For a number of years now I have been following the work of Dana Bolton; a North London based dress designer with a penchant for ethereal elegance. Having spent many years with a focus on bespoke design for brides, she has now branched out into a new direction by creating a stunning collection of dresses that reflect her love of all things bohemian, floaty and gorgeous.
The ‘boho chic’ designs in the collection were created by Dana from some of the most popular elements and flattering silhouettes that she has been commissioned by her bespoke customers for brides who are looking for something incredibly special but with a relaxed style. Whilst the designs encapsulate boho beauty she has ensured that they are easy to wear and comfortable – which let’s face it you need to be on your wedding day! Inspired from the textures and movement of the silks and laces, the details and cuts are dreamy and soft with details to enhance femininity with the signature low backs and delicate embellishments.
I really love the delicate and ‘soft’ styling of these dresses, the elegance coming from the separate silk and lace camisoles teamed with flowing drop waisted skirts are so romantic and are suited very much for the relaxed bride. I particularly love the signature back details on the dresses (which also have in-built cups for comfort!) as they are incredibly flattering and alluring and the French lace cap sleeve details add to the boho look. Overall just incredibly romantic, feminine and classic…
Whilst Dana does still offer a full bespoke service, elements of some of the designs from the collection are interchangeable so brides are able to have a semi-bespoke service too, with a selection of lace overlay dress designs that can be worn with a heavy silk slip underneath. Prices are between £1850.00 – £2350.00 and bespoke designs start at £2500.00 and are priced individually.
