Q&A with JENNY PACK­HAM

Wedding Bells (West) - - Style - —Ali­son McGill

Bri­tish de­signer Jenny Pack­ham (a favourite of Kate Mid­dle­ton) re­cently launched Won­der by Jenny Pack­ham with David’s Bridal. We spoke to the de­signer about her new­est col­lec­tion and what inpsires her de­signs.

What is the sig­na­ture style of a Won­der by Jenny Pack­a­ham bride?

“Fem­i­nine with vin­tage-in­spired bead­ing and del­i­cate, un­der­stated adorn­ments. Flow­ing sil­hou­ettes com­ple­ment more struc­tured shapes, ex­posed backs and del­i­cate em­bel­lish­ments.”

Do you have a favourite dress in the col­lec­tion?

“One dress I par­tic­u­larly love was in­spired by wild flow­ers—the hand-beaded leaf mo­tifs, pearl clus­ters and flo­ral ap­pliqué add whim­si­cal and ro­man­tic touches.”

Why do you love de­sign­ing bridal gowns?

“I’ve al­ways as­pired to cre­ate some­thing spe­cial and beau­ti­ful the bride feels con­fi­dent wear­ing—this is con­sis­tently at the fore­front of my de­sign process.”
