First Look: Charlotte Balbier’s 2015 Iscoyd Park Collection

April 17th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Charlotte Balbier by Christopher Dadey at White Gallery

I’m really happy to welcome my lovely industry friend and colleague Charlotte Balbier to the wedding blog this morning, as I give you a sneak peek at her beautiful 2015 Collection, straight from the catwalk at last week’s White Gallery.

I’ve known Charlotte for some years now, and spent a little time with the lady herself and her lovely Mum, the fabulously talented Amanda Wyatt, on their stand at the show, watching as Charlotte unveiled her new line to assembled buyers and press.  I can absolutely vouch for this:  This is a designer who really cares.  A lot of heart goes into each and every Charlotte Balbier design, and she positively glowed as she swirled and showed her designs to the audience and discussed what made each and every one unique and special. 

And glow she might, for the new collection is an absolute triumph. 

Charlotte, you should be very proud.  Brides Up North, they’ll be landing in a stockist near you soon. Yippee!

The collection was designed in celebration of Charlotte and her new husband Teddy’s 2014 wedding day and is inspired by the historical and traditional setting of Iscoyd Park.  2015 marks eleven years for Charlotte at the forefront of British Bridal design, a truly amazing decade as one of the UK’s leading bridal designers.

The Iscoyd Park Collection is made up of over twenty gorgeous gowns in an array of styles, and delightfully includes two of Charlotte’s own wedding gowns, named ‘Charlotte’ and ‘Iscoyd Park.’ Charlotte’s designs inherently traditional but with that added extra twist for a modern gown.

The 2014 collection, ‘A Decade of Style’ won the Wedding Ideas Magazine ‘Designer Of The year’ award and this year is all set to become Charlotte’s most successful year to date with exciting plans and collaborations ahead.  Go girl!

Dancing Through A World Of Inspiration. First Look: Ian Stuart Bride 2015 On The Catwalk

April 10th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Christopher Dadey for Ian Stuart at White Gallery 2014

Of all the shows the Brides Up North team were privileged to attend this week at White Gallery, Ian Stuart Bride stood out for it’s energy, creativity and sense of theatre. 

This man isn’t just a designer, he’s an artist and entertainer. 

This is just a sneak peek at the first five looks that made it down the catwalk this weekend, with the rest to be revealed soon.  I can’t wait to share the 2015 look book with you shortly. 

Christopher Dadey for Ian Stuart at White Gallery 2014

Ian Stuart describes his life as dancing through a world of inspiration.  Looking through artistic eyes, he searches for moments and images of beauty each day.

Gathering these and channelling them into beautiful gowns, he creates wedding dresses that are a unique reflection of nature, music, history, architecture and humanity, each design has its own story to tell.  Within the diversity of inspiration, touches of Elizabethan, art deco and bohemian stand out, creating a spirit for 2015 that is angelic, quirky and statuesque.

Luxurious fabrics and colours help to tie all essences of the collection together, but most of all, it is the unmistakable handwriting of Ian Stuart that is conveyed as the premier trend.

Excusive! First Look: Alan Hannah 2015 Bridal Collections On The Catwalk

April 9th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Alan Hannah 2015 by Christopher Dadey at White Gallery London

Its been a bit of a haute couture week at Brides Up North HQ.  We’ve been at White Gallery London checking out the brand new bridal wear collections from the big names in the wedding dress industry and are really excited to bring you some exclusive catwalk previews direct from the event over the next few days.  Fast fashion or what?!

I’m obsessed with Alan Hannah’s beautiful gowns, and actually wore one of Marguerite’s creations for my own wedding back in 2010 (the dress was called All The Jazz and was a blush duchess satin… swoon), so it makes sense to open play on these pages by debuting their label’s exciting 2015 collections first.

Alan Hannah 2015 by Christopher Dadey at White Gallery London

For their main line, as well as the perfect couture cut and execution Marguerite has some really lovely new embellishment ideas including hand painted flowers and striking textured beading.  The MiaMia line is full of verve and panache with beautiful lace and dramatic skirts with theatrical detailing.  For me, there’s something to delight every bride here – soft sparkle, lovely lace, swishing satins, structured silks and contemporary twists, but always with an integral elegance and flair. 

And to top it all off?  All Alan Hannah’s gowns are designed and made in England.  You know we like things home grown at Brides Up North!

