Light Matters

LM1

Juxtaposed against contemporary interpretations of Arabic architecture, here we showcase some of this season’s most statement-making gowns. Pattern and light are explored through mashrabiya, a form of latticework that uses geometric shapes to provide shade, resulting in patterned sunlight where light passes through.

NV1

To celebrate the spirit of the vanguard, WedLuxe travelled overseas for a collaboration with internationally acclaimed photography team Miss Aniela, known for their surreal collection of photography that blurs and pushes the boundaries of art, photography, and fashion.

Deep within the British Cotswolds at Eastnor Castle, we captured extraordinary beauty of past and present. Gowns by contemporary couturiers Ashi Studio, Georges Hobeika, and Georges Chakra were juxtaposed against the magnificent Great Hall with its soaring 60-ft high ceiling and impressive armour collection. The drawing room, designed by Augustus Pugin (a pioneer of the Gothic Revival style, culminating in his interior design of the Palace of Westminster), and library, designed by George Fox (complete with Flemish tapestries originally ordered by Catherine de’ Medici), provided further visual contrast.
