Fashion Forward Dubai Bridal looks from the runway

This year at Fashion Forward Dubai the best designers in the Middle East and beyond showcased their latest collections in a celebration of Dubai fashion.

We’ve taken inspiration straight from the runway as Dubai designer brand Atelier Zuhra and Saudi designer Sara Altwaim; exposed new couture bridal looks that any bride-to-be needs to steal.

Brides in the Middle East are proud to be glamorous and feminine. They take inspiration from the exclusivity and craftsmanship of couture, as both Sara Altwaim and Atelier Zuhra at FFWD, created haute couture fantasy, suitable for elegant wedding dresses.

Bridal trends of intricate embroidery and beaded detail were displayed beautifully; perfect for a spring wedding. Even if you can’t afford couture (let’s be honest most of us can’t) these collections still provide the ultimate bridal inspiration, as you can still emulate styles from the Fashion Forward Runway.

Most Dubai brides dream of a dress made from a fashion fairy-tale, so we've selected our top-picks of bridal looks from fashion forward which should be featured as wedding dresses in Dubai.

Atelier Zuhra

Dubai-based designer Atelier Zuhra mesmerised us at Fashion Forward Dubai with a collection of outstanding quality designs worthy of both the runway and the aisle, as we tip them to be the best wedding dresses of 2018. Delicate embroidery and shattered mosaic crystal embellishments reflected the light beautifully in what can only be described as Gaudi-esque pieces of art.

Wowed with intricate beading, tulle, sequins, feathered mesh and crystals, these dresses flowed from silhouettes in ball gown, A-line and structured styles that defined Middle East glamour and elegance.

Each part of the collection was colour coordinated beginning with classic white, as well as black, grey and gold dresses even suitable for the unconventional bride or trendsetter.

Sara Altwaim

For the less extravagant bride, Sara Altwaim’s newest collection titled Salam which translates to peace, provides some classic bridal inspiration.

This year saw the reign of Saudi Arabian designers at Fashion Forward, as we admired Sara's collection for its simple, classic style. Featuring gentle lace and frills, in lightly-coloured palettes, Saudi designer Sara, alludes femininity in traditional bridal designs, finished with an elegant edge.
