With only days to go until New Zealand Fashion Week, we stopped by some of the Bridal Industry's elite to get word on what we'll see next.

Modes on Broadway houses top international bridal designs by the likes of Pronovias, La Sposa, Nicole Miller, Cymbeline and many others. It's the place in the centre of fashionable Newmarket, Auckland, to find your dream dress, and be supported and guided by their experienced team.

We're excited to see their new collections, which will be shown at the New Zealand Weddings Magazine Show at New Zealand Fashion Week at the end of this month. And while Diane Stephenson from Modes is hesitant to give too much away, she is happy to give us a teaser about what we'll see at this year's show, and a few tips to take away...

Can you give New Zealand Weddings' brides an idea of what we'll see on the runway this year from Modes?

Diane: Uniquely beautiful, exquisite design straight from Europe to the most fashionable brides in NZ.

What details do you think will be big in bridal for 2018?

Intricate delicate fabrication and a step towards colour – blues, blush even two or more tones.

What detail would you love to see make a comeback?

Attention to cut and fit of the wedding gown, no more ill-fitting boho.

What kind of feeling do you want to evoke on the runway?

High fashion, exquisite act, a more intriguing collection.

Give us one tip about planning our overall bridal look?

You will be looking at your wedding images for years to come. Make sure the look you choose is right forever and not just right for now.
