Tuesday’s are just the worst day of the whole week, aren’t they? I’m hoping this big fat dose of eye candy by Brides Up North favourite Sassi Holford brightens the mood. After all, who on earth can stay grumpy in the face of such pretty?!
And the best news? All Sassi’s 2014 Signature Collection is landing in wedding dress boutiques near you, right now.
Sassi Holford works with absolute attention to detail and an uncompromising eye for quality, and each season her collections are individual yet balanced, focussed yet inspiring.
The 2014 Collection defines classic elegance, achieving this with dramatic silhouettes and exquisite fabrics.
The design emphasis is on femininity: for the bodice the key lines are the elegant portrait neckline and bustier detailing. Many of the gowns offer coverage on the shoulders and arms as the trend away from strapless continues. Silhouettes should be designed to make a statement – from an impressive ball gown to a flattering column skirt with fluted hem.
During the year Sassi visits European fabric fairs and this season sees her working with a range of impressive textured fabrics in combination with soft, floating fabrics such as fine lace and embroidered tulle.
Catrina & Georgina Jacket
Sassi says: My 2014 Sassi Holford Signature Collection was conceived around my notion of modern elegance but emphasised with dramatic silhouettes and tactile fabrics. To achieve this I have consciously moved away from traditional laces to unusual, feminine laces and combined them with delicate tulles and chiffons. Though some designs are elegantly simple and rest on the perfection of their lines, I adore the styles that are exquisitely embellished with laser cut fabrics and 3D textures.This season my necklines are more demure, but contrast beautifully with a number of dramatic but feminine deep V backs (a detail that I’m particularly enamoured with at the moment).
My primary concern is to make the female form look truly fabulous. My brides are elegant, feminine and romantic. All my designs are available in the standard size range of 8 to 18 but they can also be ordered in a size smaller or up to size 28 if required.
Ida & Beatrice Belt
My gowns are handmade in Somerset by my wonderfully skilled team, and the integral corset that we put in each gown creates a beautifully streamlined silhouette and ensures a high level of comfort for the bride on her big day.
Jessica & Jemima Coat
My signature piece would be Jessica from my Signature Collection – the dress alone is a stunning silk crepe column design but it can be worn with a jacket and a sash, just a sash – just a jacket. The different looks that you can create with this dress, for a bride, are almost endless and whilst simple, they’re all so effective.
