Charlie Brear Wedding Dresses 2016 Collection

In 2015, most of us found ourselves swept up in the somewhat unwarranted collective enthusiasm for 70s fashion that took over the high street. Flared jumpsuits, double denim, suede coats, boho maxis and psychedelic prints… 70s throwbacks came thick and fast, and to be fair at times would have been better left in the past! But unlike the rest of us who were swayed by the rather tricky trend, English stylist and designer Charlie Brear was already well-versed with the silhouettes and styles that defined the decade of boho-chic.

As a stylist in the early 00s, Charlie Brear was greatly influenced by vintage aesthetics and after having to source a selection of period wedding dresses for a shoot with some difficulty, she set out to create what became known as The Vintage Wedding Dress Company. Since her first capsule collection in 2005, Charlie has been honing her vintage-inspired design and retro-influenced styling skills, skills that have today resulted in a bridal collection that showcases the best of the silhouettes and details from decades gone by.

For 2016, shirt collar dresses, drop waist skirts, capelets, jumpsuits and a host of unique styling pieces work together to form a collection of evocatively feminine gowns that are made unique with Charlie Brear’s meticulous tailoring. Using an eclectic mix of hand selected fabrics, Charlie takes influence from the most beautiful aspects of retro style and brings them right up to date with fabulous cuts and layering. Brides can create a truly bespoke look with the addition of one or more of the stunning separates such as tiered skirts, silk shirts, crochet capelets and lace overlays. This is a collection for those with a penchant for the past and an innate sense of style, boho brides who want to feel completely comfortable yet tailored to perfection.
