2015 Alfred Angelo Runway Recap
The lights dimmed, the faux muff-clad audience quieted, the high-tempo music began, and the first model stepped onto the pristine runway. And so began our 2015 runway show.
After highlights from the Alfred Angelo collection, we unveiled the new Disney Fairy Tale Weddings collection, featuring gowns inspired by iconic princesses in signature colors. (Have no fear! The gowns will also be available in ivory.)
Then the lights dimmed one last time, and Lexi Walker steps out, singing her stunning rendition of Frozen’s “Let It Go.” Elsa appears, snow falls, and everyone’s beloved Snow Queen makes the grand entrance of a lifetime… until Little Elsa steals the show.
After the show, attendees enjoyed Frozen-themed light bites and glowing cocktails via an ice luge sculpture. Elsa stayed for a quick meet-and-greet before jetting to her next adventure as our Olaf ice sculpture bid guests adieu.
Introducing our October real bride of the month, Shawna!
The couple’s wedding theme was classy fairytale, and they incorporated personal touches of love throughout the day. “During our ceremony we tied a fisherman’s knot, which when pulled on only becomes stronger,” she says. “We also gave roses to our mothers to show that we appreciate all they have done to raise us.” Shawna and Joel offered American flag pins to all of their guests to represent Joel’s brother, who could not be at the wedding because he was deployed in Afghanistan at the time.
After toasts and speeches given by the couple’s maid of honor, best man and fathers, the couple danced to Jack Johnson’s “Better Together.” “Then we cut our cake, tossed the bouquet and garter and got lifted up in chairs!” says Shawna. “We danced the night away with our family and friends then ran through a tunnel of sparklers before we got whisked away in our limo.”

Hot off the presses! …Or should we say cold?
On Monday, InStyle broke the exclusive that we’re teaming up with Disney to design an Elsa-inspired wedding gown.
A softly-flared sheath gown, the Elsa features a sweetheart neckline, beaded swirls and layers of satin, tulle, glitter net and organza. A finishing Watteau train “captures Elsa’s regal appearance and her bold personality,” says our Chief Creative Officer Michele Piccione. The gown, part of our Disney Fairy Tale Bridal collection, will be available in early 2015.
Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes sneak peeks and announcements!
