Thursday Treats: A Bridal Fashion Week Special

May 21, 2015

With my gorgeous friend and fellow blogger, Nu Bride

This week was a big one in the British wedding industry. It was time for The White Gallery and London Bridal Fashion Week, two events that run simultaneously in the capital. Bridal fashion week is the same as ‘normal’ fashion week really; designers exhibit their new collections to the press and boutiques so we know what to talk about/ stock for the coming season!

Here are some of the best things I saw…

That Sassi Holford rose dress, oh my goodness! I hope I’ll see a real Rock n Roll bride in that soon. I’ll be honest, I’ve never really enjoyed fashion week that much in the past. I always found it a litttttle bit boring and the new designs all very same same, but this year I totally stand corrected, it was awesome!

I mean, just check out all the shoe prettiness. Boring, ivory satin these are not!

PS I have some really exciting (and scary) magazine-related news to share with you soon. Watch this space!
