Designer Focus – David Fielden
London Bridal Week was a real inspiration for me and to top it all off, I got to meet David Fielden.
Scroll down for video.
David is one of the worlds best bridal designers and has a career enviable to most. His theatrical background inspires many of his creations and what I love about David is his refusal to join the herd.
He stands on his own two feet and doesn’t get caught up in the trend hype. He knows what looks good and what women actually want. His gowns are timeless and iconic.
When I arrived to his stand to meet him, what struck me was the variation of styles. Straight away I was impressed by his feature gown which had cascading ruffles. On one rail, you could find the David Fielden Classics’ as I like to call them. The classics are the sleek, tailored silhouette styles.
Once your eyes moved from the classics you were greeted by another rail which had an eclectic collection of colours, organza and embellishments.
When we started chatting, it was clear how down to earth David is. He’s warm, friendly and unassuming. What was most interesting was his own style. Casual and cool spring to mind.
I asked him his thoughts on what Meghan will wear and he really hopes that she doesn’t conform to what she thinks she should wear. Meghan has her own unique style and it’s very elegant, tailored and sophisticated. She’s not overly traditional.
One of the main things I love about his work is his understanding of the female form. His tailoring is impeccable. He explained that years of experience has given him his ability to know where the nips and tucks on a dress need to be. He also explained that he uses lingerie models when designing as they have curves. It was refreshing to hear this.
He had a clear fatigue of trends. He designs from the heart and his own creative passion. This is what separates him from the rest. His collection was clearly differentiated in my view.