^^^Editor’s pick: this blush satin gown with chiffon skirts and crystal belt detail is to die for^^^

One For The Cool Girls. Introducing Brand New Bridal Label Maria Senvo & “The Fifteen Collection”

February 7th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Rye & Joy

It’s only February 2014, but already the invitations to view the biggest bridal houses’ 2015 collections have started to roll in here at Brides Up North HQ, and we are excitedly marking some special dates in our office diary.  Last year we brought you our Designer Series of interviews with some of the most recognised names in the industry, and are looking forward to doing the same again later this spring. 

You know me though, I like to keep things fresh, mixed up and interesting – and that’s why alongside the established designers I also like to keep my readers abridged of the hottest happenings in bridal couture, the newest labels on the scene and also laud the work of talented, smaller, independent designers.

Asana

So when the lovely Holly Cuthbert of brand new label Maria Senvo contacted me to show off her inaugural collection, I couldn’t wait to share it with the rest of you.  Coming soon to a bridal boutique (and some of the Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibitions!) near you, let’s meet the lady behind the designs. 

Rye & Joy

Please introduce Maria Senvo and tell us a little about your brand?

The label has been set up by me and my partner Ryan, so we have both a male and female influence on the designs which we think is what makes them so unique. Our first collection launches this month, alongside the website and we also have some exciting events coming up over the coming months.  Our first one coincides with London Fashion Week and is the invitation only launch of the label. We are super busy planning at the moment but it’s set to be great!

Bo

What is your style philosophy?

Stay true to yourself and don’t be afraid to be different. Many brides are taking their day to day style and working this into their big day looks to be individual and stylised. Gone are the days where brides wear what is expected of them… be bold.

Asana

Tell us about the new collection by Maria Senvo?

We always say… “If you’re a cool girl and your am to pm wardrobe is simple, paired down and effortless, what do you then wear to get married in?”

That bride – someone not unlike ourselves we think – really is the inspiration for each and every design. The aim always was to master that elusive paired down aesthetic with just the right amount of glamour.  As well as the bride herself the inspirations are endless from art, culture and modernism, even the campaign taster shot at a British sculpture park oozes an essence of what the brand is really about; creating what we hope really is a striking new presence in a somewhat traditional industry.

Bo

What fabrics and embellishments were chosen for the new collection and why?

Intricate beaded bodies, elongated lines and pleats adorn the collection that when turned around reveal scoop detail backs and razor sharp features. The collection is designed with a new generation bride in mind who is looking for something a little different from her gown. Each is handmade and hand beaded and feels amazing to wear! The fabrics range from silks to crepe chiffon and everything in between.

Joy

Do you have a personal favourite from the new collection?  Which piece and why?

We both have our favourites for different reasons! Mine (Holly) is the Joy gown as it’s the first gown we designed and also happens to be one of the favourites with our brides so far. Ryan loves the Edith gown as the shape is so different to anything else out there and the heavy lace teamed with the soft crepe looks elegantly stylish.

Rye & Joy

What accessories would you pair with pieces from your new collection? 

For our campaign shoot we used pieces from the latest Indian Summer collection from Flo & Percy. We love the style of their accessories and they complement our gowns perfectly. A lot of our boutiques also hand make bespoke accessories to match our gowns which is a gorgeous little addition when shopping for a Maria Senvo gown.

Rye

What beauty look would complement the pieces in your new collection?

Our own style is very paired down and somewhat European so we love the effortless looks that look less bridal and more day to day. On the shoot our makeup and hair stylist scooped hair into high ponytails or brushed long length hair back off the models face… paired with neutral eyes (add a little subtle false lash for definition) and a pop of colour on the lip to take your big day look from am to pm.

Asana

Do you have a “signature” piece?

We definitely have a signature look running through the collection – spot it for yourselves?

How do you decide on the “names” for your gowns?

The name of the collection ‘The Fifteen Collection’ is purely the year date of the collection.  As we designers are always a year ahead of ourselves this collection launches this month yet will be sold internationally as 2015 pieces. The dress names were a little more tricky, a lot of the dress names have a personal meaning to us be it names of family and friends or aims and achievements we have.

Rye

What sizes are available in your gowns? 

The gowns are size 6 – 22 but custom sizing is also available as each gown is handmade to order.

What is the retail price range for your designs?

