Set to the dramatic sound of tolling bells and a Gregorian chant, David Fielden's show started with a single gown, hidden behind giant curtains: still and holy. And with an almost theatrical turn, the models made their way down the brightly lit catwalk, with lights glowing beneath them to reveal the most delicate of details.
Heavily influenced by the medieval heroine Joan of Arc, David combined soft peasant girl shapes and pretty plaits with noble details: fitted bodices, demure high necks, long and puffed sleeves.
Full skirts of organza, damask and chiffon, paired with gentle panelling gave the edgy gowns a soft touch. And lace panelling, illusion backs and necklines a bit of delicate sex appeal.
Known for his dramatic catwalks, we were surprised to see a very clean and otherwise sparse catwalk; David decided to abandon props, and instead dressed the runway with his glowing gowns.
Closing with a dramatic trio of warrior brides, the finale dresses all featured armour-like shoulder pads, bodices and neck pieces, giving the show a very fierce, modern and strong feel.
Florence and the Machine's No Light, No Light set the tone for the final walk around, with a standing ovation for David Fielden and his edgy - but very beautiful - brides.

David is well known for his maverick approach to bridal wear; taking his background in theatre, design and dance to create truly innovative bridal gowns.
His 2012 collection, pictured, juxtaposed feminine details like delicate florals and soft materials with a modern urban setting and futuristic styling.
We can't wait to see what he has in store for us this year!
