Wow! What a show this was! The design inspiration for Ian Stuart's 2011 bridal collection comes from Queen Elizabeth 1st, Debbie Harry and Les Folies Bergere. A mix of luxurious fabrics including silk taffeta, printed silk organza, taffetas metal, brocade and silk chiffon portray his signature style. Detachable items, crochet lace, oversized skirts and elaborate embellishments are key. Once again, I was honoured to provide the backstage and catwalk photography for the show at the Saatchi Gallery in London on 23rd - 24th May 2010.
Once again, I was down at the Vinopolis in London this week to photograph Ian Stuart's 2010 'Paramount' bridal collection catwalk show. The turn out was unbelievable, as buyers gathered in admiration of his latest showcase of bridal gown designs.

The show commenced with Alek Wek, one of the true supermodels. Jacob Kimmie explains the collection marks the moment a girl becomes a woman, hence the title ‘The Debutante’.
