The wedding dress designers to watch

Being on trend is a top priority for many brides-to-be, with their dress choice a vital part of satisfying their fashion fix on the most important day of their lives. Bridal fashion weeks around the world offer endless inspiration for fashion conscious brides.

Whilst the runways are filled with ensembles from the best-known bridal designers, going for a lesser known or emerging brand is the way many stylish brides choose to go.

The latest bridal fashion weeks offer plenty of food for thought for brides searching for the perfect designer look. We reveal the designers to watch out for when sifting through those wedding dress trend reports in pursuit of ‘the one’.

Naeem Khan

We wouldn’t describe NYC-based fashion designer Naeem Khan as emerging. Naeem Khan’s ready to wear creations and accessories are regularly worn by celebrities and royalty.

The Duchess of Sussex accessorised with Khan’s glamorous zodiac clutch for the Queen’s 92nd birthday party recently. Yet it’s still not a name you’d automatically think of when shopping for a wedding dress.

Khan’s latest wedding looks are also proving popular. His fall collection rivals the best known bridal designers in terms of sparkle and drama. Khan’s current collection features quirky silhouettes and textures that ensure a very different look for brides who want to stand out even more on their wedding day. Khan’s hooded overdress, with dolman sleeves is a particular favourite.

Emily Victoria White

From her studio in Hertfordshire, Emily Victoria White creates a number of stunning bridal looks that put texture and elegance centre stage. Emily’s love of garment craftsmanship certainly shows with her use of materials, and attention to detail shining through. Her latest collection is made for the fashion forward bride.

Those looking for something extra special may want to visit Emily’s studio direct where she designs bespoke bridal wear from scratch based on your exact vision.

Halfpenny London

Known for creating looks that embrace Brit cool and use luxury fabrics, Halfpenny London is becoming increasingly known for its exquisite bridal wear. Led by designer Kate Halfpenny, the brand proudly crafts modern and eye-catching wedding looks in England before they’re worn by brides around the globe.

Halfpenny’s latest collection capitalises on the brand’s love of luxe. Gowns sport intricate embroidery, delicate beading, and lavish silks. Their collection features a series of feathered numbers, which is a key look for 2019 as Absolutely Weddings explains:

“Feather effects are big and bold in 2019, with many more designers opting for a bird of paradise trim. Sassi Holford even showed a full feathered skirt on a standout ballgown. We love this ebullient trend for its sense of fun, and also because it adds movement and froth to dress up even the simplest design and ensure all eyes are on the bride.”

Amy Mair Couture

Amy Mair Couture started her label just a few years ago making her the newest bridal wear designer in our line-up. The Cardiff-based designer offers no shortage of powerful looks, with many inspired by nature and exuding bohemian charm. Subtle glamour is certainly the call of the day with her latest bridal collection, whilst her haute couture and bespoke creations go one step further in terms of style and structure.
