Fantasy Wedding Dresses from the AW11 Shows

I’ve just returned from a month covering the Autumn Winter 2011 collections in New York, London, Milan and Paris. And I put the time to very good personal use by fantasising about wearing the dresses coming down the catwalk to my wedding.

Now I should make it clear that these were not bridal shows but the designers main lines, and so - without exception - these are deeply inappropriate dresses. For me anyway. It’s a little depressing that I’m not the type of girl to greet the vicar in a sheer knicker-revealing Gucci number, have the guts to wear navy or a train that needs its own vehicle. Or vamp it up in red crystals slashed to the crotch. Even something short. But a girl can dream.
