Nadia Manjarrez Bridal Fall 2023

Inspired by the beautiful sunset she experienced on her honeymoon in Culiacan, Sinaloa Mexico with her husband, for this bridal collection Nadia Manjarrez injected an array of sorbet and colored skies. And this inspiration is made evident in the textures and embellishments found in this collection—recycled taffeta, Japanese nude tulle, 3-D leaf embroideries, floral fil copuè, and simple matte crepe bodices.

“Sunsets remind us to slow down, reflect on the achievements and successes of the day and prepare for what’s to come. I see this collection as just that. It has been one year since we launched, and [fall] 2023 was an opportunity to expand on what is working and savor how far we have come as we continue to grow and understand our customer,” detailed Nadia Manjarrez.

Expanding on the beauty of nature, Manjarrez put a strong focus on the textures found within it: billowing clouds, delicate flowers and lightweight feathers were brought to life by her in-house atelier team that hand-appliqued, embroidered and created dimension through 3-D leaf embroideries. Staying true to her original concept of modular pieces, the collection features removable puff sleeves, peplums, and oversized bows as well as gowns that transform into cocktail dresses with just one zipper. Voluminous ball gowns in a floral fil copuè and recycled taffeta provide drama for a bride looking to make a statement. Layers of shimmering nylon organdy swirl around the body to create a floating on-air effect. While Japanese nude tulle ruched over a simple matte crepe bodice gives a subtle twist on a traditional fabric and silhouette.

This is a collection that is for that bridal customer that wants something out of the box. Though there are some traditional silhouettes in this collection, Manjarrez expands on those traditions and injects her own sense of modernity and fashion sensibility.

Add to that melding of traditional silhouettes with a modern sensibility, Manjarrez, as in previous collections, infuses her Mexican heritage. This is evidenced in this bridal collection’s strong inclusion of floral embellishments and oversized bows and statement sleeves.

That said, what stands out most in this bridal outing is Manjarrez’s growth as a bridal designer. And this growth is a testament to her talent, her craftsmanship and her vision. Her customer base will not be disappointed, and her new customer will be excited!!
