The theme for 2019 is The Artsy, the Arid and the Abstract, think subtle tones of stone, peach, terracotta, apricot and soft blues and pinks... Modern and stripped back at the same time, earthy and minimal but with small over the top touches and thought out composition and choices. Less is more, but the less IS MORE... if you get me!? The wonderful Way Out Wedding actually did a whole post on the 2019 MCWF theme which you can read here.
We will be fully embracing this theme and creating a brand new bespoke backdrop which will be available to hire in 2019! We also have plans to organise a shoot which celebrates and compliments this theme which will be big news in 2019/2020 weddings!
Becky, founder of MCWF explains; " Each year the show's styling theme is inspired by the trends were forcasting from the fashion and design world, interpreting them in a wedding context. A dry, matte terracotta palette with Mediterranean and Moroccan accents of apricots and cobalt blues rein, and we've focussed on Matisse and Miro-esque lines and forms as well as organic shapes. Traditional artisan materials like dried palm, linen, wicker and clay are all the rage, when finished with embroidered and painted detailing. A stark contrast to the austere and sleek looks that have dominated weddings this year (a look we still love, don’t get us wrong), the dresses are all that bit extra – puffed sleeves, high ruff-style collars, and dramatic, theatrical shapes and volume, with frilly organza and broderie anglaise patterns. Hand-painted blocks of colour make up a stylised table setting with single stems of fluffy dried florals, marrying more organic beginnings with higher end fashion, as shot by fashion photographer extraordinaire Katy Thomas.”
So.... I hope you're now utterly excited... The London show is from the 1st March - 3rd March 2019 at The Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London.
Tickets are now on sale and you can get them by clicking here. We can't wait to see lots of you there!
