I am so excited to feature the fabulous new Jenny Packham 2018 bridal collection. I have made no secret of the fact that I am a massive fan of Jenny Packham wedding dresses, and the 2018 collection is incredible.
It features many of Jenny’s signature luxury embellishments and sequins that make Jenny Packham dresses so exquisitely unique; you can always tell a Jenny Packham dress!
The 2018 collection is inspired by the novel The Falling, by Colin Thubron. The novel tells the story of journalist Mark Swabey’s fatal attraction to circus acrobat Clara the Swallow. The character of Clara – her exotic beauty, courage and love of freedom – is what inspired this season’s collection.
“Alone in the spotlight, a circus girl balances on the trapeze; a beautiful, mesmerising act of daring.”
Paying homage to an otherworldly romance is celestial trailing chiffon, flock tulle ruffles, bonded floral lace, oversized satin bows, tailored cropped jackets, embellished bodies and sculptured corsetry. Majestic ostrich feathers, voluminous ballerina skirts and high octane scarlet hues add theatrical drama to the collection.
Every one of these dresses dazzles. The eye-catching designs, meticulous beading, illusion necklines and pretty cap sleeves are yet again so feminine and elegant.
I usually choose three of my favourite dresses from a collection but this is so difficult with the Jenny Packham 2018 collection as I adore them all. So, I am going to talk about the dresses with the most embellished details (true to Jenny Packham’s unique style)…
I dare you to look! If you are looking for a wedding dress adorned with beading and embellishments I’m sure you will fall in love with Dare. With every inch decorated with sequins, crystals and beads, you really will shimmer your way down that aisle. The cold shoulder detail offers a unique touch to this stunning dress.
Meaning ‘gift’ in French, and what a gift Cadeau is. It even looks like a gift tied with a big bow! Crystals embellishment runs from the sheer illusion neckline right to the bottom, including the beautiful train. The deep plunging neckline finishes where the ‘bow’ starts and adds a touch of intrigue to this very flattering dress.
The Euphoria dress from the Jenny Packham 2018 collection is the epitome of her designs, and I love everything about it! Jenny was one of the first designers to introduce ‘coloured’ wedding dresses, and the barley colour of this dress is fabulous. You’ll feel a million dollars as you wow your husband to be and wedding guests in this full-on embellished number.
If you are looking for a Jenny Packham wedding dress then picking THE one from the 2018 collection may be a little difficult! You can see the full, stunning collection in the gallery below, and can find out more at www.jennypackham.com.
