Wedding Dresses from the Claire Pettibone Vagabond 2018 Bridal Collection

Claire Pettibone Vagabond 2018 Bridal Collection

Straight from the catwalk to you, I’m delighted to feature the just launched Claire Pettibone Vagabond 2018 Bridal Collection. You are going to be in wedding dress heaven!

“North, South, East and West… wanderlust has taken hold. Whether we travel from place to place on holiday, as life demands, or in the virtual world, the idea of exploring will always hold a certain romance. We meld and blend our cultures and traditions to create something new and profoundly beautiful, based on love and a sense of adventure.” – Claire Pettibone

With a feel of luxe-bohemian, the dresses in the Claire Pettibone Vagabond 2018 collection are, as always, irresistibly dreamy! Fabrics layered and combined in unexpected ways create truly unique dresses. European lace and graceful embroidery flutter and flow to make each bride look and feel like a goddess. I love the multicoloured tones of these wedding dresses where Claire infused bold colours and rich embroideries. I especially love the Shangri-La dress that features multicoloured embroidery over gold.

The dresses embody Claire Pettibone’s signature style and vision of vintage romance, and have an enchanted, bohemian spirit.

“Each dress tells a unique story, and the beautiful embellished fabrics that I dream, sketch and drape are the first chapter. As the brand continues to grow I maintain my signature style and uphold the standard of quality and couture craftsmanship. The Vagabond 2018 collection is available in many of the world’s finest bridal salons.” – Claire Pettibone

Each and every dress in the Claire Pettibone Vagabond 2018 collection is breathtakingly beautiful. These are the stand out dresses from the new collection (okay, they all ‘stand out’, but I’ve picked a few or my favourites)…

Shangri-La

This dress features such fabulous all over multicoloured embroidery on delicate tulle, which falls beautifully over a gold lace and almond silk dress. Shangri-La has to be one of the pettiest coloured wedding dresses I have seen for 2018.

Sincerity Bridal SS18 Collection - Style 4014

Sincerity Bridal SS18 Collection

Romance is what the Sincerity Bridal SS18 collection is all about. An illusion neckline here, a plunging back there… Take a look at Sincerity’s most romantic collection yet and feel those butterflies flutter.

Fit for a princess, the dresses in the Spring/Summer 2018 Sincerity Bridal collection are what dreams are made of. There are incredible classic silhouettes for traditional brides, and modern, clean styles for those a little bolder. If you want to be a little daring, the SS18 collection includes some sexy illusion backs and deep V-necklines which will show a hint of your décolletage; skin is in!

Sincerity Bridal SS18 Collection - Style 4014

One of the features I love most about the new Sincerity Bridal wedding dresses is the amount of lace; lots and lots of lace. Intricate lace bodices, illusion lace backs, and all-over lace dresses; this trend is perfect for brides who dream of romance.

A lot of the beautiful styles in the Sincerity Bridal SS18 collection have extras that give the dress an alternative look. If you love one of the strapless dresses but don’t want your arms to be completely on show then there are adorable detachable sleeves. Fancy a train on your slinky number? Again, there are a number of detachable trains available. These extras allow you to mix and match to create your very own personal bridal style – just what every bride wants.

I found it so hard to choose my favourites in this collection but I think I’m just about there…

Style 4002 – V-Neck Fit and Flare Gown with Spaghetti Straps

Romance lives on in this crepe fit and flare wedding dress. Embroidered lace covers the sweetheart bodice and floats down the skirt of the 4002 dress. The spaghetti straps accent the soft V-back with cute button detail, and the scalloped embroidered hem really finishes the look from head to toe.

With the dresses in the Justin Alexander Signature Spring/Summer 2018 collection you can be as dramatic as your dare, with extravagant skirt details and modern sleek seaming.

Sienna Von Hildemar 2018 Bridal Collection - Florence Dress

Sienna Von Hildemar 2018 Bridal Collection

I’m so excited to share the Sienna Von Hildemar 2018 collection. It’s the very first bridal collection from the incredibly talented designer, and wow… what an enchanting collection it is!

Sienna previously created only bespoke gowns, but following her time working in both the Australian and London fashion industry, experiences shopping for wedding dresses with bride to be friends drew Sienna into the world of bridal wear. With over 15 years experience working in fashion, Sienna harnesses lifelong creativity and a passion for delicate fabrics and intricate embellishment techniques.

Sienna Von Hildemar 2018 Bridal Collection - Florence Dress

The wedding dresses in the Sienna Von Hildemar 2018 collection are dresses to cherish, inspired by comfort and designed for modern, romantic brides. Made in the softest, luxurious silk fabrics, these gowns and two-piece outfits are hand finished with simple but intricate details. Hand beaded designs and lace appliqué, the Sienna Von Hildemar signature, gives each piece the unique brand style.

Dresses use clean lines and simple, flattering shapes without being overly structured and restricting. With dress linings made in the same quality silk as the outside, not only do they look beautiful but the feeling of the soft silk against your skin allows you to feel the luxury you can see.

The 2018 collection is available through appointments at the West London studio. Sienna Von Hildemar offers both Made-to-Measure and Made-to-Measure ‘Create’ services. Made individually in London, following a fitting where brides try on a base size, gowns are then made to the bride’s measurements. The Made-to-Measure Create service allows for variations of details such as the beadwork and lace detailing, for a more unique gown.

My favourite styles from the Sienna Von Hildemar 2018 collection are…

So sultry! Bella has a real 1940’s look about it. The sexy satin that gathers at the bottom of the plunging neckline looks stunning. I adore the high neck at the back of the dress and the deep cuffs of the sleeves with their cute button details.
