Is Black the New White?

When you think of bridal gowns, the first thing that comes to mind is a beautiful white gown.

I know for me the perfect bridal gown would either be strapless jeweled flowing ball gown with a long train or strapless empire gown with my birthstone (peridot) encircling the waist.

Now in today’s modern society, bridal aesthetics are constantly changing… whether  it’s a skirt suit or pant suit maybe a muted color, the traditional gown no longer has to be, depending on preference.

More recently, this Sunday for Fall 2012 New York Bridal Fashion Week, Stellar Couture Bridal Designer Vera Wang, really made an impact with her Black Bridal Dress Collection entitled “Witchcraft”
Very dramatic to say the least,  the question that arises:“Is Black the New White”?

The “Witchcraft” collection of  gowns are absolutely gorgeous, no denying that, however in my eyes they are more evening, than bridal. I can definitely see them on the Red Carpet, but as far as the ideal wedding gown I’m sure they may meet the criteria for some daring fashionista, just not me.

It will definitely be interesting to see how other bridal designer’s will follow in the upcoming seasons though…

Will the Black Wedding Dress be a Trend to Pass or can it become a Timeless Classic?
What’s your opinion?
