Spotlight On... Bridal Fashion

As Bridal Fashion Week took over New York recently, a host of the biggest names in fashion, couture and bridal wear took to the runways. In amongst the yards of lace, tulle and taffeta, a couple of key trends emerged, full of grace, glamour and nostalgia.

Thanks to the epic arrival of The Great Gatsby, the world of style is awash with sumptuous 1920s and 30s looks. From flapper-esque frills and feathers to aged antiquities adorned with flowers, Daisy Buchanan sets the tone for this season's wedding musts.

Alongside these decadent looks, a prim 1950s theme was evident, evoking the glamour of Grace Kelly and our very own Duchess of Cambridge. With high lace necks, full length sleeves and voluminous skirts, emphasis was firmly on the feminine form, albeit classically chic and beautifully polished.
