Jenny Packham’s Bridal Spring 2018 Collection Was Inspired by the Designer’s Icons

Get ready to dive into one of the spring 2018 bridal season’s most eccentric collections, Jenny Packham’s! The newest Jenny Packham bridal spring 2018 collection gives, in fact, wedding fashion a new name, with its sources of inspiration coming from both Jenny Packham’s very own icons, and from Falling protagonist, Clara the Swallow.

Written by novelist Colin Thubron, Falling tells the story of a very peculiar trapeze artist, i.e. Clara the Swallow, who journalist Mark Swabey falls in love with (I cannot tell you more about the book, otherwise I would spoil too many details about its plot!). The circus is, for this reason, one of the book’s most recurring settings, with its colors, motifs, inspirations and references having been transposed to Jenny Packham’s bridal spring 2018 proposals and runway show.

It was an imposingly appealing show, both because of its starry decorations on the walls, and because each detail embraced some of Falling’s most recurring leitmotifs, with the one encouraging us to take risks in love being the most visible especially through the runway and collection’s red-toned accents.

Love and fun, all wrapped around their otherworldly vibes, are the core of this latest bridal collection, with the designer being extremely prone to favoring the latter over a more conventionally traditional kind of fashion. Like many other designers, such as Christian Siriano and Monique Lhuillier, Jenny Packham places the bride-to-be needs at the center of her collection, treating them to a 32-piece, dream array of completely different styles one cannot get bored with for sure.

“Our brides have always been a little bit alternative,” Packham said backstage, explaining also that she opted for tons of separates specifically made for “girls who want to create their own outfits.”

And whether Jenny Packham’s brides will opt for separates or classic gowns, the great amount of eccentric versatility the designer provided will surely satisfy many tastes. First and foremost, the newest Jenny Packham bridal spring 2018 collection satisfies the needs of those who are looking for the most exaggeratedly extravagant wedding proposals, thus including in the array a circus-inspired short dress in fiery red, as well as long, slightly Roaring Twenties-inspired shimmery dresses (available both in red and silver).

Secondly, the line-up will particularly intrigue those who are always looking for sensual proposals adorned with intricate Chantilly embroideries, the patterns of which are aplenty here, too.

Last but not least, those who prefer more diva-like gowns could always count on Jenny Packham’s red carpet-approved wedding proposals, which this time around were inspired by some of the designer’s biggest fashion icons, namely Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (who wore an exquisitely embroidered Valentino wedding gown on her wedding day), and Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy.

Whatever one may opt for, the most important thing is, as Jenny Packham put it, to be a “bit daring in bridal and take a few risks.”
