Without doubt, the essence of a Sassi Holford gown is timeless elegance

Up for a bit of weekend wedding dress gazing?  Thought as much.

I’ve met the lovely Sassi Holford and her fabulous team on a few occasions (managing not to faint in the presence of such design greatness) and this is a lady who truly cares about your bridal style.  When the team got in touch with their preview of Sassi’s 2013 Signature Collection I couldn’t get that email opened fast enough.

.

I wasn’t disappointed.  Enjoy, and have a lovely weekend, wherever yours takes you.  Spot of dress shopping anyone?

.

I know you too well.

The team say: For her 2013 Signature Collection Sassi has returned to the 1940s for fabrics that are unashamedly romantic and very much about luxurious texture, such as slipper satin, vintage lace and silk georgette. 3D guipure lace and appliqué detailing add a very modern visual focus.

Soft sweetheart is the key neckline with eye-catching straps and flattering, fitted bodices creating impact. Skirt shapes also have to be dramatic, drawing inspiration from classic Hollywood glamour for silhouettes that emphasise the beauty of the female figure.

The re-emergence of the statement fashion accessory, such as hair pieces and costume jewellery, has been translated by Sassi into feature detailing. She uses belts, bows and tails enhanced by diamanté appliqué and brooches to give her clients the perfect finishing statement.
