Fashion Week has just ended and we’ve decided to share our favourite trends straight from the runway. We’re always finding inventive ways to incorporate the latest fashion into our couture gowns and fashion week is a great way to trend forecast.
Brides are becoming more daring and willing to steer away from tradition and we love designing and creating gowns that are different and innovative. That’s why our couture collection launching later on this year is more daring than ever.
Here’s a look at the latest fashion trends and how they can be incorporated into our bridal wear.
The Autumn/Winter shows brought a huge splash of black to the catwalk, the colour even dominated some shows completely. We’ve being playing around with black fabrics in the studio, experimenting with laces and embellishments for a distinctive couture bridal look. We believe that black might be making an appearance in some traditional wedding gowns in the future.
This trend has carried through from the SS15/16 shows through to next season, the trend is also making a come back amongst brides. A corseted bodice is a trend that has been used in bridal wear for centuries and now it’s back. It’s something we’re very excited about in the studio as our new collection derives inspiration from historic french corsetry and delicate colours.
Another trend that shouldn’t be avoided by brides. Eccentric hems can add something very different and interesting to a wedding gown and can be a subtle way to add style and glamour to a simple dress.
Even the mention of ruffles can make a bride run a mile, but ruffles are taking the fashion world by storm this season in a tasteful, original way. The trend doesn’t have to be big and scary, subtle ruffles can look elegant and stylish and can be manipulated to flatter the brides figure.
As we already know from Audrey Hepburn in the 1957 film ‘Funny Face’, midi length skirts can look especially chic and graceful. Whether it’s A-line or a full skirt, midi length skirts are very popular this season and are perfect for Spring/Summer weddings. This trend has also carried from SS15/16 into the Autumn/Winter shows.
Florals are a classic bridal choice and this season is showing them bigger and brighter than ever. Bright coloured florals can be quite daunting for brides and are easily avoided but this season is showing them off proudly channelling romance and joy. It is quite a daring choice but florals can help create beautiful and intriguing gowns.
