We’ve been checking out all the gowns revealed at Bridal Market last week and picking a few of our favorites that stood out from the crowd.
One particular designer is Punk Rock Bride from designer Stephanie Ward.
Punk Rock Bride was created for the bride who is looking for a less traditional, more fashion-forward wedding dress. We take a unique approach to design by incorporating non-traditional fabrics and mixing multiple layers to add texture and depth to every design. We take care to maintain very simple, classic silhouettes to flatter every figure, and focus on the details, giving brides a comfortable, unique option for their wedding day.
The company was founded in 2006 by designer Stephanie Ward. Stephanie graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), with a degree in Apparel Design. After working in womens wear for several years in New England, a close friend asked her to design her wedding dress, inspiring the launch of the first collection. Since then, there have been six collections, including Emma in 2011 - a more budget friendly online option for brides. All Punk Rock Bride dresses are made in the U.S.
Here are a few photos of the 2013 designs. Check out all the collections at PunkRockBride.com.
