Wholesale Special Occasion Dress Showroom NYC: Blake and Company

vm by mori lee dresses nycYou don’t have to spend a million bucks to look like a million bucks.  You’ve heard that saying before, but when it comes to special occasion dresses in New York City – Blake and Company means it.  Wholesale special occasion dress clients can find what their customers are looking for without breaking the bank.

It is important to understand that money doesn’t always equal style.  It is a good idea to consider the cut, construction and fabric of the special occasion dresses.  It is also worth remembering that confidence is important when women want to look their best.  A little confidence can go a long way when it comes to looking great in a special occasion dress.

We live in a society filled with images of runway models and red carpets, women must know what it is that makes them fashionable.  For the most part, women in their 40’s are targeted to wear clothing modeled by women in their 20’s.  In addition to that, the model photos are all digitally retouched.  So how does the average woman determine their own individual style?  Women rely on the opinions of special occasion dress vendors.  Women tend to have their favorite designers or favorite special occasion dress cuts and pretty much stick to their comfort zone.

If you want your special occasion dress clients looking their best, be sure to visit Blake and Company’s New York special occasion dress and mother of the bride dress showroom.  We carry a large selection of Daymor Couture dresses, Damianou dresses, Ideas by Barbara dresses, SIA SIA dresses, Scaravelli dresses, JSS Knitwear dresses and VM by Mori Lee dresses.

Special Occasion Dress Tips by Blake and Company: New York’s Premier Mother of the Bride and Special Occasion Wholesale Dress Showroom

special occasion dresses nycHave you recently been invited to a wedding?  Spring and Summer weddings are upon us and guests must decide on what to where.  When selecting a special occasion dress there are a few tips to keep in mind.  First, let’s remember the cardinal rule: Never wear a white special occasion dress to a wedding unless you are the bride.

Okay, now that we got the obvious rule out of the way, some of the other tips may be a bit more subtle.  Do you think it’s a good idea to wear a black special occasion dress to a summer wedding?  It’s not.  Be bold, don’t bother playing it safe.  Black special occasion dresses can be used for a night on the town, but be bold and instead choose a bright special occasion dress to a summer wedding.

If you really want to make a hit this season, try a long, soft, floral print special occasion dress for a chic and trendy.  Blake and Company has many different special occasion dresses on display at our New York City Wholesale Special Occasion Dress Showroom.  We are the official dress showroom of Daymor Couture, Damianou, Ideas by Barbara, SIA SIA, Scaravelli, JSS Knitwear and VM by Mori Lee.

Roberto Cavalli’s Anniversary Party and His Inspiration to Special Occasion Dress Designers

Special Occasion Dresses Roberto Cavalli

Cavalli’s vision will surely continue to inspire the finest designers for years to come.

Celebrity Weddings took a back seat earlier this week, as Roberto Cavalli celebrated the 40th Anniversary of his company in Paris with an over-the-top anniversary bash!  Over one thousand guests including the likes of Taylor Swift, Naomi Campbell, Janet Jackson and Heidi Klum attended and partied the night away.

The guests dressed in stunning occasion gowns and beautiful dresses that would make Hillary Clinton’s mother of the bride dress look like something off the rack at Walmart.  In the meantime, those privileged enough to be invited chowed down on exotic foods and sipped expensive champagne.  The room was the size of a football field and was decorated with lovely arrangements of flowers and large topiaries.

The celebration honored Roberto Cavalli and his most notable contributions to the fashion world which include animal-printed evening gowns, distressed denim, and a method of printing and patching different fabrics together.  Cavalli’s designs have inspired special occasion dresses and mother of the bride dresses since the mid 1990’s when he burst onto the scene with his exquisite dress designs for the affluent partygoer looking to get noticed.

Cavalli has worked with many of the world’s leading fashion houses including Pierre Cardin and Hermes.  Roberto Cavalli’s clothing and accessories can be found in over 50 countries all over the world.

Cavalli’s vision will surely continue to inspire the finest designers for years to come.

The removable jacket has also gone an overhaul in the mother of the bride industry. Various sleeve lengths that are practical are in.  Mothers of the bride or groom can take off their jackets when they are too hot to reveal a great mother of the bride dress underneath.

Body types that are not flattered by form fitted mother of the bride dresses can take advantage of tiered skirts that can be very flattering as long as they are not too frilly.

Floor length mothers of the bride or groom dresses are out.  There are a variety of hemlines appearing in the latest mothers of the bride or groom fashions.  Cocktail-length mothers of the bride dresses, knee-length mothers of the bride dresses, and handkerchief hemmed mothers of the bride dresses are now all options.  Another choice is the hi-lo dress lengths that feature a high hemline in the front and a long one in the back

More and more clients are turning to environmentally-friendly weddings.  It is a great idea for dress wholesalers to explore the options of environmentally-friendly fabrics when it comes to mothers of the bride or groom dresses.  Organic cotton and silk dresses are made with natural fibers and are a good choice for the environmentally conscious client.
