NYC Bridal Week: Day 3

10/18/09 Sunday morning started entirely too early with the Trendspot show at 8 a.m. at the Waldorf Astoria. Fashion shows at 8 o’clock on a cold and rainy Sunday morning are not a good idea. Ask anyone. I’m not including any photos from that show here as a form of protest. Stop the insanity. The Trendspot show was followed closely by the 9 a.m. Ines Di Santo show at the Essex House . . .

By 11 am I was at my 3rd huge production of the day – the Monique L’huillier show which was held at a funky arts space called Eyebeam Atelier. This was one of the most anticipated events of Bridal Week. I heard people buzzing about this show days earlier.

Another highly anticipated show was Badgley Mischka‘s in the afternoon. It was a full house in his not-very-big showroom. I was in a rugby scrum with the other photographers.  Close at hand were tiny cans of champagne – with short straws attached – from the Coppola vineyard.

The last show of the day had me right back where I started in the Starlight Ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria for the Kirstie Kelly show. Kirstie Kelly is the designer for Disney Fairy Tale Weddings – there was an ad in the middle of the program for Disney’s new movie The Princess and The Frog.
