I’m pretty sure by now that you’re aware of what a HUGE Vivienne Westwood lover I am, so when they guys at The Luxury Wedding Show, London called me as asked if I wanted to share the exclusive first showing of Vivienne’s latest bridal collection…well I just about died.
They say of the collection, “For this latest bespoke Couture and Bridal Collection, Vivienne Westwood has extended the collection up to 20 styles, whilst remaining faithful to her strong belief that femininity ought to be celebrated. The tailoring, corsetry, crinoline, and soft lines of this collection all enhance the feminine silhouette. There are silk satins, georgette and chiffon for the draped and slinky styles, silk duchess and taffetas for the gowns, and embroidery, lace, tulle and sequins all to enhance the couture styles. The collection is romantic yet strong with the colour palette ranging from white, soft ivories, champagne, dusty pinks, gold, to a sumptuous red. The Westwood bride is an independent woman and this is reflected in the collection.”
And in the words of the lady herself, “My clothes allow you to project your personality, and are quite theatrical in the sense that they are real clothes, well-designed, and they give you a chance to express yourself. They are also inviting–people respond to them and want to come and talk to you”
This contest is now closed
Vivienne Westwood will be showing her new collection at The Luxury Wedding Show, London at the Saatchi Gallery, London next weekend, the 22nd and 23rd October. To celebrate the organisers would like to give FIVE lucky Rock n Roll Bride readers two free tickets to this brand new show. Now I don’t know if Vivienne will be there herself, but even the thought that she MIGHT be fills me with excitment and nerves!
Tickets are worth a whopping £50 each and the prize includes:
♥ Entry to the show and a welcome glass of Pommery champagne
♥ Your chance to meet over 100 handpicked wedding experts & swoon over their collections
♥ Reserved seats at the catwalk show

♥ A copy of ‘The Look Book’, the catwalk programme & a copy of ’The White Book’, the glossy guide to the show

To enter, simple comment below by 9am Wednesday 19th October letting me know why you want to come to the show and which designers you’re most looking forward to seeing. I’ll pick my favourites and the five winners will be emailed Wednesday lunchtime. I’ll need to get your & your guest’s full names so we can add you to the VIP list (oooh yeah!)
I’ll be there on Saturday 22nd too, so if you spot a pink head walking around, be sure to come say hi! I might even have a few Rock n Roll Bride Magazines stashed in my bag if you’re lucky…
