The biggest fashion event in the UK calendar which sets trends, breaks rules and influences colour, shapes and prints for the next season, not only in fashion but as a precedent for forecasting trends across the board from event décor to wedding dresses. We look at the stand out trends that we may see weaving their way into the events industry in the next couple of months;
If you have dreamt of having a princess wedding ever since you were young, then 2016 is your year. From pink shades to delicate cuts, New Romance is spring’s most refined trend with delicate feminine looks featuring lace, tulle and silk in beautiful, luxurious pastel shades. Simone Rocha’s collection featured dreamy girly cuts, ruffles, bells sleeves and a colour palette that a princess could only dream of. Take pink further than the dress code; dress a marquee in a beautiful pastel pink lining, add soft touches of blush throughout your table setting and flowers and set your whole venue off with delicate pastel up-lighting.
Compliment the pastels with Beautiful Botanicals; the floral motif never ages and is back in a big way for spring. The English country garden is the inspiration this year, whether oversized or, like Erdem Moralioglu’s embroidered gowns and tiered dresses, delicately entwined in fabric – the flower is the go-to that will take you from day to night. Will you be brave and wear it on your big day? There are ways to embrace the trend in a more subtle way with hanging floral displays, floral tablecloths and delicately embroidered napkins; the more intricate the design, the better, let the flowers do the talking.
Take influence from Alexander McQueen’s beautifully crafted dresses that, as well as featuring soft shades of pink, are laden with intricate detail throughout;
The festival theme is prevalent in the event industry and London Fashion Week showed us that it is not going anywhere this year. With a carefree and bohemian vibe from floaty cuts and flowy materials in light shades and powdery pastels, we can expect to see it merged into the other trends. Thinking of having a festival themed event? A marquee is the ideal venue, opt for coconut matting for a more natural look with comfy seating and informal dining, most importantly a band to dance through the night with!
We can’t wait to see what influence fashion will have on the events industry in 2016, a marquee is a great blank canvas that let’s you play around with these trends and add your own personality. Find out more about marquee hire here
