London Bridal Fashion Week (LBfw), the UK’s international platform for designer and premium labels to showcase their latest bridal collections to domestic and overseas stockists, is readying for its inaugural show this 17th-19th May.
Timed with the international calendar and buyers’ requirements in mind, LBfw will be held at Old Billingsgate – the iconic London venue on the north bank of the Thames, overlooking the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the Shard.
LBfw will be expertly and strictly curated to represent fully the interests of this niche sector. Buyers will now have the opportunity to source the latest collections from leading brands and designer labels in bridalwear, occasionwear, menswear and accessories in just one visit, once a year, in one calm and convenient venue.
Among the 50+ bridalwear brands confirmed to showcase their 2016 collections are Charlie Brear, Ritva Westenius, Madeline Isaac-James and Lambert Creations, who will all be hosted in the exclusive Designer Showrooms. The Bridal Hall will feature premium bridal brands such as Amanda Wyatt, Demetrios, Madeline Gardner New York (MGNU) and Benjamin Roberts.
The latest bridal accessory brands lined up to launch their new collections of veils, headpieces, jewellery and lingerie in the Accessories Gallery include Nymphi Design, Freya Rose, Rachel Simpson , Yarwood-White and Arianna Tiaras.
Running alongside the exhibition, LBfw will present a Fashion Show Programme featuring a selection of the best UK and international labels. Full of inspiration, the shows are a brilliant opportunity to discover the latest looks and directional trends. A Champagne Bar and Riviera Restaurant will offer glamorous refreshment spots.
