Ian Stuart prepares for Harrogate

Ian Stuart prepares for Harrogate: Image 1 Ian Stuart will present his 2020 Bridal collection, 'I Feel Pretty!' at The Harrogate Bridal Show this September. This comprises 24 show-stopping gowns that epitomise Ian Stuart's unmistakable style.

Retail prices range from £1,500 to £3,500, ensuring that brides of all budgets can wear an Ian Stuart gown on their big day.

Taking inspiration from Broadway musicals, Ian has passionately created gowns that take the buyer on a journey. Luxurious fabrics including silk taffeta, chiffon, metallic laces and tulle have been hand draped and moulded to create each design. Colours include oyster, sand, powder blue, blush pink and black velvet. There is particular attention to detail with caviar pearl beading, deco-inspired sequins, shredded tulle textures and sea shells embroidery.

Taking inspiration from all eras, the collection includes a diverse selection of silhouettes to suit all venues, from a relaxed city wedding or a grand castle to a gothic theme or tropical beach. Many of the gowns have detachable elements such as sleeves, jackets and trains, creating two looks enabling the gown to adapt effortlessly from day into evening. Matching veils have been specifically designed to complete the perfect look!

Custom changes are available, as well as plus sizes and made-to-measure.
