    New York's brides-to-be, some hopefuls, and all who love fine design headed to Lara Hélène Bridal Atelier to celebrate the bridal brand's feature in INSEAM, a documentary series that explores the real life business of up and coming designers, hosted by Eric Villency. The documentary records the professional and personal lives of the design duo of Lara Hélène: Lara Meiland in New York and Lisa Hélène Meiland in London.

    The hosts included Melanie Charlton Fascitelli, Carrie Cloud, Di Petroff, Vaughn Massey, Kathryn Bohannon, Maggie Katz, Rachel Wolkowitz, and, to add some male glamour, Kristian Laliberte. The ladies were all wearing their own custom evening gowns designed by Lara Hélène to honor the occasion.  Veuve Cliquot provided champagne to toast the occasion.
