota-based Caroline Hayden knows her clientele; she launched her first collection, Fall 2016, after years of designing bespoke ready-to-wear, evening and bridal in the midwest. Her hybrid bridal-meets-ready to wear debut focused on three color ways in three fabrications, all of which were designed to be wrinkle-free and withstand the test of time. Separates are key to this collection’s cool factor, where silhouettes gain visual interest, versatility and dimension with each added capelet, vest or pleated-collared blouse. Her smart fabrics are as intelligent as her multi-piece looks, which encourage brides to find ways to wear their special-day separates post-wedding.
