In news that will excite many, Australian fashion designer Rebecca Vallance has launched a bridal collection. After dominating the occasion-wear space for a number of years, Vallance has turned her hand to wedding fare, which she says felt like a natural extension for the brand. “A bridal capsule is something I have wanted to do within the brand for years, it almost seemed overdue that I focus on the bride and bridesmaids!”
The range will ring true to Vallance’s established stylistic codes – timeless silhouettes, feminine finishes and of course, oversized bows. Brides will be well-covered for options, with gowns that span from $649 to $2000 per piece. The collection champions the fabrications Vallance has become known for, including the brand’s form-flattering bonded crepe, and classic tailoring.
There are also some fresh designs in the mix, such as Spanish taffeta bows, frills and clean lines, all in a suits-everyone colour palette of white, black and pink. For both brides and bridesmaids, there’s an inherent sense of wearability that actually fulfil that most evasive wish we all have when it comes to wedding wear – you could actually adopt some of the styles into your regular going-out repertoire.
It’s been a trying year for weddings, with COVID-19 restrictions rendering many ceremonies either extremely intimate or impossible altogether. Vallance’s collection, despite being in the works for some time, seems to effortlessly befit a pandemic wedding – whether it’s for a small bash now, or a thoughtfully-priced gathering later.
So whether you’re a bride, a bridesmaid or even a guest, Rebecca Vallance now has all your bases covered. Shop a few of our favourites below, which are in-store and online now.
