Hi All 🙂 This morning I thought I'd share some of these 'hot-off-the-catwalk' images from the launch of the Caroline Castigliano 2011/12 bridal and evening wear collection at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in London on Thursday 20th January.
I was unfortunately unable to make this event but I'm delighted that Caroline's office have shared these images which capture the Castigliano modelling team gliding gracefully down the catwalk in some of the new romantic bridal gowns of soft tulle and lace, along with some of Castigliano's striking signature pieces with structured fishtail and statement organza gowns.
Caroline Castigliano says…
“Every bride deserves to look and feel her most beautiful on her wedding day and the 2011/12 collection is designed to do just that. Soft organza and satin georgette gives this collection an expression of understated feminine glamour.
My ethos is to design for women that love style and appreciate beautiful fabrics and quality workmanship. My gowns are simplistic, stylish and luxurious. In 2011/12 my entire inspiration was to continue to develop a relaxed glamour collection, a look that is sensual and glamorous with a casual feel about it…"
