Alan Hannah wedding dresses 2016

A note from the designer: This year I decided that the collection needed the form and structure that I always put into Alan Hannah but it needed a lighter touch. My daughter Liberty was working on her A level art exam and was inspired by a set of Charles Rennie Mackintosh flower prints which we have in the house and she was experimenting with watercolours. Her light touch approach to her work and her attempt to reach perfection inspired me to call this collection “watercolours”. I have used lots of silk chiffon and soft silk satins to emulate “water” with its movement, its waves on the ocean and its shimmering colours which are transported and subtly changed by the reflections of the light. I have also introduced colour through original paintings on the dresses. I have been working with a wonderful artist from Spain who has painted three new works which will feature in the new collection
