Frock Horror #33 – Bumper edition of bad designer bridalwear

You’ve seen the very best the designers had to exhibit in the New York runway bridalwear shows but now it’s time to show off those humdingers that remarkably made it to the poor unsuspecting eyes of the public. Let’s start with Oscar de la Renta, who is responsible for these three disasters. Laura Ashley is in a run for her 80s money with the far left frock, you chucked out that chintz and OdlR swept it up and turned out the middle frock and right, don’t be afraid of being short, just add on a foot tall hat and hang grannies curtains over the top.

But wait… there’s more…


I’m sad to say that Pat Kerr missed the glam bride mark by about ten miles with this collection. It was hard to limit it to just three but I managed. Barely. Left, don’t worry about the female form, just pop a couple of seams on to a satin sack and top off with, well, whatever that is. Middle, I don’t know why this lady is smiling. Obviously she hasn’t seen herself in a mirror yet. Right, I suppose if you want to go dresses as Marie Antoinette’s poor cousin you could wear this, but, lets face it, you probably shouldn’t.


Platinum for Priscilla of Boston took one severely head-damaged model, wrapped her up in about 70 metres of chiffon and sent her down the runway whilst right, Amsale actually allowed their dress to eat their model’s hands then they gave her one of those paper hospital hats to make up for it.


Above left, Reem Acra decided that Gone With A Wind was in for a revival. They were wrong. Jenny Packham went for a more modest frill which if you get rid of those shoulders and the neck thing would probably actually be wearable.


And saving the worst of the worst for last, Kenneth Pool what were you thinking? The model is clearly totting up her fee in her head and wondering was it worth it?
