At NY Bridal Market last month, we were treated to a preview of the fall 2015 line by one of my favorite bridal gown designers. The new Amy Kuschel Peace and Love Collection has her signature classic yet contemporary feel, with a focus on flattering fits and comfort. This charming collection with its nod to the 60’s & 70’s flower child ear is particularly hip, but as always, Amy uses the finest fabrics from beaded French lace to embroidered organza.
Today we are sharing a preview of some of our favorite new looks from the new collection, photographed by Riley MacLean Photography who documented our time at New York Bridal Fashion Week. The best part? Amy Kuschel is carried by one of our local NC bridal boutiques, Lana Addison Bridal in downtown Cary, NC!
Amy Kuschel’s signature fitted dress with a slight trumpet is showcased with Quinn. The trend of lace décolletage and sleeves is matched with a sexy peek in the back.
The lovely Luna gown is relaxed yet elegant

Amy created a “Jackie” series, all short dresses in the same shape but featuring different laces. Shown here is Bella Rose.

Cassidy, embroidered organza, is in the softest shade of blue. My personal fave – and a perfect choice for any UNC or Duke alumna!
