A celebration of nature by the world’s most inspiring artist.
Ian Stuart creates a style of gown that cannot be found in any other bridal wear label. His couture draping techniques, use of colour, texture, unusual appliques, tonal embroideries and stunning laces create an aesthetic that is both unconventional and undeniably beautiful.
For his 2018 collection, Ian has focused on capturing themes of nature within his designs. Weaving together beautiful butterflies, multi-coloured flowers, Japanese cherry blossom lace, scattered petals, waterfall textures and cascading roses. This collection is a reflection of the perfect beauty found within the natural world.
Also celebrating the artistic talents of man, Ian has studied the techniques of the traditional Japanese kimono and obi, mixing fabrics and wrapping them around the body, creating a delicately textured look that is fresh, exciting and extremely flattering. Ever inspired by his favourite era, Ian has paid particular attention to the dramatic draping of 1950’s designer Charles James and reimagined his heavenly style for the modern bride.
‘I am not tied to trends, only beauty’ is Ian’s heartfelt message; designing for that breath-taking moment when a bride is first laid eyes upon and not for the latest fashion trend.
We are certain that ‘Le Jardin’ will take your breath away, and remind you what it’s like to fall in love with a wedding dress …
