THURSDAY THREADS – CIRCA VINTAGE BRIDES

Thursday May 24 2012.

I always enjoy meeting designers and attempting to understand their methodology.  In the Wedding Industry they are an enlivening and diverse bunch, Astral Sundholm-Hayes is one who keeps her head buried in the history books and is simply lovely to be around.  Astral’s label Circa Vintage Brides is the result of a life long passion for vintage clothing sparked by days spent playing dress up in her mother’s London Vintage store.

The new 2012/2013 Silhouette Collection from Circa Vintage Brides is, as the name denotes, designed to create shapes that exquisitely flatter the female form.  Astral has used her cutting skills to focus on strong lines and delicate details that outline a contemporary edge for today’s brides.  Here are some of my favourites…

The Lizzie has a contemporary edge and this season’s must have dipped hem.

The Eddie dress is my favourite from the new Circa Vintage Brides collection, you can’t beat a slinky silk silhouette.
