As a Jenny Packham bride, there will always be a little piece of my heart devoted to her. This lady has such a way of designing and cutting a gown that makes it impossible to describe the instant sense of glamour and grace you feel as the soft, sumptuous fabric of one of her designs slides down your body. Emerging from the changing room that first time I felt like waltzing down the boutique!
So, the release of a much anticipated new JP collection is always enough to set my pulse a racing and Spring 2013 was no disappointment….
Ever so slightly Downton-esque aren’t they? (or I may just be completely obsessed) Typically Jenny Packham the collection clearly shows signs of inspiration from the 1930s, featuring the cutest cap sleeves and high necklines for a demure vintage look, but with more silk chiffon and less satin she has created a beautifully delicate, ethereal collection.
Exquisitely and elaborately embellished as always the 2013 collection also features some beautifully patterned fabric as well as layers, ruffles and sweet floral adornments. I love the almost corsage look of the delicate nude florals on Hyacinth’s belt….
I love the sleek one shouldered Freesia, with its swathes of fabric cleverly cinching in the waist and creating the most beautiful silhouette! And the simple but sexy halterneck Marigold…..
It is little wonder that she is a firm favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge – didn’t she just look stunning in that Teal Jenny Packham last week??
