It’s no surprise that John Charles is an award-winning mother of the bride label. Our fashion-conscious mums love the on-trend dresses teamed with neat boleros and jackets. John Charles is a leading name in occasion wear and is flying the flag for a UK-based design house. We are very proud to have this collection available at Fab Frocks.
This collection brings together beautiful dresses, jackets and frock coats that complement a woman's figure. Quality as well as style is this designer’s trademark with fabrics that make you feel special on the wedding day. So special that JC was a favourite choice for guests at the Royal wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton.
This designer knows all about complementing a woman’s figure. Subtle ruching at the middle helps to flatter your tummy and hips. Most dresses have sleeves – cap, three-quarter length or long. You can confidently take your jacket off and still have elegant cover of your arms.
A lot of detail goes into the neckline of many of the styles. Bear in mind you do spend a lot of time sitting down at a wedding especially if you are at the top table. Pretty sparkle, lace or vintage-inspired embroidery make the top half of the dresses very special.
The 2017 collection also sees more choice of jacket styles. Beautiful organza frock coats were such a hit last summer that they are back again. In response to customer feedback, jacket length on some styles is also longer so sits at the waist.
There’s also some gorgeous occasion wear dresses with no need for a jacket. Again neckline detail on these is truly stunning. Our customers are loving these as alternative wedding dresses for a mature bride or for vow renewal.
Think subtle and sophisticated. Soft silvers, champagne gold, vintage pinks and dusky greens are all on offer this season. There’s also the hard-to-beat navy and cream, baby blues and fresh lemons. It is a colour palette that works so well against ivory wedding dresses. It also complements popular bridesmaid dress colours, particularly if the wedding is vintage-themed.
John Charles works closely with a milliner to provide hats and headpieces to match their outfits. Many are trimmed with co-ordinating fabrics to pull the whole look together for you. There’s even a swatch of fabric provided on your outfit so you can colour-match other accessories. Remember we can help with shoes and handbags that can be dyed in any colour you wish.