The designs start at around £1,500 and range up to around £2,700 for our Swarovski custom gown.

Joy

What sets Maria Senvo apart from other bridal wear brands?

The designs mix a respect for the old with a flair for the new but what makes Maria Senvo unique is how we understand the woman inside our dress. Composed and sensual, she wants to be comfortable yet elegant, fashion forward but timeless.  The first collection is new and bold and altogether interesting for 2014, but to call us minimalists would be too simple. The seemingly uncomplicated pieces are stylish and on closer inspection, playful experiments in shapes and fabrics with a focus on the finer points in design, so that the inside of the garments are just as beautiful as the outside. Trust us – when stepped into they feel sensational!

Bo

Was there a defining point in your career that made your business the success that it is today?

As young entrepreneurs the biggest step so far was taking the leap and setting up the label – it really just keeps going from strength to strength and the reaction to the collection has been unbelievable.

What are your plans for the future?

At the moment we are concentrating on our UK launch and with London Fashion Week just 2 weeks away we are busy bees to say the least!

Rye & Joy

What would “a day in the life” at Maria Senvo HQ be like?

We have a studio which in every way encompasses the typical studio you would imagine – from moodboards to swatches it’s an organised chaos! Ryan is a real night owl and is constantly tapping away until the early hours most days. No two days are the same and we split our time between London and Manchester for many reasons, both cities have a great culture for design and both have wonderful support systems for new generation brands such as ourselves. Every day is vibrant. 

Rye

How can Brides Up North readers get in touch with you or see more of your designs?

Our new website launches this month housing some great features for brides like “create your own lookbook” and “request a sketch” and is a great spot to see more of our designs and keep up to date with all our events. We also love to hear from our brides to be direct through our social media. 

Joy

Do you have any Northern stockists – how can Brides Up North find them?

Yes! The lovely The Case Of The Curious Bride in Manchester is the exclusive stockist for the North and the boutique is a gorgeous hub of treats – with Melanie (the owner) also housing an abundance of accessories for brides to lust after alongside our debut collection. 

The Case Of The Curious Bride will be exhibiting at Brides Up North’s North West events this Spring.  Click here to add the dates to your diaries and see Maria Senvo’s beautiful new collection in person.

Fashion Forwards. Supplier Showcase: KMR Bridal PLUS A Gift For Wedding Blog Readers

January 3rd, 2014 | Julia Braime

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

 

If you are new to the blog, you’ll soon find out that we are pretty keen on our bridal fashion here on these pages.  Last year we ran an exclusive series of interviews debuting all our favourite designer’s new lines for 2014 (dresses that you’ll be trying on in your local bridal boutiques right now) – click here to catch up – and today I’m proud to introduce you to a hot new talent in bridal and Brides Up North Featured Supplier, Kelly of KMR Bridal

Kelly says:  Hi I’m Kelly, designer and owner of the brand and label KMR. I spent four years learning my craft at Sheffield Hallam University studying a Masters Degree in Fashion Design. Following the success of my graduate bridal collection ‘Forging Heritage’ and completion of my degree I started my own business and launched my label KMR Bridal. I am a contemporary bridal and occasion wear designer offering a bespoke service. Under the label KMR, I also produce my own collections and accessories which can be ordered and made to measure.

Let’s find out more, and watch out for a special offer exclusive to Brides Up North readers!

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

What is your design and style philosophy?

As a designer I have a strong design philosophy. I used skilled artistry and traditional construction techniques mixed with innovative fabrics and contemporary silhouettes. When it comes to style I believe that every woman has their own style and as a designer it is my job to ensure a bride not only looks glamorous on her big day but she is tempered with her own personality. I get to know all my brides and learn about their wedding day it helps ensure their dream wedding dress is created.

Tell us about your latest collection?

My graduate collection for Spring/ Summer 2014 is called ‘Forging Heritage.’ Studying in Sheffield increased my awareness of the local heritage of craftsmanship and the legacy it has created for the city today. The inspiration for my collection came from Sheffield; it had become the City I know and love and is now my home. From my time spent working in the bridal industry it became apparent that many wedding dresses today are manufactured abroad. As a designer I wanted to highlight this decline in craftsmanship in my collection and showcase British manufacturing and design. To do this I collaborated with a local craftsman, a Sheffield cutler who helped my design and manufacture some bespoke jewellery and accessories to compliment the garments in my collection. This worked well with my Sheffield theme. We recycled old cutlery to create some striking jewellery which would be suitable for the catwalk and styling for the shoot.

