Renowned UK designer Johanna Hehir is heading for stateside success following her debut at the New York Bridal Market with her new (and clearly New York inspired) Central Park West Collection.

Taking inspiration from early 20th Century images and Hollywood style icons to me the collection conjures up thoughts of Wallace Simpson, vintage champagne towers and Downton Abbey but take a look at this rather glam video showcase of Johanna Hehir’s Central Park West collection and let me know what you think.

No matter the collection Johanna Hehir’s wedding gowns channel her signature style – clean lines, unfussy styles and classic cuts in the finest European silk and lace.  My Bijou highlights from the 2012 Central Park West Collection are below.

When designing the collection Johanna Hehir pictured the “individual bride who knows her own style and mind” which sounds just like you, my Bijou readers.  Here’s my style edit for getting that vintage inspired Johanna Hehir bridal look on your wedding day.Johanna Hehir Wedding dress
