Headdresses at London Fashion Weekend 2013
11 March 2013
Today's blog is from Louise who shares her reflections on the trends from the recent London Fashion Weekend catwalk show.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to take some photos from the photographer's pit at London Fashion Weekend on 23rd February. It was a great chance to see current catwalk trends which will have an influence on bridal styles this season.
There were four runs; Graphic Art, Urban Lifestyle, Eastern Promise and Dolls House. Each run focused on a different trend, which as we all know will not just be reflected in our wardrobes, but also in bridal trends and wider popular culture.
The Eastern Promise and Dolls House trends incorporated some beautiful headdresses, which included key features that our designers have already included in the current Richard Designs bridal collection. The draping crystals and pearls that come over the forehead are a key upcoming trend in bridal this season.
Our hair jewellery is an easy way to incorporate this trend, and works well with delicate clear crystal and lustrous pearls.
Floral decoration was abundant, with large colourful silk flowers moulded into stunning headdresses.To bring this trend to bridal, try ivory flowers in your hair for your wedding, with a touch of silver crystal or pearl.
This headdress was one of my favourites, with a regal display of flowers, and draping beads, all framed with a shimmering gold fringe.
This style incorporates several of bridal's most important current trends. There is a subtle lace border for the flowers and backdrop for the draping pearls, and the flowers also hold hidden treasures, with crystals and brooches added in around the headdress. This highlights how important vintage brooch detailing still is, and this is also true in bridal.
Statement feather headdresses were featured in the Dolls House run, adding movement and fluidity to the look. Stunning soft feathers can be incorporated into a bridal look for a contemporary, yet vintage feel.
This flower fascinator with birdcage veil is a beautiful statement. Our most popular fascinator in the current collection, F224, takes this striking catwalk looks and gives it a sophisticated, demure bridal edge.
And finally, we can see that bows are still important this season. This stunning dress adorned with satin ribbon bows was a true statement that bows are still big. To incorporate bows into your bridal outfit, try our fun, short, bow wedding veil.
I hope that you have enjoyed looking at the photos from London Fashion Weekend, I certainly had fun taking them!