The aim of the collection was to highlight the decline of craftsmanship whilst informing a modern young bride to be sustainable and preserve cultural wedding traditions. I created a collection of pieces that have elements of jewellery/ metalwork that can be re-worn, treasured and passed down to future generations. Through emotional attachment between the bride and the collection piece the product’s legacy, family values and a sense of belonging will be strengthened. By creating this collection the aim was to solve the problems highlighted showcasing Sheffield’s past, present and future.

The colour palette was inspired by Sheffield’s heritage of silver plate, a metallic palette of silver shades, dirty lilacs, pale dove greys and off-whites.

The silhouettes are bold and offer a contemporary take on bridal wear challenging traditions with unconventional fabrics and colours. The fabrics allowed structure and creative panelling creating a clean defined look. I wanted to show brides that bridal wear can be considered fashion and can be challenged. Not every bride wants to look the same as the rest.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

Where do you look for inspiration?

I take inspiration from my surroundings, art, culture and travels. I am heavily influenced by Britain’s heritage, my time studying in Sheffield increased my awareness of its rich heritage and my entire graduation project and collection was based on this subject. As a society proud of our heritage, designers, artists and other creatives should regenerate the past, bring it to the present and ensure a continued legacy for the future.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

What sort of woman do you design for?

I design for women of all shapes and size and all ages. The brides I usually design for appreciate quality and craftsmanship and want a gown that is unique. Some women can’t find the dress they are looking for so come to me with lots of different design details from different dresses and I can then use them to create their dream dress. Some brides love the idea of being involved in the creative process and the journey of creating their own one-off gown which they can treasure, and remember forever. It’s a fantastic way to have complete control of your dress from the silhouette, shapes, colour, fabrics and detailing ensuring that the dress encapsulates their personality and their wedding day.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

What fabrics and embellishments do you prefer to work with?

I work with some fantastic British fabric suppliers and this is something I am particularly passionate about. This is part of my ethos to support other British businesses and I manufacture all my gowns in my own studio in Sheffield. I like to offer brides diversity and a wide range of choice when it comes to fabrics. It is an aspect of the creative process that the bride can heavily be involved in.

I like to show brides how they can create a unique gown using untraditional bridal fabrics to create contemporary silhouettes. For my graduate collection I used Japanese cow hide leather, embossed silver leather, silk habotai, satin cotton and a fine metal mesh. Silks and lace are a personal favourite and I love working with lace as there is so much scope to produce truly unique pieces. As a designer I appreciate a client’s budget and will work with them to ensure we select the best fabric to suit their design.

Embellishments can completely transform a wedding gown. As I create dresses of different styles for a diverse range of clients every dress is different. I love embellishing gowns adorned with beads, crystals, pearls, embroidery, ruffles, pleats, ribbon, bows crystal lace applique motifs and trims. Embellishments can personalise a wedding dress and can help create a completely unique design. Working with each bride I ensure each gown is detailed with ornate embellishments that sit together in perfect unison.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

Do you have a personal favourite from your collections?  Which piece and why?

My favourite piece from my graduate collection is the midi length white leather dress with long sleeves and a metal mesh panel down the front. The shape of the dress and the lines are so flattering on any shape. It received some great feedback at fashion shows this year not just as a contemporary wedding dress but as a fashion piece.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

Tell us about your bespoke design service?

I offer brides the opportunity to have a completely bespoke gown designed and handmade for them. I allow each client to be part of the design process creating a one-off bespoke gown that is made to measure. I work with each bride from start to finish ensuring their specifications are met considering, silhouettes, shape, style, fabric and colour. Working with every bride individually I ensure that the dress they have always wanted is created and made to the highest standard in my Sheffield studio.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

What beauty look or jewellery would complement your designs? Why?

As each gown is a one-off bespoke design the jewellery and beauty can be tailored to the individual client’s style and can reflect their wedding and personality. This ensures that their overall look reflects their vision of a dream wedding.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

How do you decide on the “names” for your designs and collections?

When deciding names for either a specific design or a collection, I reflect on the theme that has inspired that design.

What sizes are available in your designs?  Are all your pieces made to measure?

