The White Gallery London is the no.1 destination to discover the very best of British bridal talent. As they prepare for the sixth edition of the premium bridal trade show, the nation’s finest designers have revealed their key trends to look out for at White Gallery London 2015.  Some of the highlights of the show are:

Acclaimed designer Ian Stuart returns to White Gallery London with yet another show-stopping collection of bridal gowns. The honour of having his ‘Flowerbomb’ dress included in the V&A Wedding Dress Exhibition inspired Ian to create a collection that would be fit for a museum. Ian hopes to make the essence of real couture available to the modern bride.

Also returning to White Gallery this year is Alan Hannah, with his 2015 collection Floral Symphony. Blending art deco glamour with inspiration taken from flowers and colour, each style features exquisite embellishment, from the Summer dress featuring beautiful hand painted pink roses,  to Venus, featuring delicate lace which has been specially dyed taupe to match the organza skirt, giving a twist of colour to this light and airy dress.

Incorporating the dramatic backless trend is Eliza Jane Howell’s 2016 English Roses Collection. Styles include the super glamourous Lady Daisy gown, introduced to rival the designer’s best-selling beaded wedding dress Daisy. Other new styles include Tuscany, Chianti and Angelica, and it is all about the back on these dresses too.  Expect to see even more complex beading techniques from Eliza Jane Howell this season, that will shimmer and shine like a work of art.

The 2016 collection from Naomi Neoh is inspired by the ethereal and poetic elegance of the wild and beautiful English woodlands which are captured in the idealisation of a Midsummer Night’s Dream.  The new designs continue to include Naomi’s ever popular signature soft, floating, silk chiffon skirts and use of delicate tones of blush pinks and peach, but with a new addition of an ‘oyster’ hue. The 2016 collection also sees the introduction of a new guipure lace used for illusion necklines and delicate straps, which fits perfectly with the free spirit and mystical feeling of this collection.

Ivory & Co will return to White Gallery London with a new collection for 2015/16. Skirts will be flowing with long trains inspired by the dramatic sweep of high fashion in the 1920’s, 30’s and 1940’s and bodices are embellished with dazzling Swarovskis and lace appliques; think a cross between a Midsummer Night’s Dream and embellishments of ancient Greece and mythology.
