So who is Kathryn Russell? You won’t find her with an extravagant online website, but if you are truly looking for a distinctive expression in prominent bridal designs, then stay tuned – you are about to hear from Kathryn herself. Based in Gosforth, Newcastle this artistic wedding dress designer practices what she preaches just by word of mouth!
Kathryn’s inspiration in bridal designs is recognised purely from her love for vintage chic and a deep rooted fascination of romance. Enthused by movies from the yester years, and taking influences from Hollywood screen icons, her dresses are created to catapult every bride through an era of timeless and elegant beauty.
Bride Icon has been given an exclusive first look at a theatrical bridal shoot that portrays Kathryn’s love of vintage and flowers, particularly roses. The sequin details sparkling like stardust and the amalgamation of the roses takes us on a journey back to the days when fashion was dictated by the goddesses of the screen such as Audrey Hepburn.
Kathryn’s added adulation for accessories and hats meant an intricate floral rose theme was a must to convey a further magical element. The tulle overskirt represents the romance of the ceremony with the straight gown celebrating the comfort of the evening ahead – complimenting this dress with the final touches to perfection.
The remarkable photo shoot depicts what Kathryn is best known for. The finer details, the little touches of style and elegance, but with the overall conviction of love and romance that is almost obligatory for every bride.
The Hattie Gown modelled here by the stunning Sanya Malik comes with all the fundamentals that oozes grace and sophistication. Sanya Malik was chosen as the model for this enchanting photo-shoot along with Atif Hussain – an upcoming male model. Sanya began part-time modelling in 2013, and ventured into the world of fashion through London – one of the biggest fashion gateways. She began to build her portfolio with various photo shoots, gaining experience and learning more on makeup, fashion, and networking skills. It’s quite easy to see her enthusiasm in this industry, by her creative thinking and showing her versatility and potential as the next top model.
