Bridal sketches brought to life

I thought it would be fun to see what the bridal sketches from my post earlier in the week (see here if you missed it) look like in ‘real life’.

Of course it would have been GREAT if that brain wave had hit me while I was posting the original sketches so you could easily see the contrast, but alas I am not adept enough at this blogging caper to be so sensible! To make up for this rookie error, I have created a slide show which include the original sketches, so you can see them come to life.

Sketchy bridal

Check out these beautiful drawings, giving us a look at some of the trends hitting the catwalks for 2013. It is amazing how these sketches portray the ‘feeling’ of the dress so skilfully! They have a lot of personality.

So beautiful! My favourites are the Francesca Miranda, Junko Yoshioka and Rivini drawings, and Ines Di Santo gets a look in for the dramatic quality of the sketch – how awesomely haughty does she look!

I hope to spoil you later this week with some more insights into the Spring 2013 trends.
