Wedding Ideas heads to the capital for the fantastic annual event White Gallery, a bridal trade show where designers showcase their latest collections. Jewellery, millinery, dresses and everything in between.
Annie our online editor and Bethan our junior designer were also lucky enough to be invited to the preview of Ian Stuart’s 2017 bridal collection. Westminster was the setting of this beautiful historic building named Blewcoat. 27 dresses were displayed on a catwalk with models twirling, strutting and moving to show off the collection at it’s best. They also got the pleasure of meeting and chatting to Ian Stuart after the show to congratulate him on a stunning collection, well put together show and thanking him for the personal invite.
Tubes and a shuttle bus journey later they arrived at Battersea Park home of this years White Gallery. Starting with the Alan Hannah fashion show – Bethan and Annie were wowed by his 2017 collection full of capes, layers and textures!
They moved on to the individual stands meeting friendly-faces of Charlotte Balbier, Ivory&Co, Muscat Bridal, Charlotte Mills, Harriet Wilde, Alan Hannah and many many more. Pictures of their latest collections of dresses, shoes and jewellery were taken and even a selfie with Kevin Muscat himself!
The last event on the itinerary of the London weekend was the British Talents catwalk! Once again the designers knocked it out of the park with a fantastic show; the music and lighting chosen only added to the both fun and ethereal atmosphere that was created. Keep an eye out for tons of inspiration as we reveal BIG styles to look out for from the designers we LOVE and their flourishing collections for this year and the next!
