On this Bridalwear course from London College of Fashion you'll explore the specialist techniques you need to create contemporary bridalwear.
You will begin by discussing current trends and with the guidance of the tutor, create a bodice design of your choice.
By working from either a block or working on the stand you will complete a toile for a fitted bodice, refitting where necessary and then making up in your chosen fabric.
You will move on to discuss skirt and dress patterns such as fishtail or bias cut before completing various toiles. During the course you will investigate different types of surface decoration such as lace, piping and bias frills as well as discussing veils and petticoats.
