Sketches - Bridal 2012

Here are the watercolour and ink sketches from the forthcoming bridal collection along with a little intro as to what you can expect.

Title: The Seven Brides

The basic brief: Seven dresses for seven individuals. Each dress you can wear, dance in and still feel independent in whilst being showstopping. Nothing too serious, nothing too white and nothing too 'bridal'.

The inspirations: Once again dresses that can be worn on the red carpet or down the aisle and old Hollywood film star nuptials. It's a little more low key in silhouette but with added glitz and glamour. Each dress has a style and character of it's own which I will share in detail over the coming weeks, seven dresses for seven brides.

The fabrics: lots of silk taffeta, tulle, rhinestones, beading and texture to make dramatic silhouettes.

The colours: I tried really hard not to use white, but then fell in love with a white polka dot tulle, the colour pallet is blues, champagne, silvers with a big splash of dramatic colour.

So watch this space over the next two weeks, I just had a disc full or gorgeous images of the dress from Laura Michelle this morning. I can't wait to share them!
