Feminine glamour. That’s the essence of Jenny Packham designs. Her look is sought after by Hollywood royalty like Beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon (just to name a few). And by true royalty like Kate Middleton who’s often seen in Jenny Packham creations.
British fashion designer Jenny Packham graduated from the distinguished Central Saint Martins College of Art, and launched her bridal collection in 1998. Heavily influenced by 1930’s Hollywood glamour, her gowns evoke the luxury and grandness of the time.
But beyond the unfaltering glamour, the exceptional wearability of Jenny Packham wedding gowns truely sets them apart. Says Packham, “ ‘I love the way really big dresses look, but I think I have a weight clearance with dresses. Even the ones we do that are heavily beaded, there’s a certain point where you think, “No, that’s wrong”.
Instead, Packham focuses on simpler silhouettes created with light, airy fabrics and finished with the perfect touch of delicate beading and embellishments. For Packham, “it’s very much about the person who’s wearing the dress; I don’t want to take over from her.”
