A Novel Romance: 2012 Edition

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Mon, Jan 23, 2012 at 11:59 AM

Yet another diversion from nacho-binging on Sunday, February 5th! The English Dept. has announced the date for the 2012 edition of their annual bridal fashion show, A Novel Romance. Wedding season is in full force, and The English Dept. has handily established itself as the source for cool, sensible, tasteful brides to find their dresses, accessories, and—with the addition of Lille Trousseau next door—their block is a one-stop for lingerie, shoes, and tons of spirit-calming recommendations for flowers, photographers, and all the other many overwhelming details that go into such a production.

In addition to new collections from shop favorites Nicole Miller, Jenny Yoo, and Ivy & Aster, this is the one chance per year to see new work from proprietress Elizabeth Dye, whose own bridal and bridesmaid designs are typically some of the biggest show-stoppers (I gotta pour some out in remembrance of the days when Dye was still making regular womenswear... I wish she had four hands so she could still do both), often replete with tasteful literary references.

This year the show will return to its favorite digs at the Ace Hotel Cleaners Sunday Feb 5 at noon. $10 tickets available right here.
