Topshop unveil Richard Nicoll bridal range

Wedding season is upon us and bridal fever has taken over at Topshop. British designer Richard Nicoll has created the high street retailer’s first ever bridal collection, which it unveiled today.

The high street giant’s entry into the wedding dress marketplace will debut in stores on 15 June.

The Topshop team sent soon-to-be brides into a spin when they broke the news about the upcoming collection last month, and just a few weeks later we what all the hype is about.

Providing the trendy bride-to-be with the perfect low key option, Nicoll has steered away from dramatic and traditional pieces to create a range of soft and romantic bridal gowns taking inspiration from his whimsical spring/summer 2012 collection (and perhaps Kate Moss’s simple John Galliano wedding gown).

“I liked the idea of making a modern affordable alternative to meringue culture. The dresses are marketed as bridal but would equally be suitable as bridesmaid or cocktail dresses,” he told vogue.co.uk.

The Blushing Brides collection features seven silk and lace dresses in short and full-lengths styles, available in both white and pink. And priced between £90 and £350, they’re a purse-pleasing alternative to OTT prices too.

British-born, Australian-raised Nicoll graduated from Central St Martins in 2002, showing his first collection for spring/summer in 2005. Despite having the talent for creating bridal wear - Nicoll has made wedding dresses for friends in the past – he isn’t about to make bridal design his new day job.

“I've added some red carpet options to my forthcoming resort collection but wedding dresses are not something I plan to launch. Of course I'm happy to make them on request but I'm not the new Vera Wang, no!” he insisted.
