Pretty Please!

Our autumn fashion feature saw gowns with detailed skirts and structured bodices take the front seat. If you're looking at a gown with a gorgeously detailed, full skirt you'd be wise to visit the designers we've featured below. They've certainly got their fingers on the pulse. I'm also loving the bustled hems... how chic! Add a veil or tulle headpiece, understated jewellery and a dash of colour on the lips and voila!
