We have a fabulous Friday treat in store for you today, as we’re taking a look at the stunning 2018 collection from our Sponsor and top British bridal designer, Caroline Castigliano.
We’ve long been fans of Caroline’s instantly-recognisable gowns which feature expert corsetry and classic lines for a cut and fit like no other. Thinking beyond the aesthetics, Caroline takes into consideration the architecture and movement of a dress to ensure a wow-worthy moment when the bride makes her entrance.
And yet again we’ve fallen head over heels for her latest collection, Celebrating Romance, which we shot as an exclusive for issue 09 of UNVEILED and that we are also sharing with you today. Romantic, elegant and sensual these gowns give us all the feels! There is a shape and style for all and we love Caroline’s talent in combining classic beauty with on-trend fashion elements.
So let’s hear more from the designer herself on what Celebrating Romance has in store for you lucky brides-to-be…
Can you give us a brief overview of the 2018 Celebrating Romance Collection?
caroline says: The 2018 Celebrating Romance collection features timeless designs with ultra-feminine twists, elevated textures and highly luxurious accents.
There is a light airy feel throughout the collection, with a range of silhouettes from A-line, to circle skirts and fishtails, all creating beautiful movement and a powerful but understated vision.
I have continued to build the collection around our structure and corsetry so even in the most effortless gown there is a secret hidden structure.
Where did you draw inspiration from for the collection?
The inspiration for Celebrating Romance was ultra-feminine gowns – very fluid, I just wanted to create gowns that feel light and airy but create shape and power – the collection needed to be sensual and playful yet only suggestive.
I get inspired by fashion and pick different elements that are in vogue and create these along with my signature look of classic lines – this really inspires me and keeps me excited.
Can you tell us a little about the fabrics and colourways included in the collection?
The main fabrics are guipure lace, Chantilly lace, silk georgette, satin faced organza, crepe and Mikado.
The collection comes in a colour palette of ivory with soft water colours and hints of nude foundations.
In My Dreams
Similarly, what details feature within the collection?
I have a number of unique features in the collection, there is a lot of layering – this creates a beautiful texture and 3D depth. I have continued with our unique stretch corset that is to die for, not only does this corset fit well but it is really comfortable. There are also new necklines – along with skirt silhouettes.
Do you have a favourite design from the collection?
My favourite gown from the new collection is Monarchy. It has a deep sweetheart neckline and I’ve moulded beautiful beaded guipure lace over the bodice, with lace trickling down the silk organza skirt.
What type of bride would the 2018 collection appeal to?
The Caroline Castigliano bride is into style, she understands fashion but is not ruled by it, she is passionate about quality and loves effortless glamour.
