The Luxury Wedding Show – Fashion Focus

Posted on October 24, 2011

Having heard that big names like Amanda Wakeley, Pierre Hermé Paris, Temperley London and Vivienne Westwood would be gracing the stands at The Luxury Wedding Show, I knew this was an event I did not want to miss. I therefore headed to the Saatchi Gallery in London on Saturday to meet some of the 100+ exhibitors.

Part One – Fashion Focus

A particular highlight of the day was The Catwalk Show which offered an interesting insight into the trends for 2012.  Favourites of mine included the two striking ball gown silhouettes below (Left: Gisele by Vera Wang, Right: Vivienne by Marchesa).

I also loved these floaty numbers by Delphine Manivet and Suzie Turner.

Suzie Turner’s 17,000 goose feather dress managed to turn heads off the catwalk. Lined with silk taffeta and French Chantilly lace, it took over 800 hours to produce. I am sure you will agree that it was worth every hour.

Also worthy of mention is dress designer Claire Mischevani. Claire adds detachable extras such as top skirts, lace overlays, sleeves and accessories to her designs so that brides can change their look during the day.

It was great to see some newer but equally talented wedding specialists holding their own amongst the bigger names. My favourite find was Maids to Measure who officially launched their boutique bridesmaid service at the show. The lovely ladies at Maids to Measure design bespoke, made to measure bridesmaid dresses for just £195.
