Earlier this week, Mark Zunino debuted his namesake bridal collection for Fall 2018. Dramatic gowns filled the runway, and after the show, we had a chance to talk to the designer about the collection as well as his piece of advice for all brides-to-be!

BP: What was the inspiration behind your collection?

Mark Zunino: The inspiration was really a collaboration from brides all over the world. So many brides have reached out explaining what they were looking and  I listened. I found a common thread of what was is missing and what brides can’t find and helped piece it together with this collection.

BP: What bridal trends can we expect to see on the runways this season?

Mark Zunino: I’m different and I never follow bridal trendss. I just know what I do and collaborate with my clients. Simple and clean and not everything bare and out here. It’s sexy sophistication.

BP: What piece of advice can you give all the brides-to-be out there who are in the midst of the wedding dress shopping process?

Mark Zunino: Try on everything and try on things you never thought you would or something you may not even like. So many brides I work with, I’ll ask them to try something on, and they said they don’t like it on and then they put it on and they thought they could never wear a style like this. Don’t be so closed-minded when you start and think big and try on everything!
