‘You’ve been for a stroll in the garden picking flowers and daydreaming with your lovers name on your lips’
Having had a long time love affair with flowers, Natalie has drawn inspiration for her latest bridal collection from blooms and botanical gardens. Each design in the collection features a type of fabric flower from petite and scattered to a bold cluster of blooms. Another constant inspiration is exploring fabric manipulation and textures, the culmination of these ideas resulted in Natalie and her team researching into the different types of floral motifs on laces and fabric and also creating their own by artfully painting large flowers onto silk fabric before hand-appliquéing them onto gowns in different forms.
Quality fabrics such as silk dupion and lace can be seen on the gowns as well as fine tulle and silk organza which give a wonderful transparent depth to the designs. Bodices are contoured close to the body while skirts generally tend to be floor length and sweeping. Natalie Chan brides are imagined in ivory but also in pops of beautiful pinks from soft hues, to brighter tones of coral and water lily pink.
