Erdem London Fashion Week Wedding-Worthy Look

The Fall/Winter 2014 ready-to-wear shows marched on this week in London, the fashion capital known for both an irreverent take on style and incredible attention to construction and tailoring. Much like in New York, several designers showed wedding-worthy looks.

Erdem, known for his floral embroidery, presented a collection that was heavy on texture and full of luxurious fabrics; brocade, unfinished embroidery and lace played heavily throughout. Our favorites included this ethereal, ladylike pale-gold guipure shift (see above), so perfectly suited to a wedding, and a textured white fur coat adorned tiny explosions of gold embroidery. (How gorgeous would this be as a celebratory topper for a bride in an English garden ceremony?)

Emilia Wickstead London Fashion Week Wedding-Worthy Looks

Beloved by the Duchess of Cambridge, designer Emilia Wickstead took her collection in a slightly different direction—away from the girlish, close-cut silhouettes in pastel hues that we often see on our favorite Royal, and toward new fabrics and shapes. Several looks would shine on a minimalist bride, including a clean, all white, high-necked pant look (with metallic gold pumps—a great bridal styling idea!), and this plunging neckline white silk gown.

Christopher Kane London Fashion Week Wedding Worthy Look

Christopher Kane, the mad-hatter designer behind irresistibly surprising clothes, turned out a complex collection that included this pink layered organza dress. It rustles like a book and is a sharp take on dainty. (We already pinned this to a friend's bridesmaid board!)

Simone Rocha London Fashion Week Wedding Worthy Look

Simone Rocha's opulent Elizabethan-inspired collection included two incredibly romantic options for bridesmaids or the rehearsal dinner; midi-length dresses in whisper-thin, pale-rose organza, embroidered with a grid of gold thread. Trend alert: the sleeveless option was paired with a metallic gold shoe, not a heel this time, but a pointed Scottish brogue.

Matthew Williamson London Fashion Week Wedding-Worthy Look

British it-gent Matthew Williamson's collection is always one to watch, and this season he hit the mark with an ostrich feather gown that would suit a 1920s inspired bride. The collection included exclusive shoes by Bionda Castana, fellow Brits who recently launched a bridal line.
