All week we have been sharing our favorite looks, designers, and exclusive photography by Riley MacLean from our trip to New York Bridal Market last month. Today we are introducing you to the Modern Trousseau Fall 2015 collection, which we previewed in their New York Showroom.
Modern Trousseau is run by husband and wife team, Callie and David Tein, and based in New York and Charleston. The sophisticated, romantic look of Callie’s designs is perfect for Southern brides. Also appealing is the versatility of the collection that allows brides mix and match styles, skirt shapes, color accents, veils and jackets, to create a personalized look.
If you like what you see, be sure to look for some of the gowns from this collection at one of our local NC bridal boutiques, Tre Bella Bridal in Durham. Several Modern Trousseau gowns will also be gracing the pages of our 2015 edition of Southern Bride & Groom!

This gown is Storm, which features asymmetrical lace. She comes in soft gray, ivory and blush.

“The names remind me of what the dress is,” says Callie.
Raven – tulle edged with lace, and lace buttons on the back. Here she is shown paired with the Raven jacket, which can be done separately, and with different lace
Gwen, which can be ordered with or without straps, has a flowy Grecian look, a simple detail at the waist, and a dramatic, low back.
Opal, though covered in beads hand-embroidered with silver thread, hands softly and beautifully. Pair this jacket with another style to add flair.
At Left, Mina, a beautiful, flattering ballgown; At right, Porter, a classic shape in French tulle and hand-cut lace
Modern Trousseau designs a paired veil for many of her gowns. Mix and match as you please for the perfect finish.
Modern Trousseau gowns are always light, and beautifully-fitting. At left, Shelby; At right, Rain.

Kasey features exquisite Italian lace – a sexy, large lace pattern.
At left, Kasey paired with the Kasey cage veil; At right, Honor, a pleated, high-low dress in Thai silk with a lace bodice. Air parachutes this dress as the bride moves.
Another high-low dress just like Honor, Pride is also in Italian silk. Her signature jacket features with mink pockets for a “Game of Thrones” vibe, and when the jacket is removed, Grace Kelly is evoked. What a finale!
