    The atmosphere was frenzied and tense as people crowded into Badgley Mischka's showroom on Sunday, Oct. 18, for one of the most hotly anticipated bridal gown collections to be shown this week as designers like Vera Wang, Nicole Miller and Monique Lhuillier present their bridal offerings for next year to press and buyers in New York. While Mark Badgley and James Mischka are known for their intricately embellished gowns both on the red carpet and in the wedding aisle, for their Spring 2010 bridal collection, they kept the embellishment to a minimum, instead focusing on strong, sleek silhouettes like strapless taffeta trumpet gowns with their elegant fit and flare look that recalls the kind of old Hollywood glamour beloved by new Hollywood. They were understated, but with enough glitter to be eye-catching.
    Delicate strands of Swarovski crystal were draped across one trumpet gown like a chandelier. One shoulder looks were also prevalent, and one particularly striking dress featured a grosgrain ribbon as a strap, almost like a beauty pageant queen's sash.
    Badgley Mischka also utilized delicate chiffon ruffles to great effect in both bridal and bridesmaid dresses, seemingly tailor-made for the dancing portion of the wedding reception. The bridesmaids dresses came in cool blue shades like lilac, iris and periwinkle.
    One new silhouette they introduced was a short cocktail-length dress with a longer tulle overlay/train, for the spring or summer bride who wants the effect of a full gown without the weight.

    I was able to interview them after the show and asked a couple questions about wedding trends, the economic impact of the recession, and how they manage to innovate in a field that is essentially about tradition.

    This was held in their showroom, and it was definitely a major scale down from the total opulence of the show in the ballroom up at the Jumeriah Essex House last fall.
