Jenny Packham 2020 Bridal Collection

I’m over the moon to kick off the 2020 wedding dress collections with one of the world’s most innovative bridal designers. Last month’s London Bridal Fashion Week saw the launch of the new Jenny Packham 2020 Bridal Collection, and full of artisanal embroidery and signature styling, it’s anything but understated!

For her fabulous 2020 bridal collection, Jenny Packham took herself out of her comfort zone with new diversified looks. Inspired by herself, the collection comprises dresses capturing the spirit of some of the world’s most romantic destinations; Paris, Buenos Aires and New York. A tale of three cities collectively encapsulating a feminine and distinctly modern beauty.

“The Jenny Packham bride is international, elegant and informed. Her style cannot be singularly defined as her influences are so diverse.” – Jenny Packham

First there’s Paris, renowned for its fin-de-siècle grace and haute couture heritage. Inspired by this sentiment, draped chiffon, finely pleated tulle, delicately embroidered organza and voluminous skirts are softly romantic for an ethereal bride.

Jenny Packham 2020 also pays homage to the sensuality and soul of Buenos Aires, a city synonymous with a Latino love of carnival and dance. Silhouettes celebrate the female form with bias cut crepes, intricate embellishment, fishtail skirts and plunging necklines.

New York is an icon of high octane glamour. High-low hemlines, crystal encrusted mini dresses and ostrich feather trims take inspiration from Upper East side elegance and the hedonism of downtown Manhattan. These are sophisticated wedding dresses for a sensational party.

Here I’ve picked three dresses from the Jenny Packham 2020 collection that symbolise of each of the cities…

Jackie (Buenos Aires)

Jenny Packham 2019 Bridal Collection

The astonishing new Jenny Packham 2019 bridal collection offers brides-to-be a multitude of wedding dresses and separates that range from ethereal to elegant and all-out glamorous. 1920s inspired shapes are a favourite, with soft cap sleeves and unstructured hemlines featuring heavily in this opulent collection.

2018 marks the 30th anniversary of iconic bridal brand Jenny Packham. To celebrate the milestone, Jenny chose to debut her 2019 bridal collection at The Ritz hotel earlier this year, in the beautiful ‘Music Room’. It’s symbolic that she chose to mark the special occasion by coming ‘home’ to launch her latest bridal collection.

The wedding dresses in the Jenny Packham 2019 bridal collection boast all the hallmarks the designer is world renowned for. Sumptuous, light and floaty fabrics and delicate, impeccably hand-applied embellishments bring an effortless sense of luxury to all of Jenny’s dresses.

There are some wonderfully charming and fun elements to this collection, including the cute leather jacket, hand-painted by London based artist, Magda Archer. This collection also features a dazzling cream jumpsuit, and together with the jacket, Jenny said “it’s a totally fun choice that people might not expect”.

Jenny Packham 2018 Bridal Collection - Magic Top

Jenny Packham 2018 Bridal Collection

I am so excited to feature the fabulous new Jenny Packham 2018 bridal collection. I have made no secret of the fact that I am a massive fan of Jenny Packham wedding dresses, and the 2018 collection is incredible.

It features many of Jenny’s signature luxury embellishments and sequins that make Jenny Packham dresses so exquisitely unique; you can always tell a Jenny Packham dress!

Jenny Packham 2018 Bridal Collection - Magic Top

The 2018 collection is inspired by the novel The Falling, by Colin Thubron. The novel tells the story of journalist Mark Swabey’s fatal attraction to circus acrobat Clara the Swallow. The character of Clara – her exotic beauty, courage and love of freedom – is what inspired this season’s collection.

“Alone in the spotlight, a circus girl balances on the trapeze; a beautiful, mesmerising act of daring.”

Paying homage to an otherworldly romance is celestial trailing chiffon, flock tulle ruffles, bonded floral lace, oversized satin bows, tailored cropped jackets, embellished bodies and sculptured corsetry. Majestic ostrich feathers, voluminous ballerina skirts and high octane scarlet hues add theatrical drama to the collection.

Every one of these dresses dazzles. The eye-catching designs, meticulous beading, illusion necklines and pretty cap sleeves are yet again so feminine and elegant.

I usually choose three of my favourite dresses from a collection but this is so difficult with the Jenny Packham 2018 collection as I adore them all. So, I am going to talk about the dresses with the most embellished details (true to Jenny Packham’s unique style)…
