Established by designer Sophie Creed, E&W is a couture company committed to offering something a little different for the alternative personality. They have been making a name for themselves creating elegant, flattering and fashion forward wedding dress designs and the new 2016 Spotlight Collection stays true to form.
With a continuity of delicate polka dots throughout, the new collection offers a fresh and relaxed vibe to bridal and are made up of a mix of dresses and separates. The polka dots are paired with tulles and soft laces in a range of tonal colours.
The collection comprises five dresses; Thea, Nora, Nieve, Frankie and Cecile. There is a look to suit everyone.
For luxury look no further than Thea. A couture silk taffeta gown with mixed size flocked polka dot tulle overlay, she has an extravagant, traditional look with an alternative twist.
Nora offers a mix of traditional and unusual. With a sheer bodice and full skirt, the full length duchess satin gown can be made with optional pockets.
Nieve is an understated, relaxed gown with a whimsical, layered tulle skirt and open back. The top is made from polka dot tulle and has dropped shoulder short sleeves with t-shirt style turn backs.
For the Bride oozing French chic style there’s Frankie. A quirky two-piece outfit she has a loose crop and high waisted skirt. The crop is a soft satin pull on t-shirt style top.
Last but by no means least is Cecile. She has an informal sheer dress with a playful full length soft polka dot floaty skirt. The skirt is a full circle cut with the top being a blousy fit, pulled in with petersham waist tie.
Stocked exclusively in Wales at the Rachel Burgess Bridal Boutique, Penarth, pieces of the new collection will be available to mix and match over alternative coloured slips, giving the gowns a different feel and allowing Brides to have more choice in what they wear.