I have worked with brides of all shapes and sizes. I treat every client as an individual and none of my gowns are made to a generic size. All my designs are made to measure, to suit your shape and to fit you perfectly. It is so important that a dress fits a bride correctly to ensure their perfect day.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

What is the process for your clients from the first meeting to the final fitting?

I outline the couture process in five stages. Firstly I invite brides to a free consultation to meet me at my design studio which will focus on the bride’s specific requirements including silhouettes, shape, style, colour and fabrics. Following the consultation I will develop a range of designs to fit the bride’s specifications.

The second step is the design and selection, I invite the bride to visit my studio and select a final design and fabric allowing the bride to be part of the creative process. The third step is the toile fitting. The brides design will be made up as a calico toile for the bride to try on. I will fit the mock up gown and make any alterations or minor changes necessary before making the dress in the final fabric. This ensures the dress fits perfectly.

The fourth step is the dress fittings, the final fabric will be cut and the bride’s dress will begin to take shape. To ensure a perfect fit and to finalise finishing touches several fittings will take place ensuring the bride remains involved in the couture making process. The last step is the final fitting and once complete the bride can take the gown home and wear it with pride on their special day.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

What is the price range for your designs?

Bespoke wedding dress designs range from £900 upwards. As each gown is bespoke and made to measure prices vary with fabrics and complexity. Gowns usually take between 4-6 months to create although shorter deadlines can be achieved.

Do you design bridesmaid dresses or mother of the bride outfits?

Yes, under my label I also design and make outfits for weddings, special occasions, bridesmaid dresses, evening gowns, prom dresses, mother of the bride and groom.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

Do you design and make any accessories under your label?

I design and make handmade veils, bouquets, bespoke garters and accessories to compliment your gown.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

What sets KMR Bridal apart from other bridal wear brands, and you apart from other designers?

Unlike most bridal wear brands I offer a completely unique service. I allow you to work with me to create your dream wedding dress. There won’t be another bride wearing the same dress as you, as my designs are not mass produced and stocked in boutiques across the country. Many brides find they like various details from different dresses, for example the skirt of one dress and the sleeves from another. I can take details you like and put them into one dress, your dream dress. This gives brides the control to choose which silhouettes, shapes, colours, fabrics and styles they like to take their vision and make it a reality. Your dress will be tailored to fit you and your body, made to measure. You can walk down the aisle in a truly unique gown.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

Do you have a “signature” piece?

I would consider my signature piece to be a guipure lace and crepe gown which I made a few years ago for a past collection. This dress has been a favourite of clients and has been adapted to suit their specifications. The keyhole back, lace heart shaped bodice and crepe skirt with lace train was inspired by 1950’s Hollywood. The dress has an elegant and sophisticated appeal and has always remained a personal favourite.

How did you get into wedding dress design – what is your story?

At the age of sixteen I got my first Saturday job working in a fabric, haberdashery and bridal shop. This stepped me into the world of bridal and was a great job to support me during my A levels of which I studied Textiles. Following my A levels I went to study a Masters degree in Fashion design in Sheffield. During my four years on the course I learnt and developed my craft and specialised in bridal wear. Alongside my studies I produced bespoke wedding and bridesmaid dresses made to measure for clients. I also spent 9 months working at bridal design studio and boutique Tickled Pink Bridal working with the design team.

In my fourth year at University I entered a national competition sponsored by Bridal designer Ian Stuart and Susi Rogol of Bridal Buyer. I was selected as one of twelve finalists to manufacture my submitted design to be displayed at the British Bridal Exhibition in Harrogate. My design was showcased as one of the final six entrants on the catwalk at the awards ceremony. My graduate bridal collection was selected to open the universities fashion show, of which I was also awarded runner up prize in the Brightest Spark competition judged by Panache Lingerie. Upon leaving university I went to work for Sheffield based designer Nabil Nayal working on his Spring/ Summer 2014 collection and began to launch my own label and business.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

What are your plans for the future?

My ambition has always been to own business as a bridal designer. My time at university and in the industry has helped me reach my goal. Now I want to continue to help brides create their dream wedding gowns and grow my business.

Is this your dream career? 

Yes this is my dream career, I am so lucky to be doing the job I love! After studying for four years at University I knew that I wanted my own bridal label. I love the whole process of creating a bespoke gown for a client from the design to the making. The most rewarding aspect of my job is seeing a happy bride leave with her own handmade gown and then receiving gorgeous photos from her big day!

