White Gallery London 2013

by Bride Chic

It's that time of year again when we introduce you to the best out of White Gallery London, the international trade event showcasing British bridal collections. My own take on this year's chic is that we're seeing more peplums (a real hark back to the 1940's) and a ton of lace ranging from the most traditional to cutting edge and one-of-a-kind varieties. And of course I love those luxe, clean taffetas and satins that Stewart Parvin and Ian Stuart show off so beautifully.  Below are a...

Stalking the Bridal Look Books: Rosa Clara

by Bride Chic

I was researching a post on Point d'esprit when I ran across Spanish designer, Rosa Clara's latest. Not that I haven't seen these pieces from her newest bridal collection--they're burning up the boards over on Pinterest like wild fire. It's when I stop and really look at these creations I have to admit, simplicity done right carries real impact. She's used just the right fabrics so each piece molds to the body like a fine sculpture. Using mostly optical whites, Rosa Clara is a...
