I predict the continuation of the trend for natural fibre fabrics, there’s a move away from synthetics and shiny static polyesters to pure silks which look and feel luxurious and classy. Silk chiffon and soft silk crepe are the most popular.
This trend is gaining momentum as brides are looking for ways to express their individuality and reflect their personality. They no longer want to be wearing the same dress design as their friend. They are using resources like Pinterest and Instagram to gain inspiration and ideas, this is then put to designers to sketch and create the perfect dream dress. By 2019, brides will be searching for skilled bridal designers to make their dream dress.
The idea that a bride wants to feel like her figure is being shown to its best and gives a flattering line, this will see the demand for structured bodices with boning and firm interlinings. These will skim and flatter to conceal the difficult areas and give a dramatic hourglass figure. This give the bride confidence to know she is looking the best version of herself. <
This includes the move towards gowns with a short hemline at the front and a long train to follow from behind. Complete with dramatic folds in the skirt to give movement and drama are set to be a popular look for brides. This makes navigating around the venue easy and the option to splash out on a pair of beautiful shoes for all the world to see!
Not every bride wants an ivory gown, this growing trend to express your individuality and be unique has given the option to marry in any colour of the rainbow. The demand for white has trebled and with dresses being offered in any one of over 150 colours who can blame them ! How perfect to have a dress in a colour you’re able to wear again, maybe on your first anniversary?
