For 2016, Phase Eight have launched a fairytale collection of beautiful wedding gowns defined by elegant romance and exquisite design. Each dress has been created using only the most luxurious fabrics combining modern silhouettes with vintage inspired design for contemporary, graceful style and stunning attention to bring statement, designer quality gowns to the high-street.
The collection consists of nine new styles, each designed by Phase Eight’s expert in-house team who have a strong background in bespoke bridal couture. Expect breathtaking beading, delicate lace, intricate embroidery, floral appliqué and dreamy tulle skirts, with each style making its own unique statement for every discerning bride’s style and taste. Prices range from £275 to £650 and available online and in Phase Eight Bridal Boutique stores.
For brides searching for a statement showstopper channelling old-school Hollywood glamour, the Talunia full sequinned dress features a gentle fishtail skirt and luxurious draped back. For vintage inspiration with a modern twist, the Joanna sequin dress features an on-trend loose bodice with scalloped trim and a layered petal mesh base, whilst the Maeve’s placement sequins have an ombre effect for contemporary style.
The Evangeline embellished dress is the perfect combination of statement detailing and ethereal romance with its heavily embellished bodice and cut-out back matched with a dreamy, princess style tulle skirt. For the more traditional bride, the Amelie features swirling tapework on a lace base whilst the pretty Oriana has delicate all over embroidery and intricate scallop lace edging on the mesh top. The sheer back detailing reveals a peak of skin and is complimented by a sweeping longer- length train for a stunning overall finish and luxurious look and feel.
The range also consists of three new short wedding styles – perfect for a city wedding or a playful twist on tradition. The Selma is a beautiful tea length embroidered wedding dress with a sweetheart neckline and scallop edging whilst the Ines is a sophisticated tapework dress over a lace base for brides looking for simple, elegant style. Possibly the freshest short style in the collection is the satin Flora which comes in a powder pink colourway and decorated with all over flower appliqué. This sweet dress with double layer design and complementing jacket provides a truly modern look for brides looking for a chic alternative to the classic white gown.
The collection will continue to include three best-selling styles from the previous season – the fully embellished Hope, the exquisite lace Giovanna and the dreamy embroidered floral Josefina. Complementing accessories will ensure brides can add the all important finishing touches including hair pieces, veils and beautiful clutch bags and shoes.
Building on the exceptional success of previous bridesmaid collections, Phase Eight have extended the range to include a variety of new shapes and lengths including sophisticated knee length shifts, flirty fit-and-flares and elegant floaty maxi styles with a varied colour palette from dusky pinks through to bright pouts or rich navy to suit all seasons and wedding themes. Each dress has unique finishes, from simple gathered fabric to highlight and flatter the waist to elaborate lace overlay, placement embellishments and back detailing to offer something truly special on the high street. Prices vary from £130 to £170 with online exclusive colourways and complementing sashes to ensure each bride and her maids look and feel spectacular.
