Fashion Designer Andrea Iyamah has released her highly anticipated bridal collection via live social media presentation, hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue. The collection entitled “At Sea” follows Andrea’s two year hiatus from bridal design, which she shared gave her the opportunity to re-imagine the identity of the AI bride.

Though lovely, the recent collection does greatly differ from her previous bridal work, leaning more towards the luxury resort wear aesthetic of her ready to wear division. Featuring nine pieces of majority separates, the garments can easily be coordinated by the preference of the bride to create a relaxed yet chic wedding ensemble. Although slightly disappointed the collection did not include the more formal construction we’ve admired from past collections, the decision for the new direction is needed.

There is no shortage of traditional wedding gown designers in the current bridal market. However, the options for brides who prefer a more fashion focused approach , similar to the stylish clothing they wear from day to day are few. “At Sea” seems ideal for the bride who appreciates a timeless look that can not only be worn with ease on her wedding day but serve as a staple in her wardrobe for occasions to come.
