Bridal Trends From Fashion Week

We have been glued to the recent fashion weeks in London, Paris and especially New York! We caught up with Joan Cashman of the Colour and Image Academy to find out what we can expect to see our beautiful brides wearing next season! Joan follows the Fashion Weeks passionately and is always ahead with what we can expect to see at weddings and events, on the streets and in our favourite stores.

“There’s something for everybody. Think luxury! …..several designers showed strapless dresses with appliqués, embroidery and beadwork done in the most delicate fabrics, beautifully highlighting feminine curves.

The esteemed fashion superstar Oscar de la Renta was the man behind Amal Alamuddin’s romantic wedding dress and this is guaranteed to be copied the world over… And over again!!”


Joan went on to tell us that we can look forward to much more….. “The baroque trend emerged quite a bit and in particular with Naeem Khan and Rivini. Carolina Herrera showed form fitting gowns with peplums and Monique Lhuiller went with oversized trumpet styles. “

Naeem Khan is the name it seems on the lips of brides searching for intricate beading, ornate patterns and a romantic flattering gown. We are huge fans of Khan’s designs and we are not the only ones; his loyal fans include none other than First Lady Michelle Obama, and we can see why! Emily Blunt is also a big fan as well as Matt Damon’s beautiful wife Luciana Barroso , who actually wore one of his beautiful gowns to the recent nuptials of the new Mr and Mrs Clooney! And the most exciting news…. Naeem Khan will launch his full bridal collection on 12th October. We will be watching this one!
