WHAT EMERGING TRENDS HAVE YOU NOTICED FOR SPRING WEDDING DRESSES?
“Brides are becoming more daring and going for dresses that are showing more skin in soft, floaty semi-to-transparent dresses. They’re also looking for a dress with a very low or plunging neckline to the front, back or both. Texture, deconstruction, layers, movement and 3D is big – so as I am tactile myself, I am in my element with design ideas!
SLEEVES OR NO SLEEVES?
“I’m seeing a lot of brides choose gowns that either have some sort of sleeve or strap and move away from strapless gowns.”
LACE WAS A BIG STYLE TREND IN WINTER FOR WEDDING GOWNS – DO YOU THINK THIS WILL STAY IN SPRING?
“Lace is still a popular design feature for brides at the moment, especially lace with a bit of noticeable texture.”
WHAT STYLES OR SHAPES DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR SPRING?
“I like to design a bride’s dress to suit her figure, shape, price bracket, colour palette, personality, wedding style, detail and season in that order. So I try to take the season into account, but it is not as important as the figure, shape and personality of the bride wearing her dress.”
