Jenny Packham Spring 2015 Bridal–For her spring 2015 bridal show, Jenny Packham showcases a diaphanous outing of white and silver gowns. Surprising is the inclusion of plus size models such as Ashley Graham on the runway—curvy looks both open and close the show. Each dress is named after a famous woman with titles such as Bardot, Garbo and Hepburn bestowed on the looks. Many of the wedding dresses take on thirties inspired accents–see the beaded chiffon, intricate lace details and mini-capes which all decorate demure silhouettes.
Monique Lhuillier Bridal 2015–For her bridal spring 2015 line showcased earlier this week, Monique Lhuillier presented as she calls it her “ethereal daydream”. We can not think of a more true description. Clouds of silk satin organza, tulle finishes, embroidered beading and Chantilly lace create a feeling of fantasy and romance—all things a bride wants to feel on her wedding day. While traditional white is a reoccurring color choice, the Lhuillier woman also wears pastel shades when she sees fit.
Vera Wang Bridal Spring 2015—-The spring 2015 bridal preview from Vera Wang is staged as a short film and accompanying lookbook instead of a runway show as with seasons past. The Wang woman is as romantic as ever for the new season including dramatic princess and mermaid silhouettes as well as more simple column dresses. Details are intricate featuring fabrics of lace, tulle and silk. View the style book images below and short film featuring models Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Elisabeth Erms, Nastya Sten and Sophie Touchet.
Oscar de la Renta Bridal Spring 2015–As with his ready-to-wear collections, Oscar de la Renta’s bridal outing for spring 2015 features impeccable craftsmanship and romantic ladylike designs. The De la Renta bride can be traditional, wearing Chantilly lace over her ivory-white gown with an empire waist. Or the bride can go for a more tropical theme as shown by one look which features a sheer bralet paired with a matching, embroidered skirt. Flower girl apparel is also featured on the runway–cute, age appropriate dresses perfect for young girls. The closing looks bring drama, each featuring full skirts and models with a bouquet of flowers in hand.
