Bridal Fashion Trends 2016

Our Favourite Trends For This Bridal Fashion Season

From May 15th-17th, Freya Rose exhibited her exclusive 2 new collections for 2017 at the White Gallery in Battersea; ‘Castello’ and Ready to Wear 2017.  The Freya Rose team had a thoroughly wonderful time lusting over the sumptuous styles that will be sure to be very popular this bridal fashion season and swooning over the beautiful gowns that graced the cat walks! We thought that we would share with you the bridal trends that stood out the most to us and of course that would compliment best our opulent Freya Rose designs.

Illusion bodice

The illusion bodice has been a popular fashion trend for some time now, crossing over in to bridal fashion for a more alluring appeal. We love how this trend accentuates the 3D floral appliques and embroidery, showcasing the extremely precise attention to detail. This precision is an element also synonymous with the Freya Rose brand and one which we favour above all when creating our beautiful shoes and accessories.

Champagnes and Blushes

The champagne was flowing at The White Gallery, and we don’t just mean the alcohol! Champagne and blushes were the colours of the season, a bridal fashion trend that the Freya Rose team can get on board with considering our latest collection. The Castello Collection hosts 10 sumptuous silhouettes; exhibiting vibrant pops of colour to soft metallic, champagne and rose golds, and will be coming soon! Watch this space…

Broderie Anglaise

Broderie Anglaise (translation: English embroidery) was first popularised in the 19th Century and consists of white work (white thread on white fabric) being lovingly traced in to a beautiful design on to a repeated pattern of woven cloth.  Each hole is made utilising a sharp pointed tool and smaller holes are created by the stretching of gaps between the threads and fabric. We were swooning over these delightful dresses that definitely complimented this trend.

Irregular Hems

Irregular hems have been popular in both ready to wear and bridal fashion this season and we adore this daring alteration to the classic bridal gown. We feel that these innovative designs will be flying out of the designer show rooms.

Low backs

Again, revealing a little more than usual, the low back or backless gowns are highly popular with designers this season, proving that exposing skin can still look elegant. This style is often complimented by embellishments or chiffon to create a more romantic and opulent appeal.

Florals

Florals have and always will be a top choice for bridal fashion. This bridal fashion season, we saw the more classical florals incorporated in to luxury lace and also in to more daring and unconventional styles; exuding sophistication and confidence.

As previously mentioned, floral was also showcased in the form of 3D appliques. Showing us just how amazing this bridal fashion trend can look, we were over the moon to see Caroline Castigliano and her ‘piece de resistance’ – The Freya dress! This beautiful gown with its lace cross back and v neck front design with floral applique can do no wrong in our eyes.
