An Aftertaste of Lightness at The Penthouse in Manhattan's West Village

In the languor of waiting for the return of the New York sun, an elegant show from Bronx and Banco at The Penthouse in Manhattan's West Village gave guests feelings of newness and spring at the "La Danse Blanche" Fall 2024 Bridal Collection's runway show. Bronx and Banco, being an evening wear brand, has brought us a collection of 22 dreamy bridal looks that fill us with a sense of elegance with a touch of dramatic expression. This marks only the second time Bronx and Banco has released a bridal collection, following their debut in this category in October 2023.


The collection embodies a new vision of wedding dresses, which connects clothing with the art of dance and, more precisely, with arguably the most elegant form of dance, ballet. LO'AMMI dove into the heart of the exclusive show to reveal the details of the collection showcased by founder and designer Natalie De'Banco.


Beyond Tradition: The Audacious Femininity of Bronx and Banco's "La Danse Blanche"

The collection provided by Bronx and Banco is infused with new emotions, departing from the traditional wedding dress. This collection's distinctness conveys a sense of sophistication and elegance and also evokes the variety and audacity that describe the completeness of a woman's appearance. Creating an airy appearance for these dresses was achieved through the use of different shapes and beads strung together on a thread, which can also help highlight each woman's unique qualities. The creation of this collection aims to expand boundaries when expressing femininity on special wedding days.

Where Fashion and Dance Converge in Innovative Harmony

The grace and fluidity of ballet are unmistakably reflected in the designer's latest collection, which exudes a distinctive inspiration that can only come from the world of dance. Inspired by the artistry and elegance of ballet, Natalie De'Banco has masterfully combined the worlds of fashion and dance, creating a stunning array of dresses that are truly one-of-a-kind. Each dress in the collection exudes sophistication and style, but it's the intricate shapes and textures that truly capture the essence of ballet's daintiness, transporting the wearer to a world of beauty and artistry.


"'La Danse Blanche' is inspired by my love affair with ballet that began when I was just six years old," said Natalie.


Ballet is a form of dance that expresses elegance, sophistication, and grace in movement. Just as a dress can bring out the feminine quality in a woman, ballet can bring out the epitome of femininity in dance. By blending fashion and ballet, a new life is breathed into the art form, resulting in a beautiful presentation of grace and beauty.


"The collection is my tribute to a ballerina's unique ability to embody both divine femininity and unwavering strength – the goal was to represent the dancer's timeless elegance and spontaneous playfulness through each of my designs." - Natalie De'Banco

A Symphony of Elegance Echoes at Bronx and Banco's Runway Show

The Bronx and Banco collection's light trail exudes sharp notes, which is fitting for an evening wear brand. The show was sensational, leaving guests in awe. The variety of dresses with their trains was intended to look fatal and sophisticated, and they certainly delivered on that front. Even the diverse lengths of the dresses didn't detract from the individual expression of each wedding dress; instead, it enhanced their character. Each look glided down the runway on models who looked ethereal, thanks to skincare by Danucera, hair by Moroccanoil, and nails by Chillhouse Chill Tips. The room was beautifully adorned with fresh flowers, and the models elegantly walked to a range of melodies from "Beyond" by Leon Bridges to "Time To Say Goodbye" by Sarah Brightman & Andrea Bocelli, creating an atmosphere of timeless elegance blended with contemporary feminine celebration, perfectly matching the idea behind the collection.
