Here’s another wedding dress collection to get excited about for next year. It might be the shiny silver plates and the possibility of British brides walking down the aisle looking like some super Princess Leia come Grecian Goddess hybrid that have got us all jumping with joy, but hey: it looks good! The 2013 David Fielden bridal collection, named Modern Heroism, is edgy and takes a step away from the fluffy meringue skirts that all celebrity brides these days are trying to make uber fashionable again.

Speaking about his latest collection, Fielden said: “My col­lec­tion started with a visit to a the­atre to see Shakespeare’s Richard the III. I was struck by the beauty and sim­plic­ity of the clothes of the medi­ae­val period: they sud­denly seem rel­e­vant; the strip­ping back and bold detail set my mind fly­ing with ideas using my back­ground in the­atre, design and chore­og­ra­phy. Music also plays a great emo­tional part in my fash­ion shows.

“I became fas­ci­nated by the hero­ism of Joan of Arc and the visual imagery from a 1920 silent film about her. She became my muse and follows on a trend of mine set­ting my bride in a world of con­flict from a visual and design point of view.

“I always like to jux­ta­pose the roman­tic with a edgy qual­ity. I see my muse as a heroic fig­ure fight­ing for love and truth in a hard and uncom­pro­mis­ing world.”
