The Secret Garden Catwalk
This year the Brides The Show catwalk echoes the story of The Secret Garden, with beautiful references to the rambling roses, hidden doorways and blossoming love from Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic English novel, published in 1911.
Dresses will be modern with hand-painted and laser-print fabrics, with just a touch of sheer in chiffon, silk-tulle, and organza. Colours creep from the softest ivory clouds, and the pale grey and liquid blue of an early morning sky, to the garden itself, with hazy shades of green, lilac, pale rose pinks, romantic blush and peach.
In homage to the story’s whimsical wild planting, we see hand-crafted touches of floral embellishment both in oversized traditional silk blooms to layers of 3D flowerbud cutouts, together with leafy embroidery such as creeping ivy and overgrown hedgerows and natural, country-style lace. The look is the epitome of wild romance with a magical secret allure.
‘I grew up reading the story of The Secret Garden and dreaming of finding that place someday,’ says Bryony Toogood, Brides’ fashion director who returns to style the four daily catwalk shows. ‘It sounded so intriguing and alluring. Our catwalk is the perfect place to recreate the images I have drawn from the pages of the novel. It will show the beauty of bridal in its purest and most innocent form.’
Joining the line-up of British and international designers this year will be Amanda Wakeley, Halfpenny London, Catherine Deane and Ian Stuart, along with an exclusive collaboration with Jenny Packham on the opening Friday night. Stephanie Allin, Naomi Neoh, Charlie Brear and Suzanne Neville will also be featured throughout the entire weekend – one that promises to deliver more incredible dresses than any other year.
Jenny Packham Exclusive
We’re delighted to reveal an exclusive collaboration with A-list designer Jenny Packham at this October’s event. On the Friday opening evening we will showcase her 2016 NY Bridal Week catwalk show, including a recreation of her gorgeous A Midsummer Night’s Dream set. This one-off runway show will also feature a selection of designs that have been created by Jenny exclusively for Brides The Show – dresses that have never been seen in public before.
An exciting new feature at Brides The Show this year is The Bridal Brunch – the ultimate girls’ day out. Treat your bridal party to a reserved seat in the 10.30am catwalk show on Sunday 4th October, followed by a scrumptious brunch in the restaurant, including a glass of bubbles from Nyetimber. Listen to a talk from exclusive wedding planner Bruce Russell, then grab another glass of bubbles (on us!) before heading off around the show. Best of all, you’ll walk away with a luxury gift bag filled with goodies from Duck & Dry, Bobbi Brown and more!
