Phase Eight SS14 Bridal Collection

 

The new season Phase Eight Bridal Collection has arrived and it is exquisite! Inspired by the glamour of vintage Hollywood, the sleek and sophisticated styles are simply perfect for a destination day or a wedding closer to home.

 

Here to tell us more about the collection is the Phase Eight Bridalwear Designer:

 

What was the inspiration behind the wedding dress collection?

  • “The collection was inspired by glamorous Hollywood looks of the 1930’s and 1950’s with embellishments taken from exquisite vintage embroidery and beadings.”

 

  • “I would describe the collection as ultimate femininity, with a glamorous and whimsically beautiful vintage feel. Real wedding dresses that are soft and special to wear with delicate detailing, lots of beading, fringing and lace.  Each bridal gown, accessory and bridesmaid dress has been created to ensure that you can customise and personalise your look with beaded belts, lace edged veils, coloured sashes to link in with your bridesmaids and capes in feathers and beading to give glamorous coverage.”

Which dress is your favourite from the collection and why?

  • “That’s a really hard question as I love them all! My favourites are the Hermione Wedding Dress (pictured above) for the glamorous 1930’s feel and the attached beaded cape that sits around the shoulders to provide ultimate feminine coverage. This looks gorgeous with our beaded belts that can be worn all day or just added for a glamorous twist in the evening.”

 

  • “I also love the Elodie wedding dress (which can be seen in the second image), because it has an inner corset that pulls you in and gives the whole dress the most amazing feeling of being supported. It has a duchesse satin fishtail shape with a beaded lace overlay and embellished beaded motifs under the bust. The very sheer tulle straps provide coverage without being too heavy. This is a very modern update of the classic fishtail shape but ultimately feminine with the soft embellishment.”

What is the design process?

  • “Everything is designed exclusively in-house. Each season we travel to Paris, New York, Hong Kong and India in search of the most amazing vintage pieces or exquisite embroidery that can then inspire a beautiful dress. Once we have sourced all of our fabrics, the design and buying teams discuss the collection, listening carefully to feedback from our stores and brides. I then draw up each piece, making sure that the inner construction and fit of every single dress will help each bride feel wonderful in her dress on her big day.”

 

  • “Once each dress is made we carefully fit them in-house to ensure absolute technical perfection. It typically takes around 9 months of very hard work from the dedicated Phase Eight team from initial sketch to the dresses sitting in our flagship bridal James Street store.”

 

 

How beautiful and delicate is the shimmering, sequinned Hermione dress? Love it…and the capes…and the accessories! All kinds-of-dreamy.

Phase Eight wedding gowns are available online and from selected stores nationwide, so be sure to have a look.
