Bridal Gowns - Carol Hannah & Fancy NY

...and so our bridal gown search continues :)  If you are in Michigan looking for these designers contact Stacy of the The Gown Shop Ann Arbor at to schedule an appointment at her shabby-glam, amazingly beautiful bridal boutique located in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor.

Carol Hannah received her rise to stardom after her appearance on Project Runway.  She derives her inspiration from her southern roots as can be seen by the infusion of southern charm and grace in her designs. Carol Hannah’s design aesthetic combines whimsy with organic details – raw edges and fabric handwork that seems to grow out of the fabric itself. For Carol Hannah, design is all about how the fabric speaks to her, how her environment inspires her, and how the ever-changing pieces take shape.  Take a look for yourself:

Fancy New York is owned by two brothers, Stephen and Gregory, whose dresses are considered an alternative to the formal bridal gown.  Inspired by "Sunday Best," their gowns are elegant, yet alternative.  Take a look:

Nice! Which Project Runway season was she in? Loved the flowy effect of the Anson Street gown, and the very feminine Meeting Street gown. My favorite amongst these dresses is probably the last one by Fancy New York, that bow belt is lovely!
