Every year we watch fashion week with an eye to seeing which dresses would make great statement pieces for fashion forward brides. This year, one thing we learned about Fall 2014 fashions is that the options will not involve a lot of white. We even waited for Milan Fashion Week before posting this year’s report, hoping for more white dresses to showcase. Not so much — but the wait did yield some fun leather options from Gucci. So we title this year’s fashion week edition “Imagine It in White” and invite you to picture the black and colorful dresses in a more demure hue — although I would love an excuse to wear the Carolina Herrera or Zac Posen gowns in those very orange-y oranges.

For this dreamy exercise, if it’s white, it counts (Why Jewish brides wear white).
