Vivienne Westwood is one of my favourite British designers, her designs are dramatic, theatrical, structured and yet so feminine. I was so excited to hear that she was launching her 2012 bridal wear collection at The Luxury Wedding Show held in October. It certainly didn’t fail to impress, I absolutely love it.
In the words of the label:
“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.”
The pictures speak for themselves, the colours and designs of the dresses are definitely for the more independent women, who is confidant in her own style. Vivienne’s collection has designs that would suit a traditional bride that has a quirky edge, to a bride that wants to be a little more outrageous and wow her audience in pillar box red dress!
