Catwalk Brides

With global fashion weeks well under way it is time to start looking at the new wedding collections for 2012. Unlike mainstream fashion’s two collections a year, wedding dress designers only exhibit one exclusive collection per annum.

At La Novia we have been working hard to secure dresses from top international designers to bring Edinburgh some of the World’s most exclusive dresses. From the extravagant to the timeless and modest; La Novia has it covered.

In terms of wedding dress fashion, La Novia believes that the right dress is paramount regardless of what is ‘in’ this season. If A-line’s ‘in’ but a fishtail fits you like a glove – then go with your heart. That said we thought we would give you some pointers as to what is top on the wedding catwalk this 2012.

From high fashion to mainstream the effects of the showstopping series Mad Men have been felt. Having been reliably informed by fashion insiders; gone are the days when we can get away with looking scruffy – uber glam is back! Bridal fashion has not escaped this year-long trend and we have seen a lot of 1950s inspiration take to the wedding catwalks.

Hemlines are hitting just below the knee and the A-Line skirt is puffing out to give that quintessentially 50s silhouette. La Novia Couture’s ‘Flower Power’ and ‘Mojito’ are perfect examples of the 1950s effect wedding dress. As well as these beautiful dresses, La Novia can design and create a dress to your exact requirements; whether you want it in this seasons ‘it’ colour – Red or a wintery plum; Liliana Dabic will be able to effortlessly create you the perfect 50s dress.

If you want to go down the more traditional route but fancy a bit of 1950s flair why not accessorise with a slick of bright red lipstick or nail lacquer. Alternatively, go for super quaffed hair or let the bridesmaids do the talking in A-line skirts or super tight figure hugging calf length pencil skirts a la Joan Harris herself!
