At Bridal Market in New York, which ran Oct. 12 to 15, designers presented their Fall 2013 collections. HuffPost Weddings had a chance to catch up with six couturieres after their runway shows, and we picked their brains about the hottest fall trends.
Click through the slideshow below to see what Monique Lhuillier, Vatana Watters, Amsale Aberra, Claire Pettibone, Veronica DiSanto and Reem Acra had to say.
"I think the overskirt is going to be a very popular accessory. These girls love to transform their gowns, so this is just having two looks in one night. All of the overskirts [on my dresses] come off, so you can have two looks."

"One [trend] that kind of stands out is the ladylike look, versus the daring, the overt. [That translates into] more varied necklines, even though over 70 percent of the girls wear strapless dresses. But with the ladylike look, you'll see the bateau, the capped sleeve, the V-neck -- so you'll see more variety of necklines. I think that's something that's going to be very important and continuing for the next season."
"More than strapless -- having some kind of sleeve, something on the shoulder. At least in my collection, that’s what I really wanted to show."

"I would say a little bit of modesty is happening, an understated quality, but still very opulent and beautiful."

"I think the baroque theme is something that's very hot off the runways right now."
"I've been doing [the capped sleeve] ... for five years and it's the biggest hit in the evening wear arena, and in the bridal world."
