What was the inspiration behind your collection and what elements are you most excited to share?

MOONLIGHT

This season we were inspired by “The 2000 Sculpture” by Walter De Maria. The depth of our design was inspired by the expansive and minimalistic nature of this work. De Maria’s work was able to create a pattern that was mathematical and executed with extreme precision. Even with the precision this work entailed when your eye moves with the piece you see different design motifs and the illusion that the sculpture expands infinitely. This is what we tried to achieve this season with our collection precise lines and depth of detailing that changes while your eyes are looking at it from different angles. The way the sculpture hugged the ground inspired our silhouettes to be more form fitting and really accent and shape the female silhouette.

Bridal Fashion Week may only last 7 days but proper preparation takes weeks and sometimes months! What steps have you taken this market?

MOONLIGHT

We prepare months in advance designing the collections selecting the fabrics and finalizing the details of each gown. Then we decide which dresses will be part of our Spring 2014 collection.

Each national market has its own strengths. What is your favorite part of New York Bridal Fashion Week and what brings you back each year?

There is nothing more exciting than being in one of the fashion capitals of the world. The city itself is inspiring from the architecture to the people it is what keeps us coming back every year.

We were so excited to announce our LA show! What are your thoughts on COUTURE expanding to the west coast?

MOONLIGHT

We are excited that COUTURE is coming to the west coast. It has been awhile since a great bridal show has graced LA. The layout and feeling of the city of LA is totally different from any other city and because we are based LA we cannot wait to show our retailers what LA has to offer!
