I’m all for a bit of experimentation outside the usual confines of ivory, peach and champagne so my eye was naturally drawn to this riotously colourful frock on Manolo for the Brides. It’s from Stephanie James Couture, where you’ll normally find adorable retro style dresses for the rock ‘n’ roll bride.
Manolo has perhaps cruelly dubbed it the ‘feather duster dress’. I’m in two minds: I think that for a bride with alternative tastes it’s actually a playful and inventive bit of tailoring that turns the traditional train into something much more fun. Perhaps replace some of the louder colours with taffeta and rags in less clashing shades, and you’ve got a really special dress. Or am I suffering from temporary fashion blindness?
