Forget bridal fashion as you know it, Danielle Frankel‘s creations have brought a new perspective to the tradition. In fact, forget the word “bridal” at all. The designer, who goes by the full name of Danielle Frankel Hirsch, rejects the label of a bridal person.

Her main inspiration lies in adding fashion elements to an industry that has long been resistant to the idea of looking forward, with every piece making you question everything you thought you knew about down-the-aisle gowns.

Originally from Southern California and now based in the Garment District of New York, home to the Danielle Frankel Studio, Hirsch’s trajectory began at Parsons School of Design and progressed through influential roles at Marchesa and Vera Wang, shaping her unique aesthetic and the construction of an identity perceived, today, as a rebel—a term she embraces dearly.

What makes Danielle Frankel's bridal designs unique?

Imagine versatile attire with whimsy, minimalist touches, revealing silhouettes, romantic embroidered slips, pantsuits and tailored tuxedo pants with a hint of tomboy chic. Probably a much more different portrait of the traditional bride stereotype you have in mind.

Danielle Frankel’s core mission lies in redefining wedding fashion with a fresh take that allows pieces to be wearable outside of the collection. While the intricate creations are, in her words, a palate cleanser in the marketplace, the designer’s unconventional aesthetics still play with nostalgia and demonstrate respect for the old practices.

Frankel’s singular approach to the modern bride has captivated an audience globally, as evidenced by numerous comments on Instagram expressing the sentiment: “Can I get married again just to wear this?
