Amanda Wakeley, David Fielden, Ian Stuart, Matthew Williamson and Stewart Parvin are among the top UK fashion names showcasing their 2012 bridal collections at White Gallery London 2011.
The world’s most exclusive wedding wear retailers and the influential press will once again have the opportunity to see the very best in bridal design at this elegant three-day trade event held on 22-24 May 2011 in Battersea Park.
Amanda Wakeley Sposa will be presenting a supremely luxurious range of dresses, injecting fresh new shapes and contemporary, light fabrics. Cord embroidery is a dynamic and youthful embellishment on the bodice of a satin gown. A parachute hem gives a fresh twist to the traditional train. Gunmetal chain detail trims an empire line georgette dress, making an exceptional statement. David Fielden will be showcasing his 25 signature gowns – structured yet soft, romantic and floaty in slinky satins; cut-out work and soft, fuller skirts with embellished bodices will be key features. ‘White Gallery London is an event that was very much on our radar last year and one we felt very necessary to partake in for 2011.
The show is ideal for the David Fielden brand as it encompasses what we stand for high-end luxury, style and glamour. It is a fantastic opportunity to present the 2012 collection to a high-quality retailer and buyer set in a fabulous venue,’ David Fielden. Ian Stuart will be showing a selection of classic elegant gowns. Full skirted dresses meet asymmetric tiered styles, presenting innovative updates on period styles. Luxe fabrics include brocade and taffeta with lace also dominating the collection. ‘Once again we will be presenting our 2012 Bridal collection in association with White Gallery London. This is the most exclusive and couture bridal trade show, giving buyers the opportunity to see many different designers and accessory collections. Elegant surroundings and daily fashion shows give the buyers and press the first look at the leading collections,’ Ian Stuart comments.
Matthew Williamson will be launching the full bridal collection showcased for the first time ever in a glamorous catwalk show at White Gallery London. Fong Ee, a spokesperson for the designer, said: ‘Matthew Williamson Bridal is a natural extension of the mainline eveningwear; the pieces are characterised by a soft and feminine silhouette in richly-embellished luxurious fabrics. Elements of the designer’s signature style, fine embroidery and intricate beadwork, are central to the look. The personality of the collection encapsulates elegance and opulence and combines them with a bohemian spirit’. Stewart Parvin will be presenting pretty embellishments and flowing light fabrics with fluid lines.
Classic structured A-line dresses are key to the collection with lace and chiffon offering a contemporary take on traditional styles. Waistline detailing creates perfect silhouettes and look and feel ultra feminine. Stewart comments: ‘It’s such a fabulous setting to be able to present our collection.’ Alan Hannah, Anoushka G, Blue Bridalwear, Halo Designs & Co, Hollywood Dreams, Johanna Hehir, Katzi Jewellery, Lyn Ashworth, Polly Edwards, Rachel Simpson Shoes, Ritva Westenius, Sassi Holford, Stephanie Allin and Vivien Sheriff Millinery will also be amongst the UK talents at White Gallery London 2011 together with some big international designers including Claire Pettibone, Gemy Couture Bridal, Jesus Peiro, Lea-Ann Belter Bridal, Lusan Mandongus, Olivia Couture, Stephanie Browne Australia and Ugo Zaldi.
