Mark Ingram Bridal Fall 2023

The bridal market is an extremely challenging market, particularly in the US. Yearly, new bridal brands flood the US market, attempting to get their share of an ever-growing market and brides’ ever-changing palette for the next best thing. Still, there is room in this evolving market for those seasoned designers who always have the finger on the pulse of what works. Mark Ingram is one such bridal brand.

Though Mark Ingram has made a name for himself as a bridal retailer, in recent years he is making his mark in the industry with his own eponymous bridal collection. In contrast to his contrast to his spring 2023 bridal collection that was inspired by the HBO series “Gilded Age,” Ingram returned to some tried-and-true classics inspired by his hometown New York City.

“My beautiful hometown, [New York City] was the main inspiration for this [fall] 2023 bridal collection. Such architectural treasures as The Guggenheim Museum, The Empire State, and Chrysler Buildings served as influences for my more tailored architectural styles. This is evident in the neckline draping, geometric paneling, and top stitched seaming incorporated in the classic styles. The more romantic and soft styles were inspired by iconic and beautiful NYC interiors such as the ceiling and molding details of the glorious Grand Central Station and the elaborate wood-carved pillars and finials of the Plaza’s famed Edwardian Room and Palm Court. The chic of Park Avenue, the vibe of Tribeca, the sassiness of Harlem, and the grit of the Lower East Side… I celebrate all of it! With this glorious city coming back to life after having been in a Covid sleep for more than two years, for me nothing was more fitting than to pay homage to the city I love the best!

Though there were only about 15 looks in the fall 2023 collection, there were several standouts. Ingram’s Broadway fit-and-flare gown with jeweled spaghetti straps, the silk Mikado fit-and-flare gown with silk shrug, the Chantilly lace mermaid gown with statement sleeves, and lace cocktail dress only represent an array of bridal attire that a variety of brides will purchase.
