Laura Ironside Bridal specialises in contemporary fashion with a conscience: quality over quantity, substance without sacrificing style, and lots of other brilliant alliterative phrases. She’s renowned for her stunning silk designs that effortlessly drape and sculpt the body – and she’s just launched her new bridal edit, with the idea that her pieces are wedding dresses you can wear again. And again, and again, and again…
Inspired by the feminine cuts and fabrics of the 1930s, Laura’s pieces are designed to flatter the body, matching a luxurious feel with effortless comfort. The commitment to sustainable bridal fashion is clear at every point in the journey: all of her pieces are made from ethically produced silk, and made-to-order in their Glasgow studio, minimising any waste. Plus, the waste that is unavoidable as part of the pattern cutting is then used in their brilliant set of accessories, such as handbags and hair accessories, too.
Alongside a classic ivory colourway, the bridal edit also includes some colour. So, if you like the idea of wedding dresses you can wear again but can’t see yourself wearing white after the day, why not opt for an alternative hue, like a beautiful rich ochre, or a deep brown chocolate?
You want to feel like the best version of your self on your wedding day, but why stop there? Wedding dresses you can wear again are a great way to feel like your best version of your self every time you slip that dress on. And hey, it doesn’t have to be a dress, either – alongside designs like the Lombard dress, which Laura designed for her own Glasgow wedding, and The Knight dress, bias-cut for ultimate luxurious comfort, the Bridal Edit also includes the beautiful draped Ava top, which can be worn with trousers for a super chic alternative to a wedding dress.
Whether it’s wedding dresses you can wear again, or wedding outfits you can wear again, the new Bridal Edit has you covered. For more information on how it works or to shop the collection, head to Laura’s website.
