Fringed back details, feature sleeves and ballerina length tulle skirts
Anyone who knows Buckinghams knows we are big fans of Sassi Holford – in fact Sassi was the very first British designer to feature in our first issue back in 2014 so we are really pleased to share with you the So Sassi Collection for 2018.
“Each year, the So Sassi design team works hard to develop unique, individual and fashion forward styles, giving their brides a collection which is not only all those things but one that is created with love and passion. This bright team of fashion graduates, all focus on creating a label which represents the 21st century bride – she wants to have fun, dance like no one is watching and make her big day one that no one will forget.
The 2018 So Sassi Collection celebrates brides who want to embrace their own style, brides who are not afraid to make a statement and brides that want a twist on tradition.
Taking inspiration from generation ‘Y’ brides and celebrities, the collection sees a blend of styles, silhouettes and fabric that creates a fun-loving vibe. The way the skirt moves for dancing, the way the bodice keeps it shape and not forgetting the internal corset which makes you feel fabulous and sexy. New design elements include cold shoulders, fringed back details, feature sleeves and ballerina length tulle skirts – it is a collection that wows!”
