Throughout this collection the history, traditions and storytelling of floral arrangements are lovingly celebrated. Whether it’s a nod to the ancient Grecian origins; in the trailing vine-like strap embellishment on the Edelweiss dress or en-masse; in the cornucopia of intricately, engineered garlands on the Clea, there are tributes to the bouquet to be found wherever you look.
It was during the renaissance period that the ancient custom of giving floral bouquets was revived, as a renewed interest in knowledge, beauty and classical art forms took hold. The floral arrangements were typically Roman, Byzantine and Greek in style.
We’ve taken further influence from this era, both by revisiting anew favourite heritage bridal embroideries and in finding the mood for the collection within this particularly romantic period of history. A time of Romeo and Juliet, Botticelli and Galileo’s discovery of the Cosmos; the perfect backdrop for star crossed lovers.
The heavily embellished styles within the collection are particularly well rooted in the renaissance setting; the Sia and Crossbone lattice styles evoking floral interpretations of a starry nights’ sky and the Neve Dress epitomising classical revival with Greek Goddess perfection.