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

What would “a day in the life” at KMR Bridal HQ be like?

A creative and hectic one! I spend most my time in my studio sketching designs and making beautiful gowns, creating patterns, cutting out fabric and sewing.

Where do you go and what do you do to relax?

I enjoy spending time with my friends and my fiancé. We are now planning our own wedding so I never seem to have much time to relax. When I can though I enjoy reading and socialising with my friends, often going out for a lovely meal and a catch up!

What are your “best things” in life?

Family, friends and fashion. They are the most important things to me, they are my life and my work.

KMR Bridal - Forging Heritage Collection

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.

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).

Sassi Holford 2014 Emily

Emily

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.

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.

Sassi Holford 2014 Jessica & Jemima Coat

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.

Works Of Art. The Designer Series: Raimon Bundo

November 21st, 2013 | Julia Braime

Celine by Raimon Bundo

As I mentioned yesterday, this year I have been in the privileged position of obtaining access to all my favourite bridal designers for a series of exclusive interviews here on Brides Up North.  Now that the collections have landed in a boutique near you, I’ll be recapping the series daily on the Brides Up North Facebook page. Click here to like the page and stay updated – I’ll be giving you a sneak peek at their newest designs, sharing the inspirations behind the collections and giving you a glance into their (very beautiful) world.  Otherwise, you can search “Designer Series” here on the blog and get lost in the lovely right now. 

Today, it’s time to add one more talent to the party, as another of my favourites, Spanish designers Cristina and Ivonne of Raimon Bundo show off their 2014 collection.  So what do you think, have I saved the best till last?  I’d love to know your thoughts. 

Please introduce Raimon Bundo and tell us a little about your brand? 

Raimon Bundo is a family company based in Barcelona with over 40 years experience in the bridal industry. Everything is hand-made in Spain by a team of artisans who put lots of love into every dress. Designers Cristina and Ivonne create four very different collections per year but always share and promote the same values of quality, modernity and simplicity in everything they design. The collections launched to UK brides in 2012 and have had an amazing response from stockists and brides alike.

What were the inspirations behind this very beautiful collection?

Art is one of the pillars in my life and I use designing bridal wear as a vehicle to convey my feelings to the outside world. My work is a reflection of me and of the brides who wear my designs, brides who obviously have their personality that they want to express. This expression is what inspires me to continue my work in this field.

Ariadna by Raimon Bundo

Where do you look for inspiration?

Everywhere I can! I try to fill my free time with as much exposure to the arts as possible and I also try to spend time with the brides themselves at our shops in Barcelona and Madrid. That proximity to the needs and desires of each bride is always a major source of inspiration.

Arola by Raimon Bundo

What sort of woman do you design for?

The Raimon Bundo bride has a timeless identity present in every collection we do. She is elegant, unfussy, natural. Our bride values style, quality and feeling good on her big day. The four collections we produce each year have something for every bride so she can chose a design that best suits her personality and her wedding.

Bella by Raimon Bundo

What fabrics and embellishments were chosen for the new collection and why?

Fabrics are so important to us and we only deal with European mills.

Customers always comment on the quality of the laces, satins and organzas we use. Alongside our signature laces, satins and organzas in a variety of hues you will find the most amazing soft silk tulle as used in our Diana dress. We have also continued to push our light-as-air brocade fabrics as used by Oscar de la Renta and worn by the lovely Jennifer Lawrence when she fell up the stairs at this years Oscars!

Do you have a personal favourite from the new collection?

I don’t have a favourite dress but if I had to chose a favourite collection it would be Ir by Bundo. I have quite a lot of freedom when designing this collection which I find very inspiring. Almost anything is possible so we often have a varied and daring palette of colours and unconventional designs. For me, the average wedding is sometimes a little too conventional so I try to break with the more traditional with this collection and move towards a bohemian and vintage style. There is a certain courage and desire that I express in this collection which I don’t have to hold back or limit in any way.

Gala by Raimon Bundo

What jewellery would you pair with this collection?

As you will see at our catwalk shows we tend to favour floral-inspired pieces be they boho or classic. We also like jewellery inspired by certain periods of history so may find the odd Austen-esque brooch or 20′s deco item popping up here and there. Jewellery is quite a personal choice; some girls like to add a bit more bling or sparkle to their look and we encourage girls to customize the look to their personality wherever possible. It’s your big day after all!

