After a decade working in the buying offices of Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, Gabriella Risatti opened her own boutique in 2008, Gabriella New York Bridal Salon. The meticulously curated selection of couture gowns that are arrayed around the shop’s perimeter is exclusive to the store and encompass both classic and contemporary styles. There are clean, modern looks from designers like Elizabeth Fillmore and Johanna Johnson, more feminine, romantic styles from designers like Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier Bliss and Reem Acra and sexy silhouettes from Kelly Faetanini and Lihi Hod. London–based designer Jenny Packham makes vintage inspired beaded sheaths, while Anna Maier perfects the classic lace gown. Vintage fur stoles and jewelry, decorative hairpieces, and customizable veils by Sara Gabriel are among the swoon worthy selection of accessories. The vibe at Gabriella New York is downtown relaxed and the team prides themselves on creating a relaxed, fun and pressure-free experience for every individual.
