While some of the Brides team have been totally captivated by the New York catwalks, back in London we were busy falling in love with another bridal runway: that of the Designer Wedding Show. And more specifically the very special gowns of the one and only Phillipa Lepley.
Debuting her 2013 collection at the show this weekend we fell in love with her gowns all over again. What makes them so romantic? "It's all in the divine details," explained Phillipa, and divine they are.
The heavenly features that make her gowns stand out include a liquid fabric created especially for Phillipa which creates a liquid sheer effect making gowns look as though they are floating; cleverly cut tulle adds elegance to the 50's inspired skirts; while tiny pearl-encrusted lace speaks of luxury, sophistication and undeniable beauty.
Each dress is an exquisitely thought out and expertly crafted, deserving of close inspection to truly appreciate its splendour.
