1990s Wedding Dress Styling

The 1990s… Supermodels, Donna Karan, The Gap.  It was a decade that is simultaneously about glamour and classic Americana.  But don’t forget, it’s also the era of Nirvana-inspired grunge.

When it came to brides, Vera Wang, was the designer that led the decade.  Her interpretation of the ball gown that had become so popular during the 1980s as a stripped down bodice similar and full skirt of tulle lent itself to a trimmed down version of the full-skirted and puffed sleeve excess of the 1980s.  She is most famous for her remimagining of the 1950s “apron dress” made popular by style icon Audrey Hepburn.  However, perhaps the unsung heroes of the 1990s and bridal fashioning are design duo Badgley Mischka who offered an altnerative vision for ’90?s brides with a stunning assortment of paired down yet intricately hand-beaded gowns.

Many of the silhouettes we look to today are inspired, in part, by the 1990s.  From the debut of off-the-shoulder designs to highly sculpted corse bodice.  However, free-flowing voluminous gowns had been replaced by narrow and A-line gowns silhouettes.

If you want to bring elements of the 1990s into your future-vintage gown, look at Henry Roth’s
