Last Friday, I was invited to go and have a look at {and a stroke of} Alon Livne’s collection at Blackburn Bridal in leafy South London. It’s the first time that the Israeli designer has come to the UK and so I was excited to see the dresses. Alon has dressed the likes of Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Naomi Campbell which is quite impressive! He trained at Alexander McQueen and Roberto Cavivalli before branching out on his own for this collection.

The dresses are truly stunning, there are 22 carefully designed, hand-sewn styles that have taken inspiration from the Italian film star Monica Bellucci for a romantic ride through Italy. Alon has handpicked fabrics for the collection from visits to various capital cities across the globe. I love that sentiment, how he’s literally travelled the world to create these gowns for you to wear on your wedding day. The sparkle and beadwork sure gives Jenny Packham a run for her money.

There are hip hugging dresses adorned with flattering geometric cuts and delicate beadwork, to voluminous skirted gowns cut from the finest silk and chiffon.

I do love a good train. Swishy.

As well as looking at Livne’s collection I was excited to finally visit Blackburn Bridal, somewhere that I’ve heard so much about since planning my wedding and now working with SYGM. The shop is one of London and the South East’s leading independent retailers stocking Claire Pettibone, Delphine Manivet, Jenny Packham, Jesus Peiro, Suzanne Neville and many more. Plus Russell, the owner is fabulous. It’s beautiful and has won many awards. If you’re looking for a dress and live in the South then it’s well worth a visit. And then you get to try on Livne’s special collection before anyone else too!
