The chic Chelsea Art museum which is surrounded by abundant natural light in New York City served as the location where Project Runway Season 6 finalist, Carol Hannah Whitfield launched her Spring/ Summer 2012 Bridal Collection.

The event took place on Saturday, April 9th and it was attended by leading members of the wedding industry. The place was packed with photographers and magazine writers as well as Carol Hannah's supporters.

Guests were welcomed with a dossier of all the designs that were about to walk down the runway. Hannah started the event with beautiful bridesmaid's dresses that were airy and colorful, made with silk organza, silk chiffon and silk charmeuse chiffon.

The main event started right after with one dreamy dress after the other. The designs were delicate and refined and the variety was vast, there were A-lines, mermaid and ballgowns among others. Her necklines were dominated by asymmetrical, sweetheart and pleated designs. The headpieces, a collaboration with Cheryl King Couture were beautiful feathers on loose braided hair; gold pieces were also spotted on the runway.

Overall the feel of this show was that of an ethereal/ bohemian bride, who is sweet, beautiful and not bound by traditional rules. We hope to see more from Carol Hannah and her amazing designs in the future.
