TAB Style - Jean Ralph Thurin @ New York International Bridal Market!
Jean Ralph Thurin is a designer that I’ve featured on The Anti Bridezilla earlier this year with amazing designs that focus on contrasting textures and an attention to intricate detailing. While I was walking the floor of the New York International Bridal Market show, I had the opportunity to pop into his booth to chat with the designer (who is the namesake of the bridal line) and see some of the new designs in store for the upcoming season.
Jean Ralph Thurin is actually a mainstay in the American bridal community, based in New Jersey, the designer has a rich fashion history which he consistently emphasizes with his gowns. The new season is a nod to Old Hollywood glamour with romantic floral accents and highly detailed pintucking on the bodices.
Since I was chatting with Thurin, I had the chance to ask him a few questions to help brides find THE dress:
TAB: What’s the most important aspect you would want a bride to consider when selecting a wedding dress?
JRT: The dress should speak to you and really make you feel gorgeous and pretty. Things can and do go wrong when you’re planning a wedding. But as long as you feel beautiful in your dress, you’ll be the center of attention and all the drama will seem less important.
TAB: Are there any tips you would recommend in terms of finding the right fit for a dress?
JRT: Don’t forget to dance and move around in your dress when you’re trying it on. You’re most likely going to be wearing this dress for several hours - if not all day! So, you want to make sure that you can sit, dance, eat and just feel comfortable overall in your dress. Again, if you’re worrying about an ill fitting dress, then you don’t feel your most gorgeous.
