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 few of my definite faves...
Using the finest materials, Anoushka G included a variety of antique laces and tulles with rich crepes and flowing silk chiffons. Opulent beading and appliques were used to highlight the personality of each gown. Trends included hand-crafted delicate fluting, beautiful trains and overskirts, resulting in another classic sophisticated collection from the brand.
Ian Stuart repeated his celebration for the diversity of women. His ‘Frill Me' collection serving both the traditional and modern bride, demonstrates a renewed approach to his award winning talent. The show-stopping gowns showed hints of a new direction as well as his signature look that has captivated his audience over the last decade. Ian continued his love of color, which featured prominently alongside lace decorations and appliqué, striking crystal beading and stunning flowers. Demonstrating both passion and originality, the new collection from Ian Stuart created a stir amongst White Gallery London visitors and press alike.
