The famed business owner behind Mark Ingram Atelier in New York City is also the man behind his namesake bridal brand: Mark Ingram Bride. While last season's collection was inspired by Paris haute couture, Mark Ingram Bride's Fall 2023 collection that debuted this week at New York Bridal Market is inspired by the city where he helps brides-to-be find their dream gowns and, of course, where he calls home: New York.
"My beautiful hometown, New York, NY, was the main inspiration for this Fall 2023 bridal collection," Mark Ingram shares of his vision. "Such architectural treasures as the Guggenheim Museum, the Empire State Building, and Chrystler Building served as influences for my more tailored architectural styles. This is evident in the neckline draping, geometric paneling, and top-stitched seaming incorporated in the classic styles."
Some of the stand-out architectural styles in the fall collection include "Broadway" – a silk mikado mermaid gown with a sculptured bodice featuring stylish straps made of pearls and crystals and a detachable couture bow with tails, as well as "Park" – a modern A-line gown showcasing a fitted silk mikado bodice with a square neckline and a soft A-line skirt with a large, abstract floral silk fils coupe jacquard.
"The more romantic and soft styles were inspired by iconic and beautiful NYC interiors such as the ceiling and molding details of the glorious Grand Central Station and the elaborate wood-carved pillars and finials of The Plaza's famed Edwardian Room and Palm Court. The chic of Park Avenue, the vibe of Tribeca, the sassiness of Harlem, and the grit of the Lower East Side... I celebrate all of it!"
Romantic styles from the designer's collection include: "Carnegie," a strapless French Alençon lace ball gown with a Chantilly lace corset-style strapless bodice complete with a detachable mock-neck topper featuring short puff sleeves and a keyhole back; "Liberty," a floral-embroidered tulle strapless mermaid gown with a detachable, wide-scoop neckline bolero with flared long sleeves; and "Chelsea," a tulle ball gown with off-the-shoulder cap sleeves and a soft gathered skirt.
Crafted by artisans in Italy, the handmade bridal gowns will appeal to classic brides who desire a timeless wedding dress with a modern feel. The Mark Ingram Bride fall collection even presents a minidress that would be perfect for an elopement, courthouse wedding, or an after-party! From strapless styles to long-sleeved beauties, we're sure these wedding dresses will be loved by brides searching for gowns that will fit an array of desired formalities, styles, and themes.
