NEW Bridal Fashion at London Fashion Week

Take wedding dress inspiration from the spring 2011 London catwalk

Catwalk wedding inspiration

We’re totting up the Fashion Week style-inspiration faster than the designers can get the models down the catwalks!


Look to the shows for wedding dress and accessories inspiration. There’s something for bridesmaids too, with spring’s hottest citrus shades of magenta, lime and tangerine splashed across stunning bridesmaid-inspiring frocks.

A modern tradition

Designer Ashley Isham wowed the crowd with his stand-out couture-style dresses. A slick, modern hair-do and unusual neckline will give a traditional wedding dress the modern once-over.

We like lilac

British designer Matthew Williamson’s lilac-hued dress is soft enough in shade to suit any feminine colour scheme, and most bridemaids’ complexions.

mother of pearl

Any mother-of-the-bride would look graceful and elegant in Caroline Charles’ simple cream slip, paired with a beaded evening jacket in the same colour.

seeing red

Jaeger London’s frivolous, red baby-doll dress is perfect for summer bridesmaids; it inspires us to up sticks and plan a wedding in the Tuscan sun!

Keep it covered

A beautiful bridal jacket tied at the waist with a matching belt is a great alternative for brides who want to wear an unconventional dress beneath.

citrus charm

Amazingly, this dress covers two spring wedding trends in one. Firstly, take note of the fun citrus colour and secondly, look closely at the stamped-on cocktail glasses around the skirt. Could we have found the perfect bridesmaids’ party frock?

Inject a squeeze of lime into your wedding colour scheme – just like Christopher Kane’s zingy little number – for a great way to add seasonal colour and keep your bridesmaids bright and beautiful too!

ticker tape-tastic!

Do-it-yourself brides rejoice! Nicole Farhi’s textured dress is styled to look as though tiny bits of paper have been applied to it. This is one we might try ourselves later on at home…

all things bright…

…and beautiful is great inspiration for a spring wedding. Mix and match your bridesmaids’ dresses with a similar colour scheme – like Jasper Conran’s luminous group (left).
