Zuhair Murad

Zuhair Murad Fall 2018

 

Zuhair Murad’s Fall 2018 bridal collection takes an ode to the shades of blushing pink and powdery palettes.  The bridal gowns are influenced by embellishing silk chiffon, tulle, floral themes, Mikado and lace reminiscing some of his previous inspirations.  The detachable over-skirts and the distinctive long capes define this opulent collection giving the bride the option and flexibility to switch looks during her very special day.  Beads, intricate hand embroidery and 3-D petals were the highlights of each of the fairytale dresses, however, the statement accessories such as the ruffled tulle stoles around the shoulder and the beaded and floor length capes added a touch of magic and Hollywood glamour for every beautiful bride to be! Bride Icon have the official Fall 2018 photos.

The Wedding Club is the official UK stockist for the complete Zuhair Murad Fall 2018 Collection. www.weddingclub1.com

Trends For An Autumn Wedding By Veritas

With Autumn well and truly here, it’s time to get to grips with this season’s bridal fashion and top jewellery trends. Our friends at Veritas Gift have been keeping a close eye on the recent bridal catwalks and have given their top trends that will be making waves this Autumn here on Bride Icon:

Forehead BandsBeginning with forehead bands, which were seen on every bridal catwalk at the bridal fashion shows – it seems they are here to stay!  An alternative to the veil – this season it’s all about adding an elegant and 20’s inspired twist with an embellished, lace headpiece. With so many different styles to try, it can enhance the vintage chic glamour look or perhaps go a little more subtle with a plain lace band.

Adding a hint of chic to the wedding outfit, it seems a choker style necklace is going to be a strong contender within bridal fashion this Autumn. Coming in many different shapes and styles, you can definitely find one to suit your taste, perhaps go a little more elegant with a silver band choker.

veritasStill a firm favorite on catwalks, delicate necklaces seem to always add some sophistication to a bridal outfit, bringing a certain elegance to the décolletage area. However, you may want to opt for perhaps a more luxurious diamond encrusted necklace which you can treasure for years to come.

 

VeritasPendants are always popular with brides, purely because they are a piece that can be kept and cherished.  Many pendants open up allowing to keep a photo inside, which of course, adds a very personal touch. Veritas gifts offer an array of beautifully crafted pendants in many different styles and colours- their acorn pendant is particularly a strong favorite with their clients.

Enamel jewellery has long been a favourite for many women who want to show off their individual style.  The enamel range of jewellery seems to be making its way slowly into bridal fashion.  There are many different designs and colors to choose from, with some popular options being enamel cuffs that add a touch of drama to a bridal look!  For more tips and jewellery designs see  www.veritasgifts.co.ukVeritas

A 170 Year Old Royal Wedding Secret

As rumour and anticipation builds up around the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it seems inevitable that royal wedding fever will soon be consuming our hearts and minds once again. There is no doubt that Ms. Markle will have allowed herself to imagine a dream wedding to her handsome Prince, and as every modern bride knows, the newest must-have wedding accessory to add to her planning list is: the perfect wedding fragrance.

Capturing the joy of your engagement and wedding through the power of scent is evolving into the next big thing in weddings. London based fragrance designers, Design In Scent, are paving the way with the UK’s first ever dedicated Wedding Fragrance Collection featuring 8 eau de parfums, 4 feminine and 4 masculine, and 4 ambience fragrances, all carefully designed to add even greater meaning, memory and magic to a couples engagement, wedding day and honeymoon.

Design in Scent

Design In Scent’s Frosted Veil eau de parfum, is the perfect choice for a Princess, inspired by tradition and regality with a Heart of Myrtle which holds a special place in Royal wedding history….

For over 170 years every British Royal Bride has carried a sprig of Myrtle in her bouquet to bring good luck in love and marriage. The tradition began when Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were married. The year before, Victoria was gifted a Myrtle plant from Prince Albert’s grandmother after which she planted at her home, Osborne House on the Isle of Wight. Today this Myrtle plant still flourishes and provides the Myrtle for each Royal bouquet. Even the Duchess of Cambridge carried two sprigs hidden within her wedding bouquet. Myrtle is beautifully fragrant, crisp, cool, and camphoraceous. Its uplifting scent evokes feelings of tradition, holiness and the sacred.

Kathryn Russell

Kathryn Russell Bridal Couture

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 Russell / Model AtifKathryn’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 RussellKathryn Russell

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.

Kathryn Russell

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.  If you would like to see more on Sanya’s fashion profile visit her website here: www.sanyamalik.co.uk

Nilofer Shahid

Nilofer Shahid @ Fashion Parade Bride, London

Nilofer ShahidNilofer ShahidNilofer ShahidFashion Parade Bride, London held in One Marylebone this week featured an array of diverse fashion designers from Pakistan all under one roof.   The invite-only event meticulously organised by Sadia Siddiqui, CEO of Mustang Productions provided a prestigious platform of admired and leading Pakistani designers – including one of the most celebrated and distinctive designers of Pakistani couture Nilofer Shahid. 

This revolutionary designer has contributed immensely to the world of art, fashion and culture. In 2013 she became the first Pakistani fashion designer to be awarded the knighthood Le Grades De Chevalier by the French Government for her work in the development of art, culture and fashion design.

Nilofer Shahid

Nilofer Shahid who was very thrilled to be in London, applauded all the designers who had made a tremendous effort for the Fashion Parade Bride show.  She described how this collection of couture designs were very much fusions to connect and relate to the Western audience. Every Nilofer Shahid collection is carefully researched and never random.  As Nilofer Shahid says herself behind every dress there lies a story, and behind every collection a profound message has been revealed.

Nilofer ShahidNilofer ShahidNilofer Shahid

Thus, last but not least on the runway, the anticipation was high to see what Nilofer Shahid had brought across the waters.  As the music echoed against the architecture of the Grand Hall, it was clear the audience had become mesmerised, and the sparkling true essence of Pakistani fusion couture became inevitable.

Nilofer Shahid is a very proud Pakistani who’s philosophy of bringing and promoting culture forward in fashion has prompted a knighthood.  The couture itself depicts a flow of intricacy and flair, amalgamated with a deep rooted love for tradition, culture and beauty.

We asked who would Nilofer Shahid like to have the opportunity to create a special design for – given it was so hard to particularly pin point one person out of so many icons in the world – Nilofer said Angelina Jolie would be ideal.  We think so too!

A very special thanks to Nilofer Shahid for talking to Bride Icon.
