Jenny Lee delivers “Modern Vintage” for spring 2012

“My desire is that Jenny Lee Bridal will allow fashionable brides the opportunity to wear a gown that fits their style and allows them to be who they want to be.” Jenny Lee

Jenny Lee had an intimate showing at the Essex House in NYC during bridal market.  Of all the possible viewing venues the Art Deco Room was a perfect room for her Modern Vintage collection.

Known for creating sculpted, young elegant and extremely feminine bridal gowns, each is meant to enhance a woman’s silhouette. This season she has taken the romance of the 50’s and 60’s fashion and blended in her style to create soft yet fashion forward bridal style.  No matter the gown in the collection, there is something for each bridal individual identity for her wedding day.

Lots of silk flowers, crinkled tulle, and silk organza lends to the distinctive Jenny Lee look and feel.

Hi!  OMG the last 4 days have been on FIRE! Running from here to there; looking at countless dresses, speaking with designers and of course catching up with some of my friends in the industry.  Honestly, it is like a high school reunion.  OK, so I honestly hope that you’re been following along with my tweets and of course that you have subscribed to our facebook page.  There is just so much goodness on there, I can barely contain myself.

Classic, romantic and sensual for the 2011 Jenny Lee collection

“This season I will be showing new and exciting designs from my Couture Collection and in addition, I have designed a “Classic Romantic and Sensual” collection that will offer today’s fashionable bride the opportunity of getting married in a more traditional church ceremony wearing a gown that is sensually veiled in a classic style” Jenny Lee

Known for using only the highest quality fabrics, Jenny creates sculpted fun, elegant and feminine gowns.  This season she has stepped out of her box to offer brides even more.

The 2011 collection continues to use soft and delicate organic fabrics yet she has added voluminous skirts with details to create a truly romantic ball gown effect.  So if you dreamed of being a princess, you now have your opportunity with Jenny Lee.

I’ve known Jenny for over six years and have watched her collection and followers grow.  What I think sets her apart is her attention to detail and the dreamy way you feel when you put o (on) one of her gowns.  A gown by Jenny Lee will leave you breathless.
