Celebrating Ian Stuart

The stunning, fashion-forward designs of bridal-wear designer Ian Stuart plus Brides equals a marriage made in heaven

Named Brides’ Best New Designer Of Te Year in 1999, Ian Stuart has become one of the top names in bridal wear. His innovative designs, from theatrical gowns with trademark foral embellishments and elaborate beading, to fashion-forward occasion wear for mothers-of-the-bride, feature regularly in Brides’ style pages.

‘I’ve had so much fun collaborating with Brides over the years,’ says Ian, ‘especially when [Fashion Director] Bryony challenges me to create something OTT for one of her wild shoots. She sends me to design heaven!’ Last year, Ian created the ‘Perfect Wedding Dress’ for Brides, based on the votes of thousands of men.

His full-length, of-the-shoulder, pale-latte satin, princess gown was displayed at Brides Te Show in March and won by a lucky reader. Ian’s fabulously decadent fagship store, near Buckingham Palace, is housed in an early-18th-century building called Te Blewcoat. With its exclusive collections of bridal, special-occasion and evening wear, the boutique gives brides-to-be the chance to live out their wedding-dress-shopping fantasy in a dream setting.

Brides awaits the arrival of every new Ian Stuart collection with excitement and, as we celebrate our 60th year, we look forward to many more. ‘Te fashion pages of bridal magazines is where I envisage my dresses when I’m designing,’ he says. ‘My collections will continue to be infuenced by the creativity of the stylists, photographers and make-up artists who pour their talents into showcasing the best in bridal design.’
