There’s nothing more exciting than a fashion show. The pure anticipation when the room falls silent before the music comes on and all eyes are on the catwalk, awaiting the first glimpse of a designer’s divine new creations.
Last night, I had the immense pleasure of attending the European launch of Israeli designer Berta’s Fall 2017 Collection. It was a gloriously glittering fashion show, at The Savoy’s infamously breathtaking ballroom, hosted by exclusive UK Berta stockist and proud Smashing Supplier, The Wedding Club.
As the event’s official blogger, and having had many Berta brides grace the STG pages, it was an absolute delight to capture the action on Facebook Live and in a series of Instagram shorts. If you missed it, now’s your chance to catch up on everything, including the great cape action (warning, may induce intense dress lust).
Berta has developed quite a reputation as a cutting-edge bridal fashion brand. With all the sex appeal, seductiveness and gumption that personify Mediterranean strong female expression, Berta’s beautifully curated Instagram feed has amassed over a million well-deserved followers.
Berta’s signature aesthetic, sheer fabrics, luxurious lace, plunging necklines and low backs, were all hallmarks of the new collection, but it’s also worth mentioning that there were also sparkles aplenty, capes and trains, bringing an added touch of luxe and glamour to the collection’s stunning, sensual and frankly show-stopping silhouettes.
The show itself was a delight to watch. The Wedding Club and Berta did a fantastic job of championing diversity, with a gorgeous range of body types and ethnicities represented on the catwalk.
