Award-winning designer Ian Stuart is known for his theatrical designs and is loved by brides-to-be the world over. His work encouraging emerging design talent was recognised by the Bridal Buyer Awards in 2008 when he won 'Outstanding Contribution to the Industry.'

I'm best known for...
sourcing unusual fabric and colours, my style is theatrical, quirky but yet modern and wearable.

My Occasion and Evening range is...
designed for women who are attending any special occasion. It bears the hallmark of my style; the outfits are sexy, happy, contemporary and made in colours and fabrics to complement the bridal collection.

Brides who choose Ian Stuart are...
very directional as to the kind of look they want for their big day. They are fashionable, quirky and fun and most of all they want to be different!

I love working in bridal because...
it is the only area of fashion design that encompasses theatre, glamour and sophistication

My bridal collection is...
constantly evolving from season to season. I always try to experiment with new colours, fabrics, shapes and embellishment as well as taking risks through the designing. My goal is to make a bride feel beautiful and confident and to look her most amazing!

I am...
slightly mad, untidy, very romantic and terrible at Maths.

You probably won't know this but...
I was born in Holland to Dutch and English parents, I hate Indian food, I have played piano all my life and got stuck in a broken lift with Susan Sarandon for 2 hours in New York!
