Weddings at London Fashion Week 2008

london-fashion-week1This week’s London Fashion Week saw Agnness Deyn strutting down the catwalk in House of Holland’s unique tiered tartan wedding dress.  Her accessories were a pair of tartan antlers, a tartan eyepatch all brought together with a bridal veil.

The look was certainly haute couture but if you’re not feeling so brave (and Scottish!) then here is a run down of the latest trends for 2009′s stunning brides.

Sleek romanticism from the 1940′s is definitely a key look with designers such as Jenny Packham adorning her brides with oyster chiffon, tulle, satin, silk lace and a sprinkle of crystals. White fur stoles were a out in force and although perhaps not practical for down the aisle, a stylish (and warm!) addition for winter weddings or evening blessings.

Pre-raphaelite brides will love Alice Temperley’s reliably quintessentially English collection with ruffles everywhere! The grecian goddess is also continuing into Spring 2009 with long, flowing empire line waists ideal for tall and slender woman. Finally, the mini-skirt wedding dress! If you’ve been working on those pins then now is the time to get them on display. If mini is too daring why not opt for Oscar de la Renta’s mid length as seen earlier this year on the catwalk, its retro cuteness brings sexy brides to a whole new level!
