01 Jun New trends entering the bridal market Part Two: High Necks
After our recent trip to London Bridal Fashion Week and the constant research we do to understand the wonderful world of bridal, we have selected some of the trends we are noticing to potentially include in your bridal style for 2020 or beyond! This time, we take a look at the high necks our designers have released to the market!
In the boutique, we are finding that less and less brides want a strapless gown, but have not considered the neckline or strap that they would prefer. There was not a designer at London Bridal Fashion Week who wasn’t playing around with different necklines, and a lot of them are opting to design dresses with a racer back and high neck to showcase a ladies shoulders without leaving the top completely bare. Here are some of our favourites!
Let’s start with 17059 by Ellis Bridals- this gown is part of the Belgravia collection released in 2018, so not necessarily new, more like ahead of its time! We had 17059 in store recently, and the brides raved about the high neckline and how it allowed ivy leaf lace to continue up their chest and back without being “too much”. Available in a nude or ivory. The majority of the detail on this gown is where the lace is, which delicately stops around the waist and hip area, which allows the tulle and lace layered skirt to elegantly fall nicely to the floor.
As well as Ellis Bridals, Phil Collins Bridal have created a gown with a very similar neckline, but with a full A-line skirt, illusion back and cap sleeves. It is the perfect gown for you want an elegant dress that will make your waist look tiny and has coverage on the shoulders. This gown also encompasses the 3D flowers which are on trend at the moment too! PC9321 is part of the Spring/ Summer 2019 collection and will available in Phil Collins Bridal stockists this Summer onwards.
Moving on to our girl, Hayley Paige! Her collection shown at London Bridal Fashion Week this Spring was inspired by female empowerment and the undeniable inner strength we share. ‘Kylo’ is a high necked ball gown with a modern take on a halter neck and a barely there back. The tired skirt is full of dramatic layers of embroidery, tulle and beaded organza trim. Any bride who wears this will give off a confident, self-assured vibe and completely rock this modern trend! Watch this space, she may just be added to our collection as we love her so much!
Don’t be afraid to try a high neckline when finding your bridal gown, you never know, it may just be the look you were after and with so much choice arriving in to stores now, it is a great time to experiment!
