"Jenny Packham 2015 Bridal Collection is inspired by the photographs of British society photographer, Madame Yevonde.
In the 1930's, the dawn of colour photography, Yevonde created a series of portraits of society ladies dressed in classic costumes, known as 'The Goddesses'. Her stylised images of mythological heronies — Helen of Troy, Persephone, Venus — captured an ancient world of antiquity, within a modern and hauntingly beautiful treatment.
The colours Madame Yevonde used; soft, tonal, always romantic, and the feminine way she played with light and colour to create a hazy, neoclassical ambiance, directly influence the design and palette of this season's collection.
Soft buttermilks, champagnes and warm blush carmel tones in sumptuous silk chiffon and ethereal tulle compliment traditional classic ivory. Celestial capes, whimsical tiered hemlines and exquisite veils add a romantic, mythical affection to the collection whilst delicate French lace is adorned with signature breading and twinkling crystals in an array of molten golds, antique metallic silvers and rich alabasters."
