Hi everybody. My name is Yini. I am a design team assistant at Lu Raquel. In just a few days, I will be on my way to New York Bridal Week with our team. I am super excited about that right now and can’t stop telling everyone! I decided to write a blog to tell more people about New York International Bridal Week and share my excitement!
What is New York International Bridal Week?
I want to give you some background about market. The very first New York International Bridal Week was held in 2010 at Pier 94 in New York. This huge bridal event now happens in New York twice a year, in October and April. The market in October is always bigger than the one in April, partly because New York Fashion week is held a month ahead of bridal week and millions of people, who are passionate about fashion, gather in New York to see the freshest designs in the fashion world. At bridal market, retailers have the opportunity to meet bridal designers and manufacturers and shop for new dresses for their brides. The managers of the Piers, MMPI, offered designers great opportunities for trade shows and an opportunity to build longstanding relationships with buyers.
2014 New York International Bridal Week
Last year, Lu Raquel attended their first market and had so much fun! We met many successful bridal shop owners and great people. They loved their brides as much as their business. Some of them became our partners. We were so thankful for the great opportunity that New York bridal market offered!
Here is a peak of some photos that we took last year at the market:

This year, we will be back again! Come see us October 10-12, at Booth 560, Pier 94. Here is the most exciting part! This year, we will offer lots of promotions to our great, future partners. These opportunities are exclusive for market. Plus, I will be there to serve as your personal designer and help your future brides create their dream gowns!
Can’t wait to see you there!
