All the fashion lovers on budget, who live and breath designer and high street collaborations and are about to walk down the aisle as a bride or a bridesmaid – this is your moment to rise from your chair/sofa and rapidly jump up and down making hysterical noises aka celebrate new bridal range created by Richard Nicoll for Topshop. And after you settle back down here is all you need to know about the wonderful collaboration.
At the end of June the collection called ‘Tie The Knot’ will be available online and in the selected stores. This is 6th collaboration of the designer with our favourite high street brand and it is once again predicted to be a massive success: not just because the brides-to-be will be hitting the stores but they will be joined by other fashion lovers wanting to get a piece of high fashion for affordable price. And what can you expect from the designs themselves? Simplicity and femininity in blush pink and classic white, lots of lace and see-through light chiffon as seen on the sneak-peak pictures below.
The only downside is that the gowns are made for a very specific bride: fashion forward lady not looking for a classical wedding in the church but picking city, beach or garden backdrop. So for example I would choose a non-white piece from a collection if I was going to a wedding as a guest or dressing my own bridesmaids or go for a white style for other special occasions (when the colour would not be clashing with bride’s dress, of course) but not for my own wedding as it just does not go with my mental image of what I wanted my dress to be, which is, no office, a bit more special. Nevertheless I am sure there are hundreds of girls out there who are dying to get there hands on the collection to wear on their special day thanks to affordable pricing and high fashion designs.
Here are the prices for the dresses above, according to Vogue.com:

Tulisa Contostavlos, one of this years new X-Factor judges, is nowadays unrecognisable. Long gone is the urban hip hop band member attitude and with that the corresponding fashion choices. Now this young lady is dressed impeccably and gives fellow judge Kelly Rowland run for her money.
And one thing Tulisa is doing to up her fashion credit (as in direct opposite to street credit) is choosing the right designers to be associated with. This week everyone is talking about her loyalty to Bruce Oldfield, whose stunning creations she worn twice on the show. Let me tell you, when you wear a dress like that you are not just wearing a dress, you project the vision of the designer and the symbolism of his creations. And Bruce Oldfield comes with a lot of symbolism as his dresses have been worn by Royals from all around the world (including the Queen herself) and happy brides on their biggest day in their life (the bridal collection is to die for, go to http://www.bruceoldfield.com/bridal/range/couture and indulge your hidden desires to be a bride, whether or not it is on the cards in the near future).
Back to the lady of the hour – she doesn’t just look stunning, she looks magnificently royal without letting us forget that she is young and sexy. So if you are asking yourself how is this connected to My Fashion Wishlist, here is the answer – I want to look stunning, magnificently royal and sexy at the same time, too. So Bruce Oldfield Couture is right on my wishlist!
