We strive to keep brides up to date on the latest and greatest bridal trends, and that includes naming the top bridal designers of the year. This year, we’ve got our eyes on several—from world-renowned wedding designers refreshing their collections to newcomers trying to make a name for themselves. Here’s a look at the hottest designers to watch in 2022.

Sable gown from Amsale's Fall 2022 collection Kit gown from Amsale's Fall 2022 collection

Amsale

Although Amsale Abbera has passed, her legacy lives on through her timeless yet modern brand. Current designer Michael Cho stayed true to Amsale’s attention to detail for the fall 2022 collection, and brides will be pleased.

Cho found inspiration outdoors: forest streams, blooming florals, and ribbed mushroom caps. The result is stunning pleated tulle, floral embroidery, and flowing skirts and trains. The collection is simply romantic and airy.

Andrew Kwon

Although he’s fairly new to the bridal world, designer Andrew Kwon is already making headlines. After working under bridal goddesses like Vera Wang and Marchesa, Kwon launched his eponymous label in 2020.

This year, he launched his second bridal collection titled “Dreamer”, which transforms fantasy into reality through his designs. The variety is amazing—from dramatic, colorful ball gowns to sleek and structured minimalism. Brides will love the options!

What’s better than one creative mind? TWO creative minds. Designers Yael Eisenberg and Heli Kalkstein have been wowing brides with their sexy, red carpet-esque gowns for the last decade.

For 2022, expect feminine silhouettes and romantic details to take center stage along with long, dramatic trains. We’re in awe with the latest collection and can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the year.

Ines di Santo

Bold and brilliant are just a few words to describe Ines di Santo wedding gowns. Her luxe couture gowns have wowed the bridal world for more than 30 years, but her 2022 collections are very special to her.

Di Santo says she was inspired by family memories and remembers the joy and happiness she’s experienced with family over the years. That sentiment translated to feminine silhouettes and super-romantic details with modern flair.

Ruffles and florals are big trends for 2022, and very fitting with Kaviar Gauche’s latest bridal couture collection “In Full Bloom”. The Berlin-based brand, made with the modern bride in mind, focuses on design, materials, and exquisite fit.

This year, the designer duo created a variety of gowns and pantsuits with a tribute to each woman’s unique femininity. We think they totally nailed it.

Elizabeth gown from the Rivini FW 2022 collection Cosima gown from the Rivini FW 2022 collection

One of our favorite designers on this list is Canadian brand Rivini. Designer Rita Vinieris really plays into the bride’s femininity with every design, and her 2022 collections are no exception. The designer bridges grand luxury with elegant simplicity through lush fabrics, textures, and 3D accents.

Meadow gown from Sareh Nouri's fall 2022 collection Narcissus gown from Sareh Nouri's fall 2022 collection

Sareh Nouri

If fairytale princess is your bridal goal, Sareh Nouri is your girl. We love the modern yet whimsical designs full of imported French lace and Italian silk. Each gown embodies timeless romance with beautiful details like illusion lace and giant bows that are totally swoon worthy.

We can’t wait to see each of these designers shine throughout the year. You can even shop some of them right here, right now!
