Some days it’s just all about the dress. Jenny Packham‘s breathtaking bridal wear has had my heart for a decade: sparkling and swishing their way through the years, Jenny’s gowns are inimitable, elegant and glamorous.
A Tale of Three Cities is the name for Jenny Packham’s 2020 wedding collection. The gowns capture the spirit of some of the world’s most romantic destinations: Paris, Buenos Aires and New York. With such diverse influences and an international outlook, Jenny Packham never fails to excite with her bridal launches, and I truly believe once you’ve tried on one of her gowns you’ll fall in love.
‘La Ville-Lumière’, the city of light and love, Paris is renowned for its fin-de-siècle grace and its haute couture heritage. Inspired by this sentiment, draped chiffon, finely pleated tulle, delicately embroidered organza and volumous skirts are softly romantic for an ethereal bride.
Vibrant, passionate and beautiful, Buenos Aires is synonymous with a Latino love of carnival and dance. In homage to the sensuality and soul of the city, these silhouettes celebrate the female form with bias cut crepes, intricate embellishment, fishtail skirts and plunging necklines.
‘The city that never sleeps’, New York is an icon of high octane glamour. Inspired by Upper East side elegance and the hedonism of downtown Manhattan are high-low hemlines, crystal encrusted mini dresses and ostrich feather trims. These are sophisticated dresses for a sensational party.
As ever, the sparkly beading and carefully crafted patterns of the embellishments on Jenny’s gowns are perfectly captivating. This collection adds more head-turning detail with feathers and capes for truly stunning silhouettes. My faves are Jackie for classic Jenny Packham twinkle; Margeaux for sassy, city chic style, and of course Etoile for simply taking my breath away!
