Five Favourite Trends From The Spring/Summer Bridal Shows

The frocks this season were fresh, fabulous and utterly fashionable. Made in a slew of colours both broody and bright, cut yards shorter than ever before, and sewn with copious amounts of tulle, it’s certain the gowns seen on the S/S 2013 runways are for the stylish and edgy bride. Discover the top five trends that are set to be seen down aisles and on celebrities in the upcoming months.

Burst of colour
Ex-Voguette Vera Wang’s colourful gowns from last season have led the way and inspired many designers to be daring and inject colour into their spring/summer collections. The most popular colour of choice was red. Both Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta showed vibrant cherry hues along with broodier burgundies. Romona Kevezal also chose to design in red, along with black, silver and navy. The number two colour seen this season was blue. Oscar de la Renta’s sky-coloured frock was heavenly while Douglas Hannant’s navy floral print was Versailles chic.Peplum frenzy
Easily 2013’s hottest trend, the peplum has been popping up all over town. From catwalks to red carpets and now in stores too, its popularity is due to how flattering, feminine and fun the style is. This bridal show season, designers took advantage of the chic shape and designed gowns with large peplums, as seen on the runways of Angel Sanchez and Carolina Herrera. Christos featured peplums of the smaller variety.
Get shorty
The silhouettes and shorter skirts of the 20s, 50s and 60s were all channelled this season. Ines di Santo created a feathery flapper frock with unparalleled beading. Oscar de la Renta’s ballet gown was part white swan and part 50s prom dress. And Romona Kevezal, Rivini, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta all took clues from the mods.Tulle galore
When it comes to
bridal gowns tulle is essential. The fabric of fairytales, tulle not only moves well but creates an air of elegance. This season, hot shots Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang and Reem Acra all added layers upon layers of tulle creating gowns with overskirts, capes and larger than life floor-length frocks.The individual
Just as Tom Ford did when he debuted his women's collection in spring/summer 2011, three designers this season designed with particular women in mind. Carolina Herrera, Romona Keveza and Oscar de la Renta designed gowns for friends, family and muses. At Herrera there was the fashion forward peplum, the seventies Jagger suit and even a trench coat gown. At de la Renta there was a ballerina, a Pre-Raphaelite femme and flamenco inspired frock.
