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 and will no doubt also feature amongst the wedding
guests at the forthcoming Royal wedding in May!
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 2018 collection also sees more choice of standalone dresses in response to customer feedback with more mums of the bride and groom wanting a wow dress with sleeves. These gorgeous occasion wear dresses mean there is no need for a jacket. Again neckline detail on these is truly stunning. Our customers are also 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 baby blues and navy. 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.
