London Bridal Week and White Gallery 2018
Wow! I literally had the most amazing time at London Bridal Week and White Gallery. I was absolutely exhausted from my 4.30am start but the excitement (and Prosecco) kept me going. Pictures are at the bottom of this post!
Here are the key trends that I could find:
- Floral: So many designers had at least one floral print dress.
- Gold & Nude Colours: I don’t think I passed any stand that didn’t have a gold or nude collection of dresses. There was less emphasis on the traditional ivories and whites.
- Geometric: I spotted a lot of dresses that took in elements of geometric form.
- 3D Flowers: Again, pretty much every stand had either one or two dresses with a pop of a 3D flower.
- Sparkles: My favourite! It was sparkles galore! Sparkles were very prominent on the JLM Europe stand which featured Lazaro, Hayley Paige and Tara Keely.
- Separates: There was a big emphasis on two pieces and mix-matching. This allows brides to create their own unique looks.
- Feathers: Feathers were everywhere! They featured quite strongly in hair accessories but many designers have dresses with either a small nod or let them dominate the skirt.
- Jumpsuits: My favourite jumpsuit had to be THEIA. It was perfection.
Translucent over Colour: I spotted many designers had dresses with a gold, champagne and nude tone underlay with either lace, geometric style or embellished overlay. On the THEIA stand, they had mix and match underlays in many colours including blues.
- Back to Basics: Whilst all of the trending styles are popular, there’s is still a huge demand for traditional styles and I noticed many featuring their traditional styles but maybe adding a small modern or trending twist.
- Capes: Not as prominent as I thought they’d be but still a strong presence.
One of my highlights was getting to meet my bridal-idol…The David Fielden. I will have a blog post with that on another post. It deserves the focus!
I asked many bridal designers what they think Meghan will wear and it was a complete mixed bag. Some believe she will go for the traditional lace, high neckline, sleeves and large skirt. Others hope that she won’t conform to this traditional style and will go for something more tailored which is more in-keeping with her own style. Everyone seemed to agree that there will definitely be a train, and a big one at that. Most believed that she will have a few different dresses….watch this space! There was great speculation as to who is designing.
Another highlight for me was the 4pm
Fashion Show. It was my first time at a proper bridal designer show and I sat back and enjoyed with a glass of Prosecco. It was incredible. The staging, music, atmosphere, designs, models, make-up, hair….it was all so well put together.
