As 2016 nears a close, the bridal industry are already anticipating the 2017 London Bridal Show, an event that will kick-start the international bridal show season from March onwards.
It’s the event of the year for every designer, every manufacturer, and every buyer. With over 100 exhibitors and 200 collections, the whole wedding world comes together under one roof to showcase and celebrate exquisite designs and diverse collections.
Every year The London Bridal Show becomes a glistening window into the world of future trends and leading designers: it showcases the best of the best. It’s a bustling hub for all things bridal, from top-end designer dresses, to accessories or menswear.
This year we are particularly looking forward to the wonders that Essence Designs can do with lace, some beautifully elegant mermaid cuts by Justin Alexander, a selection of voluminous skirts from Casablanca Bridal and authentic petticoat-style layered skirts from Lillian West.
