This year the White Gallery London event had over 40 international designers showcasing their 2012 collection of bridal wear, evening wear and accessories on May 22- 24th at Battersea Evolution.

There was an array of talented designers present like Ian Stuart, Stephanie Allin and Alan Hannah. The collection of designers also included the infamous Mathew Williamson who showcased his first bridal wear range on the first day of the show.

Ian Stuart's collection was breath-taking and glamorous. Already with a vast international audience Stuart wowed the audience filled with press and buyers with a production inspired by the era of hollywood musical.

 The music, the lighting, the models and the dresses created a fun and vibrant atmosphere. Our favourite from the show has to be the Basilica which mimicked the dress which the new duchess of Cambridge wore on her big day.

Stephanie Allin's latest collection was inspired by the jazz era in the 1930s and she kept to her signature of corsetry and structure.

The Allan Hannah label has been around for 21 years and the reason why is very obvious. The new collection was about creating glamour with interchangeable accessories like boleros.

Other designers who showcased on the catwalk included, Hollywood dreams, Johanna Hehir, Sharon Bowen and many more.

Apart from the already known array of designers there was also a catwalk show that showcased some amazing designs by new talents like Tobi Hannah. Terry Fox and Elizabeth Stuart.

Other brands at the event were Vivian Sheriff Millinery who was there exhibiting her hat collection, Polly Edwards with her jewellery and Rachel Simpson with shoes.

It seems like the trend for 2012 bridal wear is glamour, many of those who showcased re- created the Hollywood glamour look with the hair which was by Michael Van Clarke and the make-up which was by Benefit cosmetics.

It also looks like brands were influenced by the new Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa Middleton because various dresses from their collections were inspired by their gowns
