This time you have already seen the official photos ( click here if you haven’t… ) so it is about time i posted about the designs and the dresses – and as always i will provide sample pricing too.
Our Autumn collection was all about Victorian and Steampunk – with some pre-Raphaelite inspirations too. we were fortunate to secure the stunning Coombe Abbey for the shoot – and its ambiance was perfect for the Victorian designs.
And so, without further ado, let us meet the dresses.
Here simplicity and elegance was the key. A mixture of 18th century silhouette and Victorian aesthetics resulted in simple lines and sparse decoration. The skirt in satin is worn over a big crinoline; the jacket in silk, lined with brocade, is fitted, laying smoothly over the corset worn underneath. I must admit i like the jacket a lot – and will most likely keep it for myself – would look great with jeans!
The design can be re-created in any color scheme and customized with decorative items. Skirt and jacket would start from £600, depending on the fabrics. Bridal corsetry from £300.
Our Steampunk Bride wears a skirt with lots of ruffled lace and tulle, a tight-lacing corset in satin, bound in silk and decorated with flossing and crystals. on top, a short bolero jacket in matching fabric. The whole outfit suitable not only for a wedding but for any other less formal occasion. This design starts from £ 500 – and this particular outfit, is currently offered on sale at a greatly reduced price as a previously worn item – please inquire!
Lizzie rocked the whole ensemble!
Probably the most autumnal of all the designs, Ceridwen consists of a satin skirt worn over a hooped petticoat, and a silk overskirt with an apron front. the skirt at the back can be left flowing or bustled up. corset is made in matching silk and sports gold metallic lace decoration. Can be commissioned in any colour combination – prices start from £800.
Victorian fashions really have come into the play with this one – based on the Natural Form Era designs, Constance is worn over proper Victorian underpinnings – bustle and corset. The skirt flows down in froth of white lace, providing a perfect backdrop for the smooth, shiny satin overskirt and bodice. The veil completes the look of the Victorian Bride. prices start from £800; £1200 including the underpinnings.
A gown reflecting the Pre-Raphaelite fascination with the Middle Ages – 12 underbust corset in silk.style dress in flowing satin is simple but very effective. Lace cloak adds to the bridal image, and the gown itself can be work with a decorative girdle or with an underbust corset.
Prices start from £700
6. The Goth Bride.
No design here as this one was a bonus frock – still, it matches the collection perfectly. Again, Victorian silhouette, as the gown is worn over a bustle cage, petticoats and corset – the bodice, skirt and overskirt in rich colour add a distinctive Gothic flavour to the outfit.
Prices start from £500 not including the underpinnings.
and that’s about it and that’s also the last collection of the year – we have done 4 seasons!
