Ask anyone to draw up a list of bridalwear designers and you are highly likely to see Jenny Packham’s name on that list. Trained at Central St Martins, on graduating, Packham turned to designing evening and bridalwear. Her client list is certainly impressive and counts Sarah Jessica Parker, Liz Hurley, Nicole Kidman, Lisa Snowdon and Mena Suvari.
Browsing the collection online, there’s many whimsical styles with Packham favouring form-fitting styles with skirts long and swishing around the leg. All the dresses have some kind of detail whether it is ruching at the waist, beading, ribbon or a shimmering print. What interested me as well is the names given to the dresses. Instead of picking out standard girl’s names, you’ll find ‘Mantra and Chamonix’, ‘Honeybee’ and ‘Milazzo.’ The style pictured is ‘Madame Butterfly.’
