Royal couturier Stewart Parvin opened the White Gallery London catwalk this morning with a breathtakingly beautiful show set to the sweet sounds of Sade. The collection encapsulated elegant femininity through a selection of covetable dresses buttoned to the seam accentuating the silhouettes. Shift suit combinations gave structure producing a look that was both chic and sleek. Pretty diamante embellishments added subtle touches of glamour to each garment.

Exquisite corsages adorned wrists as elegant statement pieces, creating a perfectly romantic look in rose, pink and dark chocolate brown with emerald green silk ribbon trimming.

Ian Stuart

Ian Stuart’s show-stopping 2012 ‘Killer Queen’ collection hit the runway in full drama at White Gallery London.

His signature full skirted dresses with sculpted bodices made a strong appearance through to more figure hugging fishtail designs with larger-than-life embellishments, adding to the theatrical feel. A sense of rock chic rebellion came through Ian Stuart’s aptly named ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Rockafella’ designs, juxtaposing the elegant, romantic dresses with their cascades of pleated taffeta and classic French lace detailing.

Alan Hannah’s romantic designs graced the White Gallery London catwalk today. Buyers and press saw a selection of signature fluid slim line gowns, plunging structured necklines and pretty beaded and diamante embellishments. Fresh designs came through in the form of sheer capes with ribbon trims and a 60’s style bell sleeved ivory jumpsuit.

Matthew Williamson

Matthew Williamson’s highly anticipated bridal collection made an elegant arrival on the catwalk at White Gallery London today before an eager audience of leading press and buyers. Signature styles from the designer’s ready-to-wear collection are a distinct influence and have been reworked and translated into stunning bridal gowns.

Long short corset column gowns give a lean yet structured silhouette, softened with an artfully overlay of soft ivory tulle. Hand sewn ivory feathers across the tulle creates an enhancing ethereal effect. Buttermilk silk satin printed with a burn out technique of a hand painted abstract winter wonderland design provides a modern, softly textured fabric draped into a classical strapless gown.

Jewel embedded mink and rabbit fur cropped shrugs completes the luxurious look.

The collection captures the essence of the brand and all its signature elements demonstrating a feeling of luxury and opulence. 

We will be bringing you more news over the coming days, and for the real exclusives, we've teamed up with some of the wedding fashion industries leading lights, the buyers from the UK's finest wedding boutiques to bring you news from the front row of the catwalk and to share their favourite gowns from the elite designers for the coming season.

    These are all so gorgeous. I think the last dress in the Parvin collection is my favorite.
