When you’ve been blogging about weddings and bridal gowns for as long as I have, when a new designer emerges that offers something beautiful, unique and new you just know they are going to be a huge success. Well, a few weeks ago, I was introduced to the work of Charlotte Simpson, a British bridal designer based in London and was lucky enough to meet with her and also view the beautiful show room near Marylebone to view the designs in person.
Her approach is incredibly refreshing – this is bridal in a whole new light. Blending contemporary and classic styles, Charlotte’s vision is to create a carefully crafted wardrobe for the modern woman that combines intricate embroidery with minimalist elegance – sophisticated yet understated.
Charlotte, who as an MA in Fashion Design and Technology has previously worked with Amanda Wakeley and Julien Macdonald, launched her own collection which concentrates on her unique signature style of ‘effortless elegance’. It’s that en pointe combination of contemporary and classic that I know will be hugely popular for the modern bride looking for craftsmanship paired with minimalist design.
Even from the images, the luxurious nature of the designs is tangible. The fabrics selected by Charlotte Simpson bridal are of the highest quality with silks, satins and wools sourced from all over the world, and combined with the unique textures and embroidery details these stunning embellishments manage to keep the styles modern and accessible.
Based in her Marylebone studio in London and in addition to her bridal collection, Charlotte Simpson also offers three unique services: made to measure dresses from the capsule collection, customised for combining elements and modifications of the collection together for a personalised dress and bespoke, for luxury without limits.
