Daydreamer 2018 Collection

Love My Dress –

“Today, we are thrilled to introduce you to “Daydreamer”, the 2018 collection from Lyn Ashworth.  Lyn Ashworth is a very special British label. From their Staffordshire showroom, the team, headed by Sarah Barrett, creates gowns that are romantic and timeless with a modern appeal that I just love.

I was lucky enough to be able to ask Sarah all about the new collection so, without further ado, here she is to tell us everything you need to know.

For readers who are new to your label, would you like to introduce yourself?

Lyn Ashworth is a renowned English bridal couture house based in Staffordshire. I’m the designer and creative director and the label is famed for creating romantic dresses, flowing organza skirts and perfectly fitted boned bodices, alongside impeccably cut, figure skimming and softer silhouettes. Each dress is designed, handmade and crafted from start to finish by me and my highly experienced team of cutters and seamstress.

Can you tell us more about the new collection?

The “Daydreamer” collection is all about beautiful fabrics, ruffles, twinkle and tulle. I wanted to create a collection with a contemporary take on our signature style, so you will see hand appliqued three-dimensional embellishments, delicate beaded French lace and shimmering sequins weaving their way through the collection.

What are the standout features in the new collection in terms of fabrics, styles and embellishments?

The collection features an abundance of incredible fabrics such as three-dimensional floral tulle and guipure lace, delicate French beaded lace and light shimmering sequins. There are also a few monochrome accents threaded throughout the collection using black velvet ribbon belts.

What was the inspiration for the new collection?

I was really inspired by texture and light and how different light can portray a different texture and a different texture can portray a different light. Using fabrics, I wanted to mimic the amazing contrast between the two. We used hand-applique, beading and 3D embellishment to maximise the luxurious and luminous fabrics used across the collection….”

Bride Icon –

“Inspired by texture and light, Lyn Ashworth’s collection for 2018 is the perfect luxury reinterpretation of the brands signature sophisticated aesthetic. The ‘Daydreamer’ collection features texture, ruffles, twinkle and tulle. From hand appliqued three-dimensional embellishments and delicate beaded French lace, to shimmering sequins, the show-stopping collection offers a contemporary take on classic vintage style. Fine off-the-shoulder silhouettes and floor-sweeping statement gowns are available in a pretty palette of ivory, champagne and blush.

Sarah Barrett, Creative Director:

We are surrounded by texture and light. Different light can portray a different texture and a different texture can portray a different light. As the sun rises it creates the daydream effect and as that small window of the golden hour is upon you, your imagination is transported to a moonlight place.”

Highlights from the collection include a light catching sequin bodice and tulle one- shoulder overlay styled out with a hand beaded flower brooch. ‘Spring Rose’ features a beautiful lace overlay with subtle rose bud and sequin detail, sweetheart neckline bodice and soft blush silk tulle lining. Detail is drawn from botanical influences with textured fabric such as three-dimensional floral guipure lace and a silk organza skirt adorned with silk flowers. Monochrome accents run through the collection with black velvet ribbon belts styled to accentuate circle satin chiffon skirts.


Real Bride Natasha

We have received a beautiful thank you card from our private Lyn Ashworth bride Natasha, thank you for sending us over these beautiful images of you and you bridal party, you all looked fabulous!

Natasha came direct to our Lyn Ashworth studio, based in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside, to choose her dream dress after seeing it on the front cover of Brides magazine and instantly fell in love. After choosing her perfect wedding dress she also wanted her two beautiful flower girls to softly mirror her dress. We designed Natasha two super sweet flower girl gowns and made them in the same fabrics as her own dress with floral appliques hand sewn onto their bodices.

Natasha – ‘I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Sarah and her team for my stunning ‘Arabella’ dress. I felt a million dollars on the day and was just so sad to have to take it off at the end of the night! I am so grateful to you for making the whole process so special – your guidance and support was invaluable and my mum and I enjoyed our time with you so much. The flower girls also looked and felt like princesses on the day. Thank you so so much.”

Absolutely Weddings Blog

Thank you for the wonderful blog feature Absolutely Weddings!

“Lyn Ashworth is a bridal label with a distinctive design aesthetic. Always beautifully crafted, these are gowns that capture the essence of the English rose bridal style. Ballgowns and timeless full skirts are the labels forte, and the use of exceptional materials and tailoring makes these gowns classics. All are designed and made in Hanbury, Staffordshire an idyllic rural location on Duchy of Lancaster Estate”

“The 2018 Daydreamer collection is a stunning interpretation of this signature by creative director Sarah Barrett. With ballgown shapes firmly in the mix, Lyn Ashworth is always a go-to look if you want day-to-evening glamour. But what we love most is the fluidity and lightness of touch of this new collection. These gowns are also in tune with current bridal trends, with their focus on fuller ballgown shapes, dramatic necklines and rich textural contrasts.”

“For 2018, Sarah was inspired by the interplay of light and texture. She says “we are surrounded by texture and light. Different light can portray a different texture and a different texture can portray a different light.” This is shown to great effect through accomplished use of hand-applique, beading and 3D embellishment to maximise the luxurious and luminous fabrics used within Daydreamer.”

Real Bride Claire

Real Bride Claire has kindly sent us some of the first of her gorgeous images from her wedding day and we wanted to share them with you xx

Claire had a bespoke ‘Delicate Peony’ wedding gown in all ivory and a luxurious silk organza skirt change which she created with the guidance of the Lyn Ashworth team when she came direct to the studio in 2016 for her first wedding dress consultation. Claire also added a bespoke headpiece designed by Polly Edwards for Lyn Ashworth to complete to wedding look.

By changing certain aspect of the dress Claire was able to create her dream wedding dress and feel a million dollars on her wedding day!

Claire – “I felt a million dollars in my dress. I put it on and my bridesmaids were like “yep that is just you” I can’t thank you enough and the hairpiece as well was just so me!”

“Carl and I met 4 years ago on Match.com. One of the things we both had on our profile was about how much we wanted to go to Italy, and we’re so lucky that we’ve been all over the country since then.
Carl proposed last year while in Sardinia with my parents. It was the last day of our trip, and we were sat on a rock together when Carl asked me to marry him.”
