Forget about Christmas. Bridal Fashion Week is the most wonderful time of the year! Wedding dress designers from all over the world come together to showcase their artistic creations. We love seeing all the new ideas and upcoming trends for the year to come. Traditional white gowns are still a classic, but there is so much more variety available now. Organza lace, tulle layers, diamond embellishments and backless beauties… even if you’re not currently in the market for a wedding dress, there’s no harm having a look!
Here are some upcoming wedding dress trends to watch out for this year.
Diamonds are Forever
Embellishments and details are the best thing ever! Pearls, sequins and diamonds create new patterns and shapes over the fabric giving a unique and super glamorous look. Some designers seemed to have taken inspiration from Lupita Nyong’o’s $150K Oscar dress.
Layering lots of contrasting and complementary fabrics seems to be the way forward for wedding dresses. Why choose one fabric, when you can have lace, tulle AND feathers? Illusion sleeves have been growing exponentially in popularity, I blame the fabulous Duchess of Cambridge, Mrs. Kate Middleton for this one.
Tickle me Pink… or purple, or blue… maybe yellow.
Wedding dresses no longer need to be white, brides are showing much more personality on the big day recently. The designers at Bridal Fashion Week have duly noted our requests and have delivered us stunning, coloured gowns to swoon over.
