For her Spring 2012 Bridal Collection, Anne explored the essence of New York. (Love)!

“New York represents the convergence of styles, tastes, cultures and ethnicity. It is the epitome of modern, classic, Bohemia and glamour. This collection is iconic New York”.

So many designers are inspired by travel and so it’s so wonderful to see Anne be inspired by the great city that we live in – New York!

Incorporating her love of simplicity, Anne Bowen fuses overt glamour in a pared down silhouette creating an ease to her designs. Her passion for mid-century modern is seen in the Tribeca group where chic, modern vertical and horizontal lines are explored with satin chiffon and mikado.

She brings a sophistication to the use of crochet and beading in her Woodstock group by working with delicate fabrics like Cashmere. I think that using the art of crochet in such a fabulous way is refreshing and yet timeless. I can see this bride wearing flowers in her hair and having an ethereal essence as she walks down the aisle.

The ultimate in classic is seen in the Sutton Place and Park Avenue groups where Swarovski crystals are draped and pleated to envelop the body creating luxurious silhouettes and detailing. I see this bride as modern and very confident!
