The Steven Birnbaum Collection- My New Favorite!!

While sitting in the ob/gyn office yesterday, I was flipping through a Brides magazine from a couple months ago. I saw an ad for the Steven Birnbaum Collection- which I'd never seen or heard of before- and I fell in love. :) These dresses are right up my alley!! Clean tailored lines, crisp details, feminine without being frilly. And who wouldn't want pockets in a wedding dress?
Here's the line description, nabbed from his website:
"The Steven Birnbaum Collection is a modern blend of clean lines and simple sophistication. Paying homage to creative genius of Yves Saint Laurent, this season's collection is inspired by the classic styling of the tuxedo..."
Love!! He takes American sportswear, and translates it into gorgeous wedding gowns- I love how they have a hint of vintage 50's in them, but are still very wearable now. Okay, enough of my blabbering- on to the photos!
This is the Kristen- the one I fell in love with in the magazine. LOVE the belt detail, as well as the sheer top with short sleeves.
The Maggie- yay for pockets!
The Callie- how gorgeous is that lace?? And it's lace without being overly fluffy and girly. And again- love the belt in a big way. And the cut of the skirt- eek!

Another fun thing about his collection is that he offers many shorter dresses- this is the Audrey.

Oh if only I could have another wedding (to my husband of course!), I would definitely get one of these dresses. And since they range in price from $970-$2700, I could actually afford one! Tell us about your favorite wedding designer- or your dream dress!


  1. Great wedding collection with the gowns. Cool idea to model with the balloon.

  2. Hi Liane and Julie!
    I love your blog! I just wrote a blog post about the Steven Birnbaum line that will show up on my site next week. I love the line! We need to talk to our husbands about renewing our vows every year just so we can wear new dresses! We are based in Florida but hopefully we can work together someday!
