Thursday July 14 2011.


This week’s Thursday Threads focuses on the UK’s foremost award-winning bridal fashion designers Stephanie Allin whose designs offer something for every type of bride and every shape.  Stephanie’s talent for perfect fitting gowns has been refined over her 20years in the Bridal fashion industry.  With such a long career you would expect Stephanie Allin designs to be described as ‘classic’ and ‘timeless’ although both these attributes are true, they are modern classics for trendy savvy brides. 

My Bijou edit of the upcoming 2012 Collection below…

Wonderfully romantic, the structured bodice will flatter any shape

A sequined mermaid style wonder – very John Galliano worn with this feathered turban

My favourite dress from the 2012 collection featuring all the key trendslace shoulders, classic cuts and a duel transparent skirt and train.  Hearts.

To inspire you Bijou brides today I’ve looked to channel the Contemporary Elegance theme into this Style Board.  To me it is easily achieved when mixing oversized items with delicate accents which this Stephanie Allin dress does with its delicate leafy lace bodice and chunky square belt.  Pair the dress with an oversized bangle and an unique headband design versus a traditional veil.  Finally I just adore bright white mixed with champagne tones, how divine are these Topshop beauties and champagne hues flatter most skin tones which makes the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick worth its weight in gold.
