Andrea Hawkes Launches Reflection
Her new 2018 collection – made entirely in the UK – is woven from beautiful natural silks, and sees a raft of brand-new luxurious fabrics being introduced. Comprising full-length dresses with sleek silk separates, jackets and belts, each piece reflects a simple, modern aesthetic.
HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR BRIDAL STYLE?
‘Contemporary/classic designs with a focus on natural silk fabrics.’
WHAT INSPIRES YOUR CREATIONS?
‘Often it’s a fabric that inspires a new design or shape, but ultimately our brides always influence our designs.’
WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON FASHION MISTAKES BRIDES MAKE?
‘The most common areas we need to give brides support with are shape and fit, as well as what to wear under our garments. We are always happy to assist with styling, and our made-to-measure and bespoke capabilities mean we can easily adapt patterns and designs to ensure a perfect fit.’
TELL US ABOUT YOUR 2018 COLLECTION
‘The 2018 collection is special because we spent a lot of time sourcing the most luxurious fabrics out there. The collection showcases our commitment to quality and craftsmanship.’
IF YOU HAD TO CHOOSE ONE DRESS FROM THE NEW COLLECTION TO MAKE A BRIDE STAND OUT, WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE?
‘It would have to be ‘Lupin’ for its textured structured silk bodice with low neckline and georgette-covered silk skirt with centre opening. All the research and time we spent sourcing fabrics is evident in this design.’
