Hailing from Chelsea, West New York, Houghton NYC is definitely a bridal label that reflects the urbanism of the city it is based in.
We were blown away by Houghton NYC’s designs from the get go, as they are absolutely edgy (definitely rare for wedding dresses!) and reflect the hottest runway trends of the moment! The fact that the label’s creations mostly come in ready-to-wear separates also means that you can feel free to mix them with your other wardrobe staples and give them a new lease of life after your wedding! If that doesn’t speak to all you fashionable young brides out there, we don’t know what else would.
One of our favourites from Houghton NYC’s 2014 Fall/Winter collection is the two-piece wedding dress that features a crop lace top and high-waisted skirt in the same lace fabric — a classic wedding look that is fashion forward at the same time! Another standout design for us was the sheer lace bustier top paired with a long skirt, which we feel is an inventive silhouette that we haven’t spotted in other collections!
Each of Houghton NYC’s creations are handmade in New York with fine fabrics such as imported silk, laces from Paris, cashmere and light wools from Milan and Switzerland, and are often finished with hand sewn embroideries, appliques and beadwork.
