The inspiration for this collection comes from the theme A Passage to India – the famous E. M Forster book which conjours the excitement of the era of exploration, adventure and an exotic romanticism. There are Edwardian influences and a richness to the crystal embellishments which enhance the palette of soft, delicate colours ; blush, palest pink, platinum pearl and warm cream. Sarah Bussey – the head designed at Ivory & Co. sums up the collection… Vintage tiara

Brides are looking for a softer more feminine look moving into 2016 and fabrics are more important than ever with a trend for flowing fine silks. This collection is my favourite to date as it allows brides that floaty contemporary look with a nod to the exotic elements of a long gone era of romantic adventure.” Dreams
