BRIDAL BOUTIQUES 63 “If it’s glamour you’re seeking, there’ll be more highly embellished gowns coming to the fore – glitter and pure enchantment being key. The princess in you won’t be disappointed! These dresses are being seen in various shapes from ballgown to stunning fit and flares.” – Sarah, “If you want to be the ultimate princess from dawn ‘til dusk, there are some truly magical styles this season. Shimmering fabric skirts seem to be the key and adding a big hoop to show off a tiny waist, and a long royal train can really make a statement.” – Cathy Keen, Blue by Enzoani, Olani ALL IN THE DETAIL “Low backs are very much in fashion. Some offer modesty with sheer illusion tulle covering all the right places, or you may opt for something completely open and edged with sparkle. Another option is a simple cowl back in delicate crepe leading to a sweeping train.” – Cathy, Lo’adoro by Rachel Allan, M793 “There are some showstopping trains this season, whether it be chapel, cathedral or royal, in a circular-style or scalloped and clover-like.” – Cathy, “I’ve seen lots of dresses daring to show your leg! The beauty of this trend is that they can be sewn up, shortened or adjusted if it’s not what you want, so don’t be put off.” – Sarah, Enzoani, Rosalie “We expect to see plenty of exposed corsetry, sexy cut outs and barely there glamourous gowns in 2023, as well as asymmetric necklines on simple and elegant styles.” – Katy, “We’re already seeing more bows and are expecting to see them on a growing number of dresses – big, small, placed at an angle and really making a statement.” – Sarah, Enzoani, Romana TOP TREND GLAMOUR
