“I’ve constantly tried to provoke people into thinking afresh and for themselves, to escape their inhibitions and programming.”
– Vivienne Westwood
Inspired by the night sky, the Vivienne Westwood 2023 bespoke bridal collection is a dance between dusk and dawn that beautifully encompasses the intricacies of the cosmos.
Defined by its goddess-like silhouettes and exquisite detailing, the collection is complex, nuanced and sophisticated while still echoing the heartfelt whispers of the modern romantic through soft tulle and scalloped lace.
Ethereal trains, capes, and long line boleros, orbit the silhouette, and textures of sequin, rich heavy satin, buttery silks and metallic embellishments give the collection a somewhat astral luminosity.
With a career that spanned over 30 years and was simply pivotal in bringing modern punk and new wave fashion to the fore, the late Dame Vivienne Westwood will be forever treasured for her persistence in simply being herself and opting for all things new.
The team at VW tells us, “The Vivienne Westwood bespoke bridal collection presents nine gowns, each evoking a distinct contemporary celestial feel.”
“The creation of each couture gown at Vivienne Westwood is a truly bespoke service, with every made-to-measure piece personally designed for each bride and created with dedicated time and attention to detail from the couture team.”
“Once the bride has selected the silhouette, personalised design sketches are drawn-up and a toile is then constructed and tailored to the bride’s body.”
A selection of luxury fabrics, handcrafted embroidery, beading, applique and bespoke finishings are explored, before the final gown is expertly handcrafted in the Vivienne Westwood London atelier.