Isadora by Raimon Bundo

And what beauty look?

We love the idea of a classic dress contrasted by darling red lips that hint at the passion of the wedding night. For our more whimsical or bohemian brides we love a paler, mother-of-pearl effect.

Iaia by Raimon Bundo

Do you have a signature piece?

The collections are hugely varied but at the moment I would say we have two signature styles: The classic clean structured look of Igueldo with its full skirt and stiff satin fabric. And then we have the lace/tulle combinations of dresses like Diana and Infanta.

Lucrecia by Raimon Bundo

How do you decide on the names for your gowns?

Although there is very often a very strong art bias in naming the collections we take reference from everywhere. It could be architecture one year, history the next, or wonders of the natural world as you will find in this years mainline where we have names like Iguazu (a waterfall on the borders of Brazil and Argentina or Igueldo (a mountain in San Sebastian, Spain).

Marilyn by Raimon Bundo

Marilyn

What is the process for your clients from finding “the one” to the final fitting?

All our dresses are made-to-measure and created by hand in our Barcelona studios.We strive to turn all orders around within 3 months from date of order.

Brides need only visit one of our lovely stockists, decide on their dream dress and get measured up. The rest is just a case of one or two fittings in-store before the big day.

What is the retail price range for your designs?

Mainline and Ir by Bundo collections retail between £1,850 – £2,500. Our Kiss collection retails between £1,400 – £1,800.

Martina by Raimon Bundo

What sets Raimon Bundo apart from other bridal brands?

All our dresses are made to measure for no extra cost and our lead times average 2-3 months from date of order. We also allow changes to style for little or no cost (depending on the change requested) and if brides want a custom-made matching jacket or to add more boning to their dress it’s no problem!

Perla by Raimon Bundo

How did you get into wedding dress design?

Creativity and business run through our family. Designing is the way I express myself.

Was there a defining point in your career that made your business the success it is today?

There have been many along the way but opening our own shops in the most prestigious streets in Madrid and Barcelona was pretty special. And being invited back every year to show on the catwalk at Barcelona bridal week is always a good buzz!

What are your plans for the future?

To keep doing what we enjoy for many more years to come.

Salome by Raimon Bundo

Is this your dream career?

I wouldn’t want things any other way. I enjoy painting and designing womenswear but there is something very special about that connection with a bride on the most important day of her life.

Where doo you go to relax?

We have a place in Formentera which is so beautiful and unspoiled, the water is so clear. It is where I feel most at home and where I enjoy spending time with my children.

What are your “best things” in life?

Family, doing a job I love and art – in that order.

The Editorials: Catwalk Queen

November 20th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Kelly by Stephanie Allin

Kelly by Stephanie Allin 

In the wedding blogosphere, things move at breakneck speed, and you can be sure that any wedding blogger worth her salt will have discovered, dissected and disseminated any trend worth trying at least a season before it hits the mainstream.  Earlier this year, I visited White Gallery London – a huge exhibition and set of catwalk shows at which the big name bridal designers launch their new season collections to the trade and press – to take a sneak peek at the gorgeous gowns that will be landing in bridal boutiques near you this autumn. Let me tell you, if you are in the market for a wedding dress this season, you are in for a treat!

What followed was a collection of high profile designer interviews, right here on the pages of this wedding blog.  The collections have now landed in a boutique near you, so if you missed the previews and interviews, I’ll be republishing these to Facebook over the next few days.  Click here to like our page and stay updated. 

As well as online, I wrote about the beauty and drama of the new collections in my regular column for Loved Up Magazine.  Here’s my summary of the season.  Limited by word count, let me tell you, it doesn’t even touch the sides of all the fabulous frocks you have to choose from.  Make sure to revisit our Designer Series interviews at the earliest opportunity too!

Ipad October 695

Brides Up North in Loved Up Magazine autumn/ winter 2014

The collections this year had something for everyone with glitz, feathers, embellishment and lace, as well as simpler styles too. Skirts were either voluminous (with a nipped in waist) or sleek and swishy. Many designers drew inspiration from bygone eras – with the 1920s and 1930s being popular influences – and whatever your hemline preference: short, long or even trousers, there was something for you. Favourites included Suzanne Neville’s Vintage Rose Collection, Stephanie Allin’s fairy-tale gowns and boho styling from Terry Fox Couture. Check them out soon at a Northern stockist near you.

