I love discussing trends, especially when it relates to the wedding or fashion business. Trends come and go and they are usually born when certain events occur, like Meghan Markle's wedding, or David Attenborough's documentaries.
So here are my top 7 fashion trends for 2019
1. Colour impact. The colour of the year is coral, and this will be seen on bridal wear, I love to add colour into a wedding dress either by dip dye pieces or as an underlay.
2. Sparkle. Sparkly fabrics are starting to dazzle any wedding, there will sparkly dresses in my 2020 collection........ keep an eye out!
3. Clean cut dresses with wow details like low backs, slits or plunging necklines. It is the Megan Markle effect but but with a twist. I have to say I love a low back, or any details that stand out, or make that extra wow factor. In my new collection 'Rainforest's of the Sea' my 'Royal Star' is a clean cut wedding dress with a sexy low back, designed for brides to be noticed. I have also made subtle flared sleeves, and a small slit at the front.
4. Major over the top sleeves. Would you go for major big sleeve design for your wedding day? This is a trend and Vera Wang does it so well, well done to those that will wear anything outrageous on their arms. Here is my 'Cornflower' bridal separate that has subtle off the shoulder sleeves.
