I first met the ladies from Hazaar of London at a preview event for the National Wedding Show in London, and I was instantly smitten by their enchantingly feminine and unique creations. Their concept of offering two different dress styles within the same gown was something which I’d never come across before, and their passion for innovation really drew me in.
Hazaar of London was founded back in 2004 by London College of Fashion graduates and friends, Isoline Hickman and Rachel Farrimond. Isoline and Rachel’s experience with and love of modern and historical dressmaking and design provided a strong foundation for the creation of classically beautiful pieces which are firmly rooted within, and inspired by, the modern day bride. Hazaar of London dresses truly push the boundaries of contemporary bridal wear and what it can offer today’s brides, and my goodness are they beautiful!
In my opinion adaptable wedding dresses are the future. These days brides are very concerned with being able to enjoy their evening celebrations just as much as the formal marriage ceremony itself, perhaps even more so! And while the romantic flowing gown complete with a long train is still what most brides dream of, they tend not to be practical when it comes to ripping up the dance floor later in the day! Enter Hazaar of London with the most perfectly elegant and brilliant solution involving the addition or removal of a long skirt with a shorter dress.
Hazaar of London currently have two breath taking collections of wedding dresses, the ‘Rose’ collection and the ‘Grace’ collection, which can be viewed over at their super cute website. It is very difficult for me to choose a favourite collection; however the ‘Violet’ dress and ‘Violet’ skirt from their ‘Rose’ collection combine to make a dress which is almost too beautiful for this world. Take a look for yourself and see which fusions speak to you. You can also visit the ‘stockists’ page on their website to find out which boutiques stock Hazaar of London dresses.
Hazaar of London are about to launch their new collection of stunning dresses which is called ‘House of Hazaar’, and has been specially developed for brides who would like to wear one dress for the entirety of their wedding day, rather than removing the skirt section for the evening….
Here are the Hazaar of London ladies, Rachel and Issy, to explain this exciting new line…
‘We’re always designing, as we’re constantly inspired by a new fabric or detailing we’ve discovered. Some of these designs just felt like they needed to be a single piece gown. We can always make a House of Hazaar collection adaptable, and make adaptable gowns into one piece; we’re pretty playful in our approach to design. The sky’s the limit!’
Hazaar of London brides can go from ceremony to dance floor and surprise her guests with a change of look, or stay in her perfect gown throughout the entire day and evening. Either way, every Hazaar gown goes through the same journey, starting with careful design, and finishing with Isoline and Rachel adding final details themselves. Every care is taken to create the perfect wedding gown for each and every bride.
