As one of Jenny Packham’s admirers, the Duchess of Cambridge always looks stunning and beautiful — from wearing a casual-chic dress at a polo competition in Los Angeles to a formal evening at the Spectre world premiere in London. The duchesshas continued to wear Jenny Packham’s collections since 2011 to many official
engagements. The critics say it is “Catherine Middleton’s alltime favourite label, aside from LK Bennett”.

Being a loyal fan of the brand, Catherine Middleton has been wearing these designs for more than four years and has had the designer create pieces for very special occasions, like immediately after the births of her two children.

Packham’s designs are regularly selected for stylistically acclaimed television and film productions. Most recently, Gossip Girl dedicated an episode to a Jenny Packham show presentation in New York modelled by the lead characters.

Jenny Packham bridal gowns feature vintage glamour in a unique and luxurious way. She combines delicate beadwork with romantic fabrics such as silk charmeuse and tulle to create a feminine and sexy look unlike any other designer of bridal gowns. Jenny Packham had been honoured in Los Angeles as Hollywood Style Designer of the Year, International Couture Bridal Designer of the Year and British Bridal Dress Designer of the Year.

Jenny Packham’s luxury design house is world renowned. This ultimate British designer included some new signature design elements in her latest bridal creations as revealed inher Spring 2016 Bridal Collection. It’s every bit as beautiful as you would imagine. You don’t need bling from head to toe or a 100-metre veil to catch everyone’s attention on your wedding day. Simplicity can
become the major effect for your extraordinary look. Cherish the “I do” moment with sophistication.

In Shakespeare’s fairy realm, the natural world in all its beauty and abundance is enhanced and glorified under the rule of the ethereal and wilful queen, Titania. Inspired by this enchanted kingdom and the characters of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Jenny Packham designed her latest bridal collection with celestial silk tulles, beautifully sculptured corsetry and cascading silk chiffon. The flowing skirts are utterly romantic. The colours are classic white and ivory, alongside a few metallic options, and create silhouettes that are guaranteed to flatter the figure. Appliqué organza
blooms, majestic ostrich feathers, crystal foliage motifs and delicate floral lace celebrate the lavish artistry. Swarovski crystals dance in the light adding an otherworldly, whimsical grace to a collection inspired by a midsummer dream and a fairy queen.
