Spring 2019 Trends to Know, According to Dallas Buyers

The return to tradition, and glamour of a bygone era, was a thread running through the collections this season. But the nostalgia was presented with a twist: as evidenced by body-skimming silhouettes, playful jumpsuits, and pops of lavender. Change was certainly in the air. This season marked the passing of the legendary Amsale Aberra, and the departure of Carolina Herrera, succeeded by up-and-comer Wes Gordon. As houses change hands, traditions are passed down, and legacies endure.

Picasso said that one must learn the rules in order to break them. Or even just bend them. It’s what designers are doing, this year; it’s what brides—in the era of Meghan Markle—do just…because. We asked local buyers what stood out this season.

“There were two trends that stood out this season. First, the soft yet full ball skirts. The second trend was the fitted crepe gown that hugged curves and draped smoothly over the body. Both of these were in almost every collection, appealing to our inner princess as well as our Hollywood glamour side.”—Christina Plumlee of Stanley Korshak Bridal

“Our favorite trend this season was ‘heritage.’ It seemed most designers were looking back at the past and recreated it for the bride of today.”—Cecilia Flores-Barrón of Warren Barrón

“My favorite trend this season is the emphasis on the bow. This can be interpreted in so many different ways, from an origami tie, ties at the shoulder, or a literal tailored bow at the waistline.”—Lindsay Nordyke of Patsy’s, A Bridal Boutique

“Loved the chic clean lines and modern feel from each collection. You can accessorize the gown in so many ways—think capes, veils, jewelry, and belts.”—Amy Hidalgo, Bridal Boutique of Lewisville
