Hello my lovely! I hope you’re smiling this morning – it’s going to be a beautiful day 🙂 Shall we start with a look at Jenny Packham’s bridal collection for Spring 2015? Jenny’s collections always seem to capture the timeless elegance so many brides look for – and the dresses she’s designed for 2015 are no exception.
The Jenny Packham 2015 bridal collection was inspired by a series of creative portrait photographs taken in the 1930s. The photographer Yevonde Middleton, or ‘Madame Yevonde’ was a pioneer of her time, creating beautifully styled images of society ladies in the costumes of legendary heroines which you can see here.
The series of images which inspired Jenny Packham‘s 2015 bridal collection are known as ‘The Goddesses’. Yevonde’s images were exhibited at the PM Gallery in London in the summer of 2o11, and her stylised images of mythological heroines – Helen of Troy, Persephone, Venus – captured an ancient world of antiquity, within a modern and hauntingly beautiful treatment. The colours used; soft, tonal, always romantic, and the feminine way she played with light and colour to create a hazy, neoclassical ambiance, directly influenced the design and palette of this season’s collection.
Jenny Packham is without doubt one of the leading bridal designers worldwide. Her dresses appeal to everyone; their creativity is magical and the shapes, embellishments and flattering fabrics are out of this world. So many of Jenny’s designs are instantly recognisable – and she’s known for designing dresses to flatter curvy figures, which is just awesome. Shall we have a look at the Spring 2015 bridal collection from Jenny Packham, as seen on the catwalk in New York a few weeks ago? It’s pretty damn beautiful and I hope you love and feel inspired by the new collection!

Staged in an industrial venue against a blue sky backdrop, the catwalk show opened with a plus size model. Buttermilks, champagnes and warm blush caramel tones in sumptuous silk chiffon and ethereal tulle complimented traditional classic ivory. Celestial capes, whimsical tiered hemlines and exquisite veils added a romantic, mythical affection to the collection whilst delicate French lace was adorned with signature beading and twinkling crystals in an array of molten golds, antique metallic silvers and rich alabasters.
