WE WERE THERE! Talya Bendel – Haas Bridal: A CFDA New York Bridal Fashion Week Show That’s Modest & MerryBy The DivaGals | October 23, 2023 | Lifestyle
Talya Bendel and Esty Haas debuted their premier collaboration, Talya Bendel – Haas Bridal, for CFDA’s New York Fashion Week Bridal shows.
Presented on the grand staircase at the iconic Woolworth Building in downtown New York City, Williamsburg natives know of Haas’s decades-long history of providing gowns for the local Hassidic community. We were excited to sit in the front row to see their elegant and classic styles make their grand debut.
The mostly modest collection is inspired by historical beauty and pulls Baroque aspects from design, architecture and grandeur. A deco undertone of sensational sharpness and angularity is present in most looks, which span decades and generations. Expressive themes and places are expressed in the design elements, including the Yew Tree Ball at Versailles, circa 1745, a 1920s Hamptons soiree and Teatro Di San Carlo in Italy in the 1800s for their opening night.
Sponsors and partners included Birch Events for production design, florals and décor; O.J. Williams for casting; David Weisz Fine Jewelry; Yocheved Gross, Cami Esses and the Hair and Blush team for Hair and Makeup; Nina Shoes, The Knockturnal for show consulting; and TeddMed Inc. who provided B12 and IV Drips.
