With our new issue of Emirates Bride on stands now, it only seems right to celebrate one of our most loved British bridal designers, Jenny Packham.

Famed for her bridal collections as well as ready-to-wear, the designer’s eye for sophisticated creations and detail sets her apart from many others.

Her 2013 Bridal collection featured heavily beaded pieces mixed with masterful ruffles and tailoring work. Not to mention the intricate accessories, her crowing glory was beautiful crystalised headpieces.

Her ready-to-wear collection is more known for sauntering up the red carpet than the catwalk, being worn by some of the biggest names in Hollywood.

Her list of celebrity clients is endless, from the likes of Taylor Swift to Dita Von Teese and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton,  all spotted donning her ladylike frocks.

Her most recent success has to go to Adele who stole the show in a glittering floor length black number at the 85th Annual Academy Awards picking up an Oscar for her song, Skyfall.
