Only 3 days to go until the latest collections from the leading UK and international bridal designers are unveiled at White Gallery, London and we can’t wait to see what the 2013 designs have in store for us!
Today we bring you a preview of day two on the catwalks, where we will be treated to the creations of numerous fabulous British and international designers!
The day begins with the amazing designs of Stephanie Allin. Known for her fantastic corsetry, Stephanie uses only the finest fabrics, drawing on the past to create fabulous gowns which reflect the glamour of by-gone eras alongside timeless, softly romantic styles.
After a second show from the fabulous Ian Stuart, we move on to the ‘British Talents’ event, showcasing the new collections from Johanna Hehir, Mia Mia, Hollywood Dreams, Hazaar of London, Naomi Neoh, Madeline Isaac James, The Vintage Wedding Dress Company, Terry Fox and Blue Bridalwear – phew – what a list!
So what can we expect to see? Well, from Johanna Hehir, we’re expecting the new ‘Mae’ collection to reflect her signature style of clean, unfussy dresses, based on classic cuts with romantic detailing utilising the best quality European silks and laces. For this collection, Johanna has focused on her favourite slim silhouette shape, taking inspiration from Hollywood style icons and vintage images, using a variety of lace, silk and soft georgette to create a look for the individual bride who knows her own style.
From Hazaar of London, we are expecting unique, adaptable designs to take the bride from day to evening without the need for a second dress, reflecting their ethos of ensuring that their gowns ‘enable each bride to look perfect throughout her wedding day, without compromise.’
One of the White Gallery newcomers this year is Naomi Neoh, who will showcase her romantic new range, translating the grace and glamour of the 1930s through dreamy gowns made of luxurious fabrics including voile silk and couture weight organza, delicately embellished with glass beads.
Then, from Terry Fox, we have been promised a truly flamboyant collection, featuring exuberant bursts of pastel colours in the form of beautifully constructed gowns, complemented with playful texture, patchwork and trademark layers, with laces, chiffon, tulle and silk all hand blended with Terry’s signature highlights of vintage pearls and coloured crystals. Classic styles are given contemporary updates for brides who desire individuality.
Concluding the British Talents show is Blue Bridalwear, who will present their modern retro range, inspired by style icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy, hinting at a glamorous bygone era whilst remaining firmly rooted in the 21st Century. Think Peter Pan and elegant roll collars, lace covered shoulders and just-below-the-knee hemlines – we can’t wait to see this one!
As if that wasn’t enough, we’re then going to be treated to the ‘International Flavours’ show, where we’ll view the latest designs from the amazing talents of Lusan Mandongus/Annasul Y, Sanyukta Shrestha, Elizabeth Stuart, Kisui, Yolan Cris, Victorio & Lucchino Novias/Raimon Bundo and Victoria Kyriakides!
We’re literally jumping up and down with excitement here and can’t wait to share all the latest news with our Wedding Vine readers! Remember to stay tuned to our Twitter feed from 20 – 22 May and keep visiting our blog over the coming weeks for the full catwalk reports and images from the new collections!