Cuvee Rose by Ian Stuart Bride

Blushing Bride

The craze for adding a pop of colour to your wedding gown continues for spring/ summer 2014 with a watercolour wash of pastel shades on the catwalks. Fashionista Ian Stuart led the way with his candy coloured Frill Me! collection.

Great Gatsby!

Where the silver screen leads bridal fashion follows, with drop waists, beading and gemstones more prevalent than ever for the new season. Add a bejewelled feathered headdress and some dancing shoes to complete the look. Daisy Buchanan, eat your heart out!

Gatsby by Suzanne Neville

English Vintage

Contrasting with all that Hollywood glam, other designers like Sassi Holford, Charlotte Balbier and Caroline Castigliano stuck to what they do best – British beauty. If you favour the English rose look, their floaty skirts and frothy lace confections will be a dream come true.

Annie by So Sassi

Annie by So Sassi 

Cute & Quirky

Rarely seen in the past, there’s now a flippy little short number in nearly every designer’s collection, as well as jumpsuits and shorts making an appearance at the most cutting edge design houses. If you still favour a frock, check out flirty t-shirt sleeves, deep pockets, daisy detailing and polka dot lace to bring the cutest dresses right up to date.

Jesus Peiro 2014 Collection

Simply Divine

Don’t despair if you like your styling fuss free. Many designers kept things clean this season with a focus on structure and tailoring. Watch out for the new collection by Astral Sundholm Circa Brides for a refined and fresh look.

Enter The Huldra. An Exclusive First Look At The Brand New Legend Bridal Collection By Fable & Promise

October 16th, 2013 | Julia Braime

ZT Photography for Fable & Promise

Of all the posts I put together for these pages, the fashion features have to be my favourite.  I don’t know if it’s the result of a misspent youth pouring over the pages of Vogue or my early career days as a fashion gal in London, but I just can’t get enough of the dresses.  Especially when they are part of a brand spanking new collection by my very own long time Featured Supplier Charlotte (and her team) of Fable & Promise

I’ll let the talented lady explain for herself, as I sit here in a puddle of drool.  Major dress lust at Brides Up North HQ right now.  Major. 

ZT Photography for Fable & Promise

Charlotte says:  It has always been our ambition to design and create a full bridal collection and after an invitation to design a collection for Manchester Fashion Week we decided now was the time to take our dream and make it real.

We love creating one off designs for our bespoke customers. We adore the varied inspirations and eclectic design ideas, but bringing out our own collection has been one of the most exciting, rewarding and slightly indulgent processes we have ever had the pleasure of immersing ourselves in. To take all our ideas and influences, create embellishments and choose fabrics, colours and textures simply because we love them has just been amazing. 

The result is our Legend Collection; a series of three mini collections inspired by myth and folklore.

The Huldra are said to be the beautiful daughters of ‘the hidden people’ or forest sprits from Norse folklore. They are stunningly beautiful women with long blonde hair and flower crowns. The Huldra often try to disguise themselves but can never hide the fact that they are more dazzling than other women. The Huldra love music and their music is heard by hunters and sons of farmers who are drawn by their lovely singing. It is said that when a Huldra marries she becomes human and lives out her life with her human husband.

We wanted to capture the wild nature of the Huldra. We chose warm tones and very tactile textures. The seven Huldra; Aurelie, Fiylinn, Elysia, Rosalka, Orla, Lilith and Taiah, are untamed and natural; asymmetrical or jagged layers of tulle and chiffon over heavy lace and satin with copious amounts of handmade flowers and matching accessories.

We are really proud of the team we worked with on this shoot and absolutely love how everyone worked together to turn our ideas into reality.

Browsholme Hall was the perfect choice of venue. We had used the Tithe barn for our Birds of Prey shoot but we knew the stunning grounds with its old gardens and woodland would be perfect.

We worked closely with Kerry, Duncan and Rachel to create looks perfect for our collection; alluring eyes in aubergines, olives and golds with wild and loose tresses completed the looks brilliantly.

We absolutely love how Zoe of ZT Photography managed to capture perfectly the feel we wanted for the Huldra.
