HB is a brand new NY Bridal Market that showcases the upcoming talent of the independent bridal market. Find new gowns and accessories for your boutique made by designers who care about quality, sustainability, the boutiques that support them, and the brides that wear their designs.
CREATED FOR AND BY THE INDIE BRIDAL INDUSTRY
BY USING ONLINE SURVEYS, HORIZON BRIDAL TOOK INTO ACCOUNT OPINIONS OF BOTH DESIGNERS AND BOUTIQUE OWNERS TO PLAN OUR FIRST OCTOBER MARKET.
WITH ALL THE CHANGES THAT HAVE BEEN HAPPENING IN THE WORLD DUE TO COVID, HORIZON BRIDAL IS SAD TO SAY THAT BECAUSE THE KNOT COUTURE SHOW AND ONE FINE DAY BRIDAL MARKET CANCELLED THEIR IN-PERSON EVENT, IT LOOKS LIKE OUR OCTOBER 2020 NEW YORK BRIDAL MARKET EVENT WILL NOT BE PROCEEDING AS NORMAL.
INSTEAD, HORIZON BRIDAL IS GOING VIRTUAL AND BRINGING DESIGNER COLLECTIONS DIRECTLY TO YOUR FINGERTIPS IN A FEW DIFFERENT WAYS…
First, I want to introduce you to the amazing talented designers that signed up for what was supposed to be HB’s first October in-person market! I was so thankful and thrilled to have these bands part of the HB collective and I am even more stoked to include them on the Indie Marketplace AND participating in HB’s first ever VIRTUAL NYBM. You can read more about each designer by clicking on their image below.
* Most of the collective designers (along with a few others) have already added their collections to the marketplace. The remainder are currently in the process!
Along with these talented designers, more have joined the collective to show their latest styles during NYBM October 2020. Learn all about the brand, schedule appointments, RSVP to virtual events, and more by clicking on the link below.
As mentioned above, because of the virtual change in the industry I’ve launched the INDIE MARKETPLACE. On Horizon Bridal’s password protected marketplace, you’ll be able to view collections and send inquiries to multiple designers from your computer and on the go.
To start viewing collections, sign up for your account below.
One of the main goals of Horizon Bridal is to help connect independent bridal boutiques with independent designers. Our directory is compiled with talented bridal gown and accessory designers that want to connect with awesome stores like you! HB hopes to continue to grow this list in time. Browse the directory to find designers along with contact information and key information about their brand.
HORIZON BRIDAL’S FOUNDER
| Hi, my name is Alyson Melhus and I am the designer behind the bridal accessory line Alyson Nicole.|
Some of you may know me, some of you may have met me for a second, and some of you may not have a clue as to who I am but I’ve been thinking about HORIZON BRIDAL ever since I did my first show at The London several years ago. Last year was when I decided to move forward with my plans to start something new for the independent bridal market.
I am always open to suggestions, comments, and constructive criticisms on how I can make HB work better for both designers and buyers.
A MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER: The announcement for Horizon Bridal was originally supposed to be sent around Spring 2020 Bridal Market. I decided to postpone and wait until boutiques and designers got back on their feet. I know this year has been difficult for our entire industry. If there is anything HB can do to help support you during this time, please feel free to reach out with any suggestions. We are in this together! – Alyson
